Jonathan and I enjoyed making An Oral History of the Church so much, and we saw a significant gap in available podcasts, so we decided to launch a second one. It’s called “Saints Gone Before,” and is available on its own page (click here) or via iTunes, Google Play, Player FM, Blubrry, Podbean, and any other podcast feed that pulls from any of those sources (like Podcast Addict).
Saints Gone Before is a weekly audiobook-style podcast in 10-20 minute episodes where we read Christian texts from across the history of the church. Some readings will be sermons, others will be letters, or hymns, or prayers, or books. It’s all the primary sources, without any of the commentary. New episodes debut every Monday morning.
Bibliographic data is also included in case you’re interested in reading the text yourself. Some folks like to simply read it for themselves; others enjoy following along as the speaker reads it out loud.
If you would like us to feature a particular text on the podcast, you can leave a comment on this post, hit us up on our Facebook page, or e-mail us at churchhistorypodcast (at) gmail (dot) com! We might just include it in our schedule.
