    What was it like to live during the time of Jesus? Where did people live? Who did they marry? What was family life like? And how did people survive? These are just some of the questions that Scott Korb answers in this engaging new book, which explores what everyday life entailed two thousand years ago in first-century Palestine, that tumultuous era when the Roman Empire was at its zenith and a new religion---Christianity---was born.

    connie says: "accessible listen with broad appeal"
    "Confusing!"
    Overall

    The author repeatedly indicates that this book is not about Jesus, yet the only source of information he cites is the Bible. His message is very confusing.

    Facing down mercenaries in Africa, Jason Bourne witnesses the death of an art dealer named Tracy Atherton. Her killing dredges up snatches of Bourne's impaired memory, in particular the murder of a young woman on Bali who entrusted him with a strangely engraved ring­­ - an artifact of such powerful significance that people have killed to obtain it. Now he's determined to find the ring's owner and purpose. But Bourne never knows what terrible acts he'll discover he committed when he digs into the past.

    Bob Larive says: "Very hard to follow."
    "Terrible book!"
    Overall

    Buyer beware! The book was so complicated and so difficult to follow. Finally I gave up trying.

    The author/narrator speaks like she's in a hurry to finish the book. it's hard to listen to.

    Francis dealt with his own hatred and violence and so became a peacemaker. Francis dealt with his own brokenness and so became a healer. We are called to do the same in this inspiring talk by Franciscan Father Richard Rohr.

    The audio is so terrible. It's hardly worth purchasing because it's so hard to hear.
