    C. S. Lewis was a profound thinker with the rare ability to communicate the philosophical and theological rationale of Christianity in simple yet amazingly effective ways. God in the Dock contains 48 essays and 12 letters written by Lewis between 1940 and 1963 for a wide variety of publications.

    Listening to this is like I suspect it would have been to listen at the feet of CS Lewis. Excellent and insightful in every respect. If you like Mr. Lewis, you will love this collection of letters, comments, personal talks, etc that he gave. Amazing mind!

    In this revised edition of a formerly four-volume work, James Boice provides an overview of all the major doctrines of Christian theology in one volume. Boice carefully opens the topics like the nature of God, the character of his natural and special revelation, the fall, and the person and work of Christ with scholarly rigor and a pastor's heart.

    What made the experience of listening to Foundations of the Christian Faith, Revised in One Volume the most enjoyable?

    I love RC Sproul's Foundations, but this work, though similar after a fashion, is actually more heart-warming. Get the book! I feel as though I am sitting in a class listening to Boice as his warm embrace of experiential theology is communicated with clarity and power. Denison is excellent in his treatment of the material.

    In a penetrating and forthright style, Edward M. Bounds offers stimulating advice to Christian servants. "The preaching that kills may have insight and grasp of principles, may be scholarly and critical in taste, may have every minutia of the derivation and grammar of the letter....and yet may be like a frost, a killing frost. Preaching which kills is prayerless preaching. Without prayer, the preacher creates death, and not life.

    Timeless classic that offers a rare but needed perspective. The church languishes today for lack of power: pulpit and pew. EMBounds reveals a fundamental. All true ministry flows out of a nearness to God by time spent in secret. Once a quarter would not be too often to resisted to this work. The quotes are remarkable. Fuel for your ministry.

    Buried deep within the consciousness of Sergeant Raymond Shaw is the mechanism of an assassin, a time bomb ticking toward explosion, controlled by the delicate skill of its Communist masters. Shaw returns from the Korean War to an idolizing and unsuspecting country. What follows is at once a spy story, a love story, and a sobering, yet outrageously funny satire on demagoguery in American politics.

    Father Hunger is a thoughtful and timely excursion into our culture of fatherlessness, what Wilson calls “the central malady of our time.” Central because it is the cause of so many of the ills we face - everything from atheism and crime to joyless feminism and paternalistic government expansion - but most important because of the effect it has on families, children, wives, and husbands. Bottom line: when fathers are checked out, left out, or ruled out, it hurts literally everyone.

    Wilson skillfully exposes the need of the Hour for Dads and for the Land at Large. His wit and wisdom are memorable; his pokes and well intended jabs are on target. I say this is one of the most remarkable books ever written for Dads and sons. I have walked through it at least 5 times and it is a must for Father's Day. Do yourself a big favor… shut up and listen. Wilson has something to say that we need hear and heed.

    In that first volume, we were introduced to the remarkable world of Roshar, a world both alien and magical, where gigantic hurricane-like storms scour the surface every few days and life has adapted accordingly. Roshar is shared by humans and the enigmatic, humanoid Parshendi, with whom they are at war.

    Would you listen to Words of Radiance again? Why?

    Words of the Radiance was almost as captivating as The Way of Kings. That was a tough act to follow. These characters become a part of life and dreams. I have listened to Way of Kings 6 or more times. I will eventually listen to Words as much. Great series. If you miss this then assume you have never done fantasy.


    What other book might you compare Words of Radiance to and why?

    Narnia by CS Lewis in an intrinsically brilliant way is comparable. Wheel of Time is comparable. The Dark Tower Series by Stephen King is very addictive and affects one's approach to life and reading. The Stormlight Archives does the same.The killer book of the series is still The Way of Kings. Sanderson needs to shift to a higher gear to produce book 3 el pronto.


    Have you listened to any of Michael Kramer and Kate Reading ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    These two are top shelf. Perhaps the best of the Best. If they read it I assume that there is quality by either their extraction or within the framework of their awesome performance addition. I have never been disappointed by either of these two. Great team.


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

    Yes. If possible I would have listened in a day. I cheated as I listened at 1.5 speed on the iphone.


    Any additional comments?

    Sanderson is truly a great writer. Creative and engaging in the way characters seem to step into our world. Great portrayal of the struggle within the good and bad of any people group.

    In the form of warm, relaxed letters to a close friend, C. S. Lewis meditates on many puzzling questions concerning the intimate dialogue between man and God. He considers practical and metaphysical aspects of prayer, such as when we pray and where. He questions why we seek to inform God in our prayers if he is omniscient, whether there is an ideal form of prayer, and which of our many selves we show to God while praying.

    Learn aspects of why CSL had a nearness to God that may well expand into your experience as you see and hear his perspective on prayer's place in the life of the believer.


    Would you recommend Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer to your friends? Why or why not?

    To my friends and enemies. Especially my enemies...

    Have you ever wondered about "the five points"? What do they really mean? You've heard of Reformed theology, but you're not certain what it is. It appears to be important, and you'd like to know more about it. But you want a full, understandable explanation, not a simplistic one. In this insightful book, R. C. Sproul will walk you through the foundations of the Reformed doctrine and explain how the Reformed belief is centered on God, based on God's Word, and committed to faith in Jesus Christ.

    This is is excellent treatise of the Reformed Faith. I cannot imagine a clearer presentation of these most needed Biblical truths, expecially in our generation. Listen and live!

    Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.

    Lore says: "Wow - 45 hours long and leaves you wanting more!"
    "A Must Listen~!!"
    Overall

    This is an addictive and intoxicating work by Sanderson that causes you to engage the characters and cheer them on from page to page. Of course, nearly anything that Michael Kramer and/or Kate Reading narrate is immediately placed to the top of my list. The only problem with this work is that you have to wait to see what Callidan and Zeke do in their eventual showdown. DON'T MISS THIS ONE! I listened almost NON-STOP.

    World-renowned scholar and preacher John R.

Here is a sound, sensible guide for those who are seeking an intellectually satisfying presentation of the Christian faith.
