Customer Reviews

very educated podcast

Sheldon Greaves produces a great podcast that fills the void for those seeking to know the story and facts between the lines in the Old Testament. I am so glad i found this.

Love it!

I love the combination of simplicity, academia, and devotional work

Exciting discovery!

I found this a few weeks ago - about 30 episodes into it - and I can’t drop it for other podcasts. I’m nearly done catching up - need to get onto other topics!

Sheldon is sympathetic yet critical toward the subject; as well informed as I’ve heard. He keeps my attention through even the most challenging of topics. At no point do I sense of lack of faith NOR a lack of critical stance - just what I’m looking for!
