    This has been such a useful podcast in my husband and my education on early church history. Between a great book we’ve found and this podcast, our awareness of what actually occurred after the times the Bible talks about has greatly increased. Thanks for all of the work you’ve put into this!!

    • Hi JennaL!

      Thank you for the good word! I apologize for the lack of new content the past few months. I’ve been dealing with some podcasting burnout. Right now I’m working on a new schedule for 2017. Thanks again for your support of the show. I’m happy you and your husband have found it useful and educational.

  3. Hi Terry,

    Just started listening to your podcasts. (I am at the Tertullian episodes). Really great work you are doing here! Your personal enthusiasm for this subject speaks clearly from your podcasts. Some years ago I started to become very much interested (and read so many books by now) in Byzantine history. And from that perspective, I also became interested in Church history. Two subjects which are very much interlinked. Thank you for all your work ! I mostly listen while working out on my step-trainer, which by now is something to look out for, because I can then listen to your podcasts ! Greetings from the Netherlands.

    • Hi Renebroekhoven!

      Thanks for the good word. I’m glad you’re enjoying the podcast. I love studying Byzantine history as well. I would definitely check out Robin Pearson’s The History of Byzantium podcast,, if you haven’t already.
