Speaking Christianly about, well, all sorts of things. Each episode, I dissect a piece of Christian culture, theology, or practice to find out why we do the things we do and how we can do them better.
||CleanCriticism||Creativity is exciting but frequently derailed, discouraged, or diverted by criticism. So how do we, as ambassadors of Christ, give and receive criticism in a way that causes redemption?||10/30/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanCreativity||It is nice to be creative, but for a Christian it is imperative. You need to be creative is more than a simple desire to be an artist, it is a universal status that allows you to operate freely and fully under the Lordship of Christ.||9/3/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanA Divine Appointment||A divine appointment is a moment when God invades your world, interrupts your day, and makes it abundantly clear that He is present. But isn't God always present? Certainly, we don't always feel him but that doesn't mean God isn't there. Haven't you eve||4/26/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanMy Walk||It may seem banal and vague to talk about "our walks", but it's worth thinking about. How are we doing as Christians? Is there a goal to Christian living? And how do we make lasting changes in our lives?||2/22/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanThe War on Christmas||You have probably heard about the war on Christmas. You are at battle, so to speak, but not in the way you might think.||12/21/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanThe End Is Nigh!||Is the end of the world really near? Jesus is returning– imminently if not immediately– but when? Now that's a good question.||10/26/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanEveryday Truth: Imago Dei (feat. music by Caroline Cobb)||The big ideas and theology of Christianity shouldn't be locked in seminaries. Theology is for you. It should change the way you think and live. Today we cover the Imago Dei, the image of God, and try to figure out how our design changes everything.||9/17/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanIn The Word: Acts||Miracles, violence, punk rock, and a church led by a former terrorist- and that's just the first half. The book of Acts is a wild, unsafe, deep book full of stories we never read. Come check it out.||7/16/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanQuiet Time||Nothing is more "youth group" than talking about quiet times. They sure seemed important at the time, but I still don't know many people who have figured them out. What were our youth pastors talking about? It it really important to have a scheduled tim||6/15/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDoubt||Doubt is often seen as the enemy of faith. But that is not true. We can use our doubt to reject God or we can follow our questions into deeper faith, hope, and dependance on God. All the music on this episode comes from South of Royal's debut album "Del||5/8/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanInvite Jesus Into Your Heart or The Sinner's Prayer||Many evangelicals believe that you become a Christian by inviting Jesus into your heart, reapeating a simple prayer that brings salvation. But is that really all there is to it? Why do people feel like they have to say it over and over again? Is it a t||4/7/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanGuard Your Heart||What is your heart? and why should you protect it? If you think this is just about dating, you're going to be surprised.||3/5/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanWhat is an Evangelical?||In the wake of an exhausting election cycle many Christians have been left wondering, "What is an Evangelical?" In fact, many who once thought of themselves as evangelicals are questioning if they still are- or ever were to begin with. So, what is an ev||1/29/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanThe Trinity||The Trinity is a foundational doctrine in Christianity, but actually describing it is particularly difficult. It may be complex, but it is neither inaccessible nor impractical. Understanding God's Triune nature will change the way you live.||1/8/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanGod Told Me...||What does God sound like? How do you know God has spoken to you? Often we desire an experience over the Word of God. But the truth is, the Word is much more satisfying than any fleeting experience.||12/16/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanIn the Word: The Story of the Old Testament||We all know Bible stories, but do you know how they all fit together? The story of the Old Testament is an epic tale that looks an lot like our own lives and leads us to look for the coming Messiah.||11/23/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanHedge of Protection||You may have heard someone pray for a hedge of protection and wondered what good a row of bushes could possibly do for anyone. Besides, do we need to pray for protection to actually receive it? And how does God actually protect us? Do we have guardian a||11/1/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#Blessed||We all want to be blessed and many of believe we already are. But if you were to ask five people to define blessing, you would get five different answers. What is blessing and what should we expect God to give us?||10/17/2016||Free||View in iTunes|

This is so thoughtful, insightful, and well curated. I am recommending this to friends and sharing on my social media feeds and in daily conversations. Wow!
I just came across this podcast, and was really impressed with the content and production! Drew has a very smooth, listenable voice, and seems to have a very good, objective, wise, and Bible-focused view of a range of contemporary topics. I hope more people find this and he makes more podcasts!
I’ve missed this podcast so much! Nice to see that Drew is back being creative!
