Having read this story in print several times, I was expecting to enjoy hearing and was delighted to discover that the narrator was Nadia May, not the person listed in the catalog. Her voice matches perfectly what I would imagine the author's voice would sound like. This is one of the finest devotional stories ever written. Hannah Hurnard's sequel, "Mountains of Spices", carries on the story after the heroine gets her "hinds' feet" and returns to help lead others out of the Valley. Maybe someday Audible will get rights to that too. Meanwhile, enjoy this heart-warming story of how little MuchAfraid learns to follow the Shepherd up to the Mountains of the Realm of Love.
Here is a book by one of my favorite authors who does his customary, excellent job presenting the facts in support of the Biblical account of creation. He does not fall into the trap of "young Earth" creationism, but acknowledges that God cared enough to create a world that was perfect for human life, even though it took Him billions of years to prepare stars with just the right materials to sustain carbon-based life forms (i.e. all the living creatures including us). There are books that treat this subject in more depth, but Lee Strobel's style of presentation makes it accessible even to the open-minded agnostic. I would highly recommend it.
Almost 40 years after first hearing that a former skeptic and iconoclast had become a follower of Christ, I ran across this book while searching for texts read by Frederick Davidson, one of my favorite narrators. This book is refreshing in its outlook, being a collection of essays, articles and interviews with Malcolm Muggeridge ("MM"). I was especially interested to learn about Simone Weil and other authors that he considered to be particularly adept at shedding light on the nature of God and His relationship with mankind. Although MM was not as orthodox in his theology as C.S. Lewis, he takes much of his inspiration from St. Augustine, St. Thomas and the Christian mystics. This is a book for a person who enjoys thinking about the meaning of existence and is unafraid of hearing what another soul found when he asked those questions.
