Vacation Bible School (VBS) is one of the institutions in American Christianity. What is it and why has it become such a central part of suburban Christianity? Todd and Scott talk about music, pitfalls of entertainment evangelism, the joy of teaching children, and give VBS a thumbs up, but with a little caution.
