For the first time ever, Three Chords and the Truth: The Apologetics Podcast reveals the future! It's the last episode of season 2, and it's quite possible that your mind won't be able to handle everything that takes place in this thrilling season finale. Your intrepid cohosts turn out to be not only pastors and podcasters but also predictors and prognosticators. Before the episode comes to an end, their prophetic prognostications predict
- a book that won't be published until September,
- a new name for the podcast that's not happening until season 3, and
- a giveaway that won't begin until this episode has already been released.
In the first half, New Testament scholar extraordinaire Jarvis Williams joins the podcast to talk about the book that won't be published until September. The title of his book is Redemptive Kingdom Diversity: A Biblical Theology of the People of God, and it's a book that every listener should plan to pre-order. Along the way, Jarvis and Timothy discuss Pearl Jam, Luther Vandross, and how multiethnic diversity in the church provides an apologetic for the gospel.
In the second half, Garrick returns from a trip to Texas and prognosticates a name change for the podcast as well as unveiling the duo's plans for attaining new levels of insanity in season 3. Garrick also tells us about his new job and reveals the classic song from 1963 that best exemplified 2020. Before the episode ends, your intrepid cohosts divulge almost all of their plans for season 3 and, most exciting of all, they tell you how to win a mystery gift in the biggest giveaway ever attempted on this podcast. Also, why hasn't anyone ever named their band "Mystery Gift"?
