    In A Father Who Keeps His Promises, the popular Catholic apologist Scott Hahn focuses on the “big picture” of Scripture: God’s plan in making and keeping covenants with us throughout salvation history—despite our faults and shortcomings—so that we might live as the family of God.

    Story
    Would you listen to A Father Who Keeps His Promises again? Why?

    Excellent content but the reading is a bit monotonous and not converstational. So at times I dozed off.


    What did you like best about this story?

    how the crucifixion was the 4th cup and consummation of the Passover Seder.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Read the book like he was talking to someone. Not just reading it to himself aloud. Monotonous at times.


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

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Very good solid Christian teaching that will motiviate you to live in a more Christ Like way.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Destruction of Jerusalem the most enjoyable?

    If you think God is all lovey dovey and forgives everything no matter what -- listen to this. What happened in Jerusalem is a good reminder that if God will do this to Jerusalem and the Israelites -- he won't spare anyone who spurns the blood of His Son Jesus. It will put a new spin on why you should fear God. Very sobering what happens in this book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Destruction of Jerusalem?

    When the woman cooks her baby in a stew and offers it to the Roman Centurion who couldn't believe what was happening.


    What about Norman Dietz’s performance did you like?

    Excellent converstational style -- very engaging.


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

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    Don't spurn the blood of Jesus - within one generation of Jesus' death (30ad to 70 ad = 40 years) look what Happened to Jerusalem. Serious business!

    For twelve years, Mary Buffett had the privilege to gain personal and professional access from her father-in-law, Warren Buffett. Now, she shares his investing philosophy, revealing informal discussions she had with this private genius. Buffettology is a detailed analysis of how Buffett commits capital to an investment only from a business perspective, the strategy that gives him the discipline to exploit the stock market's folly, and how he selects companies that will generate results.

    Story
    If you could sum up Buffettology in three words, what would they be?

    In college I learned all about Present Value and Asset Valuation but it seemed to simple to make me rich.
    doyyyyyy.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Buffettology?

    How simple the concept is of treating every investment like an investment instead of speculation.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    About why Warren drives a used crappy car... Smart guy!


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

    My cars not sexy but my bank account is!


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it -- after reading it I sand the Queen song -- "And bad mistakes -- I've made a few" when I thought of how much money I've wasted in my life.

    Story
    What did you love best about Holy Bible, Volume 21?

    2 Esdras has 7 visions that are in the style of Revelation but they're each fully explained --
    So it's kind of a "how to " read revelations for dummies kind of thing.
    Too cool -- not sure why protestant bibles decided to pull these books but am glad I finally read them after being a Christian for 20 years.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Angel Uriel - because he teaches how to interpret visions.


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I can listen at work.


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

    I was amazed at the visions and the interpretations.


    Any additional comments?

    All Christians should read the apocrypha whether or not you believe the pope is the head of the church. Don't let your bias get in the way of understanding God's word.

    This unabridged audio version brings to life an exciting combination of the seven basic elements that make up the print version. Musical accents subtly underscore the beginning of each chapter. The meditation and prayer elements, with six different readers, both men and women, including Archbishop Donald Wuerl, bring the text to life.

    Charles says: "Enjoyable and Enlightening Listening!"

    Where does United States Catholic Catechism for Adults rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Excellent!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The solid teaching of Christian fundamentals (and a few things that make you go whaaaaaaaa?????)


    What does Donald Wuerl bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Excellent way to go through a long book!


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

    The secret to victorious Christian living is getting the fundamentals write and for the most part that's the CCC.


    Any additional comments?

    Whether you're Catholic or not this book is a prerequisited for victorious Christian living. I've been in various protestant churches over the last 30 years and no two agree on almost anything. Whether you believe in the Primacy of Peter or not it's irresponible as Christian to not read this. Very solid teaching!

    What did you love best about Holy Bible, Volume 18?

    It was really informative and you can tell it's written by the same author as the "regular" bible.


    What other book might you compare Holy Bible, Volume 18 to and why?

    Regular bible.


    Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favorite?

    All of them.


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

    Protestants may have protested too much!


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this for all non Catholic Christians to read. All the early church Father's quote from this which is why I became curious to read it.

    Story
    (320)

    Millions of Christians have struggled with how to reconcile God's love and God's judgment: Has God created billions of people over thousands of years only to select a few to go to heaven and everyone else to suffer forever in hell? Is this acceptable to God? How is this "good news"? Author, pastor, and innovative teacher Rob Bell presents a deeply biblical vision for rediscovering a richer, grander, truer, and more spiritually satisfying way of understanding heaven, hell, God, Jesus, salvation, and repentance.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Love Wins to be better than the print version?

    yes - because the Author reads it. So if you work in a cubicle like I do -- it's hard to take a break to read a book. But with the audio version it's like having the author their reading the book to you.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It sheds light on the fact that literal reading of the bible with understanding the spiritual symbols leads to a pretty evilish view of god and that robs hope love and peace from our lives and the lives of others.

    It says that God Would have all Men to Be Saved.
    The it says that God Is Love.
    And finally Love Never Fails.

    Which means God will get what he wantes eventually.


    What does Rob Bell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A chance to listen during work.


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

    Adam is not more Powerful than Jesus -- In Adam all Sin but in Christ All are saved.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent work.
