    Hear God's written Word spoken, period. Thomas Nelson introduces the NKJV Voice Only Audio Bible. Narrated by Bob Sourer, you can hear just the Word of God, from beginning to end, Genesis to Revelation, through the voice of a master storyteller. In Luke 4:4, Jesus said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.'"

    This is a great listen, great price and I'm ecstatic that I was able to find it.

  • Erasing Hell: What God Said about Eternity, and the Things We Made Up

    How could a loving God send people to Hell? Will people have a chance after they die to believe in Jesus and go to heaven? With a humble respect for God’s Word, Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle address the deepest questions you have about eternal destiny. They’ve asked the same questions. Like you, sometimes they just don’t want to believe in Hell. But, as they write, “We cannot afford to be wrong on this issue.” This is not a book about who is saying what. It’s a book about what God says.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The contents of the book could be interesting if someone with more pep was reading it. I tried several times to listen, but gave up before listening to an hour. And probably didn't listen to much of what I did hear because I couldn't dedicate myself to the dull voice.

  • Love Wins: A Book About Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived

    Millions of Christians have struggled with how to reconcile God's love and God's judgment: Has God created billions of people over thousands of years only to select a few to go to heaven and everyone else to suffer forever in hell? Is this acceptable to God? How is this "good news"? Author, pastor, and innovative teacher Rob Bell presents a deeply biblical vision for rediscovering a richer, grander, truer, and more spiritually satisfying way of understanding heaven, hell, God, Jesus, salvation, and repentance.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Needs a point. It reads like a long poem of questions with no conclusion. It's just suggestions of conclusions. Perhaps I missed the point somewhere in the listening, but I like a thesis to go along with what I am reading/listening to. The thesis doesn't have to be correct. He can, even in the midst of writing, come to a different conclusion. But there needs to be some sort of line of thinking, otherwise it's just a really interesting list of questions and biblical facts.

    At the very least he could have said he doesn't know what he believes finally on the issue, but he has a series of questions and supporting Biblical excerpts to begin a discussion.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Rob Bell? Why or why not?

    Yes. I've read/listened to other books of his that were compelling.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Rob Bell?

    Yes. He tends to read all his own, so I wouldn't have much choice if I wanted to listen to another of his books. I'd have to say it does get a little annoying. He talks with what I can only describe as a feminine sounding sort of passion. It grinds sometimes like a kid whining about why he or she can't jump off the roof of the house. Makes me feel unsure he's sure.


    Did Love Wins inspire you to do anything?

    I like to feel a certain amount or more of conviction when I hear something of God, and I didn't get that with this so much. However, I've always been curious about the actual definition of hell, so it has added somewhat to that internal discussion.


    Any additional comments?

    More a comment on the author himself as he presents his story and from what I've read heard. I don't care much if he decides to leave his church to do a speaking tour or whatever he's doing. I think it's sort of infantile for other pastors, like Rick Warren, to judge him for this decision. What I do care about, and worry about is the need to add unnecessary shock value.

    The questions he's asking about are already mind bending enough, but then he feels the need to say he went to an Eminem concert. I don't care if he did or not. What worries me is that by saying this simple thing he is inviting controversy. The problem with this is people will engage. Then it will be more about his practices, and his positions. These are not even really related to what he might actually be wanting to get across...whatever that actually is.

    Lauren Winner shares the spiritual practices she has adopted in her quest to reconcile Judaism and Christianity. Despite her conversion from Orthodox Judaism to Christianity, Lauren Winner finds that her life is still shaped by the spiritual essences of Judaism - rich traditions and religious practices that she can't leave behind. In Mudhouse Sabbath, Winner illuminates eleven spiritual practices that can transform the way we view the world, and God.

    This book helped in my growing understanding of where many of Christian customs come from and where we seem to missing simple actions that may help us through marriage, grief and life in general.

    Nee-To-Sheng of Foochow, China is best known as Watchman Nee to hundreds of thousands of Christians around the world who have encountered his work. Those who pick up this work, Spiritual Authority, will forever remember the power with which he creates. Here, Watchman Nee discusses authority - the authority of God over humans and the authorities that God sends to humans. This is a profoundly simple and Biblical exploration of God's purposes in His authority over us.

    This book puts into perspective the authorities we all have in our lives, and the importance of respecting each of them as authorities placed by God. It breaks down very simply why, whether we agree with their practices why we are to obey them accordance with Godly principles. As all Nee books...GREAT! Michael Kramer is also an excellent narrator.

    A deceptive spirit that is still dangerously active in the earth today, especially in the church, controlled Jezebel the infamous wife of King Ahab, and Queen of Israel. As believers we must understand, that beneath the physical manifestation of Jezebel is a chameleon spirit that can influence both men and women equally. This message was preached live at Rod Parsley’s Dominion Camp Meeting 2004.

    I never knew what the Jezebel spirit was and when I started researching it I wanted to learn more. This and Juanita's other teaching made a lot more things clearer for me in all areas of life where people's reactions and actions are concerned.

    The king's sudden death leaves his son Manasseh as the new ruler. Overcome with sorrow, Manasseh is angry toward God and begins a reign of terror that shocks the kingdom. His own insecurity prompts the death of his closest advisors, dividing the faithful in two. Barely escaping the carnage, his best friend Joshua suffers the excruciating loss of his family and plans revenge.

    A good book, good story. It certainly makes one think about way God works, even if most of it is fiction.

    I would have liked to rate the quality of the reader or sound. You hear too often the reader gulping.taking a breathe throughout the book. This was distracting.

    Originally a series of messages delivered at Customs Lane, Foochow, South China in 1948, these were translated and published by Sure Foundation Publishers in 1965. Brother Nee's writings are an amazing call to fellow Christians. This work is only small in size, but not stature as "the author strongly recommends to all the servants of Christ that they learn a most fundamental lesson in their Christian experience; namely, the breaking of the outward man for the release of the inward spirit."

    This classic work unfolds the path of Christian faith and presents the eternal purpose of God in simple terms. Nee's discussion and writings on the book of Romans is truly challenging. His classic work takes on many difficult subjects and radically challenges current Christian culture.

    The truths in this book are so simple, yet so hard to see without being told. It opened my eyes to things I had never before considered and kick myself for not realizing earlier.

    Nee is generally a hard read/listen. Not because the writing is dull, but, because it is so rich and full. You have to dedicate real time to his books, this one included. I've had to rewind a few times, but it is well worth it.

    An angry rebel, John dropped out of school and enlisted in the Army, not knowing what else to do with his life - until he meets Savannah, the girl of his dreams. Their mutual attraction quickly grows into the kind of love that leaves Savannah waiting for John to finish his tour of duty, and John wanting to settle down with the woman who has captured his heart. But 9/11 changes everything. John feels it is his duty to re-enlist.

    Lovely. A heart warming, heart wrenching listen.

    Better than the movie. Some cheese, but every love story has to have a little of it I suppose.

    It's refreshing to pretend for a while that love can be so innocent and free of worldly taints.
