Episode 031: Understanding the Word of God with Skip Heitzig

Skip Heitzig

The bible is filled with incredible stories and life-changing truth, but often we struggle as believers to understand how it affects our lives today. How radically would our lives change if we had a firmer grasp on all of the wisdom God offers us? This week’s guest on the iDisciple Podcast is setting out to do just that: help believers and non-believers alike dive deeper into the word of God.

On this episode, David is joined by pastor and speaker Skip Heitzig. Skip ministers to over 15,000 people as senior pastor of Calvary Albuquerque, and thousands more across the globe with his multimedia ministry. In addition to that, Skip is the prolific author of several books, including Defying Normal, The Bible From 30,000 Feet, and a series of books about how to better understand the bible.

Skip is joining us today to share his personal faith story, and to take us deeper into his latest book, You Can Understand the Book of Genesis. The conversation is a powerful reminder of how much the word of God can change our lives, if we take the time to understand it.

We pray that David and Skip’s discussion inspires you to open up your bible and seek out the truth that the Lord has for you, and helps you see the scriptures in an entirely different light!
