Big fan !!!
Erin, Jamie, & Knox are so amazing! The binge is an amazing podcast with such awesome views on stories we’ve heard. I love they are people who love Jesus and love people. Being raised in a southern/fundamental baptist church this podcast has made me look closer at the Bible, and know that it’s okay to not know. also. They are so relatable. I’ve honestly convinced myself I’m friends with them.
From the beginning
I found this podcast after our pastor told us to binge the Bible. Now he was not talking about this podcast but when I searched for binge the Bible online, this podcast came up. What a blessing! I decided to go back to the beginning of the podcast and listen to each episode. I’m still working on getting to the newest episodes but am learning.so.much! Thank you, Knox and Jamie! Also I just downloaded Knox’s book! Great work, guys!
Breath of fresh air
Going to church has been hard in past year. I‘ve been committed to living and serving in a very conservative denomination for my whole life. Over the past years, it’s gotten harder and harder to fit in that space. This podcast has sincerely kept my faith going at times. Knowing that I’m not alone in my questions and hang ups has made all the difference. Thank you.
