TBFNP has become my favorite podcast. At a time when I have become sceptical of God's hand in the writing and delivery of the Bible to us, Pete and Jerod show me how to still makes sense of the biblical record.

Podcasts like TBFNP have become church for me. At a time when I didn't feel welcome anywhere, I've discovered I'm not alone and that God is still speaking to me. I think I'm ready to listen now.
