  • The Scandalous Gospel of Jesus: What's So Good About the Good News?

    "What did Jesus preach?" asks this esteemed Harvard pastor, who believes that excessive focus on the Bible and doctrines about Jesus have led the Christian church astray. To recover the transformative power of the gospel, "the good news", Gomes says we must go beyond the Bible and rediscover how to live out Jesus' original revolutionary message of hope.

    Stuart says: "A Thoughtful and Important Book"
    "Nonsensical"
    Overall

    This is a long political diatribe about how the author thinks Jesus would want people to act. He picks out a very few scriptures and interprets them to fit his beliefs. The "gospel" he refers to is social justice. Save your money and give it to the poor instead of buying this audiobook.

  • Spread This Wealth

    This is not your average, dull, academic treatise on government! Spread This Wealth is an easy-to-understand, common sense explanation of what is happening to American liberty and how average citizens can defend it. The author is an ordinary citizen with an extraordinary perspective on the wisdom of the Founding Fathers and the passion of the millions of men and women who have fought to gain and maintain the freedom all Americans enjoy.

    Overall

    Just in time for the Revolution of 2010-12, this book lays out the moral and philosophical case for Americans' freedoms. It simplifies some complex ideas and explains clearly why we need to replace the wasteful, out-of-touch representatives who have perpetuated big government and doomed future generations to debt slavery. Mr. Duke gives a simple, workable, five-step plan that will be implemented if we ever get serious about being free again! This book also gives the most compelling synopsis of the Fair Tax available today. The narrator does a superb job of presenting the subject matter, as in other books of similar topics. A great listen that every American should hear, or read in paperback.

    Erik Weihenmayer was born with retinoscheses, a degenerative eye disorder that would leave him blind by the age of 13. But Erik was determined to rise above this devastating disability and lead a fulfilling and exciting life. In this poignant and inspiring memoir, he shares his struggle to push past the limits imposed on him by his visual impairment - and by a seeing world.

    I listened to this book three times because it is so rich with descriptions of the author's travels and his tenacity in overcoming a "handicap." He shows us all that our only handicap is our own limited thinking!

    Is an intimate experience of the Divine meant only for saints and mystics? Ask Tessa Bielecki, a former Carmelite nun and abbess of a monastic community, and the answer is an emphatic no. "Mystical experience is as natural to us as breathing," she explains. "It erupts spontaneously and graciously when we live on the spot and savor the real." Wild at Heart presents her call to you, the ordinary seeker, to have a loving realization of God, which is your divine birthright.

    Vincent Brown says: "A Perfect Fit"
    "Outstanding, simple, clear"
    Overall

    This is one of the best books on spirituality, mysticism, and true Christianity that has been written in years! I highly recommend it as being well researched and well read. Destined to be a classic in spiritual literature!

  • The Third Jesus: The Christ We Cannot Ignore

    Who is Jesus Christ? In The Third Jesus, best-selling author and spiritual leader Deepak Chopra provides an answer to this question that is both a challenge to current systems of belief and a fresh perspective on what Jesus can teach us all, regardless of our religious background. There is not one Jesus, Chopra explains, but three.

    Brian says: "Jesus deserves respect! Major shift"
    "Disappointed"
    Overall

    If you read New Age books in the 1980's you may find The Third Jesus sloggingly redundant.

    The publication of Power vs. Force by Sir David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., reveals to the general public secret information heretofore only shared by the author with certain Nobelists and world leaders. Analyzing the basic nature of human thought and consciousness itself, the author makes available to everyone the key to penetrating the last barrier to the advancement of civilization and science and resolving the most crucial of all human dilemmas.

    Paul says: "Great book, good audiobook...."
    "mumbo jumbo"
    Overall

    This is mostly new age mumbo jumbo that poses as science. Very interesting and well presented, but not well supported by fact or logic. However, it will stir up the brain cells.
