    Finding one's calling is not just about finding something we can do - it is about finding what we can't not do. "Let your life speak" is a time-honored Quaker admonition to live one's life as witness to the deepest truths one knows. But as Parker Palmer explains, those words can also mean "listen to your life, and let it tell you what your truth is."

    I've now listened three times. I've learned a remarkable lot about myself in relation to my job and who I am. This is a great book filled with deep insights. If you are dissatisfied about your job and perhaps complaining about the shortcomings of your employer, this book may open up a whole new dimension to what is going on in you. It is one of the most profound spiritual teachings that I have ever had the good fortune to experience. I'm journaling about what I've learned about myself. Palmer guides us to be honest about ourselves in order that we may begin to find freedom from our boogie-men. The narator is great too.

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des RĂªves, and it is only open at night.

    "Diappointing and Overrated"

    Story

    I was very excited about an imaginative story with an element of supernatural suspense. The book was a big dissappointment to me. It marginally held my interest until near the end when it seemed clear it had devolved into a pointless story of hyper-infatuation between the two main characters. I stopped listening right at the end just from sheer disinterest.

  • Letters from a Skeptic: A Son Wrestles With His Father's Questions About Christianity

    Greg Boyd longed for his father to know Christ. But as a former atheist turned believer, Greg understood Ed Boyd's reservations. So he offered a unique invitation: His father could write Greg with any questions on Christianity, and he would in turn deliver a thoughtful response. What began as an intimate correspondence between father and son soon captivated seekers everywhere.

    My next book will be "A Case for God" by Karen Armstrong. For people like myself, who believe in God, but do not believe that being a Christian is about having to believe a dozen things I can't believe before breakfast every the morning, "Letters from a Skeptic" was a complete turn-off. I do believe in God, and like the author's father, I have a great many questions. I thought the author came off as patronizing and presumptuous. Instead of addressing these very difficult questions in any thoughtful fashion, his arguments for Christianity centered primarily around the facuality of events in the Bible. At least he did concede that one does not have to take the "talking snake" as a literal event to be a Christian.
