There aren’t coloring pages for them. They’re violent; weird; scandalous. And they’re part of the Bible for a reason. Wonder why? So do we.

    8: The Revelation Special

    Revelation might be the most misunderstood—and for that reason, also the most ignored—book in the entire Bible. But as weird as it feels, wrestling with Revelation can be deeply impactful. Eric and Mae get together for a special one-off bonus episode to help demystify the end of the Bible... and the world.

Context is king

Love it! Besides offering some cool, strange, and less touched on stories, the context this podcast offers is so helpful. I’m in the process of a year long Bible reading plan and listening has definitely helped deepen my understanding of stories I’ve already read and the lessons they have to offer.
