In spite of knowing the Bible better than just about anyone, he still has not considered whether commercializing the truth of Scripture is something God condones or condemns.

The second part of this podcast comes from A Key to Uncle Tom's Cabin (Harriet Beecher Stowe, 1853) at the end of the second section.
