    The ordeal of the whaleship Essex was an event as mythic in the nineteenth century as the sinking of the Titanic was in the twentieth. In 1819 the Essex left Nantucket for the South Pacific with 20 crew members aboard. In the middle of the South Pacific the ship was rammed and sunk by an angry sperm whale. The crew drifted for more than 90 days in three tiny whaleboats, succumbing to weather, hunger, and disease and ultimately turning to drastic measures in the fight for survival.

    Besides an amazing true story, it was a great peek into the hardships of life in the 1800's.

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    Story

    I like Bill O'Reilly but he reads this book like the history teacher he once was,as if he is lecturing to a class on this subject for the 100th time. At the end of a sentence the pitch of the words goes up ,then the end of the next sentence the pitch goes down. Up and down , up and down, very distracting. Other than that it was great story.

  • God Without Religion: Can It Really Be This Simple?

    Story

    God without religion? Andrew Farley’s experience as a Christian was first characterized by self-effort as he tried to please God at any cost. His ruthless religion resulted in spiritual fatigue and disillusionment with church. Only then did he discover what relaxing in Jesus means and how enjoying God’s intimate presence can transform everyday life. Using a story-driven format, God without Religion dismantles common religious misconceptions. Pulling no punches, Andrew shows how the truth about these controversial issues can liberate and unify believers....

    Story

    Great book for those who know or need to know that Jesus didn't come here to start a new religion, but to restore a relationship. The narration was fun and the little side stories made it really interesting.....Loved it!
