    With case histories and the results of in-depth mind-body research, Dr. Sarno describes how patients recognize the emotional roots of their back pain and sever the connections between mental and physical pain - and how, just by listening to this program, you may start recovering from back pain today!

    "Healing Back Pain"
    Overall

    A very thought provoking book which made me ponder the nature of my back pain. I have to admit that since taking the advice of Dr. Sarno I have had considerably less back pain than before. It's not a hard process, rather a change of attitude.
    I'm glad I read this book.

    Airline Captain Connor Evans has nearly forgotten that stormy weekend in Hawaii nearly ten years ago when he broke the greatest promise of all. Now Connor has the perfect life with his wife, Michele, and their two daughters, and the secret of that long-ago time is his own. But an ocean away, a flight attendant is raising her young son by herself when the plane she's working on crashes into the Pacific. Her will is very clear about one thing.

    Rachelle says: "You think you hit the bottom in life? Now what?"
    "Great Christian novel"
    Overall

    This is a great novel for Christian listeners who like God-centred fiction with a well thought-out storyline and true to life characters. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this novel and having been close to someone who went through a similar situation, I thought Karen Kingsbury captured the emotions in a very realistic way. It was beautifully narrated and I was sad to finish the story.
    Non-Christians would probably find the emphasis on a relationship with God rather heavy going and even confusing at times but I enjoyed every minute of it.

    The Furious Longing of God is the latest tour de force from beloved author and ragamuffin, Brennan Manning. Hold on tight as you discover the most powerful force in the universe: God's furious longing for you. There is nowhere God won't go to find us. No country too distant. No terrain too treacherous. No risk too great. It is a Father's search for His lost son, His lost daughter. And there are no boundaries to where His love will take Him in order to find us, embrace us, and carry us home!

    cynthia says: "The Furious Longing of Humanity"
    "Love Manning's honesty"
    Overall

    My title says it all really. I love the way Brennan is so honest and lays his life out for his readers to relate to. This is a little treasure and I'll be listening to it again when I need to be encouraged about God's love for me. Thanks Brennan!

    We have a lot to sort through on any given day. A whole lot to navigate over the course of a week or a month. All day long we are making choices. How do we know what to do?

    We have two options.

    We can trudge through on our own, doing our best to figure it all out. Or, we can walk with God - as in, learn to hear his voice. Really. He offers to speak to us and guide us. Every day. It is an incredible offer. To accept that offer is to enter into an adventure filled with joy and risk, transformation and breakthrough. And more clarity than we ever thought possible.

    Robert says: "Hit the mark"
    "Over the top!"
    Overall

    I have read John Eldridge's books before and enjoyed them but felt in this one that he went over the top in some ways. I listened to it to the end but only persevered because I didn't want to think I'd wasted my credit. Although I am charasmatic by doctrine, I had reservations about some of his spiritual observations and would be wary of reading any further books by him. Shame really as I loved 'Epic'.

    Mae Demaray is a cheerful widow who delights in helping others and spending time with her young grandson, Sammy. She would do anything for the lively little boy. But when Sammy suffers a fatal accident at her house, all joy and security flee from Mae's life. Mae's family urges her to rely on God's mercy and love, but Mae cannot forgive herself. Instead, Mae chooses a path that will lead her to question all she believes.

    Janet says: "Easy to Listen to and yet thought provoking."

    I listened to this book whilst on holiday and found it a good, easy to 'read' story. If you want something that keeps moving, doesn't lose you with heavy detail and yet deals with realistic emotions of people like you and me, then I think you'll enjoy listening to this book.

    In Everybody's Normal Till You Get to Know Them, teacher and best-selling author John Ortberg zooms in on the things that make community tick. You'll get a thought-provoking look at God's heart, at others, and at yourself. Even better, you'll gain wisdom and tools for drawing closer to others in powerful, impactful ways. With humor, insight, and a gift for storytelling, Ortberg shows how community pays tremendous dividends in happiness, health, support, and growth.

    Jim says: "Disappointed"
    "Not his best book"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the first half of this book more than the second half. I found myself losing interest the more I listened to it. However, I like John Ortberg's writings and his 'easy to listen to' manner is always attractive.

    The remarkable response of the Amish Community to the horrific shooting of 10 schoolgirls at Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania in October 2006 stunned the larger world. Amish Grace tells the incredible story of this community's reaction to the senseless shooting and explores its profoundly countercultural practice of forgiveness.

    R. Whitten says: "Turned heartbreak into hope for me"
    "A great read!!"
    Overall

    As a Christian, the subject of grace intrigues me. Although I do not embrace the amish doctrines, I found this book encouraging and a fascinating explanation of how the Amish treat such a tragedy as the killing of these children.
    It helped me in my own walk with God to understand the grace He offers His children.

    A New Kind of Christian's conversation between a pastor and his daughter's high school science teacher reveals that wisdom for life's most pressing spiritual questions can come from the most unlikely sources.

    Nick says: "One of a Kind and Challenging."
    "Christians beware!"
    Overall

    If you are a Christian, serious about pursuing your walk with God and not falling into error, this is a book that you will read with caution and discernment. I found it interesting to read what the 'emerging church' believes in fiction format and found myself agreeing with much of what the author is revealing. However, (and this is a big one) all error contains some truth and the overall message of this book is that Jesus is not the ONLY way to the Father. Read it carefully and compare it to scripture before you make your final decision about what it is teaching.

    One of America’s most popular authors, Jodi Picoult has earned a reputation for crafting riveting, topical fiction. In House Rules she examines how being different can have dire consequences. Teenager Jacob Hunt has Asperger’s syndrome. A forensic science wizard, he follows his scanner to show up at crime scenes and give law enforcement officials his advice.

    Charlotte says: "Great book until the ending"
    "Another great Picoult read!"
    Overall

    Again JP draws us into a fascinating plot of human life. She very cleverly opens up the minds of the characters involved - I especially found the thoughts of Jacob and Emma very informative and lifelike. One thing I wish JP would change is her regular use of bad language - which seems to increase as the book proceeds. A good book doesn't need to be peppered with 'f' words to add to it's attractiveness.

    "There is a church not too far from us that recently added a $25-million addition to their building.Our local newspaper ran a front-page story not too long ago about a study revealing that one in five people in our city lives in poverty. This is a book about those two numbers."

    Gabriel says: "A peek into the modern church"
    "Challenging and thought provoking"
    Overall

    Not a comfortable read!! Not for those who are happy with a comfortable westernised style of Christianity but it resonated with me and I wasn't surprised by the contents as I listen to Rob Bell sermons and know his heart for the under-privileged.
    I liked the informality of him and Don Golden taking it in turns to read this book - it was like sitting with them having a conversation in my living room.
    I would recommend it to those searching for a deeper walk with God.
