    The emergence of strange new diseases is a frightening problem that seems to be getting worse. In this age of speedy travel, it threatens a worldwide pandemic. We hear news reports of Ebola, SARS, AIDS, and something called Hendra killing horses and people in Australia - but those reports miss the big truth that such phenomena are part of a single pattern. The bugs that transmit these diseases share one thing: they originate in wild animals and pass to humans by a process called spillover. David Quammen tracks this subject around the world.

    Story

    I enjoyed this book minus the author's view on God and politics. I bought the book for the factual content of the science, not his liberal views on humanity, politics and God. There are some very blunt comments in the book that I could definitely do without. Most likely, I won't get another title from this author again unless it's something similar, meaning I find the science of viruses extremely interesting, which made the book worth my time.

    Is there credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God? Lee Strobel cross-examines a dozen experts with doctorates from schools like Cambridge, Princeton, and Brandeis. Strobel challenges them with questions like. How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence exist for Jesus outside the Bible? Strobel's tough questions make this read like a captivating, fast-paced novel. It's a riveting quest for the truth about history's most compelling figure. What will your verdict be?

    What made the experience of listening to The Case for Christ the most enjoyable?

    The author's ability to use examples to contrast his message. He would take an example of a case he had previously reported on in his journalism career and then use the unique details to emphasize his points.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Case for Christ?

    There were some things I never knew, I didn't realize the other historic texts on Jesus. Again, something in school I was never taught; and I definitely don't recall that information from catechism.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite part of the book was Strobel's ending, what he said.... I won't ruin it for you, but it resonated with me. It was his perspective, I just never thought of it like that.


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

    No, I did take a break from it, but I do that with most of my books I listen to rather than read.


    Any additional comments?

    Recommend to Christian and unbelievers, either way I think either one will come away from this book enlightened.
