    In this bold, momentous work, the pope, in his first book written as Benedict XVI, seeks to salvage the person of Jesus from recent "popular" depictions and to restore Jesus' true identity as discovered in the Gospels. Through his brilliance as a theologian and his personal conviction as a believer, the pope shares a rich, compelling, flesh-and-blood portrait of Jesus and incites us to encounter, face-to-face, the central figure of the Christian faith.

    Gerard says: "Great Insights"
    "insightfully reflective"
    Overall

    The new book by Pope Benedict is a thoughtful work that, once heard, offers insight into both biblical passages and their meaning that makes even familiar parables like the Good Samaritan appear fresh and vital for today. Not a light listen to undertake while doing other things simultaenously, but a work which offers great perspective into the Pope and his view on the Bible for those willing to reflect. Definitely not for Catholics alone.

    Story

    We view the long, horrifying struggle from the vantage of the White House as Lincoln copes with incompetent generals, hostile congressmen, and his raucous cabinet. He overcomes these obstacles by winning the respect of his former competitors, and in the case of Seward, finds a loyal and crucial friend to see him through. This brilliant multiple biography is centered on Lincoln's mastery of men and how it shaped the most significant presidency in the nation's history.

    Anders says: "wait for the unabridged version"
    "Bring history to life"
    Overall

    With the ease of an eye witness, Doris Kearns Goodwin pulls facts from history that brings the experience of the civil war into a new perspective. The author tells the story in a new way that intrigues the listener who hopes for more. Other than too little information about John Wilkes Booth, this book filled my every interest. It includes many key characters from history in a riviting tale you won't want to end...even if you know what happens.
