I really want to listen to this show more often, because they have a lot of great scholars on it. But every time I have to force myself to listen to Octavio. He is just so annoying. I feel like he turns down the quality of the show every time, and does not even realize it.

Podcast cover

In this episode, renowned American historian Mark Noll recounts how a growing awareness of the majority world church confronted and changed his understanding of Christian history.
