    Blaine Eldredge: The Paradise King

    Blaine Eldredge, author, teacher, and builder of platforms to help the church thrive in late modernity (oh yes, and son of John and Stasi Eldredge of Wild at Heart Ministries, in case you were wondering) joins us on the Isle to talk about... well, everything. That is, the spectacular future of everything, as described in his new book "The Paradise King".

    If that wasn't enough, there's even a poetry slam, Stupid Game style. We won't give it away, as it must be heard to be believed but we will say this much.
    Emily Dickinson.
    Gilligan's Island.

    It does not disappoint.
