Beyond the Top 3
More than a dozen episodes received votes, and ranking them becomes particularly difficult. (There was a 5-way tie for 4th place!) But we wanted to highlight some of your thoughtful feedback about a a handful of episodes outside the top 3.
Many of you found our conversation with Jeff Struecker about Afghanistan to be uniquely helpful. Here are some of your comments:
- “I enjoyed the perspective of someone who has military and pastoral experience on a topic with so much murkiness. Often you get an analytical military perspective or a compassionate international perspective, but not one that can consider both perspectives.” — Austin W.
- “I really appreciated the perspective offered by the guest. I knew I could trust what he said because he has been on the ground in Afghanistan and has seen first hand the ideologies that war there. His biblical perspective was helpful and I learned a lot about what is going on there.” — Esther W.
Earlier this fall, we talked with Christian pediatrician Lori Langdon about COVID, vaccines, and more. Andrew W. appreciated her insights:
- “As a parent, I found this podcast episode an extremely informative, helpful, engaging, and accessible resource to think through the topic of the COVID-19 vaccine for my kids.”
Finally, this comment about our episode with Joshua Swamidass highlights the very spirit we want to cultivate at the L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture:
- “Hearing a perspective from which we disagree is helpful. Also, the grace and understanding demonstrated by Dr. Keathley toward a view much different than his own is helpful and serves as an example to Christians in how to disagree compassionately.” — Josh P.
