    The Gnostic Gospels provides engaging listening for those seeking a broader perspective on the early development of Christianity. Author and noted scholar Elaine Pagels suggests that Christianity could have developed quite differently if Gnostic texts had become part of the Christian canon.

    Colin says: "A must-read"

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs)

    Story

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"

    Story
    Would you try another book from Laura Hillenbrand and/or Edward Herrmann?

    The story is gripping, a bit over the top, and then at the end you find out it was all an ad for the Billy Graham crusade. Unless you're into stories about christian epiphanies pass on it. I was deeply disappointed and felt conned.


    What was most disappointing about Laura Hillenbrand’s story?

    the end


    Have you listened to any of Edward Herrmann’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Unbroken?

    all the christian propaganda


    Any additional comments?

    I felt deceived
