    As the work at the heart of Christianity, the Bible is the spiritual guide for one out of every three people in the world. It is also the world's most widely distributed book, having been translated into over 2,000 languages, as well as the world's best-selling book, year after year. But the Bible is a complex work with a complicated and obscure history.

    This book was very thought provoking, but you should already know something about Bible history to get the most out of this listen, it is not an entry level book.

    The theme of this four-day retreat: "It's Always Now" The Now is inseparable from who you are at the deepest level. It is the prerequisite of Being. As you listen to the words on this tape, you participate in the retreat. To "retreat" means to step back - not only from the outer world, but also from the world in your head, the thinking mind. Allow the sound of the words to take you beyond words and beyond sound to the stillness within.

    Stephanie says: "The best Audible credit I've spent yet"
    "Really good and thought provoking"
    Overall

    Eckhart Tolle has really good and thought provoking ideas, the main problem with this listen is the audiance is distracting.

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    This listen was another awsome book by Dan Brown, done only the way he can by merging fact and fiction.

    Part poetic masterpiece, part mystic treatise, The Dark Night of the Soul by 16th century Carmelite monk St. John of the Cross, addresses the feeling of being forgotten by the Presence of the Almighty that every Christian desirous of walking more closely with God must pass through in order to learn to walk by faith and not by sight.

    In Practical Mysticism, Evelyn Underhill distills the essential (and comprehensible) steps that comprise the process of achieving mystical understanding. Though she uses the pantheon of Christian mystics as her guide, her methodology transcends any particular faith and offers a common sense approach to self-improvement and enhanced awareness.

    Entrenched in a conflict over slave labor, the industrialized North and slave-powered South of the mid-1800s became entangled in the only war to be waged between Americans on U.S. soil. The Civil War, infamously known as the bloodiest military conflict to date, engaged three million Americans, claiming the lives of over half a million.

    Steven says: "An excellent glimpse into the Civil War"
    "Basic but good"
    Overall

    since I read a lot history type books this was very basic, but if you want a great starter Civil War book this is it.

    In Day of Recokoning, the author explicates the current existential crisis in the United States. President Bush's conversion to an ideology of "democratism" after 9/11, Buchanan says, has led the country to the edge of strategic disaster while creating fierce divisions among Americans.

    This book was OK but really just another far right wing opinion.

    Through the ages, mankind has pursued questions of faith in something beyond the world of ordinary experience. Is there a God? How can we explain the presence of evil? Do humans, or human souls, live on after death? Is there a hell? The following lectures examine these eternal questions and present the most compelling arguments for and against God's existence, the seeming conflicts between religion and science, and the different truth-claims of the world's most popular religions.

    This was so boring, I could not even finish. narration was very monotone and I wanted to fall asleep when I was listening to it. To bad it seemed to be an interesting topic.
