Show Notes

The Little House stories ...

Narnia ...


What do these three things have to do with each other?

Well, they are clearly all series of books. That's for sure.

Also, they are all books that may or may not appear on Nathan, Jake, or Brandon's respective lists of their Top Five Favorite Books from Childhood.

That's right, our heroes are taking us on an autobiographical journey through their own pasts, revealing the stories and books that molded them into the upstanding gentlemen the are today.

You'll find out which story horrified Young Nathan so badly that he spent the next many years of his life trying to recreate the experience. You'll meet young Jake the Jock (Undercover Nerd-in-Training).  And you'll be introduced to Young Brandon, a nerd who was ... not so undercover.

Whether you were a public school kid who got to order Boxcar Children Books from the Scholastic catalog, or a home-schooled dork who had to stick with the Cooper Kids or Trailblazers, this episode is sure to evoke some warm memories, and maybe suggest a few books to read with your own children. 

And maybe a few to avoid. 

What is The Bookening?

3 guys—a pastor, a scholar, and their gleeful provocateur—discuss the great books. We take God and literature seriously—but the second one not overly so.
