    An absolute treat for the heart and mind, these 24 lectures demonstrate how to master the art of storytelling, offering insight into the process of crafting and delivering a tale to enhancing the stories you tell everyday-to your children at bedtime, in your conversational anecdotes, and in your presentations at work. Teachers, lawyers, clergy, coaches, parents, and anyone who wants to understand the power of stories to capture hearts and minds will benefit from these lessons.

    Where does The Art of Storytelling: From Parents to Professionals rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best audiobooks I have listened to, and I try to choose books that are going to be informative, helpful, and entertaining.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Professor Harvey and her host of helpers were great to listen to, as they get into character it helped me to know how to get in character


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was moved throughout the book but the opening story does what an opening story ought to do, it takes something simple, and makes it seem as big as the world and as big as you and I.

  • The Courage to Be Protestant: Truth-Lovers, Marketers, and Emergents in the Postmodern World

    It takes no courage to sign up as a Protestant. These words begin this bold work - the culmination of David Wells' long-standing critique of the evangelical landscape. But to live as a true Protestant - that's another matter. This audiobook is a jeremiad against new versions of Evangelicalism - the Marketing and Emergent Churches - and a call to return to the historic faith, one defined by Reformation solas (grace, faith, and scripture alone) and to a reverence for doctrine.

    David says: "Great audible book please more of David Wells"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is not a new book but a book that needs to be looked at frequently by those who claim fundamentalism as their theological and practical point of view. The book is as relevant now as when it was written, and in many minds more relevant.

  • The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 7 mins)

    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    Russell B. Ivey says: "Great book bad audio"
    "A book everyone should attempt to digest."

    What made the experience of listening to The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People the most enjoyable?

    This book is set up in a very productive way, there are such clear lines of progression that you can focus on one section without jumping accidentally into others.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People?

    The most important thing about this book is that it makes so much sense and it is observable and therefore testable. You see it in others, but the clincher is, if you are open enough, that you can see it in yourself.
