The Briefing

The Briefing

“I’m Albert Mohler, and this is The Briefing, a daily analysis of news and events from a Christian worldview.” That’s how Al Mohler starts off every episode of his daily podcast, The Briefing. It seems like a simple enough idea, but it’s something that has been largely missing in the Christian world: a trustworthy resource that helps you figure out how to think about the leading news headlines. Mohler provides what he calls a “worldview analysis” of those headlines with masterful delivery and helpful commentary for Christians trying to sort through current events.

Mohler explains, “You know, around the world some of the most crucial leaders receive, first thing every morning, a briefing. The President of the United States receives a national security briefing. Those on Wall Street receive a financial and investment briefing. I think it’s high time Christians have a briefing that is available and accessible to you on a daily basis, Monday through Friday. We’re going to be looking at the headlines, looking at the cultural conversation. We’re going to be listening to what the world is saying, and . . . we’re going to have a very quick briefing for you on how Christians should think intelligently, faithfully, biblically about these things.”

If anyone is qualified to give a briefing of this kind, it’s Mohler. He currently serves as president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and has been referred to as the “reigning intellectual of the evangelical movement in the U.S.” by He is the author of multiple books including We Cannot Be SilentThe Conviction to Lead, and Words From the Fire.

The Editor’s Take: Some days I feel like I barely have time to read the news, let alone analyze it! Al Mohler’s podcast has been a great help for learning how to think about issues deeply and thoroughly. When I hear a big event in the news, I listen to what Mohler has to say during my commute because I know it will be talked about at work. The Briefing makes me feel prepared and able discuss the issues intelligently.
