Podcasts for the Christian

Another wonderful bit of technology to aid the Pilgrim is the podcast.  In recent years, I have added Christian podcasts to my "armory" in building me up spiritually.  There are oodles of them available for free from on iTunes, and I have found them to be a terrific way to start your day.

I developed this routine, because I found that in the mornings as I prepared for my day, I would start churning and ruminating over things that were bugging me.  I have found that listening to an uplifting and enriching podcast instead helped keep me in a better frame of mind and focusing my mental energy and spirit on higher things. 
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.  (Phillipians 4:8)
Here are some favorites that I thoroughly enjoy and highly recommend:

Ravi Zacharias: 
Let My People Think

"Let My People Think" with Ravi Zacharias is a 30-minute radio program that powerfully mixes biblical teaching and Christian apologetics. The program seeks to explore issues such as life's meaning, the credibility of the Christian message and the Bible, the weakness of modern intellectual movements and the uniqueness of Jesus Christ.

Ravi Zacharias has spoken in over fifty countries and in numerous universities worldwide, notably Harvard and Princeton. He was born in India in 1946 and immigrated to Canada twenty years later. While pursuing a career in business management, his interest in theology grew. Ravi received his Master of Divinity from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He has also been honored by the conferring of a Doctor of Divinity degree from Houghton College, a Doctor of Laws degree from Asbury College, and a Doctor of Divinity degree from Tyndale College and Seminary, Toronto. Ravi has written several books, including Cries of the Heart and Jesus Among Other Gods. He and his family reside in Atlanta, Georgia.  (Click here to go directly to RZIM's website.)

R.C. Sproul's Renewing Your Mind (Ligonier Ministries)
Since 1994, Renewing Your Mind with Dr. R.C. Sproul has provided accessible, in-depth Bible teaching to millions around the world.  As the principal outreach of Ligonier Ministries, this radio broadcast has instructed listeners in the life-changing truths of historic Christianity and has kept the church community informed about pertinent issues facing believers today.

Windsor Crossing Community Church
Pastor Greg Holder is a phenomenal preacher.  He's one of those rare individuals where he can talk for 45 minutes and you want more!  Informative, thought-provoking, educational, and humorous, Holder's sermons are directed not just at the "churched" but also to the "unchurched"-- an approach so needed in our post-modern society.  (Click here to go to
Windsor Crossing Community Church.)  You can also download videocasts.

All available for FREE on iTunes.  You will find that the above podcasts are from differing denominations; however, there is no strong dominance of any particular group other than Protestant and orthodox.
