  • Martin Luther: In His Own Words

    Most Christians know the name Martin Luther. Less familiar, however, are his words. This audio compilation of many of Luther's most important writings serves as an excellent introduction for those new to Luther. It also provides a fresh medium for people familiar with his writing.

    Overall

    This book is one of the best books I've listened to thus far. The Narrator really has a feel for the text, putting appropriate inflection were it helps a slightly dry text to flow and keep ones interest in a book that could prove to be boring to a reader that doesn't love the works of Luther as I do.
    Well worth the two plus hours to listen to.

    In a voice both haunting and startlingly immediate, Nitta Sayuri describes her life as a geisha. Taken from her home at the age of nine, she is sold into slavery to a renowned geisha house. Witness her transformation as you enter a world where appearances are paramount, virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder, women beguile powerful men, and love is scorned as illusion.

    Overall

    This is one of my favorite Movies. And the book is the best. It really gets you deeper into the story. You really feel like it is a true story, and want to go meet the Geisha, and go see the places she has been.
    The Narrator is Really good. She has a great command of her voice and makes you see the story unfolding, you lose yourself in the story not in the Narrator.

    World-renowned scholar and preacher John R. Stott embarks on a compelling course of study that first defends the fundamental claims of Christianity and then defines the proper outworking of these basic beliefs in the daily lives of believers. Here is a sound, sensible guide for those who are seeking an intellectually satisfying presentation of the Christian faith.

    Overall

    Very Great book. The Author did a masterful job on this one. This book should be on every ones reading list who really want to be strong, deep, heartfelt Christians. I plan to listen to it over and over.
    This is one of the best narrators ever. He has a great control of his voice and can make you really feel like you are in the middle of the book, not just listening to it.

    Sinners in the Hands of Angry God is considered the most famous sermon ever preached in American history. Jonathan Edwards delivered this message on July 8, 1741, in Enfield, Connecticut. Many who heard it trembled and cried out for mercy. Others fainted. Five hundred people were converted that day.

    NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART OR FAITH. This book is very good. Very strong and forceful. There is even a warning in the beginning that it may offend some who are easily offended by in your face preaching.
    Very good Narrator and message.

    A Roman soldier, Marcellus, wins Christ's robe as a gambling prize. He then sets forth on a quest to find the truth about the Nazarene's robe, a quest that reaches to the very roots and heart of Christianity. Set against the vividly drawn background of ancient Rome, this is a timeless story of adventure, faith, and romance, a tale of spiritual longing and ultimate redemption.

    Jerrilynn says: "Simply the Best"
    "Christian Book Nut"
    Overall

    This is a wonderful story. If you ever wondered what happened to the Roman soldiers after they Crucified Jesus, This story will give you something to think about. And the Narrator was great, his change in voice for the different charactors and his accent was very compelling.
    I would very much recommend this book to anyone who wants to imagine what the Roman Soldiers went through that Crucified Jesus. Or just wants a really exciting listen.

  • Oswald Chambers: Abandoned to God: The Life Story of the Author of "My Utmost for His Highest"

    Oswald Chambers was a man for all time. His was the mind of Christ and so his words are compelling because they reflect the thoughts of our Savior. I am not the first to say that no book outside the Bible has influenced me as much as My Utmost for His Highest. In David McCasland's book we have, at last, the story of this man's life and how, having honored God, God is now honoring him with the only fame that really matters.

    This is one of the best books I have listened to so far.
    Not only is the story of this great Christian one to capture the heart and mind but it is very well done and the narrator Simon Vance is wonderful to listen to. I only wish he did more books.
    Great story with a great narrator. I would surly recommend this to anyone who wants to know more and deepen there knowledge and Faith.

    Hear 10 of John Wesley's sermons. The founder of Methodism was born on June 17, 1703, to a dissident rector of the Church of England. He was educated at Christ Church at Oxford and was determined to become a priest.

    Overall

    This book is very deep in its Theological info and very good and informative but this Narrator is not the right person for the job. He has a strong voice and a good variety of intonations but he is trying too hard to use all his talents of speech and not enough attention to the content of the book. He makes it very hard to catch all the very deep detail of the work with his changing of voice and volume. Also there is some sort of background noise like people talking and outside noises, which are very irritating.

    This is the enthralling account of a Christian's epic journey. With a burden on his back, Christian reads a book that tells him that the city in which he and his family dwell will be set ablaze. Christian flees from the City of Destruction and journeys through the Slough of Despond, the Interpreter's House, the House Beautiful, the Valley of Humiliation, the Valley of the Shadow of Death, Vanity Fair, Doubting Castle, and the Delectable Mountains, and finally reaches the Celestial City.

    Overall

    This is truly an interesting book, nothing like I expected. It is well narrated and easy to listen to, and understand. The Narrator has the perfect voice for this book. I also own the book but have never had the chance to read it. so I sometimes read along with the narration but it was more interesting to just listen. This book is similar to "Hinds feet in high places," Which I also really liked in writing and will soon be downloading to listen to.
    Great book I will be listening to it again, and again.
