    Story
    (12)

    17th Century Europe, the first Japanese ever to set foot in Europe, travel to Rome on a diplomatic mission. All are baptised, but upon returning to Japan they discover that the Shoguns no longer wish to forge links with the West, nor will they tolerate the Christian religion. The Samurai who have until now reviled their adoptive religion, begin to find it may be all that is left for them. The events in the story actually took place.

    In this gathering of inspiring stories from his numerous best-selling books, Lucado revisits some of his favorite biblical characters, all of whom were very human and imperfect, just like us.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Cast of Characters to be better than the print version?

    Yes - maybe. Because you get the author's intent since he is the one reading it. I like the short stories - very captivating.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cast of Characters?

    All of them!

  • The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change

    Story
    (1999)

    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    Anita says: "Excellent Insights"

    What made the experience of listening to The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People the most enjoyable?

    The context is very thought provoking and caused me to look inward to find some of life's solutions. It was very well done and I enjoyed it greatly.


    What other book might you compare The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People to and why?

    I am not really sure how to compare this to another as I have not read/or listened to anything of this nature.


    What about Stephen R. Covey’s performance did you like?

    So far I really like listening to books in which the actual author reads the text. It seems that he knows just where to put the emphasis; and where to pause for impact.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Don't let your situation define you.
