    Churches and individual Christians typically have faulty assumptions about the causes of poverty, resulting in the use of strategies that do considerable harm to poor people and themselves. When Helping Hurts provides foundational concepts, clearly articulated general principles and relevant applications. The result is an effective and holistic ministry to the poor, not a truncated gospel.

    Carrara says: "Amazing, practical book"
    "Turned my understanding of poverty on its head!"

    What did you love best about When Helping Hurts?

    This is the most profitable book I've bought on audible. It helped me understand the roots of poverty so that I can truly help instead of perpetuate the problems. It communicates the complex principles of community development in simple terms with practical examples. I would recommend downloading the kindle version as well for the helpful charts.

    In this spin-off from Deadline, columnist Clarence Abernathy seeks revenge for murder. He finds himself facing dark forces, while unseen eyes watch from above. This fascinating murder-mystery offers a deeper understanding of the meaning of life and a fascinating glimpse inside heaven.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Personal and societal skeletons in the closet, shackle our minds and keep us from experiencing true freedom and companionship.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The aged pastor who overcame prejudice and suffering with love and forgiveness.


    What about Frank Muller’s performance did you like?

    He changes easily between the black and hispanic gang bangers to a savvy politician, to a hard-nosed cop between breathes.


    If you could rename Dominion, what would you call it?

    A topical prayer guide addressing 14 common strongholds and what Scripture reveals about each of them, Praying God's Word presents Scriptures in prayer form to be incorporated into your daily prayer life.

    God's Word, through prayer, helps you overcome bitterness, anger, and unforgiveness, setting you free from each and every stronghold which claims your life, and replacing it with the mind of Christ.

    Would you listen to Praying God's Word again? Why?

    I only listen to many of my audible selections once. But I have listened to this book over and over again. It helps me meditate and pray through Scripture as I drive, as I go to sleep and as I wake up. My daughter was having bad dreams and I put this on for her before bed and it gave her peace of mind and soul.


    What other book might you compare Praying God's Word to and why?

    The Valley of Vision is another audio book that is helpful to focus your prayers.


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

  • Respectable Sins

    As Christians, we believe that all sins are considered equal in God's eyes. Yet while evangelicals continue to decry the Big Ones--such as abortion, adultery, and violence--we often overlook more deceptive sins. It seems we have created a sliding scale where gossip, jealousy, and selfishness comfortably exist within the church. In short, some sins have simply become acceptable.

    What made the experience of listening to Respectable Sins the most enjoyable?

    Jerry Bridges uncovers the roots of our socially acceptable sins and shows how nefarious they are. Yet he holds out the sweetness of forgiveness and the power to change through the work of Jesus Christ.

  • Generous Justice: How God's Grace Makes Us Just

    Why would we look to the Bible for guidance on how to have a more just society? But Timothy Keller, pastor of New York City’s Redeemer Presbyterian Church, challenges these preconceived beliefs and presents the Bible as a fundamental source for promoting justice and compassion for those in need. In Generous Justice, he explores a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace: a generous, gracious justice.

    The Greatest Story Ever Told is more than just a cliché. God goes to great lengths to rescue lost and hurting people, and that is what The Story is all about: the story of the Bible, God’s great love affair with humanity. Recorded in thirty-one accessible chapters, The Story audio download Bible sweeps you into the unfolding progression of Bible characters and events from Genesis to Revelation. Using the clear, accessible text of the NVI Bible, it allows the stories, poems, and teachings of the Bible to read like a novel.

    Patricia says: "Very nicely narrated, very good voice and very cld"

    Would you consider the audio edition of La Historia to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the narrator drew me into the story and I could visualize what was happening better than reading it.


    What other book might you compare La Historia to and why?

    No comparison. La Historia weaves together the narrative of the Bible without the parts that can bog the story down.


    What about the narrator???s performance did you like?

    Animated, but not overdone.


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

    Epic! La Historia weaves together the tapestry of ancient history and ties it to our modern lives and points to a glorious hope for the future.
