Love this show
Articulate. Resourced. And engaging! Jesus-centered all the way around. Jesus intelligence. Got me really thinking at a deeper level!
Jesus Smart is both challenging and encouraging
The podcasts are meaty and revelatory. They leave the listener feeling spiritually satisfied yet challenged, something that can be hard to find today. Listening to Jesus Smart will give you a fresh word to think through, that’s a true blessing!
A great idea with great content
I have become familiar with Brian's work, thanks to being on SubstanceTV, and it's cool to see (and listen) to how he's moving in a direction that enables his heart to speak on the brilliance of Jesus. Though the premise might sound high level for some - especially anyone curious or "seeking" - Brian has a seasoned voice and delivery that is inviting and engaging. Looking forward to see what other real-life applications he tackles in this podcast.
