  • Destiny Disrupted: A History of the World through Islamic Eyes

    • UNABRIDGED (17 hrs and 31 mins)
    • By Tamim Ansary
    • Narrated By Tamim Ansary

    Until about 1800, the West and the Islamic realm were like two adjacent, parallel universes, each assuming itself to be the center of the world while ignoring the other. As Europeans colonized the globe, the two world histories intersected and the Western narrative drove the other one under. The West hardly noticed, but the Islamic world found the encounter profoundly disrupting.

    Blake says: "Explains the clash between Islam and the West"
    "Thought Provoking"

    Although I have not had the opportunity to check all the facts in this book (and never will for that matter), anything I researched checked out.

    Because of the subject matter it is "pro" Islam, and "pro" Mohammed.But not overbearing at all.
    Definitely gives new meaning to "There but for fortune go you and I."

    Enjoyed the style MOST of the time. Occasionally, especially toward the end, the amount of detail was overwhelming. Narration was good.

    Would definitely recommend this book to anyone that wants to see the world through anothers eyes. And maybe, most importantly, to those who don't.

  • The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr.

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 55 mins)
    • By (edited by Clayborne Carson)
    • Narrated By Levar Burton

    He was a husband, a father, a preacher - and the preeminent leader of a movement that continues to transform America and the world. Now, in a special program commissioned and authorized by his family, here is the life and times of Martin Luther King, Jr. Featuring King's I Have a Dream Speech.

    John-Mark Stensvaag says: "A Fascinating Slice of History"
    "Everyone should listen to this"

    This was an EXCELLENT book/recording. The way the reading is interspersed with Dr. King's speeches is excellent. The choice of the narrator was spot on. Some of the sound quality of the speeches is low but that is simply unavoidable due to the age and circumstances they were recorded in.

    I was very impressed at how Dr. King's faith touched every area of his short life.

    Just for everyone's information, I am not African American. But I think that every white person should listen to this to and learn the reality of discrimination that is not entirely removed from society today. (Not only against African Americans but many others too.)

    I think every African American should listen to this to get a true picture of who Dr. King was in his own words and hear his depth of faith.
    Anyone of would benefit from listening to this recording.

  • Sin Boldly: A Field Guide for Grace

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 14 mins)
    • By Cathleen Falsani
    • Narrated By Cathleen Falsani
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Justice is getting what you deserve. Mercy is not getting what you deserve. And grace is getting what you absolutely don't deserve.

    Eric says: "Thought provoking"
    "Thought provoking"

    Although I don't completely agree with everything in this book, it is very thought provoking. Some people might be surprised by her mild profanity sprinkled through out, but I thought it was authentic and not gratuitous in anyway.

    I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind being challenged to think outside their box. It definitely isn't for the faint of heart, extremely conservative or those who think they already know all the answers.

  • The Shack

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 31 mins)
    • By Wm. Paul Young
    • Narrated By Roger Mueller

    Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.

    Renato says: "much more than I expected"

    Although I had heard LOTS of people running this book down for various reasons, I thought it was excellent. The authors choice of characters for Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are original and extremely thought provoking.

    His handling of good and evil, free will etc were also excellent. I would recommend it to any one.

    The recording is done well and is easy to listen to.
