I have to hear this several more times to get all that is in this book. The massive references to other works indicate how well read this author is. I heard about Jonah on Crane Durham's "Nothing but Truth." I am impressed with how Jonah connects dots and how he rewinds history to give the original sense of cliches used (and abused). It is cause to slow the track down to catch all of the information.
Most of all, he does a great job in showing how such cliches bring useful discussions to a halt, if the listener is unprepared. Way to go Mr Goldberg!!
Thanks for the respectful discussion of Christianity. Not something heard much these days.
I will need to look for more of this man's work.
My wife and I listened to the book on our trip from NW Ohio to North Carolina. The book lasted us, essentially, the entire trip. It made the trip much more enjoyable. We could not go to sleep that night until we listened to the very last chapter.
The many details of each character made them come alive for us.
Recommend it to all. Killing Kennedy is next.
This is a very interesting listen. It presents some challenges for the Christian in a humble manner. I believe many current discussions and viewpoints originated from this book. There is no story or plot, but the discussion is more like a talk or lecture, giving the listener things to contemplate. The playback speed may have to be reduced to catch all of the nuances and points of departure for further discussion.
C.S. Lewis is not "pretty," but he is brilliant -
Compelling story told in a very captivating style.
Narrates very well.
Cannot evaluate at this time.
Have not completed my listen; plan to do so on a coming business trip.
