    Would you listen to Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences again? Why?

    No.
    This book needs a better narrator.
    One who is committed to the material.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Many, many amazing first hand accounts of near death experiences from all walks of life, all ages, all religions and from across many cultures.
    The author relies on statistics and a scientific approach to prove his points...but the stories from the people who have had the experience don't need statistics for proof. The proof is in the stories themselves.
    If you are a skeptic...? Good luck with this one.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bob Dunsworth?

    Someone who is committed to relaying the author's message: Evidence of the Afterlife

    Bob Dunsworth has an excellent voice, but he did a poor job on this book.

    Too often, Bob's excellent voice is just reading words on a page ... with little regard or apparent interest in their meaning and significance.

    He reads past periods and at times he walks all over the content.

    It was like having an agnostic reading the Bible ...or any other spiritual message.

    Stop briefly for a period, Bob. Take a breath beyween sentences ... it is not a race to the finish of the book.

    Understand & believe in what you read ... or don't read it.

    FINALLY: Please look up the pronunciation of word "anesthesia" ... a much used and important word in the book ... which was mispronounced hundreds of times.
    What you will find: [an-uhs-thee-zhuh] not [an-uhs-thay-zhuh].


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Any additional comments?

    Excellent content. Amazing research. Well founded conclusions.

  • Eager to Love: The Alternative Way of Francis of Assisi

    Francis of Assisi is one of the most beloved of all saints. Both traditional and entirely revolutionary, he was a paradox. He was at once down-to-earth and reaching toward heaven, grounded in the rich history of the Church while moving toward a new understanding of the world beyond. Franciscan Father Richard Rohr helps us look beyond the birdbath image of the saint to remind us of the long tradition founded on Francis' revolutionary, radical, and life-changing embrace of the teachings of Jesus.

    Story

    Rohr has helped me understand what it is to be a Christian mystic ... and he has helped me appreciate that is what I am.
    St Francis is not for the faint of heart ... But then neither was Christ on the cross and the empty tomb.
    This is an outstanding, unvarnished glimpse of both.
    If you ever get to Assisi, be sure to look for the gift that the Sultan presented to Francis ... and be inspired by their meeting as described in this book.
    I usually prefer Rohr reading his own work, but this performance is excellent.
