    Overall

    While very long (and addictive) this novel is wonderfully inspiring. Be prepared to spend lengths of your time with it. Francine Rivers does a great job developing her characters in the historical context of the early Christians in Rome and all of these stories are thought provoking. It's scary how the Roman society (as portrayed here) devolved into something similar to our society today! I'm not sure how historically accurate they might be, but I would like to think they are....
    I wanted to particularly mention the narrator- he does a fabulous job differentiating the characters by voice, being consistent throughout which is very helpful considering the variety of males and females who hold conversations in the story.

    What happens when a young child is traumatized? How does terror affect a child's mind---and how can that mind recover? Child psychiatrist Bruce Perry has treated children faced with unimaginable horror: genocide survivors, witnesses to their own parents' murders, children raised in closets and cages, the Branch Davidian children, and victims of family violence. In The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog, he tells their stories of trauma and transformation.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog to be better than the print version?

    I'm not an aural learner, so the technical explanations were harder for me to comprehend by listening the first time. Once I caught on to the pattern, I listened several more times to the explanations by the Doctor that followed each story. Either way it's an inspiring book!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog?

    The kindergarten class who became therapists themselves!


    What does Danny Campbell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Pretty good reading, clear and concise. I think I slowed down the book to get all of the good stuff.


    If you could give The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog a new subtitle, what would it be?

    I missed the subtitle before I started listening- HOPE is the word that's missing!!


    Any additional comments?

    Not just for students of the brain or social workers- All Policy makers and parents should hear this and learn!!

    Overall

    I wanted to have an edition of the Psalms for my daily devotional and this serves that purpose- barely. I find this reader to be flat and almost unemotional. Seems like he couldn't make a joyful noise if he tried. I also wish the bookmarks would line up with the Psalm numbers. For instance Chapter One is the first 7 Psalms, I think, but you don't know that until you go there and then you have to put a note on your Bookmark so you can find it again. Humpf.... frustration.

  • Unshaken: A Lineage of Grace, Book III

    Unshaken is the third book in the Grace of Lineage series. "Your God will be my God": It is with these words that Ruth the Moabitess turns her face away from her father's home and idols, and journeys to Bethlehem with Naomi, her mother-in-law. And it is because of that determination, that perseverance, faith, and loyalty that Ruth becomes the great-grandmother of David, king of Israel, and an ancestor of Jesus.

    Rachelle says: "Awesome example, leaving all to gain everything!"
    "Wonderful series!"
    Overall

    I am really loving these short novella length books- so much that I wonder what I'm missing.... Francine Rivers is a master (mistress?) at bringing out the characters in the Bible to get the message that God can use us all to His own purpose. I've done Bible Studies about Ruth but I've never contemplated what it would really be like to BE her. This book really gives you an understanding of the life and times of Ruth and why she would pledge to follow Naomi into an unknown culture- to be a beggar no less! Another wonderful story of God's Redeeming Love. Enjoyed the narrator, also.
