Wow. Great theological discussions and an awesome host. This is a unique and insightful program if you're into deep Christian thought and end times prophesies. I got hooked a few months back on this program (P.I.D) when just blind searches on iTunes. A very cool podcast.
Derek Gilbert Drinking Game
Really enjoy the VFTB perspective on current events based on the Bible and ancient history. Recently, started playing the 'Derek Gilbert Drinking Game'. Every time Derek mentions his book while interviewing a guest, you have to take a shot.
My doctor is advising me to stop listening to the podcast as my liver is shot. However, I'm hoping Derek focuses more on his guest and less on his own book and writings. Otherwise, I might need a 12-step program.
Wise use of your time
Derek and Sharon bring credible interviews, thoughtful discussion and grounded thinking on interesting subjects from an informed Christian perspective. They recognize the wide field of views we all hold (and wrestle with) without judgement. They understand we only see part of the picture (1 Corinthians 8:2) but hold clearly to the truth of Jesus as our only way to Salvation. They put a lot of work into these programs and seem to be highly motivated to provide something useful instead of just trying to catch and monetize our attention.
