    During a train trip from Chicago to Texas in the late 1940s, A.W. Tozer began to write The Pursuit of God. He wrote all night, and when the train arrived at his destination, the rough draft was done. The depth of this book has made it an enduring favorite.

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

    As an excellent primer of the Christian life many of the issues with faith are addressed. The Pursuit of God seems better fitted for those who benefit from a rational approach than for those who are devotionally minded.

    Albert Camus' The Stranger is one of the most widely read novels in the world, with millions of copies sold. It stands as perhaps the greatest existentialist tale ever conceived, and is certainly one of the most important and influential books ever produced. Now, for the first time, this revered masterpiece is available as an unabridged audio production.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Forty years ago I read S. Gilbert’s translation. Overtime, the story faded. Listening to M. Ward’s translation revived the story but has made it clear why the story was lost in memory. I am pleased to be of such simple dust so that I may find little merit in why so much of the reading population has found this story of interest. If I were to explain myself it would be the story is not really a very compelling expression of existentialism as it is of the cultic psychology engaged in by all those psychology majors over the last fifty years. As with the first reading, if I were not a disciplined reader I would have closed the book after the first chapter. The old copy on my book shelf is now in the trash. Sometimes it is pleasant to be dumber than all the intellectuals.

  • Beyond the Hundredth Meridian: John Wesley Powell and the Second Opening of the West

    Pulitzer Prize winner Wallace Stegner recounts the remarkable career of Major John Wesley Powell, the distinguished ethnologist and geologist who explored the Colorado River, the Grand Canyon, and the homeland of the Southwest Indian tribes. This classic work is a penetrating and insightful study of the Powell’s career, from the beginning of the Powell Survey, in which Powell and his men famously became the first to descend the Colorado River, to his eventual expulsion from the Geological Survey.

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

    This is an important work for the origins of the environmental movement as testified to by Mr. Stegner. All who enjoy wilderness and western history should appreciate this work as well as those interested in post civil war federal politics and bureaucracy.
