    "The Cloud of Unknowing" is one of Christianity's enduring mysteries, a meditative state where God is experienced on the deepest interior level. To move beyond thoughts and feelings and into the arms of the divine spirit, we have been given the gift of contemplative prayer.

    Overall

    I started using Lectio Divina several months ago and have found a new and exciting committment to pray. As many who strugle with prayer, Lectio and this book on contemplation is a must for those looking to be active in prayer or to jump start your current prayer life.I always spent time in a monologue with God...now we have a dialogue.It is very comforting to rest in the silence of the King.

    Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.

    Overall

    It was hard to stop listening.I had my doubts but approached this book as just a story for entertainment value. I read many reviews about the book good , bad and ugly.I had a very entertaining time listening and allot of questions. Bottom line, it's a very good novel with some stimulating thoughts.

  • The Modern Scholar: The Dead Sea Scrolls: The Truth behind the Mystique

    In this course, Professor Lawrence H. Schiffman imparts a clear understanding of what the Dead Sea Scrolls are, and even more importantly, what they are not. Indeed, everything about the Scrolls, from their long road to full publication to the haggling over dating and translation, has been shrouded in controversy. In these lectures, Professor Schiffman gives a fascinating explanation of the content of the Scrolls and the times in which the Scrolls were kept.

    "Detailed"
    Overall

    WOW! The first few chapters should me made into a movie...it had me hanging onto the edge of my seat.The rest was the book was very detailed for those looking for a deep look into the scrolls and their background. I thought the entire presentation was awesome.

    I have listened to this audio book twice. There is so much information I tended to get lost. Maybe I'll get a notepad on the 3rd time.

    Mere Christianity is C.S. Lewis' forceful and accessible doctrine of Christian belief. First heard as informal radio broadcasts and then published as three separate books, The Case for Christianity, Christian Behavior, and Beyond Personality, Mere Christianity brings together what Lewis sees as the fundamental truths of the religion.

    Pastor Jim Cymbala believes that Jesus wants to renew his people - to call us back from spiritual dead ends, apathy, and lukewarm religion. In this compelling audio presentation, Cymbala tells the story of the Brooklyn Tabernacle, a struggling congretation of 20 - until they began to pray, and God began to move, and street-hardened lives by the hundreds were transformed by Christ's love.

    "Exciting"
    Overall

    I read this book several years ago and decided to buy the audio version to listen to. It started a new fire in me about the committment we all need in regards to prayer.I was so excited I purchased 30 hard copys and gave them away in our church. We are having Concerts of Prayer on a regular basis. Don't miss the opportunity to buy this audio book...it is awesome!

Now you can experience the entire Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, wherever you are...with understanding you never thought possible.
