That on guy Bob ,

TRG

This is my favorite podcast by far! I am a gamer dad and a reformed Christian. This show blends gaming and faith in a way that is so entertaining. I gain so much encouragement from these guys and I look forward to listening to them for years to come.

MattCrumbley ,

Apparently, I never rated this...

It's one of my favorite shows. They've done a great job of weaving in deep, spiritual content with video games. The sound quality is excellent, and the guys make listening a lot of fun!

Jagged logging job ,

Is it possible!?!?

Thanks for doing the seemingly impossible and not making Christian entertainment cheesy. Too many Christians are afraid to use the fun gifts that God has given us, like video games, to show that God is fun and not a boring God. Love the Godly advice you give (especially the what your reading segment) and really love that this is equally entertaining me and challenging me in my walk with God. Would love to play some games with you guys one day and hope to see the podcast grow for the glory of God!
