    This unabridged audio version brings to life an exciting combination of the seven basic elements that make up the print version. Musical accents subtly underscore the beginning of each chapter. The meditation and prayer elements, with six different readers, both men and women, including Archbishop Donald Wuerl, bring the text to life.

    Charles says: "Enjoyable and Enlightening Listening!"
    "90% Scripturally Correct"
    Overall

    It is very beneficial to listen to the catechism as most of it is very edifying, though there are some sections that exaggerate Mary's significance, and the doctrine of purgatory is from the pagan community. It found it's way into the church because the converts did not know scriptures, did not have access to them until later on, and retained the popular secular society beliefs such as the very common belief in purgatory. The matter of praying to saints was also because of ignorance and desperation for help. Fortunately, the church has recently come to greater scriptural understanding of the truth of what Christ has done instead of clinging to the pagan concepts, though some people hang onto the pagan concepts because they have not studied the scriptures. The Holy Spirit is sent to lead us into all truth and He is always working in the church to do just that. For the most part, this audiobook is edifying to one's spirit.

  • The Gospel According to Jesus: What Is Authentic Faith?

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 28 mins)

    What does Jesus mean when he says, "Follow me"? Twenty years ago, pastor-teacher and best-selling author John MacArthur tackled that seemingly simple question and wrote a book that has since taken its place among Christianity's classics. This 20th anniversary edition of MacArthurs provocative book has been revised and contains one new chapter.

    John says: "This message needs to be heard"
    "Reveals The Teaching of Jesus on Conversion"
    Overall

    This audiobook is focusing on the matter of the Lordship of Christ being preeminent when one seeks salvation. Rev. MacArthur points out that one cannot get saved and make Jesus Lord later, He is Lord over one's life when one comes for salvation, or it is an indication that one is not turning one's life over to Him. Such a position would mean that one is not then translated out of the Kingdom of Darkness and into the Kingdom of Christ as one would be coming with reservations and not really to repent and convert. Instead, one would be seeking something with an ulterior motive, a somewhat deceptive action of seeking something without a change, without being convinced that Christ is the Way, the Truth and The Life, but just a way to avoid judgment and punishment for sin. He points out that Jesus requires that one be translated out of the Kingdom of Darkness and into His Kingdom, or one is not save.

    Overall

    Each day Dodie Osteen gives a short teaching that will encourage you to trust in God though you feel defeated and beaten up by the calamities of life. She was herself, healed of liver cancer when given two weeks to live. It took nine months to totally be free of it. She had to take her healing by faith as the doctors could offer her nothing. Her husband, the late John Osteen was a famous faith teacher, an ordained Baptist minister who came to faith for his daughter's healing of cerebral palsy and his own heredous back problem that gave him in excruciating pain. The book will give you the scriptural foundation for faith as well as the inspiration.

  • Morning and Evening

    There are two readings per day, one designed for the morning and the other designed for the evening. His writings not only will affect the day, but the refreshing devotions are intended for eternal impact. Wonderfully narrated by James Adams, this outstanding devotional is worthy of daily listening. Spurgeon's best known work comes alive through nuanced and meaningful narration, almost as if Spurgeon himself was encouraging us in matters faith, love and devotion to God.

    Overall

    Morning and Evening by C. H. Spurgeon is very edifying listening. He knows the scriptures very well and has much wisdom. He uses Elizabethan Language and one must pay close attention to benefit from the depth of widom laced in his silver-tonged style. He is very learned and very descriptive with words, that with the "thous," and "thees," make it necessary to listen closely, but if you do, it will be very worth your while. You have to think with him as you listen as he loads his words with great depth of meaning. The book contains a short teaching for the morning and evening of each day, so it is not hard to focus. The spiritual depth gives one a divine connection where one is lifted above the natural realm to where the Holy Spirit can feed your spirit.
