Lots of Christian educators are waking up to the concept of worldview and looking for ways to teach it to their students. Unfortunately, this has caused a common misconception to take root: Christians now assume that you can teach worldview like any other discipline — say, algebra or economics. But of course worldview is not merely “another subject” for the curriculum — it is the organizing principle behind all subjects. Until we understand this, we won’t really help students make the necessary paradigm shift. At least, that’s how your co-hosts Jeff and Bill see it, and so they do their level best to explain what they mean. Initially, though, Jeff raves about the book he thinks is the greatest American novel since To Kill a Mockingbird.

Not surprisingly, Jeff and Bill begin this podcast by talking about food — specifically, ice cream. From there, they read a very encouraging e-mail, describe a new church that actually uses a lottery system to determine who gets the money in the offering plate, and then settle in to discussing a listener’s good questions about devotional books. Not surprisingly, Jeff raves about Abide in Christ by Andrew Murray.
Spoiler alert! If you haven’t finished watching the television show “Lost” yet, welcome to planet Earth. Also, you won’t want to listen to this podcast until you see the last episode. After a lengthy discussion about donuts, hosts Bill Jack and Jeff Baldwin settle in to discuss the show that Jeff calls the best ever to air on network TV. In spite of such lavish praise, Jeff and Bill were thoroughly disgusted by the last episode, and are even more appalled when a listener writes in to suggest that it was somehow biblical. Talk about crazy talk!
