  • The Life You've Always Wanted: Spiritual Discipline for Ordinary People

    The heart of Christianity is about transformation, about a God who isn't just concerned with our "spiritual lives", but who wants to impact every aspect of living. It's realizing that God meets us not in a monastery but on Main Street, and that all of ordinary, daily life has the potential to be lived as if Jesus himself were the one living it.

    Where does The Life You've Always Wanted rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was the first audible book I listened to, and I had nothing to compare it with. It was easy to listen to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Life You've Always Wanted?

    I love how the author relates his point with a story that the listener can identify with.


    What about Jay Charles’s performance did you like?

    He did a great job of reading.

  • Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear

    Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear.They're talking layoffs at work, slowdowns in the economy, flare-ups in the Middle East, turnovers at headquarters, downturns in the housing market, upswings in global warming. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up a 100-year lease on the building next door and set up shop. Can you imagine your life without fear?

    What did you love best about Fearless?

    The author deals with common fears that everyone either has dealt with, is dealing with, or will deal with (from not enough money in the bank to death). Because perfect love casts out fear, the author does a great job of drawing people to God's perfect love which removes fear.


    Any additional comments?

    Max has a desire to know the depths of God's love. When we love God with all of our heart, there is no room for fear.

    If you could sum up The Me I Want to Be in three words, what would they be?

    Refreshing, Insightful, Liberating


    What did you like best about this story?

    John does a great job of communicating Biblical truths that are not dry, irrelevant, or holier than thou. The author is speaking to me, not down to me.


    What about John Ortberg’s performance did you like?

    There is no doubt that John is speaking from firsthand experience in this book. In addition, his knowledge as a psychologist helps him relate to people better than theologians.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Do not compare yourself to other people.

  • Language and the Pursuit of Happiness: A New Foundation for Designing Your Life, Your Relationships and Your Results

    A new way of understanding language provides a powerful new foundation and a new set of tools for designing and re-designing your life, at home and at work, and everywhere in between. This is especially relevant for everyone seeking meaningful change in their lives, as well as those for whom building and maintaining mutually-beneficial relationships is important. And it's particularly useful for leaders, managers, salespeople and anyone else who "gets paid to have effective conversations"!

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I read this book because it was suggested through another book that I really enjoyed. I listened to about 2/3 of the book and finally stopped listening. It is a great book if you do not believe in absolute truth and that everything is relative.

    It is not wise to imply that by changing the definition of words to mean what I want them to mean will make me happy.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Chalmers Brothers again?

    No.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Language and the Pursuit of Happiness?

    The author read his own book. There is not much you could do to change what the author wanted to communicate.
