Outer Space


Outer Space

with Jeffery Williams + Deborah Haarsma

Some would say that an ancient faith like Christianity won’t survive outer space — especially as we explore further than we ever have before. 

This episode is sponsored by Zondervan’s new book ‘The Theology of Paul and His Letters’ by Douglas J Moo.
