    Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey and Matt Kibbe have been on the front lines of one of the fastest-growing and most influential political phenomena in recent memory: the Tea Party movement. As the leaders of the advocacy organization FreedomWorks, they have helped guide and give voice to hundreds of thousands of activists from across the country and have a strong vision for the future of this powerful grassroots uprising.

    I wish Audible allowed you to rate in one quarter increments because then this would have gotten a review of 3.75 from me.

    Because while I found the presentation style a bit dry for my liking, this book more than makes up for it in substance. That's why anyone truly interested in the what, how's and why's of the Tea Party should definitely pick up this title.

    This second book was even better than the first, for this is the book where all of the pieces fell into place and end-result was nothing less than a true masterpiece.

    This book will make you laugh, feel anxious, cry and praise God - all in one or two sittings!

    Story

    This book represents my introduction to the writings of Francine Rivers. To be sure there is absolutely nothing that I would change about A Voice in the Wind.

    What's weird is that if you'd approached me even two or three months ago and asked if I'd ever advocate making such a long fictional narrative - I would have told you absolutely not.

    However, part of the beauty of A Voice in the Wind is that the story is long enough that there was nothing in it that felt rushed. Everything that the characters' did or said seemed to happen precisely at the right time.

    Another really cool aspect of this book is that it was so beautiful watching Hadassa grow into a mature believer. In fact, by the end of the story it was easy to see that she was every bit as strong a Christian as the believers that she frequently referenced when she was feeling down. Furthermore, the author was sure to always find ways to give God the glory for this maturation.

    At the end of the day, I'd have to say that even if I was a non-believer this book would probably still be an all-time favorite on my list of top fictions.

    Follow the epic journey of Enoch the giant killer with his small band of family warriors who seek outlaw giants for bounty, but stumble upon a conspiracy of the Watchers that is so evil, it will change the universe forever if God does not stop them. You’ll meet some of the beloved characters from Noah Primeval when they were much younger, like Methuselah and Uriel, as well as the origin stories of the lead Watchers, Semjaza and Azazel who became the gods Anu and Inanna.

    This book caught me off guard with its creativity and depth. Furthermore, that Godawa was able to manage this while somehow preserving the integrity of the Bible is absolutely astounding.

    On a side note, I got a chuckle out of the way that Godawa inserted current event related themes into this ancient story - on the one hand these references seemed so random...Yet, tying them to the older narrative provided an added level of context that helps bring clarity to some of the things that we see going on in the world today.

    Highly satisfied with this book, will definitely be looking forward to more from Godawa!

    Story

    Just when I thought I'd read it all, when it comes to spiritual warfare works of fiction, I read Frank Peretti's "This Present Darkness". What's funny is that I flirted with the idea for three months before finally wagering my Audible credit for this book.

    And boy..was it worth it! Sure, the narration could have been better. But you know what? With a story this intense, you get so lost in the characters and plots that you almost don't even notice the recording flaws. In fact, there were times when I felt I was right there among the characters as the theme unfolded.

    The only qualm I have with Frank Peretti's master piece, is that he may have set the bar so high with this one that folksmay find it hard to read other spiritual thrillers without wishing that those books were more like This Present Darkness.

    One more thing...I was shocked to learn that this book was written way back in 1986. So prophetic...except in most cases; today's college towns have been thoroughly over run by modern day Langstrat's, Brumel's and Oliver Young's.

    Since he was a small boy, Mosab Hassan Yousef has had an inside view of the deadly terrorist group Hamas. The oldest son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, a founding member of Hamas and its most popular leader, young Mosab assisted his father for years in his political activities while being groomed to assume his legacy, politics, status...and power. But everything changed when Mosab turned away from terror and violence, and embraced instead the teachings of another famous Middle East leader.

    Story

    Through " Son of Hamas" Mosab Hassan Yousef has achieved something that I'd previously viewed as nearly impossible. That is to say this book has given me an amazing degree of insight into what is happening in the Middle East.

    That is not to say that reading this book will make you a scholar on the conflict in the Middle East, but if you're like me it will certainly ratchet your understanding of the situation up by at least several notches.

    Not only that but the fact that Mr. Yousef so openly shared his Christian faith (and conversion) with the world speaks volumes about this man's courage and conviction. As someone who attempts to walk the same Christian path, myself, I was moved by Youseff's testimony - even to tears.

    That being said this is an amazing book on so many levels.

    The demon is a mob, and the mob is demonic. The Democratic Party activates mobs, depends on mobs, coddles mobs, publicizes and celebrate mobs - it is the mob. Sweeping in its scope and relentless in its argument, Demonic explains the peculiarities of liberals as standard groupthink behavior. To understand mobs is to understand liberals.

    The fact that Coulter was able to thoroughly analyze and disect the liberal mob mentality in 5 hrs...

    - or -

    The fact that she provided such a logical explanation of the left's apparent idiosyncracies.

    Whatever the case, if you'be ever scratched your head after watching liberals do or say things that make no sense, this book is for you!

    As we approach the most important presidential election in America’s history, something has been lost among all of the debates, attack ads, and super- PACs - something that Americans used to hold in very high regard: THE TRUTH. The truth can no longer be something we hope for; it must be something we live. When courage prevails, cowards do not - and this book was written to ensure that’s exactly what happens.

    Story

    After having purchased Glenn's Arguing with Idiots I already knew to expect something that was as witty as it was timely...But Cowards went so far beyond my expectations!

    For starters let me say that I really believe that this book picks up where Andrew Breitbart's Righteous Indignation left off. However, whereas Andrew's book provided a bird's eye view of the liberal media complex; Beck's book goes a step beyond...

    He paints a picture (the 50,000 foot-down version) of the entire battlefield that you can expect to find yourself fighting on-if you're a conservative or a libertarian and Glenn holds no punches.

    He doesn't stop with exposing liberals either, he also shines the light on moderate Republicans who stand in the way of protecting our nation's values.

    In summary I don't think I've read an Audible title that kept me on the edge of my seat as much as this one did. Well done Mr. Beck!

    Known for his network of conservative websites that draws millions of readers everyday, Andrew Breitbart has one main goal: to make sure the "liberally biased" major news outlets in this country cover all aspects of a story fairly. Breitbart is convinced that too many national stories are slanted by the news media in an unfair way. In Righteous Indignation, Breitbart talks about the key issues that Americans face, how he has aligned himself with the Tea Party, and how one needs to deal with the liberal news world head on.

    Story

    This is easily the most important political title that I've ever read. In fact Righteous Indignation is the standard that I measure all other conservative titles against.

    Here's what makes this a masterpiece...Breitbart gets very personal in this book. Taking the reader from his liberal upbringing all the way up to the peak of his career as a conservative activist.

    While he shares his epic journey he also manages to deliver a tested blueprint or manifesto, if you will, for defeating the left. And when I say the left...we're not just talking liberal politicians.

    No...Breitbart's aim is to empower his readers to take down liberal culture - in its entirety. How can anyone top that? What's more, this isn't theory. Breitbart has already done it and you can too!

    The vast right wing conspiracy has found its General Patton, and his name is David Kahane. Kahane's pseudonymous, satiric column for National Review Online, lampooning the Left via his Hollywood-radical persona - Stephen Colbert's liberal doppelganger - is must-listening for political aficionados of all stripes. Now, from the inside, Kahane proudly exposes the secret and not-so-secret winning strategies (and vulnerabilities) of the Left.

    I'll be honest it took me about one or two hours of listening to "Kahane" beat me over the head with his sharp wit and sarcasm before I was finally able to move beyond the snarkiness and "get it".

    But once I did! This has got to be in my top five for 2012.

    Kahane leaves not a stone unturned as he rips Alinsky politics apart point by point, showing conservatives how to beat the left at their own game without losing your integrity in the process.
