  • The Case for Christ: A Journalist's Personal Investigation of the Evidence for Jesus

    Is there credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God? Lee Strobel cross-examines a dozen experts with doctorates from schools like Cambridge, Princeton, and Brandeis. Strobel challenges them with questions like. How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence exist for Jesus outside the Bible? Strobel's tough questions make this read like a captivating, fast-paced novel. It's a riveting quest for the truth about history's most compelling figure. What will your verdict be?

    Jeff says: "Interesting Approach to the New Testament"
    "I'm on my FOURTH listen...it's that rich!"
    Overall

    Loved every morsel of this work by Lee Strobel. Each and every interviewee has exceptional insight, so much so that I'm about a quarter the way through a fourth listen, it's that detailed. My wife thinks I'm a little dingy, but as a Christian who enjoys apologetics this audio version is truly a rich experience. Some may not like Dick Fredricks' change of voice for each interview, but his remarkable talent (a different, appropriate accent/inflection/pace for each voice) heightens the listening experience for me.

    Do you remember your first time? People tend to remember the moment they first heard The Rush Limbaugh Show on the radio. For Zev Chafets, it was in a car in Detroit, driving down Woodward Avenue. Limbaugh's braggadocio, the outrageous satire, the slaughtering of liberal sacred cows performed with the verve of a rock-n-roll DJ-it seemed fresh, funny and completely subversive.

    Thomas G. Romano says: "Great Insights into an Iconic Figure"
    "Enjoyed it, despite poor narration"
    Overall

    As an avid Rush fan for many years, I consumed this audiobook in two sittings. Enjoyed knowing more of the story -- especially his radio days -- that Rush has mentioned now and then through the years.

    Who chose this narrator? Ouch! Annoyingly choppy. Obviously not a Rush listener either, he mangles the "Duddle lit, duddle lit, duddle lit" vocalization Rush leads with in some of his impromptu updates. The narrator also mispronounces Mark Levin's name. Good grief, Mark is a best-selling author and has his own syndicated radio show, can't we get his name right?

  • 10 Books That Screwed Up the World: And 5 Others That Didn't Help

    You've heard of the "Great Books"? These are their evil opposites. From Machiavelli's The Prince to Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto to Alfred Kinsey's Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, these "influential" books have led to war, genocide, totalitarian oppression, family breakdown, and disastrous social experiments. And yet these authors' bad ideas are still popular and pervasive. Here with the antidote is Professor Benjamin Wiker.

    Aaron says: "Some merit, but more religious masquerade"
    "Wow! Have listened to it twice, it's rich."
    Overall

    The final chapter alone is worth the price of the audiobook. Wiker is masterful in both his precise analysis of each book and the words he chooses. I was blown away. Thank you Benjamin Wiker.

    When he hit the airwaves 30 years ago, John Stossel helped create a whole new category of news, dedicated to protecting and informing consumers. As a crusading reporter, he chased snake-oil peddlers, rip-off artists, and corporate thieves, winning the applause of his peers.

    But along the way, he noticed that there was something far more troublesome going on: While the networks screamed about the dangers of exploding BIC lighters and coffeepots, worse risks were ignored.

    Bill says: "Could be the original No Spin Zone"
    "Facts and reason at a fun pace."
    Overall

    Expressive, nicely-paced delivery by Stossel (after all, he is a professional broadcaster, right?). He snaps off compelling arguments about nearly every hot topic in today's America. If you like his stuff on ABC, you'll dig this, because the listen is laced with actual audio from revealing interviews he conducted over a career that, surprisingly, spans nearly four decades.

  • My FBI: Bringing Down the Mafia, Investigating Bill Clinton, and Fighting the War on Terror

    Story

    Louis Freeh led the Federal Bureau of Investigation from 1993 to 2001, through some of the most tumultuous times in its long history. This is the story of a life in law enforcement and of one man's determined struggle to strengthen and reform the FBI while ensuring its freedom from political interference.

    David says: "Detailed, drags at times, but overall very good."
    "Detailed, drags at times, but overall very good."
    Overall

    Just finished the book this weekend and liked it. His clarity of thought makes me think he's the kind of guy who keeps copious notes in whatever he does. Strikes me as an utterly no-nonsense, honest judge and prosecutor. Disparaged as a "Boy Scout," his high esteem for the rule of law oozes from his words. At times, the listen drags because of Freeh's detail. The Mafia, OK City bombing, Unabomber, Khobar Towers, USS Cole, Sept 11, Clinton investigations, FBI spies, etc. -- it's all here. I read that Joe Lockhart, former Clinton Press Secretary, characterizes the book as "following the right-wing playbook," but Freeh's remarks about Clinton are frank and fair and take an appropriate fraction of the book. Best I can tell, Louis Freeh's political leanings are liberal Republican or even moderate Democrat. He writes favorably of Nelson Rockefeller, Warren Rudman, and Rudy Guliani and has several liberal friends, including Bill Clinton's first White House counsel, Bernie Nussbaum (who recommended Freeh to Clinton), and Bob Bennett, Clinton's lawyer in the Paula Jones case.
