  • The Roots of Obama’s Rage

    D’Souza explains that the reason Obama appears to be working to destroy America from within is found, as Obama himself admits, in The Dreams of My Father: a deeply hostile anticolonialism. Instilled in him by his father, this worldview has led President Obama to resent America and everything we stand for. D’Souza masterfully shows how Obama is working to weaken and punish America here and abroad.

    "Very insightful"
    Overall

    This book gives the listener a more international view of what "chip on Obama's shoulder" really looks like. Mr. Obama is an actual African-American. He is not an American Negro. He is unlike the offspring of Negro slavery. He is anti-colonial, and he considers America and its close allies to be colonial exploiters of the Third World, the home of his African ancestors. He wants to bring America down. The voters better wake up before the 2012 Election and make this guy a one-term president before he transforms America into a place where its citizens have to eat cold rice out of a small bowl with their fingers, while waiting for the occasional bucket of raw fish heads from our new Chinese masters.

    Though exceptions do exist, the reality is that church in America is failing one life at a time. Somewhere between pathetically predictable and shamefully entertaining, sadly sentimental and rarely authentic, church has become worst of all...godless. Vertical Church points to a new day where God is the seeker, and we are the ones found. In Vertical Church God shows up, and that changes everything.

    If you could sum up Vertical Church in three words, what would they be?

    James MacDonald really presses every button and rings every bell for anyone who is in church ministry leadership. Everything he said is true and I knew it the moment I heard it. I just had never put it all into words the way he has in the Vertical Church book. Listen to it if you dare and be ready for some inner conversion among those who are intellectually honest about the future of the Christianity in the Western World.


    What other book might you compare Vertical Church to and why?

    This book has the potential to become a Christian classic so how about "Pilgrim's Progress." This book comes to us at a crossroads in what must be a turn of the tide to church glory or continued fall of the church into the slough of despond.

  • Lifesigns: Intimacy, Fecundity, and Ecstasy in Christian Perspective

    In Lifesigns, Nouwen explores three elements of what he considered the call of all people: Intimacy - the gospel invitation to communion with God and relationship with others; Fecundity - the exhortation to be open to a fruitful life of both growth and change; Ecstasy - the Gospel wish and promise of Jesus that "your joy may be complete". Nouwen shows how these elements are essential to our movement from the "house of fear" to the "house of love".

    Any additional comments?

    This book was used during the August 2011 Regional Deacon Convocation which was held in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Two breakout sessions were held, which were well attended. Dr. Michael W. Higgins, the official estate appointed biographer of Fr. Nouwen was our featured speaker on the this book and related subject matters. I recommend the audiobook for your listening enjoyment.

  • The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution

    Instead of the system that the Constitution intended, judges have created a system in which bureaucrats and appointed officials make most of the important policies. While the government claims to be a representative republic, somehow hot-button topics from gay marriage to the allocation of Florida's presidential electors always seem to be decided by unelected judges. What gives them the right to decide such issues? The judges say it's the Constitution.

    Matthew Groom says: "The best PIG to date"
    "A reality check on Constitution"
    Overall

    The U.S. Constitution was written and ratified by the founding fathers of America to be a system of government. The whole misguided notion of it being a living document is specious. This book is well worth the time time it takes to listen.
