    You are invited to witness the enormous power of the early church when it connected to the ultimate power. Then you are invited to request and experience it for yourself. You will again witness the enormous power of the early church as you listen to The Acts of the Apostles, a remarkable commentary on the book of Acts. Then you are invited to request it and experience it for yourself and your church.

    Judgmental, historically inaccurate and bigoted piece. Even the reader is preaching to you. There are many better interpretations of history than this one.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    Overall

    Despite having a decent story going this book just went on and on. It seemed to have some kind of mild S&M fascination or women as property thing going on. That made me uncomfortable as I listened. If you have a very long drive this might be for you. If you are going to do the moving around time romance thing, the Time Traveler's Wife is a much better listen.

    A tour-de-force novel set in ancient Japan filled with passion, fantasy, and feuding warlords. The first volume in the highly anticipated Tales of the Otori trilogy.

    Jody R. Nathan says: "Wonderful epic story"
    "Painful reading"
    Overall

    I tried to endure by listening while I was working. I just can't handle the readers voice. This is the second book I have purchased with this reader. The first was Heaven's Prisoners. Regardless of the book I will make it a point to skip this reader. People on 'ludes should not read books to people not on 'ludes.

    Police detective Harry Lyon is a perfectionist who likes his files error-free. To Harry's dismay, his partner, Connie Gulliver, embraces chaos, urging him to "get in touch with the rhythms of destruction." But when Harry and Connie have to kill in the line of duty, the ensuing surreal nightmare makes Connie's cynical world view seem all too accurate.

    Dan's Gal Sal says: "My first Koontz, but not my last!"
    "Great narration. suspend disbelief and enjoy"
    Overall

    For me it was the dog. I loved Dean Koontz version of what goes through a dogs mind and the excellent way the reader read it. The story is classic Koontz and as always a little unsettling. Many of the themes are similar to The Red Dragon but I enjoyed the characters and was not tempted to fast forward my iPod.

    When farmers cutting turf in an Irish peat bog make a grisly discovery, the perfectly intact body of a young woman with long red hair, archaeologist Cormac O'Callaghan and pathologist Nora Gavin are thrown together by their shared scientific interest in human remains. Because of the preservative effect of the bog, it is difficult to tell whether the body has lain there for two decades, two centuries, or two millennia.

    Sara says: "Archeology, Folklore and Mystery in Ireland"
    "An entertaining read"
    Overall

    This was a nice listen. I build custom cars and listen while I work. I might have liked a little more character development but it made it easy to follow the story while you are working or driving. The readers voice was really great. She shifted between characters with great expertise.

  • Beyond Belief: The Secret Gospel of Thomas

    Story

    Spurred by personal tragedy, Elaine Pagels turns to a consideration of the Gnostic Gospels, in particular, the Gospel of Thomas. As opposed to the Gospel of John, which asserted that Jesus was an eternally existing aspect of God who came to earth to save humankind, the "secret" Gospel of Thomas agrees that Jesus was in some sense divine, but says that a streak of divinity can be found in all of us.

    Buford says: "Gospel of Thomas is somewhat a misnomer"
    "Questions, Dogma, no hypothesis"
    Overall

    I was very disappointed in the content. The author ask questions and then moves on to another subject and asks some more questions. It seems like her own Dogma blocks her ability to suggest reasonable, thoughtful answers to her own questions. Personally, I wouldn't waste your time. If you are a seeker this will not make you any kind of finder. I loved the reader's voice though.

    This is the incredible story of the world's greatest conqueror, a man who single handedly changed the course of history...and who was worshipped as a god. There have been many attempts in the 2,300 years since Alexander's death to tell the epic story of this enigmatic soldier. His deeds read like the stuff of legends. Of all the chroniclers of Alexander, and there have been many famous ones, including Plutarch and Ptolemy, none have given us a clearer and truer account than the one by Arrian.

    Theresa says: "A Superb Chronicle of Alexander"
    "As near to a battle blow by blow as you can get"
    Overall

    I was very interested in Alexander and chose this book. You have to take the good with the bad to absorb this book. To get to the really great strategy that Alexander used in battle you must listen to all the detail of how he managed each of his different regiments of troops. The good stuff lies between this information. The politician, the good and honorable man who let success take advantage of him, and the brillant tactician. If you are bored easily by repetitive details this one is not for you. It is arguably one of the most accurate versions of the life of Alexander. Keep in mind too that it is a very old text written when books portrayed history with little concern for entertainment value.
