Revisionist History is Malcolm Gladwell's journey through the overlooked and the misunderstood.

Because sometimes the past deserves a second chance.

The History of Christianity

When I became a believer, I somehow had the false assumption that Christianity began when I got saved.

I have found that many believers, young and old, have the same false assumption. The purpose of this broadcast is to dispel this notion by sharing with listeners the history o ...
