Wingin’ It 64.1: Church History (Part 1) – The Fall of Jerusalem

6/28/2018
More
This Wingin' It is the first is a series that Wade and Mike plan to record on Church History. Much like they did with the Wingin' It series on the Divine Service, the hope is that by taking a big topic in smaller parts they'll be able to get into a bit more detail than they would be able to do in a single episode. That said, these are still Wingin' It episodes, so they are far from scripted, (you've been forewarned). They will be using Mark A. Noll's book Turning Points: Decisive Moments in...
