  • Counterfeit Gods: The Empty Promises of Money, Sex, and Power, and the Only Hope that Matters

    In Counterfeit Gods, Keller applies his trademark approach to show us how a proper understanding of the Bible reveals the unvarnished truth about societal ideals and our own hearts. This powerful message will cement Keller's reputation as a critical thinker and pastor, and comes at a crucial time - for both the faithful and the skeptical.

    What did you love best about Counterfeit Gods?

    The content was apropos for a world stuck in the grind of seeking the next success in various activities and exposes them for what they are in our lives - idols.
    Keller is articulate, uses great illustrations and applies Biblical truths masterfully to those who live today.

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

    Tom Parks did a fine job, but having heard Tim Keller, it was odd listening to his book with another person's voice.

  • Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap...And Others Don't

    Built To Last, the defining management study of the 90s, showed how great companies triumph over time and how long-term sustained performance can be engineered into the DNA of an enterprise from the very beginning. But what about companies that are not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness?

    What did you love best about Good to Great?

    It was good to have Jim Collins reading it. Some of the time he referenced material that has been updated since the original publication date, which made it a more enjoyable listen. Having the author read the story is usually a good thing in my mind.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    While this is a business principle book, I enjoyed Collins account of Admiral Stockdale and how his world view affected his ability to cope with being a POW and how that should impact the way we all think.


    What about Jim Collins’s performance did you like?

    Liked the personal stories and perspective.


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

    Sure, but who has that much time?!
