Our heroes review Madeleine L'Engle's beloved (by some) fantasy novel A Wrinkle in Time. They'll do the movie next week.

Strangely enough, this is the second novel our heroes have discussed that was published in 1962 and features temptation, supernatural evil, emasculated fathers, coming of age, and love conquering all. The other one was Something Wicked This Way Comes and it rocked. Listen to find out how A Wrinkle in Time compared. Don't skip the opening, which provides an explanation for the episode that follows it. Here are things that happen in this episode.

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.
