    Have we been taught to discount the veracity and deeper meaning of our emotional resonance with the world around us? In The Abolition of Man, C.S. Lewis looks at the curriculum of the English "prep school" and begins to wonder if this subliminal teaching has indeed produced a generation who discount such a nature.

    Joseph says: "Two great (but quite different) gems from CSL"
    "Great Divorce is now 1 of my favorite C.S. Lewis!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Abolition of Man & The Great Divorce to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of them, narrator captured the dialogue very well


    What does Robert Whitfield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His accents and different voices for all of the characters is what really made this audio book from "good" to "great."


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I don't know about extreme; I did say I chuckled quite a bit as I followed along in the book, and listened to the narrator read it.

    A follow up to the profound message of Crazy Love, Pastor Francis Chan offers a compelling invitation to understand, embrace, and follow the Holy Spirit's direction in our lives. "In the name of the Father, the Son, and ... the Holy Spirit." We pray in the name of all three, but how often do we live with an awareness of only the first two?

    Steven says: "A wakeup call ALL Christians need"
    "Good book on topic that doesn't get much attention"

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

    Not necessarily; I didn't want to fly through the material, but wanted to closely pay attention to what the author had to say.
