    The text of the books contained in The New American Bible is a completely new translation throughout. From the original and the oldest available texts of the sacred books, it aims to convey as directly as possible the thought and individual style of the inspired writers.

    Where does New American Bible rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of my favorites due to the clarity of sound, the pacing, and the sub-headings that are spoken as you move from one section to another.


    What about Buck Ford’s performance did you like?

    Terrific, clear sound that allows focus on what is being said. His voice doesn't get in the way like some narrators.

    What if God suddenly spoke to you? What if He told you to go and give specific messages to people from Him? Would you do it even if it cost you everything? What if it cost you your reputation, your business, your marriage, your family, and your friends? Join Eric Wheeler on his incredible true-life journey of what it really means to serve God and His people.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The author could have markedly shortened his personal background. It should have been no more than one chapter instead of the first five.


    What was most disappointing about Eric C. Wheeler’s story?

    It is not until Chapter 6 that the author starts talking about actual interactions with people as the title implies. So much of this book is more a discussion of himself and his thoughts and opinions as opposed to what he actually did.


    What three words best describe Josh Kilbourne’s voice?

    Not very rich


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from In His Service?

    Almost all of the first 5 chapters so he would get into his actual "service, as the title implies.


    Any additional comments?

    Very disappointed with this book. I was hoping for so much more.

  • How Civilizations Die (and Why Islam Is Dying Too)

    Past and present civilizations failed and fail for many reasons, but the number-one predictor of a civilization’s survival is its sense of religion—or lack thereof. So argues David Goldman in How Civilizations Die (and Why Islam Is Dying Too). The strength of a civilization’s religion affects its purpose, its fertility rate, and ultimately, its fate, says Goldman—who then argues that, contrary to popular belief, Islamic countries are in the last throes of death while Christian America is in a position to flourish.

    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    Very intersting concepts that I had never been exposed to. I always thought that the Islamic world was exploding in growth such that in a century or so they would take over the world due to sheer numbers. This book offers facts that destroy that belief.


    Any additional comments?

    The author appears to want his readers/listenters to be fully informed. But for the average person, this book could have been half as long and it still would have provided significant information.

    Joshua Jordan’s new weapons defense system will secure America against an array of new enemies, including a nuclear strike on New York City by North Korea. But global forces are mounting and corrupt government leaders will go to any extreme to prevent an impending economic catastrophe. As world events begin setting the stage for the “end of days” foretold in Revelation, Jordan must weigh the personal price he must pay to save the nation he loves.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Edge of Apocalypse to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the narration brings it to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Edge of Apocalypse?

    Actually, the beginning scenes grabbed my attention and kept it going.

  • Don't Know Much About the American Presidents

    For more than 20 years since his New York Times best-seller Don't Know Much About History first appeared, Davis has shown that Americans don't hate history, just the dull version dished out in school. Now Davis turns his attention to what is arguably the most important and most fascinating subject in American history: our presidents. From the heated debates over executive powers through the curious election of George Washington in 1789 and, for more than 200 years, up through the meteoric rise of Barack Obama, the presidency has been at the heart of American history.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Don't Know Much About the American Presidents to be better than the print version?

    This book will tell you everything you want to know about each President. Very very informative. Details details details!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not a book you can listen to in one sitting. I found it best to listen about one President at a time, take a break, and then move on to the next.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book provides a historical narrative with simultaneous commentary as you go along. It is unique and very informative. But it is very detailed, so prepare for a good listen. Not for those who want a quick overview.
