  • It's Not About Me

    There really is more to this life than you've been told. Since day one we've been urged to look out for number one. And since day one we've believed the lie, "It's all about me." Max Lucado sets our sights elsewhere: points us upward, and shows us how much our lives and relationships would change if we all took our place and played our parts. He'll show you how to bump your life off self-center and how to experience the life of purpose you were meant to have.

    Overall

    This book help me understand my purpose in life. Helped me understand why things happened in my life the way they did. I can say with a huge smile. "To Him be the Glory" I pray that every day of my life will find a way to glorify Him. He is worthy. I had to purchase the book just so I can write and remember all in this book. I listened to this book twice I have a strange feeling I'll be listing to it again and again.

  • Who Is This Man?: The Unpredictable Impact of the Inescapable Jesus

    Jesus' impact on our world is highly unlikely, widely inescapable, largely unknown, and decidedly double-edged. It is unlikely in light of the severe limitations of his earthly life; it is inescapable because of the range of impact; it is unknown because history doesn't connect dots; and it is doubled-edged because his followers have wreaked so much havoc, often in his name. He is history's most familiar figure, yet he is the man no one knows. His impact on the world is immense and non-accidental.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I don't have the words to explain how good this book it. AWESOME is an understatement.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was easy to listen to and It was very informative. The truth told about Jesus days and how that truth affects today is incredible. I sat in Awe (goose bumps, sometime tears) at every end of each chapter. The author is anointed by God. That is the only way he could have written this.


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

    Yes, I had to buy the book as well. Listening and reading, made it even harder for me to spread it out over 2 weeks, so I can study the book after listening to the chapter. I listened/read a chapter a day took a few days breaks on those days of breaks I thought about the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't even begin to tell anyone how awesome it is... They will just have to listen/read it for themselves. For those that don't believe in God/Jesus this is a great book to read. It may not make them 100% believers but it might just make them have more questions.

  • Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear

    Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear.They're talking layoffs at work, slowdowns in the economy, flare-ups in the Middle East, turnovers at headquarters, downturns in the housing market, upswings in global warming. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up a 100-year lease on the building next door and set up shop. Can you imagine your life without fear?

    Overall

    First of all I loved Daniel Butler (No Offense Max) He has the perfect reading voice. Thank you. The voice would could be the greatest but without awesome material it's just another story. I have One word WOW! Max Lucado is anointed. Thank you for letting our Awesome God use you. There were a lot of holes I did not know were in my belief of being fearless, This book filled a lot of those holes (if not all) with great answers. I love how the author meshes the word of God into our daily lives. One moment he's writing about some present day life, then next thing you know he's talking about Moises and how his story fits in. Incredible.

    I loved this audio so much I had to get the book too and listen to it again, then fill out the small group discussion guide. (One day I'm going to take a leap of faith and do a small group on this book). I don't think that will be the last time I'll Listen to it either.

    Here a couple more words to describe this book: OUTSTANDING, Awesome, enlightening, anointed, thought provoking, Bravo... I can go on and on....

    John Ortberg invites you to consider the incredible potential that awaits you outside your comfort zone. Out on the risky waters of faith, Jesus is waiting to meet you in ways that will change you forever, deepening your character and your trust in God. The experience is terrifying. It's thrilling beyond belief. It's everything you'd expect of someone worthy to be called Lord.

    Overall

    I love the way how John Ortberg challenges If you trust God do something religious and get out of the boat. Jesus is still looking for people to do this. It did not just end when Peter got out of the boat. What am I focusing on? Jesus or the storm. What a great book.
