We don’t talk about Christian books a whole lot, which is funny since we all work in Christian publishing. But since it’s “summer reading list” season from ministry leaders and websites, we decided to discuss the books would we recommend Christians read to read instead of being known for having read them? Listen in as we discuss:
- What movies pastors constantly reference in sermons?
- Does Humble Calvinism qualify as a summer/vacation read?
- And why do we use the phrase “laundry list”?
- Does Aaron recommend too many boring books in this category?
- Who would we wish would sponsor the podcast?
- Which Christian author wrote the worst summer vacation read?
And, of course, leave a creative and entertaining 5-star review on Apple Podcasts—one that we can’t help but read on the air! And if you have a question for us to answer on a future episode of the show, call our hotline at 615-538-7473 and leave us a message.
Bonus content: The origin of the phrase “laundry list”.
