ABOUT THE HOST

THE REAL DEAL
Dewey Bertolini takes a contemporary look at The Real Deal: What the Bible really says about life, liberty and the pursuit of Godliness. Every other week, Dewey examines events from the news, pop culture and his own life through a lens that looks deep into our intentions and our actions, then compares them to true Biblical principles.

THE PODCAST
It’s difficult to evaluate someone’s faith. Since each individual expresses themselves, well… individually, it is up to each of us – as individuals – to take a good, hard look at our hearts. The Bible says that our love and the “fruit that we bear” will help determine the level or strength of our faith. In this podcast, Dewey aims to help you answer the question, “Is your faith authentic or counterfeit?” In other words, when you run the course of life and react to the world around you, where are your priorities and how what is your decision making process… and how do they compare to what the Bible instructs us?

PODCASTER BIO

The Real Deal 16: Ask Me Anything

“Ask me anything you want about my personal, private life. You can dig as deeply as you want to dig. You can probe as thoroughly as you want to probe. No question is out of bounds. So fire away.” With those words reverberating throughout the chapel, my role for the week or weekend as a […]

The Real Deal 15: The Wonder of It All

Guess you’re never too young to teach an old dog a new trick. In this case, “young” refers to my fifteen-month-old granddaughter, Nora; “old dog” refers to yours truly.

The Real Deal 14: You Are One Dynamic Personality

Independence Day is the one day of the year when I’m legally allowed to blow things up.  A little childish, maybe, but setting off fireworks excites me like few other things in this world. But, if dynamic power unleashed in a controlled explosion is what excites you – all you need to do is look […]

The Real Deal 12: Forgiven!!

The Real Deal 8: To Know the Heart of God

For many of us, when we think of Jesus Christ, we go back to the flannel-graph image of a happy-go-lucky Jesus beaming with blazing optimism.  However, when we take a closer look at the Gospels and the prophecies of the Old Testament, we see a different personal portrait – a deeper, sorrowful, suffering savior.  However, […]
