Excellent resource!!!

As an Indian church planter among a huge South Asian diaspora in New York City , this podcast is a goldmine. Dr. Wright’s books have been very influential in my understanding of God’s mission. Not only has he lived, ministered and taught as a respected bible scholar in Asia but under his leadership, Langham is raising leaders like Rich and fulfilling Matthew 24:14
Thank you for sharing this excellent resource. What a great interview to begin with! I am looking forward to listening to every episode🙏🏾
