    A definitive, deeply moving narrative, Bonhoeffer is a story of moral courage in the face of the monstrous evil that was Nazism. After discovering the fire of true faith in a Harlem church, Bonhoeffer returned to Germany and became one of the first to speak out against Hitler. As a double agent, he joined the plot to assassinate the Führer and was hanged in Flossenbürg concentration camp at age thirty-nine. Since his death, Bonhoeffer has grown to be one of the most fascinating, complex figures of the twentieth century.

    Alan says: "Very Moving"
    "Outstanding!"
    Overall

    This was one of the best books I have ever listened to. The early history of Bonhoeffer, the strife within the German church, andthe person struggles Bonhoeffer had to justify in his own heart becoming part of the "Conspiracy" were all developed brilliantly by MetaTexas. This is a great story of faith, espionage, evil, love and tragedy. I highly recommend it!

  • Eat This Book: A Conversation on the Art of Spiritual Reading

    The second part of Peterson's momentous five-volume work on spiritual theology, Eat This Book challenges us to read the Scriptures on their own terms, as God's revelation, and to live them as we read them. With warmth and wisdom Peterson offers greatly needed, down-to-earth counsel on spiritual reading. In these pages he draws readers into a fascinating conversation on the nature of language, the ancient practice of lectio divina, and the role of Scripture translations.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Eat This Book to be better than the print version?

    This is volume 2 of Eugene Petersons 5 volume series on Spiritual Theology. His style is very conversational and understandable. I highly recommend this book and the others in the series.

  • Christianity: The First Three Thousand Years

    Once in a generation, a historian will redefine his field, producing a book that demands to be read or heard - a product of electrifying scholarship conveyed with commanding skill. Diarmaid MacCulloch's Christianity is such a book. Breathtaking in ambition, it ranges back to the origins of the Hebrew Bible and covers the world, following the three main strands of the Christian faith.

    Celia says: "Generally quite good"
    "Great Disappointment"
    Overall

    If you're looking for an unbiased historical analysis of the History of Christianity, this is not the book. The author continually takes shots at Christianity throughout the book. For all the detail he provides, he continually fails to provide evidence for many of the comments/ shots he takes at Christianity. The author's biases were so apparent that they inhibited his ability to properly present a strong documented historical analysis of Christianity. I can read just about anything and look for positive take aways from a book. I have never rated a book this poorly, but this book was a waste of time and money.
