We have the privilege of speaking with Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, the president of Zaytuna College – the first accredited Muslim liberal arts college in the Califonia. He was ranked by The Muslim 500 as the 25th most-influential Muslim worldwide. He serves as vice president of the UAE-based Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies and has a plethora of books he has authored and co-authored.
Pastor Bob Roberts Jr and Josh Tate get to speak to Hamza on how a life-altering near-death experience that made him turn to deep study of creation & religion, how he decided to convert to Islam coming from a family that wasn’t Muslim, and the captivating conversation with Bob and Hamza on Jesus.

- A Bright Spotby ash.ven from United States
I found this podcast to be a bright spot in a divisive climate. Thank you for modeling how to build friendships with and fight for the rights of others who are different than you. This can exist without our compromising your faith. As Imam Magid said, "it will affirm your faith."
- Fun conversations, not sermons/lectures!!!by nsgibbs3 from United States
Pastor Bob doesn’t just talk about loving people outside one’s one tribe, he lives it! This show demonstrates that we can stay committed to our faith while genuinely loving people who are different than us. This podcast isn’t a sermon, it’s a fun conversation between people from whom it’s a privilege to learn!
- Bold friendship buildingby Crhupp from United States
Pastor Bob Roberts Jr. and Imam Mohamed Magid are both passionate about their faith. What this podcast highlights are two men that are from vastly different backgrounds but have been willing to forge a deep friendship. They have found they also have a lot in common as they commit to look for the common good in bridge-building with each other’s respective faith communities in DFW and world-wide. They have fun too and you can’t help but wonder why we don’t all give ourselves the privilege of building new friendships with the “others” around us.
- Breaking down the wallsby Dtcounselor from United States
Bob Roberts shows us through his own personal walk how to love others regardless of their religious beliefs, without compromising your faith.
- Much Neededby d a n i e l from United States
Excited for this.
- NorthWood Church Elderby Rusty Mayeux from United States
I have had the special priviledge of knowing Bob the past 20+ years as he has been on this quest to live out what it means to have Bold Love! I have traveled with him to the Middle East as he works to build bridges. Meeting several of his friends from around the world from a variety of races and religions, I can attest to the effectiveness of how Bob respects and relates to others from very different backgrounds. He walks the talk as he sees every human being as made in the image of God. I look forward to hearing many more stories of Bold Love in action on this podcast.
- Evangelicals Learning to Love their Enemiesby Pastor JMP from United States
The life of Bob Roberts is a road map for following Jesus to love your neighbor. His journey as an evangelical Christian that spent most days with his own tribe, to a pastor from East Texas that spends his days loving his enemies, is amazing. This journey is one the American church must take in the 21st century if they want to impact culture. I love this podcast
- Living and Loving Like Jesusby Bowteach from United States
Bob Roberts not only talks the talk, he walks the walk. His journey to love and love others just like Jesus. He boldly loves others without condition. He speaks truth and shows others the love of Jesus. I was privileged to see this in action while in Vietnam and in the church he pastored. Bob leads by example and encourages others as he boldly steps out in faith. He is led by the Holy Spirit as he walks a journey of faith and love. He has a powerful message to share. Be sure to listen and you will gain a treasure.!

- NorthWood Church leaderby Jane Mayeux from United States
Just joined Bold Love Podcast where Sr. Pastor Bob Roberts will be sharing his world-wide, transforming journey of learning to boldly love others different from his faith community. Bob is passionate about loving others from different cultures, faiths and beliefs. A self-described evangelical, Bob has made lasting friendships across the world with religious leaders from the world's major religions, where he advocates for religious freedom, mutual respect and friendship. As one who has cringed at the world "evangelical" because of some of the abuses that have occurred and are attached to that label, Bob Roberts is redeeming the word "evangelical" as he inspires us to listen well to others in the Public Square, to agree where we find commonality, and when we disagree, to do so peacefully and respectfully without having to compromise our beliefs. If you want to learn how to build bridges of peace, join Bob Roberts' uncommon journey of Bold Love.
- Inspiring and Insightfulby Pastor Scott Venable from United States
The stories and the people you will hear from on these episodes will be life-altering. They will challenge existing paradigms of how we see people and break down the walls of tribalism. In such a polarized world that we live in, Bold Love has never been more timely. I’ve known Bob for over 10 years and have been inspired and challenged to love as boldly as he does. This is a can’t miss podcast!
- Can’t wait!by Micah Fries from United States
I don’t know of anyone who has taught me to love others - especially those I may have disagreements with- more than Bob Roberts. I can’t wait to dive in to this podcast and to learn more from Bob.
- The Love of God—Embodiedby Pastor Bez from United States
Bob Roberts taught me firsthand the importance of living the Christian faith. I’ve had the opportunity to watch Bob love all sorts of people that are often considered “enemies” of Christians. His unabashed, Jesus-focused love has led all sorts of people to realize just how big the love of God is and how it can change lives. I know you will love hearing these true stories.
