Praise God

This is one of the best podcasts I’ve ever listened to. Studying theology in seminary school often had me leave more knowledgeable but also conceited. This podcast, however, often leaves me both more knowledgeable and praising God, the way studying theology should be. Thanks Barry and Ligoneer for your service to the Lord.
