    Four men, one calling: to serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, and their partners willingly stand up to the worst the world can offer. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood. While they consistently give their best on the job, good enough seems to be all they can muster as dads. But they’re quickly discovering that their standard is missing the mark. They know that God desires to turn the hearts of fathers to their children, but their children are beginning to drift....

    Would you listen to Courageous again? Why?

    Maybe. It is exactly like the movie and I own the movie. That is the only reason I would not listen to it again.


    If you could rename Courageous, what would you call it?

    A book for parents. I know it is aimed at dads, but being a mother, I am also reminded how important time with your kids should be. We should all strive to be closer to God and if you get that right, most will just fall into place. But having said that, we should consider our time with our children precious because we have no idea how much time we have with them!!

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

    Maybe. It was an interesting story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked they used lots of people to read this story to differentiate the characters. I felt it helped me keep up better rather than using one person to do 20 voices.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a very engaging story. Hard to put down.

  • A Story of God and All of Us: A Novel Based on the Epic TV Miniseries 'The Bible'

    A Story of God and All of Us is a sweeping narrative that dramatizes some of the most important events and characters in the Bible. The book is narrated like a fine novel, dramatizing the sweep of biblical events, making the men and women of scripture come alive in vivid detail and dialogue. All are historically and theologically accurate. A 10-hour miniseries on the History Channel will be based on the story, and the script has been reviewed by a number of Christian church leaders and seminarians for authenticity.

    If you could sum up A Story of God and All of Us in three words, what would they be?

    Our great history!


    What other book might you compare A Story of God and All of Us to and why?

    The Bible :-)

    Mark Burnett and Roma Downey did a great job picking some of the stories from the Bible to engage people to want to know more about the Bible.


    If you could take any character from A Story of God and All of Us out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Paul, his testimony is amazing, but I would take anyone from this story. In all the stories, the people had such a deep faith that is hard to even fathom these days. If we thought we heard a voice out of a burning bush today, or a voice telling us to build a big boat to prepare for a flood, or to march around huge walls for several days, etc. people would think that we were crazy. Stories of amazing faith!!

    More than 40 years ago, Mario Puzo wrote his iconic portrait of the Mafia underworld as told through the fictional first family of American crime, the Corleones. The leader, Vito Corleone, is the Godfather. He is a benevolent despot who stops at nothing to gain and hold power. His command post is a fortress on Long Island from which he presides over a vast underground empire that includes the rackets, gambling, bookmaking, and unions. His influence runs through all levels of American society, from the cop on the beat to the nation's mighty.

    What did you love best about The Godfather?

    It's a good story. It's a classic.


    Have you listened to any of Joe Mantegna’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    A bit vulgar, but it is the Godfather, so you have to expect that. Not as bad as the movie though.

    During his years in a neural-health facility, Pat Peoples has formulated a theory about silver linings. He believes that his life is a movie produced by God, that his mission is to become physically fit and emotionally supportive, and that if he succeeds, his happy ending will be the return of his estranged wife, Nikki. When Pat goes to live with his parents, everything seems changed: no one will talk to him about Nikki, and his new therapist seems to be recommending adultery as a form of therapy.

    Did The Silver Linings Playbook inspire you to do anything?

    Be more cautious of the books I get.


    Any additional comments?

    Like I said in the headline, I liked the book more than the movie, but that isn't saying much.

    Folksy and fresh, endearing and affecting, Fried Green Here is the now-classic novel of two women in the 1980s; of gray-headed Mrs. Threadgoode telling her life story to Evelyn, who is in the sad slump of middle age. The tale she tells is also of two women - of the irrepressibly daredevilish tomboy Idgie and her friend Ruth - who back in the thirties ran a little place in Whistle Stop, Alabama, a Southern kind of Cafe Wobegon offering good barbecue and good coffee and all kinds of love and laughter, even an occasional murder.

    I laughed, I cried and my husband made fun of me, haha.

    The sequel you’ve been waiting for: the follow-up to the sensational number-one best seller The Devil Wears Prada. Andrea "Andy" Sachs is on top of the world, running her own very successful high-fashion bridal magazine. But she got there with the help of her rolodex - actually, the rolodex of Miranda Priestly, her former nightmare of a boss. As Andy's success grows, she realizes she'll soon have to face Miranda. Still, Andy can hardly anticipate the horrifying reality that’s approaching - a reversal so profound that she will be squarely in Miranda’s crosshairs once more.

    What disappointed you about Revenge Wears Prada?

    Felt like the story was forced and conflict just thrown in out of nowhere.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lauren Weisberger again?

    Maybe...


    What character would you cut from Revenge Wears Prada?

    The old boyfriend from the first book, not Alex, but the other. Serves no real purpose.


    Any additional comments?

    Felt like the cussing was excessive. Let us use real words, please.
