Sam Jackson is an amazing performer. I love his work. However, sadly, he is largely popular for vulgarity in his career.
This story is so funny; but the extreme profanity, in particular taking God's name in vain, robs the listener of what would otherwise be a delightful experience.
Superior! Knife-blade suspense that will keep you up late & keep you turning pages. A classic Dekker mind-bending thrill ride that plunges the reader into a rush of adrenaline again & again. Chilling mystery, soul-searching drama, endearing romance, & a host of memorable characters will drag your mind into a deep, dark depth that could only come from the mind of Ted Dekker.
Enjoy the ride.
I would like to have read this book instead of listening to it. I usually love Dekker's thrill rides. The narration seems rushed, repetitive (almost sing-song at times), unengaged—a hindrance to classic Dekker suspense.
If you’re a Dekker fan, this 1 is closer to the juvenile series style, similar to the “Lost Books” saga; & as always, connected to the larger adventure. ;) The spiritual twist becomes clearer as the story progresses, so just enjoy the ride. It provides a good message for youth & adults, especially for those who are not happy with “self”.
Thanks again, Ted.
Sweeney narrates his own historical plunge into the life & times of Peter of Moroni. His passion for the details is obvious in his considerable detective work to examine the history from all angles, providing a richly woven tribute to this mysterious man of God.
Further exploration of key persons in government & Church of the time--including Francis of Assisi, the "pillar saints" & hermits--create a fuller bounty of understanding for the life & choices of the brief but godly Pope.
An excellent read/listen that will keep your attention throughout.
I really wanted to love this book. It contains so much of Rohr's liberal opinions & so little of Francis's teachings, I simply could not. From exampling talking down to a less educated congregation to claiming someone living in a state the Bible declares sin is holy, it is extremely awkward to digest this book through the lens of God's Holy Word. As a Christian & clergy, I agree there is much we need to let go. The truth of Scripture, however, is certainly not on that list, & never shall be for those who love Christ & keep His Word.
A beautiful, artistic, charming, at times disturbing tale richly woven in Anne's return to faith in Christ. This will stir your spirit!
Dark, dreamy, the stuff nightmares are made of.
Lovecraft is classic horror with rich American heritage flavor. Visit a town so far off any normal path the natives are already frightening, even before darker visitors move it. And chase the dreams of a list of madmen to discover a secret so dark it can't be mentioned.
A host of modern-day horror talents tip their hats to this brilliant original master.

Think you're so special leagues of angels & demons are fighting over you? You're right!
This spiritual warfare thriller quickly became a classic in its own right & soared to the hights in Christian fiction. Peretti is a great storyteller. He weaves suspense into a catching plot that makes you want to chase ahead a few chapters. But don't--you'll ruin the surprises.
Sondericker's narration hits the nail on the head with some characters as I had imagined them in past readings. He seems to enjoy the story & really get into it; all the more enjoyable for the listener.
Don't stop here! There's an exciting sequel to follow & a number of Peretti works to keep the pages turning...or the audio running.
