Makes me not feel crazy!
This show has helped me find hope after leaving the evangelical church world. If you're not sure where you fit, listen!
Deeply academic and challenging. Tim and Nate make theological discussions that are so unexplored very accessible. Can't wait to hear more!
The way Tim reads the Bible is encouraging and helpful even to me. ;) He points out stuff I never saw before and it helps me feel hopeful that there is a better way forward for the church in America. Had to leave a review cus of how awesome Tim is!
