    The Prize recounts the panoramic history of oil, and the struggle for wealth and power that has always surrounded oil. This struggle has shaken the world economy, dictated the outcome of wars, and transformed the destiny of men and nations. The Prize is as much a history of the 20th-century as of the oil industry itself.

    This is one of my favorite books to read. This abriged version is a disaster. They cut out all the interesting history of the oil companies and only covered the politics of mid 20th century oil. What happened to the Colonel, Rockefeller, the 7 sisters? This was awful. If you only want the oil politics of 1950 to 1990 then this is fine. For me...yuk!

    Beginning with the story of Stephen from the book of Acts, considered the first Christian martyr, the drama builds to the passion of the early Church's persecution under the Roman Empire. The hardy and radical faith of those first believers spawned medieval missionary movements that spread the gospel across Europe and into England, Scotland, and Ireland. As the story continues, it places a significant emphasis on the sufferings of the early Protestants during the Reformation.

    Stephen says: "How much pain can you take?"
    "a primer on humility"
    Overall

    This is a quality recording of the Book of Martyrs. It is a hard story to listen to when considering the price that these folks paid to keep faith with Christ. I need to listen again and again
