    With more than 315,000 print copies sold, this is the story of the church for today’s listeners. Dr. Bruce Shelley makes church history come alive in this classic audiobook that has become not only the first choice of many laypeople and church leaders but the standard text in many college classrooms.

    Story

    This audio book goes for over 20 hours. I went through the whole thing and found it very informative and worthwhile.
    It is very educational and the presentation is excellent in that it does not get bogged down in detail and terminology.
    Some of the history is highly disturbing - but the book does a good job of giving an detached observers overview.

    I have no reservation in recommending this book.

  • Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus: A Devout Muslim Encounters Christianity

    Nabeel Qureshi describes his dramatic journey from Islam to Christianity, complete with friendships, investigations, and supernatural dreams along the way. Providing an intimate window into a loving Muslim home, Qureshi shares how he developed a passion for Islam before discovering, almost against his will, evidence that Jesus rose from the dead and claimed to be God. Unable to deny the arguments but not wanting to deny his family, Qureshi's inner turmoil will challenge Christians and Muslims alike.

    Story

    This is one of the best books I have listened to.
    I recommend it highly because:
    - it is brutally honest; it does not sugar coat the conversion experience
    He shares his journey "warts and all"
    - It is highly informative and educational; I learnt much about Islam
    - It is highly inspiring
    - It is well presented and enjoyable to listen to.

    The author is very articulate and communicates not only observable actions but also intent and feelings on his explorative journey. I was highly engaged listening to it. There were numerous times that I was teary eyed as I associated greately with Nabeel's conversion.

    I cannot recommend it enough.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Highly recommended because it provides convinging evidence which shows that the Warren Commission was a complete white wash. Oswald was a distraction to prevent the real killers from being sought. The evidence is very clear in this regard.


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

    the book is too long to go through in one sitting


    Any additional comments?

    The American people need to listen to this book and to rise up against the tyranical forces in power. This is disturbing but inaction will lead to tyrany and oppression.

    The government needs to come clean.

    While the "experts" want us to believe that all is well (or will be soon), nothing could be further from the truth. The worldwide financial crisis of 2008 and 2009 was just a sneak preview of what is to come. But for those who act quickly and correctly, there is still time to protect yourself, your family, and your business in the next global money meltdown.

    What did you love best about Aftershock?

    It was easy to understand and was mostly free from technical gibberish.
    It painted a clear and disturbing picture which will impact on all of us.
    I liked it especially in that they do not expect you to just accept their conclusion; they give you their reasoning and it is their well thought out reasing which is really valuable.
    It is mostly common sense - but it helps you to see through the BS that is fed to the public which prevents a public uproar.

    I found the book highly profitable. I was going to buy into the US property market; but after hearing Aftershock, I have abadoned that idea. It has also helped me see why my shares were doing poorly. The Macro picture is vital to micro investing.

    The chapter about economics and new theories etc was not as engaging as the first part of the book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Not applicable


    What three words best describe Christopher Kipiniak’s voice?

    The Narator was excellent


    Any additional comments?

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was interesting, engaging and also very heartwarming.

    It will be heard to swallow for some people but the book is honest and does not seem exagerated or contrived - for this I was very greatfull.

    It was also highly encouraging in that it produces hope and greater confidence that Jesus is real and waiting on the other side.

    I highly recommend this book

    From the streets of Iraq to the mountaintops of Afghanistan and to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden's compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - commonly known as SEAL Team Six - has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines. No Easy Day puts listeners alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the 24-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives.

    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

    The content and format and presentation of this book is excellent.
    It was very easy to listen too
    It had lots of usefull bits of highly interesting information about Kenedy etc.

    The ONLY signficant shortcoming is that he tows the official line of having Lee Harvey Oswald as the lone gunman. He does not explain any of the contradicting evidence such as Kenedies head lunging backwards when the bullet was meant to have come from there or other anomalies. Apart from this weakness I thoroughly enjoyed and learnt much by listening to it.

    In these classic essays, which began as talks on the BBC during World War II, Lewis creatively and simply explains the basic tenets of Christianity. Taken from the core section of Mere Christianity, this book provides an accessible way for people to discover these timeless truths. For those looking to remind themselves of what they hold true, or those looking for a snapshot of Christianity, this book is a wonderful introduction to the faith.

    This scientific writing, which was considered to be the groundwork of evolutionary biology, presented the theory that species developed over a line of originations through a method of natural selection. It imparted evidence that the variety of life resulted from a common descent via a branching model of evolution.

    I am highly interested in the Evolution topic and got this book to find the solid evidence behind Evolution. I as significantly disapointed.

    I found it really really boring, it was a strugle to go through but I persevered.
    The ""mountains of evidence" for Macro evolution that I was hoping to find was not there that I could figure out. I went through it a second time, but still I waded through tons of irrelevant detail but no real tangible evidence to prove the key Evolution assertion that our great ..... great grandfather was a self replicating molecule.

    This book has significant historical significance - but I will stuffed if I can see why.

    Frankly I am amazed how such a lame book has had the influence that it has.
