You and I are living in an epic season of the history of God.

When you know how to read the signs, you can easily see that there’s a tidal wave of God’s power and glory approaching the shore.

Are you ready to go out and meet that wave?

In this episode of the Bear Woznick Adventure, I’m joined by Mike Aquilina — Early Church expert and one of our most popular guests on the show.

Together we’re going to discuss:

How the Early Church faced pandemics, persecutions, and wars, and how their example can help us overcome similar adversities

How you and I ought to be preparing for the coming tidal wave of God’s power and glory (HINT: It’s not complicated.)

How the Early Church met a similar wave of God’s glory, and what they did to prepare for it

Why Mike’s favorite document from the Early Church is a novel (you read that right!)

And much more…
