Voiced by veteran talk show host Adam McManus and written by radio-host and pastor Kevin Swanson and AP award-winning reporter, now pastor, Mark Robinette, The World View in 5 Minutes is a round-up of the daily news from a Biblical perspective.

You’ll get addicted to the most definitively Christian overview of the news including politics, pop culture, the church, and tracing God’s sovereign hand in the affairs of man.
