  • The Pilgrim's Progress

    Few books besides the Bible have been translated, printed, and read as often as The Pilgrim's Progress. John Bunyan's classic allegory of Christian, the Pilgrim, on his perilous journey to the Celestial City has touched hearts and minds for more than 300 years, and still the demand continues.

    William says: "A well read update of the classic"
    "Where is part two?"
    Overall

    The book as it is is good. But it does not contain the pilgramage of Christian's wife and children, the second half of the book.

    The Empire stands at the brink of total collapse. But they have saved their most heinous plan for last. First a plot is hatched that could destroy the New Republic in a bloodbath of genocide and civil war. Then comes the shocking news that Grand Admiral Thrawn--the most cunning and ruthless warlord in history--has apparently returned from the dead to lead the Empire to a long-prophesied victory.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I only would only recommend it if they put up an unabridged version of the next book in the series.


    Any additional comments?

    It is only half a story. I don't recall anything getting resolved at the end of this "book".

    THINK Psychology covers the essentials every introductory psychology student should know. The chapters are briefer than a standard introductory text¿allowing for a lower cost to students and using less printed paper. Unlike other brief texts, THINK Psychology includes 18 chapters of content¿giving instructors the flexibility to choose what they want to cover without the worry that skipping several chapters will mean leaving out hundreds of pages of content.

    Jon says: "Great Info, Horible Naration"
    "Good"
    Overall

    It's nice but, like psychology itself, the book is steeped in a liberal materalist worldview. Still you can get some interesting information out of it.

  • Good Book: Things I Learned When I Read Every Single Word of the Bible

    Good Book is what happens when a regular guy actually reads the book on which his religion, his culture, and his world are based. Along the way, he grapples with the most profound theological questions: Does God prefer obedience or good deeds? And the most unexpected ones: Why are so many women in the Bible prostitutes? Why does God love bald men so much? Is Samson really that stupid? Good Book is an irreverent, enthralling journey through the world's most important work of literature.

    Amazon Customer says: "Lots of fun!"
    "The publisher's summary is a joke"
    Overall

    "At a time when wars are fought over scriptural interpretation" did Plotz write this in the 16th century during the protestant reformation?

    "when the influence of religion on American politics has never been greater", a time when people whine about "separation of church and state" whenever religion comes up in the context of government?

    This doesn't bode well for the quality of the book.
