    For the past two years, Craig Groeschel and his church have hosted a national multi-church campaign called One Prayer, a month-long concerted focus on unifying the many different, diverse churches participating by praying together and serving their local communities.

    Overall

    The material is good stuff from good thinkers & writers. However, the narration is poor, not appropriate for the particular contributors. It just kills the whole experience.

    What!? You're not perfect? That's all right, God loves you anyway. He even loves the author of this book, and he's really a mess. There is a spirituality for people who often don't feel very spiritual and it will bring you closer to God. Find it in this book.

    How bad do we all miss Mike?

    There is no way to listen to this and not get emotional. What a great book.

  • Misquoting Jesus

    When world-class biblical scholar Bart Ehrman first began to study the texts of the Bible in their original languages he was startled to discover the multitude of mistakes and intentional alterations that had been made by earlier translators. In Misquoting Jesus, Ehrman tells the story behind the mistakes and changes that ancient scribes made to the New Testament and shows the great impact they had upon the Bible we use today.

    Michael says: "Leaves you wondering"
    "What a hack."
    Overall

    This is some of the poorest scholarship I believe I've seen since Joel Osteen. About half of his claims are simple miscontext and the other could be divided among taking an antagonistic view of all things scripture & the "late date" hermenutic.

    Save your money. This guy is a hack.

  • Love Wins: A Book About Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived

    Millions of Christians have struggled with how to reconcile God's love and God's judgment: Has God created billions of people over thousands of years only to select a few to go to heaven and everyone else to suffer forever in hell? Is this acceptable to God? How is this "good news"? Author, pastor, and innovative teacher Rob Bell presents a deeply biblical vision for rediscovering a richer, grander, truer, and more spiritually satisfying way of understanding heaven, hell, God, Jesus, salvation, and repentance.

    Paula says: "Easy reading, straight forward, life changing"
    "Intelligence..."
    Overall

    It has been said that true inteligence is being able to understand a position without accepting it. In that spirit I've read this book several times and listened to it several more.
    Verdict: I am deeply disapointed that such a great writer and thinker has gone off in this direction. It's compelling and gets plenty of conversations going, but at the end of the day it's just herecy in it's pure form. There is no continuity in the idea that "God gets what God wants" in the end! Biblically, this proposition is contradicted in Revelation 20:11as Satan and his demons are cast into outer darkness in judgment, along with death and Hades.

    Great author.
    Great presentation.
    Very well read and written.
    Sadly, it is heretical doctrine that will lead many to confusion and ultimate ruin. That's a sad thing.
