  • Letting Go of God

    Story
    (451)

    Julia Sweeney says she was a "happy Catholic girl" when, one day, she walked into church and signed up for a Bible-study course. "What an eye opener that was!" she says. Equally comedic and insightful, Letting Go of God is Sweeney's brilliant one-woman show about her struggle with her faith.

    Mark says: "A Brilliant Personal Journey of Discovery"
    "A fun narration of a trip toward atheism"
    Overall

    This is a one-woman monologue of a trip toward atheism. It's marvelously funny and worth downloading even if you're not interested in the subject matter per se. I myself believe in God and wasn't swayed in the least by her story/argument, so don't be afraid to listen to this if you're a believer. It will give you insight into how the other side thinks. If you're a secular humanist or skeptic, you'll love it!

  • St. Thomas Aquinas: The Giants of Philosophy

    Story

    St. Thomas Aquinas is known for producing history's most complete system of Christian philosophy. In the late 13th century, this quiet, reflective Dominican scholar combined the work of Aristotle with Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and pagan thought to reconcile reason and faith. For Thomas, intellectual knowledge is a sign of the spirituality that energizes the human center. He believed we can know that God exists, but not what God is like.

    "Mostly on the Summa"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this audiobook. I was expecting a lot more biography, but what I got instead was a summary of several parts of the Summa Theologica, Aquinas's major work. What was covered was mainly Aquinas's argument for What is God? I found it fascinating and wished there were more -- a lot more. I was disappointed when it ended. This is a book for the philosophically inclined. It is not a book for somebody looking for a mere biography of Thomas. But as philosophy of religion, it's great!
