Curiosity. This ingredient alone led to the creative Podcast: "Stuff You Missed: In the Bible, In Church History." What is really going on behind the scenes? What am I missing? What context led to historical events such as the Inquisition, the Crusades, the Salem Witch Trials, the Holocaust, etc... And what am I missing in the context of the Bible that is not explicit in the text? Each Podcast is designed to mine those wonderful insights and help us all better understand stuff we have been missing.

Balanced and thought provoking
This is a great podcast which takes a balanced and nuanced approach to scripture and theology. I have learned a lot & this podcast gives much to think about in an open and nonjudgmental way. I like how he incorporates context, study & interpretation, & does not have an agenda other than understanding Jesus & his teachings in an open way. Very deep and thoughtful.
Well done, thoughtful, complex, worth listening!
