An emergency poetry series.

Show Notes

Don't worry, _Emma _is still coming. (!!!) It'll be up in the next few weeks, as soon as our heroes get through this emergency poetry series. 

Why an emergency poetry series? Well, for one thing, these episodes do take a lot of work to produce, and our heroes have lives and full-time jobs and blah blah blah. Our heroes needed a little extra time to get into the grove of a novel-a-month again. Especially after the awesome but behemoth _Anna Karenina. _

Moreover, our heroes love poetry, and they wanted to make a case to you, the listener, that you should read more poetry. Poetry rocks. It was good enough for King David after all. And the Living God chose to include more than 150 poems in His book of books.

So poetry is not just for pretentious effeminate losers. In fact, it's not for pretentious effeminate losers at all. They may try to ruin it from time to time, but they can't. Because poetry rocks. If you think you don't like poetry, it's because you've either read the wrong poetry, or your heart is two-sizes two small. Either way, it's time to man up and read some poetry. Or at least listen to Nathan, Brandon, and Jake do so for the next few weeks.

Coming super soon, we swear, _Emma _by the Great Jane Austen 

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.
