The Bookening keeps on discussing that Odyssey.

Show Notes

Here we are, continuing our discussing of The Odyssey. You probably knew that. Support us here!

This is an interesting episode because at a certain point it kinda sounds like we're beating up on the classical movement. But actually we're not doing that, exactly, so just bear with us here and don't get offended, because we obviously weren't talking about YOU. :)

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.
