When O-lan goes to the fields to help Wang Lung. Him seeing her as a help mate.
I liked the way he would articulate different people. Allowing me to know who was talking.
It made me sad to be placed in each characters position. Knowing how O-lan felt when Wang Lung saw her ugliness for the first time. For drought, rain, famine, and family that would suck the life out of anyone, but Wang Lung stood strong and learned to manage his money.
Pearl Buck is one great writer. I have had her books in my collection for years and unable to read it because of time restrictions. Now with Audiobooks, I can listen as well read and enjoy my books as I travel.
.. Having this hard bound book in my library for years, but never had the time to read it. Makes me sad. Now listening to, Here I Stand, truly makes me understand what Martin Luther did for Christian growth. This book also encourages me to read my Bible and dig deeper. I also thank God for his servant Martin Luther.This will NOT be the last time I listen to this book. For I have listened to many self-help books in the past, but this one goes right to the core... my Spirit.
Understanding the Reformation and what it took to take on the Roman Catholic church within.
I have not listened to Tome Weiner before, but I truly enjoyed his voice.
Yes. My extreme reaction was anger. I'm mad that many ordained men/women of God become full of greed. Also, just because anyone who goes to a Protestant church does not mean their church leadership from the top down it is not immune.
This book should be read by new converts to the faith. To understand how greed can get into the church. Each one of us has the truth at our fingertips... called the Bible. Read it and ask the Holy Spirit for help.
It is easier to listen to Beth Moore than reading it. Her energy and insight motivates me than the printed word.
no, I wanted to follow instructions and build on each chapter
I was unable to finish the Book. I just couldn't stand Robert Lakes voice. I also allowed my mother of 87 years to hear it, and she also didn't care for Robert Lakes voice.
I felt that Robert Lakes wanted to emulate Billy Graham with no success. He should stay with western books.
First time I purchased an Audible book of Billy Graham. I will go back to Books a Million and purchase the hard copy from now on.
I am a 65 year old Geek. Enjoyed hearing about the struggles and successes of Steve Jobs. I even wonder how in the world did he take so many drugs and still have an IQ equal to Einstein ? Great book to learn about the progression of Apple.
