    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I read a lot of books and someone highly recommended this but I didn't find a lot of content and wouldn't read or listen to it again. It is really short, so it doesn't waste a lot of your time.

    Join the conversation as a father and son talk about pursuing beauty, dealing with money, getting married, chasing dreams, knowing something real with God, and how to find a life you can call your own. Killing Lions is more than fatherly advice. It is an invitation into a journey: either to be the son who receives fathering or the father who learns what must be spoken. Most important, these conversations speak to a searching generation: "You are not alone. Its not all up to you. You are going to find your way."

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Story

    Everyone told me to read this, so I finally did and wow! I really enjoyed the narrator as well. The story is so powerful and as a Christian I find it awesome and amazing how God changed this man's life and so many because if him. So well written! You are immersed into each scene in such vivid clarity and feel the pain, joy...full emotion add the story unfolds. The journey of a man's life and the rippling effects of knowing he could survive anything and survived more than most will ever imagine in their nightmares.

    I strongly recommend this for anyone looking for hope, encouragement...perspective. It is a deep and moving story that the movie shamefully missed the heartbeat of.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I'm a HUGE Frank Peretti fan so when I heard this was out, first long trip this was getting listen to for sure. I was wildly disappointed and discouraged even. Has Frank spent too much time with Dekker? Me thinks so. I think girls will love this book as for me, it was painful to listen to, long and boring and the conclusion was disappointing. I thought at least if I made it to the end it would be good but he failed big time in accomplishing his "six sense" story, I had it figured out long before and the twisted craziness you can get all day long from Ted Dekker. I'm wondering where the Frank Peretti of This Present Darkness is? Where is the Christian writer writing with a mission to bring to life the Bible and Christian life with words? Where is the one that tells a great story but also leaves me hungry for God and desiring to be a bolder, more Christ like, prayer warrior...???


    What could Frank Peretti have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    He needs to go back to his first 3 books and wounded spirit speech and ask why they were so huge, why they moved people so much... back to stories that reach the soul of men and women and cause them to want to rise up, want to be closer to God, stronger in their faith


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

    Nothing


    Did Illusion inspire you to do anything?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    Please Mr Peretti, please come back to us, get back in the Word, find whatever it was and draw close to God that you might through fiction lead us through a great story but also one that speaks to our soul, to what we know will come or is there. That causes us to want to remember who we are as Christ followers. Please!

To become a strong, confident woman, a daughter needs her father's attention, protection, courage, and wisdom. Dr. Meeker shares the 10 secrets every father needs to know in order to strengthen or rebuild bonds with his daughter and shape her life - and his own - for the better.

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

    Every Father of a Daughter should make it his goal in life to read this book. WOW! I'm not a father yet but I am a man and I am trusting God for a family one day soon. I want to be prepared and Dave Ramsey highly recommended this book so I read it. I've since given it out to several people. It is a powerful book and because it's written by a women about women/girls, it really helped me understand the way they think a little more, at least in terms of how they perceive their Dad, men, and how they really feel even though often their words are farthest from it... Please read, please know it will impact your family and generations to come if you do with great blessings. Some of the content is hard to read and hear... hard to believe and hard to take in, but if you can open your eyes you can then be aware and with awareness you can reach out and FIGHT for her, be her warrior that she needs even when she is screaming against you.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters?

    WOW too many things to mention here... Mostly I learned how to listen better and actually hear better what the girls in my life are saying when they speak. Also how to approach them and love them better, deeper, with greater understanding and love.


    Any additional comments?

    Thanks Meg and Dave, great book! Life changer!

    "When people describe my lifestyle or family as weird, I find comfort," writes author Craig Groeschel. He then shares a Christ-centered philosophy on everything from money to scheduling to purity, to help you break out of the normal rut and live according to the rhythms of God's grace and truth of his word.

    What would have made WEIRD better?

    I listen and read a lot of books but I couldn't continue with this one even though it came highly recommended. As a Christian I am really always weighing stuff out with the Bible and just a short ways in there were too many times I said "that isn't true, that isn't in the Bible, that is scriptural, that he is twisting..." I feel like there is a movement going on where thousands and millions go to church every Sunday, rock out, hear a sweet little message and then live like the world and call themselves Christian. The HOLY BIBLE teaches nothing of that. I know so many people kids to adults that do and live like the world, even to the point of affairs, living together, sex before marriage, drinking, drugs, and then call themselves Christians and go to church on Sunday. The Devil has sold a lie and we measure success by worldly standards so we think these mega churches are successful, right? Some are, some are truly preaching, teaching and speaking God's word and changing lives and their members are living godly lives, they are convicted and uncomfortable, they grow more like Christ... but most of them are only seeming to be successful and are more like businesses, make you feel good, get a dime, have a good week, but nothing deep, soul deep, Holy Spirit deep is happening, they come in with their sin and leave with it without any prick to their soul... Just a caution.

    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    What did you love best about The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People?

    I had just finished this a few days before hearing of Dr Covey's death on July 16, 2012. Broke my heart and I felt cheated (selfishly) because I didn't get a chance to follow his tweets, take one of his courses, go to one of his lectures, here him speak... I was so glad that he read this book himself.

    You will feel like your sitting on the floor looking up at someone who has much wisdom to offer. You will also find this book is so deep that you will need to read it several times to grasp the gold inside. I am amazed at how I just simply think about things differently and how my perception changed from things that now seem like "of course" I should have known that.

    Please put this at the top of your list, this is a MUST READ for any human alive and kicking. There is also one for Teens and Children. I wish I had read this as a kid and a teen and now as an adult, it would be my 3rd dose at least and wow, how powerful would that have been.


    What did you like best about this story?

    7 Habits are so Powerful, Common Sense and yet deep deep. I am changed and better for reading this book, I believe.


    Have you listened to any of Stephen R. Covey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I certainly will now.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed and cried several times through out the book


    Any additional comments?

    My prayers are with Dr Covey's family and friends. Thank you for using your life to bless mine and millions of others.

    He-Motions brings clarity and hope to men and helps them strengthen their relationships with themselves, with the women in their lives, and with their Lord. It gives women the solutions they seek as they relate to the men they love. It is a book that will bring you closer together and closer to God.

    If you could sum up He-Motions in three words, what would they be?

    I felt like he touched on a lot of stuff but didn't explore it and go deep enough like I would have liked. I really was hoping after it was over, that there was more. It felt like the entire book nearly was an introduction and we were going to get to the answers, reveal some stuff that I'm searching for answers to, but it just ended. I do recommend, with that said, that men read it. You will gain and benefit a lot from it!


    What other book might you compare He-Motions to and why?

    Point Man, King Me, Way of the Wild Heart, Wild at Heart

    Using kings of the Old Testament as character studies, Steve Farrar examines the critical role a father plays in preparing his son to become a godly man. What separated the good kings from the bad kings was a father who made time commitments to mentor his son, by modeling biblical manhood. Do you want your son to become a man of regal character? Then this book is for you!

    What did you love best about King Me?

    WOW! Every man and boy alive should read this book. Certainly every father or father to be of a son should read this book. Man so powerful and speaks to my heart so deeply. I'm not a Father yet but I know that when I am I will re-read this and I am more prepared to be so, but not only that, more prepared to live in the world as a Christian man, son, husband, brother, leader, employee, employer... This book is life changing!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything!


    What did you learn from King Me that you would use in your daily life?

    How to be a better more intentional male adult. Also more about myself and finding that other men struggle with the same things I do, not some, all. I want to be a man that lives in relationships intentionally in my actions and conversations that build, encourage, teach, and grow those around me and certainly those under me that I'm responsible for.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to read Steve's other books and can't thank him enough for this one!

    The incomparable master of the legal thriller takes us deeper into the labyrinth that is the American justice system, always drawing us in with an irresistible hook, pulling the thread of tension tighter and tighter, and then knocking us out with a conclusion that's never "by the book". Maybe that's why, after more than 20 years of consecutive number-one New York Times best sellers, a new novel by America's favorite storyteller is still a major publishing event.

    I'm a John Grisham fan and have been since the beginning. It's a great story, relaxing for me on my trip and I enjoyed it.


    Did Dennis Boutsikaris do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, in an audiobook the narrator is everything and he did a great job.


    Could you see The Litigators being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes
