I love theology, the classics, biographies, and bussiness books. I sometimes even enjoy a little modern fiction,

  • Simply Jesus: A New Vision of Who He Was, What He Did, and Why He Matters

    “Jesus - the Jesus we might discover if we really looked,” explains Wright, “is larger, more disturbing, more urgent than we had ever imagined. We have successfully managed to hide behind other questions and to avoid the huge, world-shaking challenge of Jesus’s central claim and achievement. It is we, the churches, who have been the real reductionists. We have reduced the kingdom of God to private piety; the victory of the cross to comfort for the conscience; Easter itself to a happy, escapist ending after a sad, dark tale. Piety, conscience, and ultimate happiness are important...."

    I have read most everything N.T. Wright has written so I'm a huge fan. Having said that I think this is his clearest Christology yet. Having reflected on Jesus and his ministry in such amazing books as The Challenge of Jesus, Jesus and the Victory of God, and When God became King you would think what could Wright possibly add to what he has already written? In Simply Jesus Wright brings together all of the insights of his previous works in one concise read. This is a book I will listen to many times. I would recommend this book for anyone who is wanting to grow in their understanding of Jesus, his ministry, his life, death, and resurrection. It is a book that will both challenge those who might be unfamiliar with the life of Jesus and those who have been following him for decades.

    The narration was top notch. The narrator's voice made you think you might actually be listening to Wright's voice over a cup of coffee or a spot of tea in Wright's case.

  • What Makes an Effective Executive

    This concise audiobook is based on Mr. Drucker's summary of The Effective Executive done at the request of Harvard Business Review and is now one of their best selling published works. This article is a perfect way to learn about the subject broadly in a short period of time. Unlike many articles of this kind, summarizing a book's contents, this article was written and crafted by the author himself.

    Wow! Many tried to tell me that a pastor should have major in business. I didn't believe them and find myself regretting that decision often. However with Audible I've been giving myself a business education. I found every sentence of this very powerful read to be chocked full of meaning and insight. A must read for anyone who wants to be more professional no matter what their business.

    Short enough to be listened to in its entirety while taking the kids to one of their many activities.

    The Fellowship of the Ring, the first volume in the trilogy, tells of the fateful power of the One Ring. It begins a magnificent tale of adventure that will plunge the members of the Fellowship of the Ring into a perilous quest and set the stage for the ultimate clash between the powers of good and evil.

    Story

    Fellowship is my favorite of the trilogy and Rob's reading is off the charts. He uses different voices for each of the characters. I never found myself zoning out during his reading. When my family takes long road trips we always pick a book to listen to and this is one of their favorites.

    The Challenge of Jesus poses a double-edged challenge: to grow in our understanding of the historical Jesus within the Palestinian world of the first century, and to follow Jesus more faithfully into the postmodern world of the 21st century.

    If you don't have the time to read Wright's more scholarly work Jesus and the Victory of God then The Challenge of Jesus contains all of the incredible ideas and insights that the larger work contains but in a much more accessible version.

    I will listen to this book many times.

    In honor of the 50th anniversary of C. S. Lewis' death, celebrated Oxford don Dr. Alister McGrath presents us with a compelling and definitive portrait of the life of C. S. Lewis, the author of the well-known Narnia series. For more than half a century, C. S. Lewis’ Narnia series has captured the imaginations of millions. In C. S. Lewis - A Life, Dr. Alister McGrath recounts the unlikely path of this Oxford don, who spent his days teaching English literature to the brightest students in the world and his spare time writing.

    Story

    This biography gives us a very human look at a man trying to follow Jesus. That over simplifies what I want to say. C.S. Lewis lived a very complicated life. In his life you see the broken nature of humanity and the sin nature that all those of us who follow Jesus struggle with. Yet in spite of his contradictions, or maybe precisely because of them, God uses this man in an incredibly powerful manner. I found hope in the fact that if God can use Lewis in spite of his many struggles he could use me as well.

    I've been following Jesus for over 26 years and Mere Christianity was the second "Christian book" I read after deciding to be a Christ follower. Since that time I've read almost everything he has written. Lewis' books have had an indescribable influence on my Christian life. Understanding a little more about his life just makes his written words all the more powerful.

    I'm also a huge Tolkien fan and though I knew Tolkien was influential in C.S. Lewis' conversion to see how instrumental Lewis was in the Lord of the Rings was a treat. This is well worth the listen.
