Considering the Bible's saintly reputation, it packs surprising gore, horror, and depravity. As well as beauty, wisdom, and tedium. For millennia, the Bible has held Western culture captive to its strange stories of ancient people trying to figure out God. Maybe you're not religious, but you're curious about the Bible. Maybe you grew up in church, but you're looking for a new way to relate to the Bible. Welcome! We're Sam and Amanda. We're obsessed with the Bible. Sam is a liberal Presbyteri ...
 
Democracy depends on a free press, a government for the people, a just legal system and separate-but-free church. Yet, we have a corrupt U.S. president, a partisan Supreme Court, a power-hungry white evangelical bloc and a lazy press - which is revealing just how much our American values are being sold out. With a lot of informative guests and a few F-bombs, co-hosts Laurie Lattimore-Volkmann and Brad Raley are going to change that.

This is a talk show by progressive Christians for… well, we don’t care who listens. We want to bring up conversations that we know are happening in a lot of Christian communities and bring them to the forefront, with some levity and our tongues planted firmly in cheek. We know there are a lot of people of faith who support equal rights for everyone, who know that love is love, who believe that #BlackLivesMatter, who want to engage with faith in a different way than their parents did, and who ...
 
This is quite possibly the most comprehensive verse by verse treatment of the Book of Revelation ever written. David Chilton has tackled what Calvin and Luther never even attempted. Following in the train of thought of his Paradise Restored, Chilton sees the Church triumphant to the end with Satan defeated at the return of Christ. The Apostle John presents a vision of victorious Christians who overcome all opposition through the work of Jesus Christ. Chilton asserts that for too long the Chu ...
