    Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.

    I don't know how many times I've read the book. This was the first listen to an unabridged reading. It is still great. I'm somewhat prepared for the movie.

    What if all the bad news you've been hearing about Christians isn't true? Here are some facts that may surprise you: Evangelicals are more respected by society today than they were 20 years ago. Divorce rates of Christian couples are lower than those of nonbelievers. The percentage of young people who attend church has held steady over the past 20 years. All these statements are true, yet we’ve been told the opposite time and time again. Why is the church being misled?

    Story

    I was expecting another screed but from a right wing Christian perspective. After a second recommendation of the book I went ahead and listened. It was a rational, statistically based explaination of media both Christian and Secular. There is no sugar coating of shortcomings that do exist. It provides an excellent basis for critiqing statistics one hears from Christian leadership especially when they are trying to "sell" something be it a conference or a fear based call to action.

    Take the test first to identify your characteristics then you can focus on the ones that describe you instead of listening to all of them and wonder which apply.

    We have a lot to sort through on any given day. A whole lot to navigate over the course of a week or a month. All day long we are making choices. How do we know what to do?

    We have two options.

    We can trudge through on our own, doing our best to figure it all out. Or, we can walk with God - as in, learn to hear his voice. Really. He offers to speak to us and guide us. Every day. It is an incredible offer. To accept that offer is to enter into an adventure filled with joy and risk, transformation and breakthrough. And more clarity than we ever thought possible.

    American culture does not accept that there is a spiritual component to life. Sometimes there is a generic acknowledgement. This was a reminder of the reality of that Spiritual component.

    Have we been taught to discount the veracity and deeper meaning of our emotional resonance with the world around us? In The Abolition of Man, C.S. Lewis looks at the curriculum of the English "prep school" and begins to wonder if this subliminal teaching has indeed produced a generation who discount such a nature.

    A well written and informative book. By focusing on a subject I got a clearer understanding of his position than I had from the news media even the ones that don't hate him. They must move on to the next day's sensational news. I still don't agree with some decisions but then neither does he. That is reality as opposed to the sound bites prefered by shallow minds, journalists and politicians. (While informative, it will not change the mind of anyone who hates him.)

    In this eagerly anticipated memoir, Palin paints an intimate portrait of growing up in the wilds of Alaska; meeting her lifelong love; her decision to enter politics; the importance of faith and family; and the unique joys and trials of life as a high-profile working mother. She also opens up for the first time about the 2008 presidential race, providing a rare, mom's-eye view of high-stakes national politics - from patriots dedicated to "Country First" to slick politicos bent on winning at any cost.

    Mike & Jan Geihsler says: "Needed unabridged"
    "I didn't hear that from the main stream media."
    Overall

    If your understanding of Sarah Palin is based upon reporting from the "impartial" main stream media you need to hear her perspective in her own words on the events before and after her Vice Presidential candidacy. If you can't think for yourself don't bother.

    In the 25th century, humankind has spread throughout the galaxy, monitored by the watchful eye of the U.N. While divisions in race, religion, and class still exist, advances in technology have redefined life itself. Now, assuming one can afford the expensive procedure, a person's consciousness can be stored in a cortical stack at the base of the brain and easily downloaded into a new body (or "sleeve") making death nothing more than a minor blip on a screen.

    Jake Williams says: "Altered Carbon"
    "Sexually explicit"
    Overall

    The plot was interesting and writing was engaging. The book was too sexually explicit so I did not finish.
