    Scott Hahn crafts a powerful message that extols the virtue of confession. According to Hahn, the sacrament of reconciliation is the key to spiritual growth. Through each act of forgiveness, we are able to more closely resemble the divine life.

    "great content, annoyingly narrated"
    Overall

    I thought the book was good but the narration a bit slow. I wished I had a speed up option on my ipod to speed the narrator up a notch or two.

    With the sweep and vitality of a great novel, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David McCullough presents the enthralling story of John Adams. This is history on a grand scale - an audiobook about politics, war, and social issues, but also about human nature, love, religious faith, virtue, ambition, friendship and betrayal, and the far-reaching consequences of noble ideas. Read by History Channel host Edward Herrmann!

    Thomas says: "fantastic"
    "A great way to learn about our Founding Fathers"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book. I am glad I decided on the abridged, however. The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars was the female who filled in the gaps occasionally. She reminded me of the voice on an emergency weather radio that I think is computerized, yuk!

    Talibanic enforcers burning books? The Supreme Court deciding that sharia law doesn't violate the "separation of church and state"? The Hollywood Left embracing polygamy? If you think these things can't happen, you haven't been paying attention, as the hilarious and provocative columnist Mark Steyn shows to devastating effect in this, his first book on American and global politics.

    A User says: "Got to read more from Mark Steyn"
    "Fascinating and Funny"
    Overall

    If there's anyone who can be funny while listing some of the most depressing statistics and info it's Mark Steyn. This is a must read to get the big picture on the threat of Islam.

  • Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer

    The murder of Abraham Lincoln set off the greatest manhunt in American history, the pursuit and capture of John Wilkes Booth. From April 14 to April 26, 1865, the assassin led Union cavalry and detectives on a wild 12-day chase through the streets of Washington, D.C., across the swamps of Maryland, and into the forests of Virginia, while the nation, still reeling from the just-ended Civil War, watched in horror and sadness.

    Elizabeth says: "Fascinating!"
    "Reads like novel.."
    Overall

    This book backs up the saying that, "Truth is stranger than fiction". Swanson's research and knowledge of all the characters in Lincoln's assasination combined with his amazing writing skill brought them to life. The history of this event jumped off the page. Highly recommend.

  • Saint Thomas Aquinas, the Dumb Ox

    Story

    Careless about dress and demeanor and other worldly fripperies, St. Thomas was a man who enjoyed banquets, conviviality, jokes and pranks. His inner certitude aboutreligious truth permitted him to accept the world and its freedom and it endowed him with a childlike innocence. In what many consider to be his best work, G.K. Chesterton portrays St. Thomas in a light that few have imagined.

    GLENN says: "Delivers what he promises"
    "Boring Listen"
    Overall

    I do like Chesterton, but often find his style hard to follow. This was just not easy to finish.

    Be inspired by saints like never before in My Life with the Saints by James Martin, SJ. This best-selling memoir of spiritual self-discovery is an homage to the saints who have accompanied Fr. Martin throughout his life. From a lukewarm childhood Catholicism, to the Wharton School of Business, to the executive fast track at General Electric, to the Jesuits, to a media career in Manhattan, Martin has relied on the saints to intervene in and guide his life.

    Amazon Customer says: "The title describes the book"
    "Personable and Informative"
    Overall

    I loved this book because not only do you learn a lot about many saints, the author weaves them into his own autobiographical sketch. He highlights the saints meaning to him during a partcular time in his life. His story is also a testament to the energetic and interesting life a Jesuit leads. This book would be great for everyone, but especially good for someone considering the priesthood or religious life.
