Christian & Rock, but not Christian Rock

This podcast is able to do two things very well. On the one hand, it can dive deep into the apologetical, historical, theological waters and communicate the truths therein so that normal people can understand. But on the otherhand, this podcast is not dry or boring. It is quite witty, well-paced and present to the culture; specifically nerd culture & classic rock. This a great podcast for the Christian and those investingating the Christian faith.

Really enjoyable!

As a nerd in many area including theology, Marvel, Star Wars, LOTR and more, I appreciate this podcast’s perspective and heart in teaching/defending the truths of Christianity

If you enjoy Apologetics and Rock you’ll enjoy this

Three Chords and The Truth offer great insights to handling apologetic situations. They speak to points atheist might bring against the Christian faith and walk you through how to interact with said points. Also, being able to look at a different rock song and how this song, even if written by an unbeliever, has some truth sprinkled in it. Bonus: the infinity gauntlet is one of the best things in the podcast universe. You never know the question that will be pulled out but you know you’ll never be disappointed with the dilemma presented.

Hilarious, Faith Building Fun

Can’t recommend this podcast enough. Every episode is a perfect mixture of apologetic thought, phenomenal chemistry between hosts & guests, and hilarious interactions with culture that make you laugh out loud while you’re being challenged to think Christianly about music and pop culture. Fantastic resource for youth leaders/pastors as well.

Nerdy, funny, edifying

Searching Apple Podcasts for “apologetics”, I didn’t expect to see a U2 reference. I certainly didn’t expect to hear nerdy (and funny, and deep) conversations about superhero movies and rock n’ roll to go along with the apologetics. And yet, these are 3 things that I think about. I’m glad to find a couple other nerds who do the same. In the end, all human forms of expression (like music and film) grapple with the big questions that can only be satisfactorily answered by the Bible. I was hooked after listening to my first episode. I had been wondering for years about how Judas Iscariot really died — now I have more peace about it than ever before. OK, now for the gratuitous attempt at humor.... I’m Clay Jonesin’ for one o’ them fancy capos! (Just got me a new acoustic and it needs one!)Q: If indeed the hundreds of witnesses to Jesus’s resurrection were having a collective hallucination, what would be another name for this?A: The world’s first solipsist convention!Finally... I haven’t found anything that Garrick is wrong about yet, but y’all should know: Eddie Money lives!

If I were one of Europe’s greatest leaders....

....and I found myself trapped in San Dimas I would totally listen to this podcast because, unlike Nickelback, it rocks.

Wonderfully delightful

This podcast is more important than my DMin project proposal. I know this to be true because my coach for writing the proposal was non other than Garrick co-host with the most. And come Thursday crunch hour with the deadline looking us in the eye- Garrick takes off for half the day to record the podcast. Don’t worry- no one was hurt by his absence (mostly because he had already gotten us all sorted out before he ditched us). But enough about that- this is supposed to be a review about the podcast. I only learned about it when I Garrick took off and I had to research it and make sure he just didn’t like sitting in the basement of the library with us. So I have only listened to two episodes so far and both have been great. Timothy Paul Jones and Garrick Bailey weave insightful apologetic truth with rock and roll music to not only enlarge the listeners brain case but also strengthen the listeners grip on the truth of our faith. Recommend highly... already told my dad who enjoyed it- but don’t get too excited since he has an hour and half commute every morning and will listen to anything. This review is being written while driving (really riding since my wife is driving) on a family vacation. It really helps drown out the paw patrol episodes playing for our kids. While I was aiming at funny I will also include something that Garrick is wrong about- which was how many surveys I should have in my proposal- it is okay, I enjoyed making those extra 3 surveys for fun. But all joking aside- thank you for all your help! You made that project easier than I was making it in my head. And you also gave me advice that will always stick with me, “you use a lot of words to say things.” Listen to this podcast! Adam

Fun and Informative

Come for the theology and apologetics, stay for the classic rock and comic books (or vice versa). Either way, Three Chords and the Truth is fun, digestible, and packed with a lot of good truth.

Great mix of content in a podcast!

I'm a big fan of podcasts and this one is so helpful for the Christian or non-Christian wrestling with hard concepts or passages of the Bible without being too academic or dry. I'm not a fan of rock music but LOVE superheroes. Their analysis of such a big section of our culture today is so helpful for me, as a fan, a Christian, and a small group leader to high school guys. Highly recommend!!

Thoughtful & unique

I listen to many podcasts, and some are either too dull or there’s too much banter. But this podcast strikes a good balance of solid theological content & more lighthearted asides. A good mix!
