    In Reasons to Believe, Scott Hahn, a convert to Catholicism, explains the "how and why" of the Catholic faith - drawing from Scripture, his own struggles, and those of other converts, as well as from everyday life and even natural science. Hahn shows that reason and revelation, as well as nature and the supernatural, are not opposed to one another; rather, they offer complementary evidence that God exists. He is someone, and He has a personality, a personal style, that is discernable and knowable.

    Where does Reasons to Believe rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really enjoyed this and profited from Scott Hahn's accessible and easy going style. Don't shy away if you are not Catholic--about 2/3's is not Catholic-specific and would be an excellent review of common sense Christianity for just about anyone. Well worth my time!

  • The Children of Hurin

    There are tales of Middle-earth from times long before The Lord of the Rings. The story told in this book is set in the great country that lay beyond the Grey Havens in the West: lands where Treebeard once walked, but which were drowned in the great cataclysm that ended the First Age of the World.

    Catherine says: "Powerful and Disturbing"

    What did you love best about The Children of Hurin?

    This is a tale that spins off from the Silmarillion - from the ages before LOTR. If you like that, you'll like this. It is a tragic tale, finished off in the editing by his son and literary executor, Christopher, that contains the full measure of Tolkien's mastery of the mythical genre. If you like Tolkien this would be required reading.


    What about Christopher Lee’s performance did you like?

    Christopher Lee's performance is powerful and moving. His reading of Tolkein's many tough-to-pronounce names is carefully done and a pleasure to listen to. I was really pleased by the narration.
