Reviews For Bible Study Podcasts

I love this study and use it to help me lead a class on the Bible. I had to up grade my phone to the iPhone “x” and now the podcast will not play I hope this is just a hiccup and it will be back soon . Keep up the good work thanks ... it’s working now thank you !!!!!!!!!!!
My husband and I are learning so much through this podcast!
Thank you for this podcast! Excellent bible studies! I listen to the same ones over and over!! Praise our Great Lord Savior!! King of Kings!
So grateful for a podcast that just truly sticks the to word and has great insight to learn, appreciate and dive in for all levels.
When telling stories from the Bible and explaining them, and when applying them at the micro level, this is an excellent podcast. When attempting to apply theology to political or economic systems, opinions prevail. That part is straight up false teaching. Jesus didn’t critique socialism ever, and scripture and parables can be manipulated to defend or critique it all day long. The problem is that these systemic critiques distract from our personal responsibility for pursuing a path to become more like Jesus. It works like this: 1) critique socialism as being based on Marxist ideology (ignoring that capitalism is also based on Marxist ideology), 2) use examples of countries that have mixed socialism and authoritarian political control to show socialism is bad (ignoring European and Canadian social justice programs that care for all people, including the least of these), 3) use a parable of Jesus about the vineyard owner who gave the same to the first worker as the last (ignoring that this is about giving up our selfish desires for fairness, and instead applying to systems of social justice... not Jesus’ point), 4) suggest grace is equally given to regardless of when we came to Jesus (this is truth), and 5) critique notions of justice and equality as not being based in the Bible (false conclusion from manipulating the logic). There is so much flawed logic in this but the Biblical teaching is so good that one needs to use deep discernment to say the parable explanation is good and the application to personal spiritual development is good, but the application to social justice and socialism is flawed. If you don’t use that discernment, the risk is that you think it is a proper application to not vote for Bernie Sanders because he advocates that the rich poor gap needs to be closed and that is socialism. Please! Jesus said that we need to take individual responsibility for serving the least of these. He also said it is easier for a camel to get through an eye of a needle than a rich man to get into heaven. Why? Because a fixation on $ is a false idol, which detracts from putting God first. And not serving the least of these is not loving your neighbor as ourselves. These are the two most important commandments. Voting against Bernie creates the false impression that you did something for the church, but it does nothing for your personal spiritual growth. In conclusion, listen to the Biblical teaching and personal application, but ignore the politics, political and economic system application/discussion.
There are few podcasts out there that you can listen to and learn from everyday despite quirks, annoyances or lack of interests and consequently, this podcast isn’t one of those. Toby is obnoxious in every way, from his terrible jokes, over-the-top holier than thou aura, the way he randomly whispers into the mic to come off more spiritual or just the fact that his voice is annoying. However, there are SOME days I’m able to listen and ignore ALL of those things. Those are the rare days I’m able to see he is quite knowledgeable. But you can easily tell he’s no fun to hang out with, which, for me, makes him next to impossible to listen to.
I cannot praise this podcast enough. If you want to learn about the Bible, you won’t find much better.
The app keeps telling me that each scripture i click on is unavailable what is going on

Really good teaching!
How disrespectful to call out preachers that you do not agree with by name. Just because they are teaching a message you don't necessarily agree with, this gives you absolutely no right to judge them. Great job acting what you preach.
This is a great tool to get deeper insights into scripture. I'm currently listenting to the Phillipians series. This podcast has helped me see the motifs that are carried on throughout the book and shown me truths I have overlooked. However, I can do without the tangents Logsdon go on. Many of the times he doesn't provide scriptural reference to the tangents. Just stating your opinion without biblical backing and clarity muddys the water of hearing clearly what God's word is saying. Thanks for providining these podcasts.
I/ve been listening to Toby since the very beginning and I appreciate his teaching style. I appreciate that over time, he has answered my questions so that I can spread the word to my non believer friends. I highly recommend this podcast
I stumbled upon these podcasts last year and am very glad I did. They have so much Biblical truth in them and really help apply these things. I highly recommend these to everyone. These cover so many different topics and use the Bible to find the answers. Very Biblically based. I honestly have no idea what the people are talking about who rated this a 1. Keep letting GOD use you for HIS glory Toby!
I was looking for this podcast to be about studying the bible and deepening our faith and ways to live out our Christianity. Instead what I found was that this is a podcast about using the bible to unlovingly beat unbelievers into believing. He ties every lesson back to, in his own words, "giving Christians ammunition to use against skeptics and unbelievers." This is not the way to show the world that Christians are loving and accepting. I apologize to anyone who listened to these podcasts and felt threatened, unloved, or like their beliefs did not matter. The reputation of Christ's church has been irreversibly damaged because people like this say they are respecting and loving you in God's name, and then claim that their opinions are the only correct ones, and are unwilling to hear opposing viewpoints.
I just started listening to Romans one and you are on point. I like the idea for all the studies being available on Itunes. These studies are priceless and if you have to ask for donations so what. The real Christains would give a donation instead talking nonsense. Ignore the haters and keep up the great work!!!
I hoped to find a rational approach to the bible with someone younger, but found just the opposite. It's because of 'young earth' creationists like Toby that the U.S. is doomed. The rest of the developed world has moved on from thinking like this while so many in the U.S. are sliding backward, and as such it will likely result in fostering a larger community of fundamentalists. I mean, come on!!! Not even clergy - the Vatican for goodness sake - deny evolution! This guy is just scary.

I love to listen to truth of the bible in this great podcast.
Easy to listen to and from work. Love to listen during my breaks and lunch. Toby does a wonderful job bringing the scriptures to life. Many thanks and blessings. I pray your podcast continues to enlighten people.
For years I've felt a disconnect to God. I've always known he's there and vaguely known the stories of Jesus, but after fully converting to Christianity last year I've been so "hungry" for the word so I figured if I listened to this podcast to understand the bible better and what I found was an understanding of my faith including the bible. Toby takes time to talk about logical implications of our great God. I know not only have my faith but reason to help bring others to Christ. I feel so blessed to have come across this :)
I cannot express my gratitude to you Toby , I was raised in a christian house but by my high school years I strayed from the path. I stumbled upon this podcast and listen everyday !! Thank you so much for helping me bring god back into my life . Keep up the good work :)
This is my daddy's pod cast. And JIMocrocy, your just mean my daddy is very nice and he is trying to sell Christian books to give to people in our church

It's sad to see that this program is teaching the doctrine of man. Speak where the Bible speaks And be silent where the bible is silent.
This is a great podcast that teaches a lot. Now I do wish the lessons were set up one after the other, I could not find the second episode of "GET THE HELL OUT".
I am really appreciating all the teaching you have here. As a new listener, I decided to start with The Essentials. Great teaching and foundation for all the other studies. Great work!!
I listen to several podcasts,but none come close to being as informative as this one.Toby has a remarkable gift of teaching.He explains things in such detail.If you are looking to understand the bible better or just have some questions about Christianity then this is definitely a podcast you should check out.Thanks Toby.
I have been listening to Toby's podcasts for almost 2 years. I don't listen as much as I used to, but that is only because I can't keep up with how fast he is putting them out. I do, however, find time to listen slowly. Catching up isn't in my near future though! Toby is great...he is really professional/and scripturally sound..He has helped my deal with certain topics that were hard for me to grasp on my own. I feel like Timothy being made into a disciple by Paul. My walk of faith wouldn't be possible without God's moving in Toby's life to allow me and many others to listen in! Thanks a million Toby..and keep it up...God is using you in so many awesome ways! and to the guy that thinks Toby should do this for free...why don't you try running a server that gets SO MANY downloads daily for free!
Thus far from listening to roughly 10 podcasts I have found this material to be doctrinally sound; which is really great because its all too often you find material today that is the complete opposite. Keep up the great work Toby, I find your work to be inspiring and very helpful in my daily life as I am sure many others do as well! All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17 NASB)
I listened to one podcast this morning before work and found it very encouraging. I look forward to tomorrow when I can listen again. Toby seems very knowlagable and Bible based.
You don't even put out very much content any more. I listened to this podcast for over three years and over time, the weekly content has drastically reduced while the pleas for cash are persistent and desparate. Either you are going to get paid for podcasting and have an obligation to produce more content or you do it for free (like a real Christian would) and podcast as a hobby. Anyhow, I have unsubscribed and I am done with you, Toby.
Listening to these podcasts is very insightful and uplifting. It not only provides you the opportunity to get familiar with the bible, it provides insight from a very valuable perspective that enables you to include Christian principles to secular life. I find this as yet another asset to strenghthen my relationhip with God and I find myself becoming more active with my role as a Christian. I highly recommend listening to this--praiseworthy!
May god bless you Tony....
This podcast is a great way to become more familiar with the Bible and general societal issues that Christians face every day. I recently downloaded the whole archive and often find myself listening to 4 or 5 episodes per day. The hosts are knowledgeable and are always open to questions from the listeners. The podcast does go through the scriptures slowly at times, but the knowledge gained is well worth the time. 4 out of 5 stars.
These lessons are straight forward and the meaassage is "in my face" just the way it ought to be. May God's Grace continually shine upon you.
I listened to a few lessons and I was honestly hesitant at first. It had been years since I had anything to do with the Catholic faith and I had occassionaly attended at best. I was always doubtful and inclined to believe that the Bible was true in some areas but very hard to believe in others. I realized that the podcasts built off of previous lessons so I decided to start from the very beginning. Very quickly, I began to enjoy the inspired and engaging messages taught directly from the Bible. There was truth being spoken of that struck a chord in the small ukelele that was my dwindling faith. I found myself putting all of my other daily podcasts on the back burner! And so it has been for the last 2.5 months. I'm slowly catching up to the present lessons by listening to 3-4 podcasts a day (I have a very long commute which has now become my time to learn about the Bible, I really look forward to it!). Technically I'm still in Sep. of 2008. If you are struggling with your faith or are having trouble with tough questions about Christianity, please download this podcast and be open to receiving truth. I truly believe that God has used this medium to convict me in my faith more than I've ever been. It will lead you on your way to explore the truth that is His Word.
After over two decades of running away from our God, I have, in the past few months been struggling to renew my walk with God. One reason I have been having victory is Bible Study Podcasts. I bought an ipod and filled it with an audio bible and podcasts like this one. By far this podcast is the primary one that I listen to. Instead of feeding my head with anything else (like TV or radio), throughout much of every day, whenever I can, I am listening to the audio Bible or to this ministry. During these very difficult months having the word always before me through the use of podcasts has been invaluable...It works! Try it :)

This is a really great, in-depth podcast that answers several tough questions about Christianity. I've learned a lot from this podcast and I hope many others find out about it and do the same! Keep up the fantastic work Toby! God Bless
GREAT job Toby. Your podcast is one of the best, keep it up!! I'm always waiting for the next podcast to come out. Again, you are doin a fine job.
I just started listening and so far I enjoy the podcast. I haven't agreed with every interpretation I have heard, but that is part of the point of this wonderful podcast. It is making me think deeply about questioning scripture [questioning to understand], making sure things are kept in context [to use Toby's words] and not simply taking on the belief of a speaker/teacher/minister simply because they are eloquent, popular, etc. I like Toby because he is passionate and engaging without being overbearing or sanctimonious [sp]. I would like however if at the beginning of each podcast that Toby would have given an idea of the passages to be referenced so I could have them pre-marked in my bible [still a little slow understanding what order everything is in...sorry...well that's what the rewinds button is for I guess]. But that is a minor, minor issue on what is a very well done, knowledgeable, thought provoking podcast. Continue the good work, God bless and know there are many of us out there longing for better understanding of the bible in a way that allows us to think thru it; versus simply being told "this is the way it is."

I enjoy this Pod Cast. It is good to make me think about my christian life.
I came across this one by accident, not knowing it was just what I was looking for. Great job, keep it up.
Toby Logsdon really is great. he explains the book of romans and sin and temptation etc very well. he speaks in a clear voice. his voice is easy to listen to and isnt boring if your a christ follower especially a new one. this podcast will be perfect for you :)

Thank you! all I can say is thank you!
After weeks of looking for a Jesus-centered, apologetics-style bible study podcast, I found this one and began listening to it regularly. Toby has a humble, yet knowledgeable way of explaining himself. He obviously puts a lot of effort into preparing each episode and presents it in a systematic way that just makes it easy to understand God's word. After listening to more than a dozen episodes, I do not hesitate in recommending this Podcast! Keep it up Clean Slate!
This podcast deals with solid scripture and contains no filler. Listen to this weekly teaching if you want to know the truth and nothing but the truth. Let Toby pour some spiritual water onto your seed and assume the position to grow. JG
I am a new born again christian. I have the urge to constantly know more about the word. I have listened to the bible 2-3 times now, and everytime understand something new. I have found that certain bible studies are great because you get to hear an educated detailed view of the context of the word. These bible studies are great and it keeps you wanting to come back for more. Great job and congrats on graduating from simenary.
Great podcast! If you are looking for true insight into the Bible then you have found the right place!
Toby really knows his stuff, and it's a blessing that he can pass everything he's learning on to his fellow Christians. I wholeheartedly recommend this podcast to everyone, ESPEICALLY those who enjoy Christian apologetics.
Great podcast. Just what I need to jumpstart my bible study
