Andy Stanley lets us see behind the scenes what happens when you try to do great things for God. He talks with candor about the hard stuff as well as the good stuff. And he does so in a manner that is easy to understand in a challenging and engaging. One of the finest books on church life and development that I know of written with candor and refreshing honesty.
Churchill once said, "When the eagles stop talking, the parrots begin to jabber." He kept talking even when drowned out by the parrots and cowards of his day until eventually he was ALONE as the sole voice of wisdom and action. Copiously detailed. Integrally insightful. A political masterpiece.
Amazing story of the ultimate sacrifice. What if everyone was willing to live like this and sacrifice like this. Reader was excellent.
Art, architecture, philosophy, language, government, influence, the elevation of children and women. Jesus life changed the world in EVERY way. The only thing I wish could be different would be if John Ortberg would read it himself. However, the person selected to read it was as close to JO as could be possible. Listen to this and it will change your view of the one who changed the world forever.
Edmund Morris is a gift and offered us a gift in this treasured series. Theodore Roosevelt is arguably the architect of modern America and the consummate Profile In Courage. His life is also illustrative that we all live an immutable law of sowing and reaping in both good and hard ways. Roosevelt was bold and his boldness was rewarded. But Teddy was also a warrior and one of the greatest ironies of his life is that his youngest son, Quentin, was soon killed in the war that Roosevelt pushed then President Woodrow Wilson to fight. Read ALL 3 of Morris works.
Riveting. Revealing. The pathway to greatness is through adversity. Being a child of privilege is not necessarily a road to an easy life. Churchill almost never had it easy and there is so much to learn from his endurance and faithfulness.
Profound. Powerful. Real. I love it when an author reads their own work. Having heard Margaret live, it is inspiring to hear her present with inflections in her voice at the points where and how she intended in her writing. I found myself hungering and thirsting for God and identifying with what she said. Let her read this to you and your soul will leap, stir, and reflect.
Superbly written composition of the facts. FINALLY, a book to give some finality to this horrible national tragedy. Read it. Learn from it. Move on.
