    Lady Alexia Maccon, soulless, is at it again, only this time the trouble is not her fault. When a mad ghost threatens the queen, Alexia is on the case, following a trail that leads her deep into her husband's past. Top that off with a sister who has joined the suffragette movement (shocking!), Madame Lefoux's latest mechanical invention, and a plague of zombie porcupines and Alexia barely has time to remember she happens to be eight months pregnant. Can Alexia determine who is trying to kill Queen Victoria?

    Father Thomas Keating is the founder of the Centering Prayer movement, based on the retreat into the "inner room" mentioned by Jesus in Matthew 6:6, where the individual is able to meet God. From the book Manifesting God, Father Keating explores three parables - the Parable of the Great Banquet, the Parable of the Leaven, and the Parable of the Publican and the Pharisee - and their relation to contemplative prayer.

    Story

    This is an exerpt from Open Mind, Open Heart which for some reason you cannot buy on audible. It even refers sections of that book, "appendix B, etc." This is not really about parables but about centering prayer. You are better off going to the contemplative outreach website, spending three more dollars and downloading the entire audiobook. I was very disappointed.

    Many Christians feel guilty when they think of reading the Bible. Though they want to love reading Scripture, they rarely have time for more than a few verses on the run. But the Bible is not meant to be a burden. It is the story of God’s passionate love for His children. It is also not a book of mystical incantations. It is a best friend offering counsel and companionship. And it is not a distant relic, but something very near. Near enough, in fact, to be every reader’s story. So how do Christians delight in this story?

    Story

    This book is part motivation and part autobiography.
    It is written and read by Brian Hardin who does an excellent job. It tell of how reading the Bible every day will benefit you and about his own spiritual journey.
    He is the founder of The Daily Audiobible. If you have ever tried to read the Bible in a year and failed, definately good motivation to do so again.

    From the best-selling author of Kafka on the Shore comes this rich and revelatory memoir about writing and running and the integral impact both have made on his life. Equal parts training log, travelogue, and reminiscence, this revealing memoir covers Murakami's four-month preparation for the 2005 New York City Marathon. Settings range from Tokyo, where he once shared the course with an Olympian, to the Charles River in Boston, among young women who outpace him.

    More than a Bible you listen to, the King James Version Audio Bible is an experience that helps you enter into God’s Word… so God’s Word can enter into you.

    The book of Ezekiel from the poetic, classic King James Version of the Bible has been digitally produced to bring the Bible’s stories to life. Performed by film, stage and television actor Maxwell Caulfield, this vivid recording will help you hear God’s word again… for the first time.
