    Josh Hamilton was the first player chosen in the first round of the 1999 baseball draft. He was destined to be one of those rare "high-character" superstars. But in 2001, working his way from the minors to the majors, all of the plans for Josh went off the rails in a moment of weakness. What followed was a four-year nightmare of drugs and alcohol, estrangement from friends and family, and his eventual suspension from baseball.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Beyond Belief to be better than the print version?

    His book was right on. He showed the world that you can, as the world says... Fall from Grace... Even though God tells us as a Believer, nothing can snatch you out of the Hand of God. Josh lost his way for a time while drugs and alcohol controlled him... His story shows you can hit bottom and reach up for God's Hand and come back to His loving arms. With true repentance He will restore your life to the blessing of God, as He planned from the beginning... I like the way it was written but then again I am a huge fan of Josh Hamilton as a Godly Man and also as an athlete...


    What did you like best about this story?

    In the end with God all things are possible... Josh proved it!


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

    no


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

    yes

    Written after his wife's tragic death as a way of surviving the "mad midnight moment," A Grief Observed is C.S. Lewis's honest reflection on the fundamental issues of life, death, and faith in the midst of loss. This work contains his concise, genuine reflections on that period: "Nothing will shake a man - or at any rate a man like me - out of his merely verbal thinking and his merely notional beliefs. He has to be knocked silly before he comes to his senses. Only torture will bring out the truth. Only under torture does he discover it himself."

    What made the experience of listening to A Grief Observed the most enjoyable?

    His honesty about his true feelings. You could feel his hurt.


    What other book might you compare A Grief Observed to and why?

    N/A


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Toward the end when he thought back to several things he had lost in life but nothing compared to the death of his wife.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the book because it was from a male perspective grieving his wife.

    When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

    It's always hard to know what to say when a friend loses a loved one. This gift book can speak for you. Although God allows lives to be broken, God never intends you to lead a broken life. Know that it is not God's plan to leave you alone in your sorrow....Pam had a wonderful life–happy marriage, successful career. The future was full of plans to travel and enjoy grandchildren. Then, in one heartbeat, everything changed.

    What did you like best about this story?

    She spoke from her heart... told her real feelings and hurts and made it real.


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

    Her emotions


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Several times... one remarkable was coming home and finding him dead.


    Any additional comments?

    My prayers for your healing and thank you for sharing your heart and making me know that some of the things I've gone through were not insane and are just part of the process. God Bless...

    In the years following the senseless and tragic shooting on the campus of New Life Church in northern Colorado Springs, Colorado, Senior Pastor Brady Boyd has received countless questions from the faith-filled and faithless alike. As the nation watched the suffering congregation reel from the gunman's rampage and, later, steady their stance once more, the one question on everyone's mind was, "How has New Life weathered such a horrible storm so well?"

    His personal account of this story.

    Any additional comments?

    Brady Boyd is anointed because he listened to God's Call on his life even when he didn't understand why, but his discernment afterwards gave proof to God's plan. I love to hear Pastor Brady preach online and at his visits to Gateway Church in Southlake, TX.
