The desiringGod team offers the APJ podcast in a number of formats including all your favorite podcast platforms, both iPhone and Android apps, and on their website with full transcripts. Each has benefits over the others: the podcast is easy to access through a platform you already use, the app includes a search function to find the answers you are looking for, and the online version gives you the option to read the answers instead of listening. Either way, Ask Pastor John is a resource you should take advantage of. And if you don’t find the answer you are looking for, you can email your own questions to AskPastorJohn@desiringGod.org.
