    Christians often focus so much on being loving and giving that they forget their own limitations.

    Louise says: "Changed my life"
    "Good content bad reading"
    Overall

    The content of the book is well thought out and presented. It has a lot to offer me.

    The narration is another matter. When the reader came to a passage in which a woman was speaking he would use a voice that sounded weak and felt condesending toward women. My wife listened to more than half of the book with me, but she faithfully protested the voice used to portray the female characters.

    The text is very gender inclusive. The reading is not.

    In this concise presentation of evangelical theology - the theology that first received expression in the New Testament writings and was later rediscovered by the Reformation - Barth discusses the place of theology, theological existence, the threat to theology, and theological work.

    Tom says: "The audio version is very helpful"
    "Astounding"
    Overall

    The author was clear and the narrator was great for the text. I had attempted Barth before and gave up. But this work was understandable and compelling. I liked it so much I also bought a copy for my Kindle which I am underlining ant noting.

    In this fascinating program, Helen Palmer introduces a vital system of sacred psychology capable of stunning insights into our lives and loves. This Enneagram is a model of 9 central passions used in varying forms by Buddhists, Sufis, and Christians. In this comprehensive introduction, Palmer covers topics such as the 9 personality types, history and origins, how to recognize your type, the role of attention and awareness in type, how your type can give you spiritual direction, dynamics of type interaction, how to avoid mis-typing others, and much more. Here is a priceless opportunity to overcome the veil of illusion that limits your perception to only one-ninth of reality.

    "I found a lot value and help in this book"
    Overall

    I am glad I bought this book. I wish I had it two years earlier.
    While I occassionally wish the author said more about this or that, I find there is so much useful information in this book that I keep coming back to it again and again for increased self-awareness and for insight in my relationships.
    I have found the paper version a helpful resource (or online info) since I need the visualization of the circle of the nine types and the directions of movent between them in times of stress or security.
    I hope the publisher releases a pdf download to suppliment the audio.

    New York Times best seller and Whitebread Book of the Year, Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney's new translation of Beowulf comes to life in this gripping audio. Heaney's performance reminds us that Beowulf, written near the turn of another millennium, was intended to be heard not read.

    Gail says: "Would like the whole thing!"
    "This is an All Time Favorite Story and Narrator."
    Overall

    Required reading in high school. I have been back to this one again and again. Heaney is so much my preferred reader that I will listen to no other rendition of this work.
    I listen to this for different reasons each time it seems. I have come to Beowulf to experience the action, or the honor, or the tragedy, or the hope. I am in the mood for this book every fall and many summers. Listening to it helps me identify my own internal struggle in the mirrored images of these people.

    Keith Ferrazzi is a master networker who claims his secret is merely reaching out to other people. And what distinguishes highly successful people from everyone else is the way they use the power of relationships, so that everyone wins. In Never Eat Alone, Ferrazzi presents the specific steps and mindset he uses to connect with the thousands of individuals in his Rolodex.

    "The Only Regret is not Reading This Sooner"
    Overall

    This book is an absolute eye-opener for me. It challenged my thoughts about political relationships in college at work and more. It offered me greater sense of purpose and fulfillment through building contacts into an intimate network.
    Maybe I wanted a different narrator at the start, but within the first chapter I was wowed by the whole experience of this download.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Kapila says: "6 titles in the series so far"
    "Great Book and narration"
    Overall

    The book is great. I had read it before listening to it and I knew I wanted a download. I was pleased to find the wide range of voices used for feeling and variety.

  • The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

    One of the greatest treats in all world literature, this masterpiece from Mark Twain inspired a literary revolution. The novel offers both brilliant humor and tragedy as Huck and Jim explore the moral dilemmas of slavery and freedom. Huck, the narrator, is shrewd, ingenious, and literal; he reports on everything he sees, which allows the listener to experience the hypocrisy of "sivilization".

    Andrea says: "Terrific interpretion of an excellent story"
    "Simply enjoyable"
    Overall

    This is classixc I bought in hopes of being able to listen and just relax. I'm glad I did. Although I sometimes find I need to chuckle. There is excitement without anxiety. Great for me when I have had a stressful day.
    I find it so easy to listen to and so well read that it has been hard to recall if it were read by a team of people or just by one very talented individual in order to present such clearly developed characters through the sound of the voices.

  • The Old Man and the Sea

    The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway's most enduring works. Told in language of great simplicity and power, it is the story of an old Cuban fisherman, down on his luck, and his supreme ordeal, a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. Here Hemingway recasts, in strikingly contemporary style, the classic theme of courage in the face of defeat, of personal triumph won from loss.

    Dave says: "Truly a Classic"
    "Effective narration of a great little novel"
    Overall

    I read this book 25 years ago and cited it in a college paper about perseverence. It was a treat to experience this story again. I was moved by the narrators reading. He read it in such a way that was able to lay my emotional response on the story without being overpowered his. Even so his reading was rich and deep.

    G. K. Chesterton was a journalist, playwright, poet, biographer, novelist, essayist, literary commentator, editor, orator, artist, and theologian. Orthodoxy is his great apologia for the Christian faith, which was prompted by a serious attack in 1903 against Christianity by well-known newspaper editor Robert Blatchford.

    Brent says: "Thought provoking and entertaining"
    "Thought provoking and entertaining"
    Overall

    I bought the book after listening to it from the library years ago. (The British accent of the narrator is great). Chesterton provides guidance for thought on a whole host of topics, and he states his case in a most enjoyable fashion. I appreciate his expressions and vocabulary as well. When I found this title on Audible I jumped at the chance to get it!
