Welcome to a new episode of Three Chords and the Truth: The Apologetics Podcast! Three Chords and the Truth is a new podcast that brings together apologetics, theology, and the history of rock and roll. In the Three Chords segment of this week’s program, Garrick Bailey and I talk about why this topic matters to us; then, in the Truth segment, we learn about the doctrine of common grace as we consider Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey and the classic hit by Argent and KISS “God Gave Rock and Roll to You.”
