Being a lover of books myself, I was drawn to this podcast after hearing of it through Ligonier Ministries. Steve Nichols does a great job through his interviews introducing us to great men of God who share their wisdom concerning books that have been meaningful to them. This helps me get ideas...Read full review »

I’m so thankful that I found this podcast, thanks to Michelle Lesley. The recommendations of books will keep me busy for a long time!

One of the best things that my mentors and heroes have done for me is to recommend quality books over and over for me to read, especially books that helped shape them into the people I admire and respect. Dr Nichols has taken that same idea, but brought us into the studies of some of the most...Read full review »

Wow, Dr. J-Mac delivers as usual. I wish the season lasted longer, more episodes would be great. A treasure of a podcast.

Stephen Nichols’ Five Minutes in Church History is outstanding. And Open Book is equal with that treasure. What better way to spend ten minutes than listening to brilliant theologians discuss the impact books have had on their lives and ministry.

I am greatly encouraged at listening to these men share their search for truth and the books that helped them solve life’s tough questions. It also wonderfully highlights how God has preserved the learning of godly men through history to help shape the godly men and women of today. And it just...Read full review »

Open book has been very inspirational to my spiritual life. To hear how God has used the writings of followers of Christ to encourage and spur on the faith of the current generation!

Academics can be fun and curious, yet not always touching the heart. Steve helps that not happen. Eager for more.

Like this podcast, hope it starts back up again!

I just binged the entire first season and I am hooked! I also added quite a few “need to read”s to my list! I am very much looking forward to subsequent seasons. Would love to hear from Sinclair Ferguson, Ian Hamilton, and Alistair Begg (coincidentally all Scottish) as well as Robert Godfrey,...Read full review »

My husband received Open Door, season 1 as an mp3 disk in the mail today. He gave it to me, my literary eyes lit up when I saw the books being covered, so I just listened to the first message (about 10 minutes long). It was so interesting, I immediately subscribed on iTunes, and will be eagerly...Read full review »

What could be better than R.C.’s description of his life and books he owns? This series was both heartwarming and educational. What a life he led!!! And the relationship Dr Nichols had with R. C. was obviously one of deep respect and love. Thank you, Dr. Nichols!!! Looking forward to the...Read full review »

Original concept, captivating, and makes me want to read all these books.
Spherofan13 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/18/18
I love these podcasts! Stephen Nichols does a great job with the interviews and giving an overview of Dr. Sproul’s favorite books. With his passing, and so many people missing him, this is a great way to keep his memory alive.
KristenHQ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/18/18
I love how this quick 10-minute podcast exposes me to so much great literature. Hearing intelligent, godly men share how these books have shaped their thinking and stimulated them to love God more is inspiring. I highly recommend this podcast.

Great stories and now I want to buy these books! Thank you for the podcast and the time you took to do these interviews. They’re great insight into the minds of great men of God.

RC passed away a little over 4 months ago as i write this review. i’ve always wished him to be a part of this dialog type format.

Thanks so much for sharing with us more of Dr. Sproul. Your bio about in him the recent special edition of Tabletank. God bless you!

This podcast is not only for Christians. Open book is about learning how to examine the books that you are reading, will it be more influential to you or not? This is where you will learn more about the writers in 16th to 19th century.

Uitsekende Theologische verlichting op Christelijke geschiedenis. What a lovely way to remember a cherished scholar like RC, .....Steven. I’m sure he must be smiling from heaven!

I have thoroughly enjoyed the first three episodes of this podcast. I love hearing how books have shaped Dr. Sproul and developed his own theology. This podcast offers a great blend of theology, church history, and personal notes from the life of Dr. Sproul.

Listening to Dr Sproul, I’m always grateful for new words from him, especially after his passing. Also though, I have enjoyed watching Dr Sproul’s nurturing of Stephen Nichols in Ligonier. Stephen, you are a well learned man, graced by God, and I enjoy the teaching you bring to Ligonier, as well...Read full review »

It’s true that books help to formulate who we are. And it is so great to hear the stories of great men and women of faith and their encounters with the books that helped to form. Dr. Nichols is a great interviewer, and he brings us a treasure trove in this podcast!
