    In 2010, using a specialized robotic camera, authors Tabor and Jacobovici, working with archaeologists, geologists, and forensic anthropologists, explored a previously unexcavated tomb in Jerusalem from around the time of Jesus. They made a remarkable discovery. The tomb contained several ossuaries, or bone boxes, two of which were carved with an iconic image and a Greek inscription. Taken together, the image and the inscription constitute the earliest archaeological evidence of faith in Jesus’ resurrection.

    Story

    With all the effective equipment and expertise there is too much speculation.
    These folks congratulate themselves on the find of the century, but they are still
    speculating on a string of evidence. Couldn't finish it.

    What is a God chaser? A God chaser is an individual whose hunger exceeds his reach. A God chaser is a person whose passion for God's presence presses him to chase the impossible in hopes that the uncatchable might catch him. Add your name to the list...become a God chaser. Who knows? You might be one whom He catches.

    Good book. The narrator did not know how to pronounce the words. I was very distracted by his many mistakes. How can one leave the H out of humble. Mount Sigh nay i? I am no
    phonetics ace, but I am bothered by mispronounciations. I will have this book on my shelf though. Powerful, informative and inspired.

    Already a BBC documentary miniseries and excerpted in the Guardian, We Bought a Zoo is a profoundly moving portrait of an unforgettable family living in the most extraordinary circumstances. This touching memoir is set to be a major motion picture starring Scarlett Johansson and Matt Damon, in theaters December 23, 2011.

    Cute story, I would have prefered more about the relationships and less banking,
    financial and legal data. The animal stories were great and the people were inspirational.
    Quite an impressive undertaking. Interesting reading.

    On the 78th floor of the World Trade Center’s north tower, no alarms sounded, and no one knew what had just happened at 8:46 a.m. that morning, September 11, 2001. Blind since birth, Michael couldn’t see a thing, but he could hear the sounds of shattering glass, falling debris, and terrified people flooding around him and his guide dog, Roselle. However, Roselle sat calmly beside him. In that moment, Michael chose to trust Roselle’s judgment and not to panic. They were a team....

    The body of an elderly woman is found dismembered in a Virginia landfill. Scarpetta initially believes the clues mirror that of a serial killer she's tracked before. But upon further investigation, she discovers puzzling pox-like erruptions on the woman's body that, perhaps, point in another direction.

    Story

    The story was repetitive enough, but the narration was dreadfully slow. So much so that the
    sentences and pauses muddled the emphasis. Held my interest not at all.

    Story

    Golly, this book and reader were as mundane and trite as a teenager journaling a nightmare.
    The music was hokey and manipulative and every paragraph was a chapter.
    I cringed every time the music started and there was a pause. So unbelievable and unlistenable.
    I never critique, but this one was sooo bad.
