Podcast Suggestions - a few more
In continuation of the previous blog post with podcast recommendations, here is another round of recommendations we want to share with you, our partners.
Podcasts are now here to stay and they enable us to listen to things we value or enjoy at our own convenience directly from our smartphones. I often am listening to podcasts while commuting, mowing the grass, watering plants, and even while washing the dishes. The podcasts I listen to are good resources for pioneering missionaries like us. They let us stay current with the latest happenings while helping to keep our souls refreshed as well. The podcasting platform is also a simple and great way for us to reach the lost as well; it's like having our own radio station without all the complexities and money necessary for running a real radio station!
Our eyes and ears are constantly bombarded with things that at best offer little to no edification, and at worst may lead us to sin against our Lord. Just like not all books in the Christian bookstore are good for your soul or worthy of your time and attention, so too not all podcasts are good for your soul and worthy of your time and attention. Here is a list of some more of our favorite podcasts and why we like and recommend them. We share them as tools that you could also benefit from as you live for Christ and wait His return.
- We recommend this podcast for getting short glimpses into church history. The episodes are short and easy to follow. Sadly, few Christians today have taken any time to know the history of the church. This podcast is helpful and can stir your heart to know your "family history" better.
The Dividing Line - Dr. James White
- We recommend this podcast for anyone wanting to deepen their faith and grow in sound doctrine and reasoning. James is a brilliant man and gift to the church. He is an important defender of the faith and has debated publicly on important matters more than most. Note: James has written important works also related to understanding the heresy of Roman Catholicism. If you begin listening to this podcast regularly you will find your knowledge of God and His word will continue to grow, thus increasing also your love for God Himself.
Reformanda Initiative - Leonardo de Chirico, Reid Karr, Clay Kannard
We recommend this made-in-Italy (Rome) podcast because it is unique in its task in teaching evangelicals to properly understand the fallacies of Roman Catholicism. Very important content.
Ask Ligonier - Nathan W. Bingham with Ligonier Ministries
- We recommend this podcast for everyone. In the olden days, Christians were much more able to answer questions like these. Sadly, today probably less than 50% of confessing evangelicals would be able to give good Biblical answers to these questions. The episodes are short and the answers are helpful for anyone wanting to broaden their faith foundation.
Simply Put - Barry Cooper with Ligonier Ministries
- We recommend this podcast for all Christians as it can help believers to get a firm foundation. Too few believers today have any foundation for their beliefs. This podcast takes complex and simple Biblical doctrines and teaches them in just a few minutes. Good for the whole family!
Provoked - Zack Morgan and Desi Maes with Apologia Studios
- We recommend this new podcast for their laid back approach on talking through matters that many just ignore. We appreciated two of their first episodes when they interviewed an evangelist. They are still just starting out, but so far they have done a good job and have good content.
The Plodcast - Douglas Wilson
- We recommend this podcast for all Christians. Doug can be controversial at times, but he is quite brilliant and bold. As a wordsmith he does a good job of engaging our times with sound reason and Biblical theology, something few are willing to do today.
Blog & Mablog - Douglas Wilson
- We recommend this podcast for all Christians. Doug can be controversial, but he is quite brilliant and bold. As a wordsmith he does a good job of engaging our times with sound reason and Biblical theology, something few are willing to do today.
