Customer Reviews

Incredibly Informative!

I don't agree with all that is said, but that's the point. First Things brings together some of the most influential yet disparate voices in Christianity today. As a Confessional Lutheran, I find myself agreeing with most of what is said, despite the denominational differences. Even when I disagree with the speaker, the issues are always addressed in a thoughtful manner by highly educated individuals. Highly recommend!

Excellent idea

Thanks for doing this! The conversations are thoughtful and thought-provoking. An excellent supplement to the print and online editions of First Things. Anxiously awaiting more podcasts!

Enjoy but technically there are issues.

I would give First Things 5 stars for the content, but whatever software they use to edit/master/release is deserving of a single start. It stinks. I can't cue up at all, you cannot fast forward. I tried to resume the podcast in First Things at about 14 minute mark in a Sept. 2016 episode, and I'm hearing the introduction again. The podcast may only be 30+ minutes, but iTunes says it is over 4 hours and 40 minutes. I still have an old Zu-- player (yes, I was bad before), and it wasn't any better so it is not Apple's fault. I listen to episodes of something like 6 other podcasts. None have this problem. I have commented on one of their blog posts, and no response from them. So, the podcast gets 3 starts. 1 star technically, and 5 stars for content.
