Recently I started listening to the podcast of Dr. Stephen Nichols called 5 Minutes in Church History. It’s a weekly podcast that, as the title implies, is about five minutes in length. The value this brief podcast brings to believers today is connecting us to those who have gone before us. Christianity of today cannot be lived in isolation of the Christianity of the past, in fact to do so posses a great danger as heresies and false doctrines filter into our churches. We must stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before us and who connect us back to the early church fathers, to the apostles and of course to Jesus Christ himself. So I would encourage you to add this brief podcast to your listening line up. You can find more information here.
