Is there value in reclaiming repentance? The word itself connotes different things for all of us and, in this episode, Jeff and Allen unpack the stuff it brings up for them. Is it condemnation or invitation? Transformation or challenge? After the conversation, they try to guess who said what on another edition of Famous Christians for 100.

Thank you to Bob37748 for your 5 star review in Apple Podcasts which says...

It speaks to me!

“I have only recently discovered this long running podcasts and I am only up to episode 10. I love it so far and based on the titles of the "future" podcast I can't wait to hear what they have to say. I am a disillusioned former evangelical wondering what to believe now. I still believe in God and Jesus, but I wonder what does that mean now. This podcast explores those issues.”
