10 of my Favourite Christian Podcasts

Posted by Anne Witton on Monday, September 19, 2022 Under: Resources


I love podcasts and listen every day to a whole range of stuff including comedy, culture, science, history, economics and true crime, but I also enjoy Christian podcasts. Here are ten of my favourites which I hope will encourage and inspire you. In no particular order:

  1. In The Lord I Take Refuge: Daily Devotions Through the Psalms with Dane Ortlund
    Topic: Devotional
    Frequency: 152 episodes (ended)
    Run time: 4 mins
    I’ve recently read the corresponding book and found it heart-warming and soul-inspiring. For those who prefer audio, these devotions are superb.

  2. The Ten Minute Bible Hour Podcast
    Topic: Bible
    Frequency: Daily
    Run time: 10 mins
    Matt Whitman guides listeners though books of the Bible in bite-sized chunks each day. It’s a great way to systematically and regularly explore Scripture.

  3. Kingdom Roots with Scot McKnight
    Topic: New Testament theology and church life
    Frequency: Fortnightly
    Run time: 35 – 40 mins
    New Testament scholar and theologian Scot McKnight explores the context of the New Testament teaching and helps to apply that teaching today.

  4. The Speak Life Podcast
    Topic: Apologetics, evangelism and culture
    Frequency: Weekly
    Run time: 40 – 60 mins
    The team and special guests discuss a whole range of topics from Christian camps, sermon length and Pentecost to the sexual revolution, abortion and Ed Sheeran. It’s all done in a very engaging and winsome way.

  5. BibleProject
    Topic: Bible conversations
    Frequency: Weekly
    Run time: Approx an hour
    From the makers of the excellent Bible Project videos, this podcast comprises dialogue between hosts Tim and Jon on a whole range of biblical topics from justice, literary genres and biblical characters to book explorations and word studies.

  6. Ask NT Wright Anything
    Topic: Interview about theology and pastoral issues
    Frequency: Weekly
    Run time: 20 – 30 mins
    New Testament theologian, prolific author and Bible commentator Tom Wright answers listener questions on topics ranging from atonement and mission to slavery and Bible infallibility.

  7. The Crossway Podcast
    Topic: Interviews on the Bible, theology, church history and Christian life
    Frequency: Weekly
    Run time: Varied but usually 30 – 40 mins
    These fascinating interviews with Crossway authors cover a whole range of topics including Job’s suffering, our culture’s obsession with identity, how to study the Bible, porn, and racial reconciliation. Authors include Sam Allberry, Rebecca Mclaughlin, Tim Chester, Kevin DeYoung and Kristyn Getty. There are even some full audiobooks to enjoy.

  8. Gentle and Lowly: A 14-Day Devotional With Dane Ortlund
    Topic: Devotional
    Frequency: 15 episodes (ended)
    Run time: 5 mins
    I love this book and the accompanying devotional audio is just as encouraging to anxious and discouraged Christians. Each day includes a portion of Scripture and a meditation on a different aspect of the heart of Christ.

  9. PEP Talk
    Topic: Evangelism
    Frequency: Fortnightly
    Run time: 25 mins
    The Persuasive Evangelism Podcast from Solas introduces you to expert guests with inspiration, resources and ideas for sharing your faith. There are some excellent creative ideas and stories of mission. And they’ve even had me on talking about Iranian home-cooking, discussing aliens and giving out donuts in your front garden!

  10. The Good Book Company Podcast
    Topic: Interviews with authors about church, culture and the Christian life
    Frequency: Weekly
    Run time: 60 mins
    This is another worthwhile interview show including authors such as John Lennox, Rachel Jones, Rico Tice and Amy Orr-Ewing. Topics are fascinatingly varied, for example suffering, science, sex, emotions, prayer, miscarriage, leadership, hospitality, and even periods!
