  • Sanctuary of the Soul: Journey into Meditative Prayer

    • UNABRIDGED (3 hrs and 27 mins)
    • By Richard J. Foster
    • Narrated By David Cochran Heath
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    At the very heart of God is the passionate disposition to be in loving fellowship with you. From the human side of this equation it is meditative prayer that ushers us into this divine-human fellowship. Richard Foster, best-selling author and founder of Renovare, writes these words as one who has experienced what they describe. And in this new book he will beautifully guide you in this transformational way, that you might come to know deeper fellowship with God.

    Felix says: "Good introduction to contemplative prayer"
    "Closer to God"

  • God’s Secretaries: The Making of the King James Bible

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 39 mins)
    • By Adam Nicolson
    • Narrated By Clive Chafer
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    It is the greatest work of English prose ever written, and it is no coincidence that the translation was made at the moment “Englishness” and the English language had come into its first passionate maturity. Boisterous, elegant, subtle, majestic, finely nuanced, sonorous, and musical, the English of Jacobean England has a more encompassing idea of its own reach and scope than any before or since. It is a form of the language that drips with potency and sensitivity. The age, with all its conflicts, explains the book.

    Dan says: "Monotonous"
    "Very good history of the King James Bible"

    It is a tedious read but very informative.
    I have a new found respect for King James & the translators.

    I must admit I have not finished the book yet but I do enjoy listening to it. It is a great study of world history at the time.

  • The Pilgrim's Progress

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 12 mins)
    • By John Bunyan
    • Narrated By Max McLean

    Few books besides the Bible have been translated, printed, and read as often as The Pilgrim's Progress. John Bunyan's classic allegory of Christian, the Pilgrim, on his perilous journey to the Celestial City has touched hearts and minds for more than 300 years, and still the demand continues.

    William says: "A well read update of the classic"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Pilgrim's Progress to be better than the print version?

    I would not say better because there is nothing like reading for yourself something about how your mind and eyes work together changes the imagery of what your are reading. But I do love Max McClean's dramatic reading skills and the fact that he is English or Scottish makes it even more realistic he accent is excellent.
    Although I have read this book many times I never get tired of reading it I get something new out of it as I continue my Christian Journey it is truly a book that keeps on giving.

    What other book might you compare The Pilgrim's Progress to and why?

    The King James Bible because it is written in the same type of english Jacobian or old english style and both books always have a fresh new thought to consider they never get old they are both truly ageless because human nature never changes for the better it only gets worse. Technology changes we learn more things about more things we are still a depraved and wicked race of people in need of a Savior.

    What about Max McLean’s performance did you like?

    I like the inflection of his voice and the dramatic quality of how he characterizes each player in the books he reads. It is almost like a movie in your mind he creates the characters so well you can almost see the action as he reads. I listen to him every morning reading me the KJV Listener's Bible and I have gone through the Bible with Max 2 times now starting on my 3rd time. Every month I go through the Psalms and Proverbs with Max he is the best narrator for old english around in my humble opinion.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes when Christian was in the slough of despond. I have been there myself many times. It helps me to read Pilgrim's Progress it encourages me on my own journey.

    Any additional comments?

    People rave about Lord of the Rings and other allegories but for me John Bunyan was the Master of the Allegories. Because he based all his stories on his own life and Biblical truths in the Bible. Which C.S. Lewis tries to do but maybe it's because I am old school and was raised in a King James type church that I prefer John Bunyan over C.S. Lewis.

  • A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23

    • UNABRIDGED (3 hrs and 43 mins)
    • By W. Phillip Keller
    • Narrated By Maurice England

    Phillip Keller's unique perspective on the beloved psalm is a genuine classic about how a real-life shepherd views the love Jesus the Shepherd has for his flock. His inspirational insights come from his firsthand experiences in developing and managing sheep ranches.

    Amazon Customer says: "This is an incredible illumination"
    "Narator voice spoiled the book"
    Would you try another book from W. Phillip Keller and/or Maurice England?

    Phillip Keller a "yes" but Maurice England a big "NO" from me!

    How could the performance have been better?

    David Cochran Heath would have been a been narator. Maurice England has a gravelly voice and I couldn't get past the first chapter
