  • God's Problem: The Bible Fails to Answer Our Most Important Question - Why We Suffer

    In times of questioning and despair, people often quote the Bible to provide answers. Surprisingly, though, the Bible does not have one answer but many "answers" that often contradict one another.

    Overall

    I have read several of Bert Ehrman books and all of them have been educational, surprising and enlightening. This book is of a little different tone then I am use to from Ehrman but was none the less very good. He, for the first time, seems to put his belief or opinion forward in this discussion. I feel as though I got to know him better and therefore got to know what motivates him in writing his books. I did find that the main theme through the book, suffering, was a little scary and came very close to home. You see I listen to his books as I take my best friend and companion out for a walk every night. But just as the book was about to end my boxer took ill and died in my back yard of a cardiac arrest. He was only 5 1/2 years of age. To make an already bad story even worse this was the second boxer that I had that died young. I still have the last 5 minutes of the book to finish listening to but I just can’t muster the courage. So the question put forward in this book became relevant. If there is a God why would he let such things happen? uuuummmm...Not sure I can answer that but I can recommend you read this book. Good Luck

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    WOW, How did this happen? My very thought after finishing what I dare to say will become the book of the decade. I was at work one day, at the small business I own, when an associate of mine came up to me and announced that he was reading a book, a very good book and the he thought maybe I could get something out of it that would help me manage my own place. Curious I asked him the name of the book to which he said The new book Steve Jobs. A silence hung in the air for a moment. Steve Jobs, I thought, why would I possibly read a book about a arrogant, abusive, selfish, a-hole. But that very afternoon with I-phone in hand I purchased and down loaded the book.
    First to Mr. Baker who read this audio book there could have not been a better person to choose. His deep and commanding voice combined with a calmness made for a perfect dynamic reading of this book.
    Second to Mr. Isaacson. The task that you took on would have scared even the bravest and most talented writers away. My hat is off to you.
    And now for Steve Jobs, After reading this book I really can’t say that it changed my opinion about him but it most certainly changed my perspective. I couldn’t tell you everything I have learned and I am not sure I could have even put it into words. The one thing I can tell you is Steve Jobs was an enigma, a counter diction in terms. I never thought much about him and the things I did think of him I still do. But he was a walking counter diction genius. Read the book, read it with a predefined opinion of him. See if you don’t find yourself as blind sided as I did. I am sorry he won’t be here to see us through the next 20 years. I almost want to say I’ll miss you Steve. But that would be silly, Its only a book about someone I never met. Thank you Steve Jobs, the world will be a duller place in every way without you. And thank you Mr. Isaacson and Mr. Baker. Both of you did a job of a life time.

    When world-class biblical scholar Bart Ehrman first began to study the texts of the Bible in their original languages he was startled to discover the multitude of mistakes and intentional alterations that had been made by earlier translators. In Misquoting Jesus, Ehrman tells the story behind the mistakes and changes that ancient scribes made to the New Testament and shows the great impact they had upon the Bible we use today.

    R. J. Monts says: "a (mostly) balanced discussion"
    "Great Book but To much at times"
    Overall

    I have read 2 of Bart D. Ehrman books and this one I found very intreasting but way to long in parts. It seemed that he really was stuggling to get his point accross at time when in fact he already had. He is very pasionate.

  • Jesus, Interrupted: Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible

    Picking up where Bible expert Bart Ehrman's New York Times best seller, Misquoting Jesus, left off, Jesus, Interrupted addresses the larger issue of what the New Testament actually teaches...and it's not what most people think. This is the book that pastors, educators, and anyone interested in the Bible have been waiting for, a clear and compelling account of the central challenges we face when attempting to reconstruct the life and message of Jesus.

    Paul says: "Excellent book"
    "A great Book of thought provoking subjects"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. After reading Misquating Jesus I found that this book was much more informative and coverd more area.

  • Jesus Through the Centuries: His Place in the History of Culture

    One of the most highly regarded works of intellectual history of the past decade, Jesus Through the Centuries is an original and compelling study of the impact of Jesus on cultural, political, social, and economic history. Noted historian and theologian Jaroslav Pelikan reveals how the image of Jesus created by each successive epoch - from rabbi in the first century to liberator in the 19th and 20th centuries - is a key to understanding the temper and values of that age.

    Overall

    This author must be so impressed with his vocabulary and education that he loves to show it off
    by constructing the longest sentences in the world that say absolutely nothing. Now that takes
    real talent. After reading this book I could not really tell what his stance is on religion. I was so
    amazed that I would let some friend listen to exerts from the book to see what they thought and
    the answer was always the same “WHAT?” The biggest waist of time for me and for the author
    who must have spent hours and hours formulating this book so that you the reader would be as
    confessed or more confessed after reading it then before. I give this book an F for failure.

  • Helen of Troy: A Novel

    Daughter of a god, wife of a king, prize of antiquity's bloodiest war, Helen of Troy has inspired artists for millennia. Now Margaret George, the highly acclaimed best-selling historical novelist, has turned her intelligent, perceptive eye to the myth that is Helen of Troy.

    Amazon Customer says: "A Very Different Take Than Homer"
    "Never Let Down"
    Overall

    As with all the previous books written by Margaret George, Helen of Troy was entrancing. Learning history can be such a bore but Margaret George makes learning about historical figures so real and memorable that one would think they had some how traveled though time and actually became a part of that person life. She breaths life into a otherwise 2 dimensional historical figure. If you are a fan of Margaret George then you know this is a must read and if you have not discovered this great authors work yet I would greatly recommend you introduce yourself to the wonderful world of historical fiction in a novel. You wont be sorry.
