Welcome to The Kindlings Muse @ Earl Palmer Ministries. This event is taped for podcast in front of a live audience at the Burke Museum Caf on the campus of the university of Washington. Each month we feature the Reverend Earl Palmer selecting and then discussing a book thinking Christians ought to read. In this show host Dick Staub and Earl Palmer discuss Three Ways to Understand the World as explored in Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich. With the publication of this book, in 1962, during the brief Kruschev thaw, Solzhenitsyn became an international sensation. The story is set in a Soviet labor camp in the 1950s, and describes a single day of an ordinary prisoner.
