Great weekly show for the believer and non-believer alike
I enjoy listening to Greg and his interactions with callers. He will speak with anyone in a respectful manner whether they be Christian, atheist or something else. The information presented is from the Christian viewpoint, which I appreciate, and it does not deviate from the Bible. What you get is what there is - I've never heard Greg add anything extra onto the Bible or switch something around to cater to his personal preferences or twist something to suit his point. I think this Podcast helps others to keep from making the same mistakes of twisting, misrepresenting or just plain getting it wrong when it comes to Christianity and what the Bible REALLY says. I've learned a lot from this Podcast and it's always nice to hear two sides of the discussion - Greg frequently speaks with atheist callers and I am amazed at how respectful both he and the callers are. It's so great to hear legitimate, thoughtful and respectful discussion on the most important issue that humanity is faced with.
Definitely among the best talk shows.
I have listened to Greg for three years off and on. He has a fantastic gift of teaching and thinking coupled with a humble and gentle heart.
This podcast will challenge the way you think and encourage you in the Truth.
