Serving biblical edification with a side of humor
This podcast is food for my mind as well as my soul. So grateful for the ways it makes me think and enlightens me if new topics. For over 6 years, I have been an avid listener. The content has held consistent quality over the years. Also appreciate the balanced humor.
Recently I was a stranded motorist on the highway. Many people stopped to offer physical help, which is fine I guess. But one person stopped to offer theological help. He introduced me to this podcast, which I was able to listen to while I replaced the tire on my car. The time flew by as I listened to the humorous back and forth between Dr Johnson and Dr Lynch. One of them is significantly funnier than the other but I won’t say which.
The only downside (which almost pushed me to give a four star rating) is that they occasionally have a New Testament episode, which you have to skip through since that is not their area as they are Hebrew Bible scholars.
