Great Podcast

I’ve loved listening to out of curiosity. Nick does a really good job and is always well prepared with scripture and wisdom! Garland is in the podcast too

Awesome way to get others and yourself talk about the Bible

If you or people you know have issues with or doubts about certain aspects of the Bible, doctrine, the gospel, or the Christian walk, or if you’re just hungry for better equipping on how to process any of those things, then this podcast is for you.

Garland and Nick do an excellent job each of week of setting the scene for that week’s topic by discussing common, legitimate questions, doubts, cultural norms and trends, etc.

They then dive deep and do their best to drive at some clarity on that particular issue - with grace, sensitivity, and wisdom.

They aren’t tackling low hanging fruit either. Some of the topics have already been things that a lot of Christians may shy away from addressing or discussing, be it the sensitive or controversial nature of it, the fact that they may be embarrassed they have questions about it and are too afraid to ask - whatever it is, if Christians today are struggling with how to deal with or how to handle it, then you can probably count on it being on this podcast.

And that’s the awesome thing about it. By listening you can be made aware of these topics that are hot-button topics, be equipped to go further or discuss with someone else, as well as be edifies and encouraged in your own understanding.

Garland and Nick do an excellent job of being rigid and specific where the Bible is rigid and specific, and being flexible and vague where the Bible is flexible and vague. They don’t add to the Word or God and they don’t subtract from it. You’ll know when something is from Scripture and when something is their opinion. This may frustrate some listeners that they don’t get specific answers to their questions for some topics, but this kind of discipline and restraint to give the Word of God the ultimate say and authority is wise. Garland and Nick won’t lead you astray.

Got a work commute? Listen. Got a long drive? Listen. Got other riders with you? Even better; listen and discuss. Share with people you care about that are interested in those topics and follow up with them. Use this awesome resource!

Wise and biblical

Through the lens of grace-filled wisdom and insight, these are the scriptures-centric truths our modern culture needs to hear—for believer and non-believer alike. Excellent! I highly recommend!
