RR Podcast 5: Douglas Bond from Scotland

Today’s podcast is a follow-up to our last interview with Mr. Bond, RR Podcast 4: Douglas Bond on Fatherhood.  Last time we talked about his devotional books for young men and their fathers, Fathers and Sons.  But this time we focused more on his fiction–including his series on hymns of the church featuring Mr. Pipes, as well as his Crown and Covenant historical fiction.

Janie reviewed his Crown and Covenant series on Tuesday in her post Covenanters: Then and Now.  Today I talk to Mr. Bond from the bonny highlands of Scotland about the significance of Covenanters in church history, as well as why he thinks fiction is a helpful tool for passing on our faith to young people.

For more about Douglas Bond or to purchase his books, see his website www.bondbooks.net.  Also, some of you might be interested that his book on John Knox, another Scottish Reformer, just came out and can be purchased here.  And if you’d like to hear more of our podcasts, see our interview with Tim Challies on choosing kids’ books, Kevin Twit on The Jesus Storybook Bible, and Malechi Tech Guy on ereader safety.

Quick question of the day: Do you like hearing podcasts, or would you rather read interviews with our authors?  Your answer may shape how we continue our interviews!

    Thanks Karen (and belatedly, Jess). If I can ever get my technology to cooperate, we might be able to have a few more of them!

    I like the podcasts! We get to know the interviewee better, I think.

    I think podcasts are fun but I’m more likely to sit down and read an interview than I am to listen to a podcast. I can’t multi-task and listen while doing something else, and for some reason, I feel more justified when I’m reading than when I’m listening (call me weird). I wouldn’t mind you posting a podcast every now and then, though. :-)
