    The role of personal prayer, worship in common, everyday work, and Christian service is treated in simple, almost biblical, words. Life Together is bread for all who are hungry for the real life of Christian fellowship.

    What made the experience of listening to Life Together the most enjoyable?

    Bonhoeffer demonstrates for me how our life together as "fellowship" and "church" is so different than the richness of what it could and can be.


    Any additional comments?

    Some of the things about "Life Together" are particular to communal life, but the principles have a much broader application.

    Simply Christian walks the listener through the Christian faith step by step and question by question. With simple yet exciting and accessible prose, Wright challenges skeptics by offering explanations for even the toughest doubt-filled dilemmas, leaving believers with a reason for renewed faith. For anyone who wants to travel beyond the controversies that can obscure what the Christian faith really stands for, this simple book is the perfect vehicle for that journey.

    What did you love best about Simply Christian?

    The clarity with which N.T. Wright states what it means to be Christian.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is in the tradition of what has been called the Christian Classics. A must read for all who claim for themselves the title of Christian and for those who don't to understand what Christianity should be about.

  • Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 33 mins)

    Story
    (329)

    An old Chinese proverb says "Women hold up half the sky." Then why do the women of Africa and Asia persistently suffer human rights abuses? Continuing their focus on humanitarian issues, journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn take us to Africa and Asia, where many women live in profoundly dire circumstances.

    "An awakening book!"

    If you could sum up Half the Sky in three words, what would they be?

    Troubling, saddening, hopeful


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Half the Sky?

    The ones blotted on my memory is the helplessness of those caught in awful cultural domination of women. As a man, my heart was broken for these women, and I often had tears in my eyes as I listened.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All the scenes of women who are triumphing over the impossible.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did, but because of time could not.


    Any additional comments?

    I have different theological views than some of those expressed. It was easy for me to get past that to the overall thrust and mission of the book. This is a must read book, deserving wide circulation.
