The talent of the readers.
Moses, because he was a multi-faceted personality.
I was built up spiritually.
Hearing Lewis read the book himself!
I really can't think of one at the moment.
Again, hearing Lewis read the book himself.
Finding different ways to love.
As a Classical Greek minor, I was a little disappointed that Lewis (a Greek scholar himself) only discussed four words for love in Greek. There are at least seven that I'm aware of. Despite this flaw, however, I highly recommend this audiobook, even though I'm an Atheist. :)
Hearing the details of Lewis' early life and his almost accidental conversion to Christianity.
Lewis' "A Grief Observed," as both give you insight into Lewis' life: one his early life and conversion, the other his crisis of faith and grief over the death of his wife.
Cosham is a very excellent reader, and his inflections and overall delivery exude his thorough familiarity with the text. For me, this made listening to the audiobook a superior experience to my just plodding through the text on my own.
Lewis' comment regarding finding a friend: something like, "What? You too? I thought I was the only one!"
A must for Lewis lovers.
Lewis' fine mind, even though I disagree with him as an Atheist.
See the above comment.
Yes. It was another Lewis audiobook, I think. He is a consistently excellent reader.
Yes, but it is *way* too long to do that.
C. S. Lewis is the greatest Christian apologist of the 20th Century.... hell, of *any* century. Whether you're a Christian who agrees with him or an Atheist like me, you'll appreciate his great intellect and fine use of the English language.
Yes, both my atheist friends & my religious friends, because it is way funny & brutally honest.
The mixture of humor & truth, just like the first book, "God, No!"
Yes. I listened to "God,No!" Both audiobooks are five stars across the board.
The Real Truth, Whether You Like It Or Not
Again, not for the faint of heart.
The mixture of humor and truth.
Penn Jillette! He is extremely funny and unwaveringly honest.
Yes, I've listened to the sequel to this audiobook. I'd say that both audiobooks are five stars across the board!
I *wanted* to, but it was too long to do that, as I ran out of amphetamines. LOL!
This is not for the faint of heart.
It is in the #1 position!
I liked the fact that, although the story contains an immense amount of suffering, tragedy and sorrow, there is also such great love and hope.
I *loved* the fact that this book was read by Frank McCourt, the only one who could read properly, really. For example, when he recounts the songs his father would sing, Frank McCourt actually *sings* the songs, rather than just reading the lyrics.
A film *has* been made of this book! If you don't own it on DVD, you should get it.
