    Now, in his most daring act yet, E. Lynn Harris writes the memoir of his life from his childhood in Arkansas as a closeted gay boy through his struggling days as a self-published author to his rise to New York Times best seller status.

    Mr. harris has captured the struggling frailty of the human soul. This book has enlightened and inspired me to follow my dreams and not take 'no' for an answer. Richard Allens' narration is supurb. The book is captivating. I fought between wanting to finish the book in one night and making it last as long as possible.
    Great work Mr. Harris

    Robert McCammon series is fantastic. When you first read Sings The Night Bird, the only thing you hope for is the story to continue, and it does.

    Would you listen to Speaks the Nightbird again? Why?

    This story is one I tell others often. I speak so much about this book, I will have to listen to it again.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    There wasn't a dull moment.


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

    Flesh and Blood

  • Erasing Hell: What God Said about Eternity, and the Things We Made Up

    How could a loving God send people to Hell? Will people have a chance after they die to believe in Jesus and go to heaven? With a humble respect for God’s Word, Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle address the deepest questions you have about eternal destiny. They’ve asked the same questions. Like you, sometimes they just don’t want to believe in Hell. But, as they write, “We cannot afford to be wrong on this issue.” This is not a book about who is saying what. It’s a book about what God says.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Erasing Hell to be better than the print version?

    Rob Bell does it again with Erasing Hell. Though he never actually states whether he believes there is or is not a hell, Rob puts forth a great deal of information regarding the subject. Is hell an actual place or is it merely a tool used by religion to control the masses?

    Taking his trademark intellectual approach to understanding Christianity, Timothy Keller uncovers the essential message of Jesus, locked inside his most familiar parable. Within that parable Jesus reveals God's prodigal grace toward both the irreligious and the moralistic. This book will challenge both the devout and skeptics to see Christianity in a whole new way.

    Would you listen to The Prodigal God again? Why?

    I have listened to this book three times already and will listen to it again. The Prodigal God puts everyone on the same level when it comes to God and salvation. Being very good or being very bad has no bearing on a God who is prodigal.

    Mark's Gospel is believed to be the earliest written account of the life of Jesus. As Peter preached the gospel, Mark traveled with him and wrote down Peter's testimony. So what we have in the Gospel according to St. Mark are the eyewitness accounts of the Savior as experienced by Peter, Jesus' first disciple.

    IF you have never heard Max McLean narrate the Bible, then youa re missing out. With a wonderful voice and a command for the english language, Max's velvety voice carries you back in time.

    In a memoir by turns moving, tragic, and hilarious, Jerry Lewis recounts with crystal clarity every step of a 50-year friendship, from the springtime, 1945 afternoon when the two vibrant young performers destined to conquer the world together met on Broadway and 54th Street, to their tragic final encounter in the 1990s, when Lewis and his wife ran into Dean Martin, a broken and haunted old man.

    I never knew the depth and compassion of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis's relationship until now. A beautiful book that, quite honestly made me cry at the end. A must read!

    This unprecedented audio project is as thought-provoking as it is mesmeric. The Night Listener is a meditation on the power of voices and the faith we place in them, and an extraordinary audio experience from an American literary icon.

    What a wonderful book. Armistead's writting keeps you on the edge. The way he establishes characters and place keeps you in the action. This book is filled with clever quotes and classic one-liners. A must read.
