    As standards of conduct continue to erode in our shock-proof world, we must fight the soul pollution threatening our health, our faith, and our witness to others. Without even knowing it, people willingly inhale second-hand toxins poisoning their relationship with God and stunting their spiritual growth. Soul Detox examines the toxins that assault us daily, including toxic influences, toxic emotions, and toxic behaviors.

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

    Craig, does a great job, by taking a complex subject and with care and decrement points the ways to help a christian come to realization of what we are doing that corrupts our relationship with christ


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Soul Detox?

    just a little dog poop.....the concept that a little bad stuff in brownies spoils the entire brownie batch


    What does Craig Groeschel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His passion for others


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YUP, but had to get some work done too


    Any additional comments?

    If you are wondering why you are feeling neglected by God, this is a great book for you. It reminds you that, God never forsakes you. You just tune God out.

  • Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

    While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

    It was a decent read/listen.
    I really liked how the author intertwined so much fact you sometimes forgot what was fact or fiction.
    It kept me wanting to go back to it and finish it. I have already starting eyeing a few other books by Seth Grahame-Smith

    In a world where there are 68 million searches for pornography every day and where over 70 percent of Christian men report viewing porn in the last year, it’s no surprise that more and more men struggle with an addiction to this false fantasy. Common wisdom says if they just had more willpower or more faith, their fight would be over. Is the answer really that simple? According to counselor and ministry leader Michael John Cusick, the answer is no - but the truth may be much more freeing.

    Personally this was a hard book to read/listen too, because the honest truth in it was overwhelming at times.

    I didn't really the formula approach to over coming the addictions, but in all honestly and truth, it made sense. Fundamentally it holds true to the christian values that it is preaching.

    One struggle I seemed to have with it, was the simple fact of announce you are a sinner and all will be good. That doesn't always happen. Your wife may not be able to forgive you because you acted on your sin desire. Personally that part was over looked.

    But I agree with the concept that you have to acknowledged your sin, especially to the ones that are touched by your sin.

  • Not a Fan: Becoming a Completely Committed Follower of Jesus

    Pastor Kyle Idleman doesn't just want to be a fan of Jesus, he wants to full heartedly commit to him and be a follower of Jesus. But how can you make the leap from fan to follower? In Not a Fan Idleman uses biblical examples to show how the people who met Jesus also had to decide if they were fans or followers, and what it meant for them to then become followers.

    I have been eyeing this book for a month or so, trying to figure out if this is a book I need to read (listen too). I am so glad I took the plunge and have enjoyed it.
    The message is very challenging, I struggle sometimes with my relationship with God.

    Through this book, I have realized that I want to move into a much deeper relationship with God, I want to know him, and he wants me to know him.
