Powerful series

Open Doors podcast is an extremely challenging podcast as it brings alive a world of Christianity that is unfamiliar to the western church. Mike and James challenge our views in relation to persecution from something to avoid to one that honours Jesus ultimately for his glory. If you’re willing to be challenged out of luke-warmness and grow towards a closer knowledge of God’s work in this world then this podcast is highly recommended
