Interview: Why Christians Should Read the Great Books

A recent post here resulted in an invitation to appear on the Research on Religion podcast. Host Tony Gill was intrigued by my applying lessons from Plato to dining at Applebee’s in the 21st century.

We recorded the interview last Wednesday, and it was published yesterday on the Research on Religion site.

The interview was a lot of fun to do. Looking back on it, my only regret is that I neglected to go into the need for Great Books education in a democratic society where ordinary citizens are expected to play a role in public life. That omission apart, I think the interview went very well, and I hope you enjoy it.
