Summary

Apologies, we were going to do our 2018 booklist this week, but for boring behind-the-scenes reasons it ended up making more sense to do Dubliners first. However, if you want to get reading for 2018, we're doing CS Lewis's Til We Have Faces in January and Mansfield Park by Jane Austen in February.

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.
