Layman’s Delight

As a layman with a regular job, who has come to dearly love biblically sound teaching, this podcast gives me an even greater appreciation for how deeply Dr. Sproul and Dr. MacArthur have delved into the faith. As they minister from the pulpit, they are sharing from decades of prayer, diligent study, and hours of wrestling with the great writers whom God has called for His great purpose. Thank you Dr. Nichols for serving your listeners well with this wonderful podcast.
