MALE SPEAKER: Welcome to the broadcast of SharperIron. This broadcast features news and ideas designed to convey a Christian worldview.
JASON: I get the idea, of listening to you preach, that you read books nonstop. Is that true?
MARK: Well, my family would probably say that.
JASON: I guess, it’s, to me the, you know, I’ve heard you preach several times, and you reference a Puritan, maybe a personal illustration from their life. Is that like an instant recall thing with you? Or is that…
MARK: Boy, don’t I wish.
JASON: Or do you have an intricate filing system, or does that just happen to be the book that you’re reading as you’re preparing that sermon?
MARK: Yes, yes that’s, that’s a good question. Jason I, you know, I think, I think this would be true of a lot of men, that they just are voracious readers. Not true of everybody, but it’s true of a lot of fellows.
