Consider starting or finishing your days running up to the deep mystery of Christmas listening to A. W. Tozer’s exquisite classic examining the attributes of God. All 11 episodes available for free via the Into the Pray podcast!
This podcast deals with the profound arrogance, hypocrisy and inhumanity of new atheism as well as once again highlighting the historic fault lines in the chaos of the Church that we believe perfectly explain why a self-identifying ex-‘Christian’-cum-atheist can think and type like this.
