I liked hearing how Stanley arrived at God's will for his life, how he related how he, his wife, and his church went through to arrive at a place that is bringing glory to God and leading many people into a growing relationship with Jesus.
Not Andy Stanley
I laughed, I cried, I thought deeply.
I wish Andy Stanley had read the book because I kept having to translate his voice into the story.
I need to listen to Charisma Myth again because she gave so much info, there was no way to bookmark everything. I'm actually thinking of purchasing a hard copy of it for study purposes.
I learned how to have more courage, how to dispel fear in social situations, how to talk to people--one-on-one, in a group, or giving a speech.
I felt like the author had watched one of my friends who has a lot of natural charisma and was writing about her life.
I would listen again because I love the humor of A.J. Jacobs and the way he checks out the literal interpretation of whatever he's writing about. Bless his wife.
I also listened to "The Year of Living Biblically" which is even funnier than this book. Jacobs can get into some real predicaments. And again, God bless his wife.
I laughed a lot while listening to this book -- it's great for traffic time.
Yes, because I didn't have time to read the print version.
I loved hearing about Bonhoeffer's courage to stand up for his beliefs.
When he visited a church in Harlem and, for the first time, truly experienced the Holy Spirit's presence. Would love to see Bonhoeffer's life as a movie, especially this scene.
I would listen to "Happy Happy Happy" again because the story of Phil Robertson's life and legacy is amazing.
To hear about how poor Phil's family was as he grew up, how the love of his wife helped turn him around when he had gone down a deadly path, and then how successful the Robertsons are is the story of the American dream.
Faith, Family, and Ducks make for a Happy Happy Happy Life.
I would listen to 11-22-63 again, especially the ending, because it's so beautiful and I got so engrossed in the story.
I have nothing to compare this book to, unless it's Ray Bradbury's "Somewhere a Band is Playing", but that doesn't even come close.
Craig Wasson sounded so similar to King and yet he could change voices on a dime--that was really cool.
The ending is very gripping, engrossing, sad, yet beautiful.
Can't wait for the movie!
