    Marianne Williamson lectures throughout the world on A Course in Miracles, a self-study system of spiritual psychotherapy contained in three books. She teaches the basic principles of the Course and discusses their application to daily life. On Being in Light, Marianne encourages you to get in touch with your inner self by developing a profound understanding of concepts such as self-forgiveness, self-esteem, your authentic nature, vulnerability, spiritual enlightenment, and much more.

    If you could sum up Being in Light in three words, what would they be?

    Clear, easy, soulmedicine.


    What other book might you compare Being in Light to and why?

    Return to Love. Similar in concepts. Enlightening, real for most people and the challenges we all face.


    Which character – as performed by Marianne Williamson – was your favorite?

    Herself


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

    No... You need to have time to give your full attention and focus. Baby steps for big, long lasting change and spiritual growth.


    Any additional comments?

    Marianne Williamson is for everyone! Those who may be wondering about spiritual awakening, inner peace and problem solving; and those who have been "on their path" for some time. She is real. Her messages are real. I recommend this book.

  • Jesus, Interrupted: Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible

    Picking up where Bible expert Bart Ehrman's New York Times best seller, Misquoting Jesus, left off, Jesus, Interrupted addresses the larger issue of what the New Testament actually teaches...and it's not what most people think. This is the book that pastors, educators, and anyone interested in the Bible have been waiting for, a clear and compelling account of the central challenges we face when attempting to reconstruct the life and message of Jesus.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I expected this to be along the lines of a PBS story, revealing things that are not common. I expected to learn about the books that did not make it to the bible, but are in the Vatican Library. I didn't expect to hear simple contradictions that really are easily argued on both sides... very much a let down.


    Has Jesus, Interrupted turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Have you listened to any of Jason Culp’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No

  • Water for Elephants

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena live, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge....

    Would you try another book from Suzanne Collins and/or Carolyn McCormick?

    yes


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    This last book was not as enjoyable as the first two. The first two, I could not put down. This one I wanted to fast forward to get to the end..and then the end was a little disappointing.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    You definately need to finish the series, because the first two leave you hanging. This book makes you feel satisfied enough... don't need to wonder anymore about the Mocking Jay.. it was OK, but not as good as the first two.
