    For many people, Islam remains a mystery. Here, Bernard Lewis and Buntzie Ellis Churchill examine Islam - what its adherents believe and how their religion has shaped them, their rich and diverse cultures, and their politics over more than 14 centuries. Considered one of the West's leading experts on Islam, Lewis, with Churchill, has written an illuminating introduction for those who want to understand the faith and the global challenges it confronts and presents.

    Would you listen to Islam again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to this book again. Bernard Lewis presents a very good overview of Islam from a scholarly perspective.


    What aspect of Peter Ganim’s performance would you have changed?

    His performance was okay, but there were several parts that sounded awkward.


    Any additional comments?

    This is an excellent introduction to Islam by a recognized scholar in the field. I listened to this book while driving in my car. Every moment listening to this book was time well spent.

    This audiobook will lead you to a closer life with Jesus Christ, whether you are a professed Franciscan or someone seeking a spiritual understanding of Francis and Clare of Assisi. Through a process of prayer, reflection, study texts, questions, and connections to Scripture, you will be formed in the Franciscan way of life.

    This book is an excellent collection of meditations based on the rule of the Secular Franciscan Order, but the narrator performed poorly for the recording. I ended up buying the e-book version from Amazon. After reading through the e-book version, I also think that this book is not suitable for the audio book format.

    Do not buy this audio book. Get a text edition.

  • Jesus of Nazareth

    In this bold, momentous work, the pope, in his first book written as Benedict XVI, seeks to salvage the person of Jesus from recent "popular" depictions and to restore Jesus' true identity as discovered in the Gospels. Through his brilliance as a theologian and his personal conviction as a believer, the pope shares a rich, compelling, flesh-and-blood portrait of Jesus and incites us to encounter, face-to-face, the central figure of the Christian faith.

    What made the experience of listening to Jesus of Nazareth the most enjoyable?

    Listening the Pope Benedict XVI's book Jesus of Nazareth was excellent. I have the paperback version of this book, but I wanted to listen to it while driving in my car or before going to bed.


    Any additional comments?

    I think this is a great one to have if you are a Catholic who wants to have greater insight into the person of Jesus from the pope's personal theological perspective, but it might be a little dense for people who do not have any theological background (which I am lucky to have). You will need the paperback version of this book if you want to do a serious study, but the audio version is fine if you want to make it more of a meditation.

    If you are interested in reading this book, I would get a paperback edition. The narration was unbearable. Do not waste your money on this audio book.
