    Taking his trademark intellectual approach to understanding Christianity, Timothy Keller uncovers the essential message of Jesus, locked inside his most familiar parable. Within that parable Jesus reveals God's prodigal grace toward both the irreligious and the moralistic. This book will challenge both the devout and skeptics to see Christianity in a whole new way.

    Despite being a winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 2008, Philip Schultz could never shake the feeling of being exiled to the “dummy class” in school, where he was largely ignored by his teachers and peers and not expected to succeed. Not until many years later, when his oldest son was diagnosed with dyslexia, did Schultz realize that he suffered from the same condition.

    Would you consider the audio edition of My Dyslexia to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read it only listened.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, but it was very introspective for my student and myself.


    Any additional comments?

    Might not be appropriate until a student is in middle school due to some life circumstances of the author. Great biography of a writer's struggle with dyslexia. Highly recommend.

    Being the crown princess of Genovia has never been easy for Mia. And if ruling a tiny country wasn't enough, she also has to deal with a broken heart after her true love Michael breaks up with her. So her parents send her to a therapist to at least get her out of bed. And just when she thinks things couldn't get any worse, she discovers a long buried secret that could affect her family forever.

    Laura says: "Outstanding book in a strong series"

    What disappointed you about Princess Mia?

    The language that was used in a book for children, even though they are older children. The content was rather shallow.


    What could Meg Cabot have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Kept it cleaner and more appropriate for middle school girls.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment

    It's easy for American Christians to forget how Jesus said his followers would actually live, what their new lifestyle would actually look like. They would, he said, leave behind security, money, convenience, even family for him. They would abandon everything for the gospel. They would take up their crosses daily...BUT WHO DO YOU KNOW WHO LIVES LIKE THAT? DO YOU?

    Where does Radical rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's in the top for content


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

    Yes, but it was too long.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen before criticizing. Don't bother listening if you are willing to respond with you life.
