Long-time listeners know that co-host Bill Jack has always wanted to call our podcast “That’s Crazy Talk.” Never has that title been more appropriate than right now, when Bill and Jeff finish discussing all the crazy talk in Love Wins by Rob Bell. How bad is it? Jeff is so angry that they actually dive right into the topic, with nary a mention of donuts or Colorado or what we’re reading now. Once Bill and Jeff are done with Bell, they take the time to answer a couple of quick questions from listeners. The discussion ranges from Bible apps for the iPod to Thomas Hobbes.

We wanted to entitle this episode “Who Will Take Care of Your Pets After the Rapture?” since this show begins with hosts Bill and Jeff discussing an actual service offered by atheists who promise to care for Christians’ pets after the rapture, and then leads into a discussion of Pastor Rob Bell’s book Love Wins. Since Bell is basically a universalist who expects everybody to ultimately make it into heaven, maybe Christians can’t even count on atheists to take care of their pets. And if the sarcasm in this synopsis is lost on you, just tune in to this episode, sit back, relax, and listen to Bill and Jeff bemoan Bell’s shoddy pseudo-intellectualism.
Yes, your hosts from Radio Worldview are still ranting and raving about the Kindle. Is Jeff right to worry that e-books signal the demise of actual books and the loss of valuable but unpopular literature? Is Bill right to call Jeff an elitist? Is it true that libraries will still exist 75 years from now? Are small town libraries fundamentally different from big-city libraries? And why does all this matter for Christians? Jeff and Bill disagree, but this discussion should make you think.
