I’m addicted to podcasts and audiobooks. Everyday I listen to podcasts and before bed I always have an audiobook I’m working through, so I thought I would recommend a few of my favourites, that may be lesser known.
Don Fortner is a free grace preacher and I have been a faithful listener for years now. If you have read my blog you’ll notice it’s littered with quotes from Fortner’s sermons and I will always recommend his work. He’s a faithful preacher, sometimes prickly, but always faithful.
If you want a dose of free grace, Calvinistic preaching, Don Fortner is your man.
Theocast is a biblically Reformed podcast that deals with subjects such as Christian freedom, covenant theology, Calvinism, issues in the local church, etc. The fellas are easy to listen to, theologically deep and irenic.
Give them a listen!
I’m a World War 1 buff and find the entire period fascinating. War became industrialized, Christianity had become infected with German theological liberalism and the world changed forever. The battles were horrific and the men and women who fought and lived through it were heroic.
It’s not theological but one I’ve enjoyed. Maybe you will to.
Issues, Etc. is linked with Lutheran Public Radio and I’m new to the podcast. It was recommended to me yesterday and I’ve jumped right in and learned a lot already. Two episodes worth listening to are Evangelism and Eastern Orthodoxy with Dr. Michael Horton being interviewed by the host of the show. Dr. Horton is well known in Reformed and Lutheran circles for his participation in The White Horse Inn radio and podcast program.
If you want a conservative Lutheran perspective check out this podcast.
Saving my new favourite podcast for last, Cathedral Church of the Advent. The sermons and lectures cover a range of subjects including Karl Barth, the 39 Articles, Lent, etc. I’ve had this podcast on my phone for some time but only recently started to listen to it…obsessively.
If you want a slightly more Anglican flavour this is the one.
The Mighty Weakness of John Knox has been one of my favourite audiobooks for the past year and I’ve listened to it three times already. The narration is perfect and the information about Knox is informative and dramatic. When Knox was a galley slave held by French Catholics they tried to force him to kiss an icon of St. Mary, they forced it into his hands and he tossed it into the river declaring, “she seems light enough to swim!”
Knox’s piety will challenge you, the man was a true prayer warrior and Gospel preacher worth reading about.
The Institutes of the Christian Religion is a title I borrow every month from hoopla digital (many libraries offer hoopla with free downloads). The narrator is ok but it’s really the content I enjoy. During the warmer months I walk or cycle to work and this audiobook is playing when I doing my ‘hood ride’ home.
The fact that this is a freebie for most of us with library cards is a no brainer.
Chuckle if you want but Johnny Cash Reads the New Testament is pretty awesome. His reading of Revelation has tremendous impact.
Well folks, that’s all for now.
Yours in the Lord,
