    Taking his trademark intellectual approach to understanding Christianity, Timothy Keller uncovers the essential message of Jesus, locked inside his most familiar parable. Within that parable Jesus reveals God's prodigal grace toward both the irreligious and the moralistic. This book will challenge both the devout and skeptics to see Christianity in a whole new way.

    What did you love best about The Prodigal God?

    What did I love about "The Prodical God" ... everything. What a great book! When I first started to listen the author was talking about how the book is a great resource for new believers so I was a little apprehensive but not for long. It really dealt with a lot of things I am /was going through. If it doesn't relate to you ...you will know some one that it does. It helped me understand why I could be sold out to God and still empty.


    What other book might you compare The Prodigal God to and why?

    I don't know how much of a comparison it is but Walking With God by John Eldridge is another book that had a similar impact on my


    Which character ??? as performed by Timothy Keller ??? was your favorite?

    n/a


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When he was takling about the older brother.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to this two times already. That says a lot!! I have told and convinced two of my friends that they just had to listen /read it ... they feel the same way, with a same impact. I was telling another friend and she said that they did this as a study at their church and lent me the DVD. I cant wait!It is definately one that I will recomend again and again

    Charlotte Graham is at the center of the most famous kidnapping in Chicago history. The FBI and local cops found her two abductors, killed them, and rescued her, but it took four long years. The fact that she was found just three miles from her home, had been there the entire time, haunts them. She’s since changed her identity, found a profession she loves, and rebuilt her life. She’s never said a word — to the cops, to her doctors, to her family — about those four years.

    Would you try another book from Dee Henderson and/or Adam Verner?

    I really didn't care for Adam Verner. The narration of the different characters sounded unnatural. In the past I have really enjoyed Dee Henderson ie. the characters in the Malory series but this is the second book by here that I have not been thrilled with.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dee Henderson again?

    I will really have to see what the reviews are saying. Although this book got decent reviews.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    there wasn't a lot that I liked about the performance. I didn't like his voice selection for the male characters. He did a decent job at the female characters.


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

    If you like coin collecting ... that would be a plus. Even though I thought the leading male character was implausible It was a good correlation to the patience of God when it comes to wooing us out of a place of hurt.


    Any additional comments?

    I specifically look for Christian authors because I like how they show what faith looks like in different walks of like and in a variety situations. The book didn't even have much of that. I felt that it left a big whole when it comes to the really tragic things that happen in this world.


    Example - God promises to never leave us our forsake us... He does NOT promise us a life with our adversity, quite the contrary. HE DOES say that He will make it up to us.

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

    I was disappointed in the story because I thought I was purchasing a Christian Fiction book. There is close to no characters that are living out the christian faith except for how the town pulls together to help those on need. But even this doesn't reference God, ... just the neighborly thing that goes on in small towns. There is a token mention of Jesus (Christmas pageant)but that is about it. My biggest complaint was the main characters sex outside of marriage, like it was no biggy. I am by no means a prude about sexuality I just didn't expect to be treated casually in a christian fiction book. The story line was a little to predictable for my taste.


    Would you recommend Bring Me Home For Christmas to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend it because of the reasons I mentioned

    A Texas serial killer called BoneMan is on the loose, choosing young girls as his prey, His signature: myriad broken bones that torture and kill - but never puncture. In a story that is devaststing in its skill and suspense, - Ted Dekker brings to bear his ability to terrify and compel in BoneMan's Daughters.

    Todd says: "This is one sick twisted character"

    Overall

    Excellent listen. Narrator does a great job of making the bad guy sound totally creepy.The book was pushing the limites of what I like to listen/read. I don't like to read about physical violence and if that type of stuff gets to you this may not be a good choice.
    That aside, it definetly kept my attention. It gives you a good look at evil and how evil like to justify its actions. If you read the bible you will be able to identify with the obvious and underling thems of the book.

    Fleeing assailants through alleyways in Denver late one night, Thomas Hunter narrowly escapes to the roof of an industrial building. Then a silent bullet from the night clips his head and his world goes black. When he awakes, he finds himself in an entirely different reality, a green forest that seems more real than where he was. Every time he tries to sleep, he wakes up in the other world, and soon he truly no longer knows which reality is real.

    Andrew says: "Narrator speaks at double speed without pauses…"
    "completely sucked in"

    wow, i really didn't kow what to expect. This was my first "read" of Ted Dekker. It was an excelent listen, so much so that i was hard pressed to get anything else done! I have to get the second book because the end leaves you dangling in air! I really enjoyed definetly would recomend it
