This week Most Certainly True breaks from the usual format to bring you a Special Reformation Episode. Some might even say Extra Special. Guests Dr. Wade Johnston, WLC professor, and Rachel Jankovic, author, join the show for an investigative look at culture of yesterday and today, the Reformation, and how God’s Word gives Christ back to us as often as you read it. Listen to find out how we discover our narrative completely outside of ourselves, how social media is the new printing press, and what President Josh Schermerhorn prays for when he thinks of the members at Grace. Grab a blanket and cozy up...this is a collect call you definitely want to take!
