This book gave a truly human perspective of the Westboro Baptist Church. It showed them from firsthand accounts to be a selfish, cruel, unbiblical, hateful, mean group of religious zealots. The religion of the WBC contains all of the pitfalls of Christianity when proper biblical interpretation is replaced by opinion and base human emotions. I was angry as I listened to this. I was cheering for Lauren Drain to be banished, because it was so terrible inside of the WBC. Give this book a try if you are at all interested in the pulse of American Religious life. A real eye opener.
Ravi Zacharias is a philosopher and genius. Our world needs more minds like his. He traces how God uses the problems we face in our lives to create a bigger picture.
God is always working in us, even when we cannot see it.
I fully recommend this book. One of Ravi's 5 best books!
The book is written by a Japanese Samurai from the 17th century. Yet the author was clearly was man of European ancestry doing a very thick accent.
The book itself was very enjoyable. But it took me a long time to get over the weird accent.
He goes book by book, explaining the biblical themes of each Chronicle of Narnia. He does a great job finding themes in each book and explaining how that theme applies to each character. Identity in The Horse and His Boy, Faith in Prince Caspian etc. It helped me appreciate the genius of CS Lewis even more!
No. Even though I love his enthusiasm, I do not like his writing style. He is a good speaker, but a weak writer.
I will listen to this multiple times. It was a short but solid overview of the stories of King Arthur and his Knights! Sean Bean brings the story to life!
He was Boromir, Odysseus and NEd Stark all over again! I bought the book simply because he narrated it, and I listened to it in one single drive! Great Narration!
Luchs does a great job of analyzing every angle of the business of football. From the impact of agents, to college coaches, to mock drafts. It was so incredible. He mentions REAL NFL players and has a boat-load of stories about what certain players did for money, and what players refused money! Like Champ Bailey.
It was awesome to hear about the work ethic that made him into the top WR ever! I didn't realize that he was a man so focused on integrity and honesty.
The book was wonderful, but not easy to listen too for long periods of time. It isn't so much of a story as a series of facts and mini anecdotes.
intelligent, un engaging, not colorful.
It was worth it. He was an amazing man.
This book has really made me think, and question why we do certain things in church. A must read for a thinking believer
