Thoughtful, incisive, and genuine

Kyle and Christi do a fantastic job of putting forward and exploring what an egalitarian approach to marriage looks like in contrast to a complementarian approach. They make smart critiques of the complementarian perspective while maintaining a compassionate attitude and tone. Really interested to see where they go with this and what kind of topics they tackle. Keep up the good work, guys!

Thought-provoking and easy to listen to

Here's a snippet from Episode 6. Kyle was explaining how he tried to make sense of the command to love God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength. "I broke it down. I was like, OK. So with my *heart* I love God. And then my *mind.* But the *strength* part was weird because I'm like, I'm not in the gym that much, so maybe I should like...I literally thought this; this is so weird. But how do I love God with my *soul*? *That* I just skipped over." :)
