    When world-class biblical scholar Bart Ehrman first began to study the texts of the Bible in their original languages he was startled to discover the multitude of mistakes and intentional alterations that had been made by earlier translators. In Misquoting Jesus, Ehrman tells the story behind the mistakes and changes that ancient scribes made to the New Testament and shows the great impact they had upon the Bible we use today.

    Story

    The reading is intonation is on point. There were parts of this book that sort of made me cringe as a Christian, but kept me listening so that I could understand how the transcribing of what is considered the original texts aren't that at all. What we have now as our Bible is the best that could be written with the limited material that was available and missing the original documents (first writing) for many of the books. It is easier to see why there are so many different interpretations and how this came to be.

    I want to listen again and take notes and talk with my pastor. Overall it helped to reaffirm my beliefs in Jesus as my savior and explain some of the discrepancies in the Bible that I had been struggling with. Highly recommend if you seek to further your knowledge of the history of the Bible along with your spirituality.

    Your toddler throws a tantrum in the middle of a store. Your preschooler refuses to get dressed. Your fifth-grader sulks on the bench instead of playing on the field. Do children conspire to make their parents’ lives endlessly challenging? No - it’s just their developing brain calling the shots! In this pioneering, practical book, Daniel J. Siegel, neuropsychiatrist and author of the best-selling Mindsight, and parenting expert Tina Payne Bryson demystify the meltdowns and aggravation, explaining the new science of how a child’s brain is wired and how it matures.

    Every one of us will experience suffering. Many of us are experiencing it now. As we have seen in recent years, evil is real in our world, present and close to each one of us. In such difficult times, suffering and evil beg questions about God--Why would an all-good and all-powerful God create a world full of evil and suffering? And then, how can there be a God if suffering and evil exist?

    Story

    If you are truly seeking to understand God's plan beyond the, "It is good for you" and "Because" explanation, then don't read this book. It starts out with trying to give examples through the Bible of suffering and possible explanations of why, then just says the same thing over and over. As a reader, the author tries to inflect his passion of the subject into the matter, but comes off as paternalistic. It is almost the argument that because he sees the answer so perfectly, it must be obvious to everyone else as well; and if you truly have faith, understanding that your answer to the question of "why am I (or ____) going through this?" may not be received until your death, you should be satisfied. I wasn't.

    Story

    This book of the series was very disappointing. Most of this book is very contrived and predictable, getting out of the basic storyline of love, sex, and enchantment to trying and make it an adventure novel. The end of the book just seemed to be that the author was required to submit "X" number of pages and had to fill in, so wrote pieces of Christian's inner dialogue.

    The guru to the gurus at last shares his knowledge with the rest of us. Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman's seminal studies in behavioral psychology, behavioral economics, and happiness studies have influenced numerous other authors, including Steven Pinker and Malcolm Gladwell. In Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman at last offers his own, first book for the general public. It is a lucid and enlightening summary of his life's work. It will change the way you think about thinking. Two systems drive the way we think and make choices, Kahneman explains....

  • A&P: A Short Story from The John Updike Audio Collection

    Updike's extraordinarily evocative stories depict the generation born in a small-town America during the Depression and growing up in a world where the old sexual morality was turned around and material comforts were easily had. Yet, as these stories reflect so accurately, life was still unsettling, and Updike chronicles telling moments both joyful and painful. The texts are taken from his recent omnibus, The Early Stories, 1953-1975.

    While the writing allows the reader to visualize the scenes the author writes, the overall story is boring and really has no satisfactory ending.
