    One contemporary scholar and authority on Spurgeon says of this work: "Next to Mr. Spurgeon's great literary work, The Treasury of David, we consider (these) Lectures to My Students his greatest single contribution to the Christian world. There is more practical wisdom, common sense and sage advice packed within these pages than with any other book of similar size, or content." This complete and unabridged edition of Spurgeon's great work will make it possible for today's generation to appreciate Spurgeon's combination of discerning wit and refreshingly practical advice.

    I have enjoyed listening to this book many times since I bought it. I find it very enjoyable. C.H. Spurgeon was not a formally educated man but was a lifelong student of the Christian faith once he was converted at age 19. He became a preacher who, before microphones could be heard by a crowd of 23,000 people. He actually asked his faithful to stay at home every fourth Sunday so the "unbelievers" would have a chance to hear him. I have read or studied many of the books put out this generation about this pastor that died 120 years ago.
    This and many other books have been written in contemporary English as many of the words that were used in Spurgeons day and age are antiquated and not easy to understand. I highly recommend this if you like to listen to the Classic Christian Pastors such as Wesley, Jonathan Edwards, and George Whitfield.

    Walter Wangerin, Jr. makes the Bible come alive in detail with The Book of God. Wangerin reveals the humanity and eternal messages behind the text. The Book of God is a sweeping history that covers thousands of years and hundreds of lives, in a myriad of foreign yet familiar cultures. The award-winning Wangerin has produced his magnum opus, a timeless masterpiece that rekindles the imagination and nurtures the spirit.

    Story

    I was very happy with the novel. I thought the stories followed very closely to the Word of God.
    It would be a good introduction for someone who had never completely read the Bible especially the old testament to get an overview of the major stories of the Bible. It is not a substitute for the Bible but an entertaining overview of the Biblical stories.

  • Why Jesus?: Rediscovering His Truth in an Age of Mass-Marketed Spirituality

    The author believes that over the past forty years movements like New Age spirituality and society's obsession with human potential have combined like a "perfect storm" to redefine for popular culture what has been for centuries the classic biblical definition of the person, work, and teaching of Jesus Christ. Major new age and human potential tenets will be discussed like: the belief that we are all gods and have to discover our divinity; Jesus was only a good teacher; Christianity is but one among many ways to eternal life; reincarnation is real; Jesus was married; truth is relative; there is no sin; and perfection is possible.

    Story

    I have read or heard almost all of Ravi Zacharias' books and have never been disappointed in the lessons I have learned or the vast knowledge of world views and beliefs other than his own accepted Christianity. Although apologist is a transliteration of the apologia or defense of the faith, which we all as professing Christians should be practicing, Ravi gives history and proofs from history of the reality of the truth of Christianity. I am happy to have experienced another of his learned texts. Thanks Ravi for giving such an educated defense of the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
    God Bless you in your life and work

  • Humilitas: A Lost Key to Life, Love, and Leadership

    Humility, or holding power loosely for the sake of others, is sorely lacking in today's world. Without it, many people fail to develop their true leadership potential and miss out on genuine fulfillment in their lives and their relationships. Speaker and historian John Dickson shows how the virtue of humility was an important character trait for the "greats" of history and figures prominently in the findings of psychology and sociology.

    Sean says: "Humility is nearly impossible to capture in a book"

    Story

    As well as Humility can be recorded, described and expressed without sounding not at all humble, John Dickson has not disappointed. I am however, biased because I tend to enjoy all of his books I listen to or read. He is a very learned, capable writer, and seems to love difficult concepts to capture in the written form. He is a humble man though I think he would say he has not got a good grasp of humility at all.
    John Dickson is an incredible teacher, Pastor, with an uncanny ability to capture subject matter that most would run from. I will read and listen to this book again throughout the years. I have much to learn on the matter.

    Having completed the two cycles of legend to which she has devoted her career so far, Anne Rice gives us now her most ambitious and courageous book, a novel about the early years of Christ the Lord, based on the Gospels and on the most respected New Testament scholarship.

    Matthew says: "Breaking new ground"

    Story

    Anne Rice did not dissapoint. The fictional young life of Jesus could have been just this way. After all He did have amazing powers. I am not sure God would have endangered Him in such a way as to have these powers just jump out of Him without knowledge of what was happening and how draining it was. But I really enjoyed her imaginary story and would listen to it again. The reader was realistic (meaning he sounded like a 12 year old boy) I have always liked Anne Rice's work and was not disappointed in this work either.
