  • Killing Jesus: A History

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 22 mins)
    • By Bill O'Reilly, Martin Dugard
    • Narrated By Bill O'Reilly
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Millions of people have thrilled to best-selling authors Bill O'Reilly and historian Martin Dugard's Killing Kennedy and Killing Lincoln, works of nonfiction that have changed the way we view history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor details the events leading up to the murder of the most influential man in history: Jesus of Nazareth. Nearly 2,000 years after this beloved and controversial young revolutionary was brutally killed by Roman soldiers, more than 2.2 billion human beings attempt to follow his teachings and believe he is God.

    christina m. groetzinger says: "Interesting Listening Experience"
    "The Jesus story in context"
    Where does Killing Jesus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    If you are searching for a different take on the Jesus story... You won't find it here. (While NOT a religious book, the book follows the gospels.) Where it excels, is placing the events in historical and cultural context. By freeing the main character (Jesus) from the restraints of strictly gospel and putting him amid the political chaos, cultures, and religious traditions of the time; the story of Jesus simultaneously become more complex and yet amazingly simple. Most Christians are aware of the life and death of Jesus. Most are NOT aware of the politics and religious traditions of the day that led to the series of events chronicled in the gospels.A book aimed at the history buff more than the religious zealot.

    What other book might you compare Killing Jesus to and why?

    Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy
    Why: We know how it ends.

    Which character – as performed by Bill O'Reilly – was your favorite?

    It was more about how all the characters work together to form the context of the death of Jesus that is most compelling.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


    Any additional comments?

    Don't get the book to be inspired to believe nor to find some amazing nugget of faith. Get the book to better understand historical context; Jewish law, tradition, and historical politics; and how those things worked together to ensure the sacrifice.

  • The Islamic Antichrist: The Shocking Truth about the Real Nature of the Beast

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 29 mins)
    • By Joel Richardson
    • Narrated By Richard Powers
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    The Bible predicts that in the last days a charismatic leader will establish a global following in the name of peace. The Qur’an also predicts that a man will rise up to lead the nations, pledging to usher in an era of peace. The man in the Qur’an is called the Mahdi, or Islam’s savior. However, the man in the Bible is the Antichrist. Joel Richardson’s stunning research and analysis suggest that the Mahdi and the Antichrist are actually one and the same.

    "NOT a relaxing read"

    A thought provoking book that lines things up fairly easily. It is NOT a book to read for relaxation, but rather for study. I found myself double checking scripture and taking notes. A good study book.

  • House

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 38 mins)
    • By Frank Peretti, Ted Dekker
    • Narrated By Kevin King
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Two couples vacationing in Alabama are pursued by a maniac killer who lures them to a vacant house which won't let them leave. The "house" mirrors their own heart and souls and they must defeat the evil within.

    Chirs Mammenga says: "The "House" that Peretti/Dekker Built"
    "I expected A LOT more"
    What would have made House better?

    Character development. The story went around in circles so much I got dizzy.

    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Thoene book

    Did Kevin King do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Not bad

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?


    Any additional comments?

    These are two of my very favorite writers..I expected something really great. Both of these novelists are excellent...but this book left me frustrated and wishing it was over. I was so very disappointed. Not close to either's best work.

  • The Christ Clone Trilogy - Book One: In His Image (Revised & Expanded)

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 21 mins)
    • By James BeauSeigneur
    • Narrated By Kevin O'Brien

    Two nuclear wars. Three asteroids. Demonic madness that kills one third of the world's population. Into this, a savior will rise, cloned from Christ. It's not fiction. It's prophecy. The Messiah of the new age. His coming is prophesied by more than a dozen major religions. Cloned from live cells of Jesus Christ found on the Shroud of Turin, Christopher Goodman was born into the most turbulent time in human history. Mentored by former UN Assistant Secretary-General Robert Milner, Christopher rises in position and power, and displays remarkable wisdom and compassion. But through disjointed bits of dreams that sometimes haunt him, Christopher reveals significant troubling errors in the biblical record of Jesus' life.

    Kimberly says: "Great idea but falls short"
    "Great idea but falls short"
    Would you try another book from James BeauSeigneur and/or Kevin O'Brien?

    BeauSeigneur yes. O'Brian.. Doubtful

    Would you be willing to try another book from James BeauSeigneur? Why or why not?

    Yes. Good premise but the story gets lost in the politics of the UN. It gets rather tedious. Big shifts in time.

    What didn’t you like about Kevin O'Brien’s performance?

    The narrator's voice of the characters give many a cartoonish feel. The voices are actually irritating at times.

    Was The Christ Clone Trilogy - Book One worth the listening time?

    Only to get to book two.

    Any additional comments?

    I am enjoying book 2 so much better than this one. The narration is at times laughable and irritating. The story drones on about political maneuvering at the UN that could better be spent on filling some gaps of time.

  • Keep It Pithy: Useful Observations in a Tough World

    • UNABRIDGED (2 hrs and 46 mins)
    • By Bill O'Reilly
    • Narrated By Dan Woren, Bill O'Reilly
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Bill O’Reilly is one of the most recognized and talked-about journalists of our time. With an unparalleled track record as an author and with the number-one-rated Fox News show The O’Reilly Factor, O’Reilly has become a veritable institution of political insight and keen advice. In Keep It Pithy, O’Reilly offers a classic collection of the most memorable writings from his best-selling books, and looks back at how his opinions and ideas have been proven right or wrong by the passage of time.

    Donald Bidwell says: "THE TRIP WAS NOT WORTH THE FARE!"
    "Not Amongst his Best"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Disappointed really. O'Reilly has done better. This reminded me of a collage of meandering thoughts

    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    No real story or real direction.

    What does Dan Woren and Bill O'Reilly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Nothing at all. The book is likely a better choice.

    Did Keep It Pithy inspire you to do anything?

    Not really...Not good enough to want to buy the book.

    Any additional comments?

    I have read all of Bill's books and I am typically very pleased. This was the most disappointing. I would suggest the paper version is more appropriate...maybe.
