Both of these books are excellent, and I loved the reading of them. "Abolition" deals with man's desire to step beyond the Creator's design and create "new" laws of nature. As Lewis points out, this must inevitably lead to the dehumanization of mankind.
IN "The Great Divorce," Lewis once again creates a masterful allegory and challenges us to consider that each decision made in this life has eternal consequences.
I highly recommend this audio book to anyone looking for a few hours of the deep and stimulating reading we've come to expect from C.S. Lewis.
While I do enjoy cycling, I am not a runner by any stretch of the imagination, yet I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Perhaps I enjoyed it in part because I had no preconceptions or biases, but I would wager that just about anyone would enjoy this provocative look into a concept that few athletes would dare to dream: barefoot running. Definitely a stimulating and interesting read.
Lawrence Wright did an excellent job tracking the development of al-qaeda, and the genesis of its philosophies. I learned a lot about Islam and the internal division and struggles within it, and appreciated the author's efforts to provide a fair and unbiased history beginning in the mid-20th century. Listeners will be delighted to find that Alan Sklar's reading of this book truly does it justice. This is perfect pairing not to be missed!
