This 5-ish minute daily podcast is the only daily program I've ever gotten sucked into. Dan Van Voorhis is just as entertaining as informative, and he doesn't get stuck dawdling in one Christian camp for "on this day in Christian history".

Description

The Christian History Almanac is a daily 5-minute podcast that highlights those stories- sometimes well known, other times less so- that have shaped the history of the church. Hosted by historian and author Dr. Daniel van Voorhis, each daily podcast concludes with a piece of prose or poetry and the reminder that because of the Good News, everything is going to be ok.
