Yes, you read that right. Although your hosts Bill Jack and Jeff Baldwin love to argue about anything and everything, even Bill had to admit that Jeff was right about author Leif Enger. In this episode of “What We’re Reading Now,” Bill waxes eloquent about both of Enger’s novels, and Jeff tries not to say “I told you so.” Also, Jeff talks about a great book about the puritans by Leland Ryken and a crazy book about a tomcat by the author of the original Nutcracker. Before the show ends, your hosts gang up on the “younger generation” and their failure to appreciate the great outdoors.

If you’ve listened to Radio Worldview for a few years, you know that Jeff and Bill can talk at length about almost anything — and you may have laughed about how many shows they podcast about applying the Christian worldview to the National Parks. Well, brace yourself: this is yet another show (triggered by some listener mail) about public vs. private land ownership. But that’s not all! This episode also features the popular segment “Roadkill Cafe,” as well as ranting and raving about the new liberal crusade to ban fires in (of all places!) your home fireplace. How puritanical can radical environmentalists get?
It’s understandable that the world makes idols. If you don’t know the true God, then you are bound to bend your knee to something unworthy. But aren’t a lot of Christians also guilty of idolatry when they treat select Christian leaders as celebrities? Host Jeff Baldwin certainly thinks so, but co-host Bill Jack is not so sure. This bare-knuckle discussion grows naturally out of a conversation about a listener’s response to the Sarah Palin podcasts. This listener hasn’t made an idol of Palin, but it seems like some Christians have — at least if you believe Jeff.
