Too Long; Didn’t Read is an irreverant look at a reverant book… it’s a podcast about the The Bible. This season, we’re uncovering the stories you didn’t learn in preschool. These aren’t cute. There aren’t coloring pages for them. They’re violent; weird; scandalous. And they’re part of the Bible for a reason. Wonder why? So do we.

Great double click
On stories I’d normally just glaze over
Context is king
Love it! Besides offering some cool, strange, and less touched on stories, the context this podcast offers is so helpful. I’m in the process of a year long Bible reading plan and listening has definitely helped deepen my understanding of stories I’ve already read and the lessons they have to offer.
I look very forward to these interesting and exciting stories in the Bible. Makes my day!
