I really enjoyed this and profited from Scott Hahn's accessible and easy going style. Don't shy away if you are not Catholic--about 2/3's is not Catholic-specific and would be an excellent review of common sense Christianity for just about anyone. Well worth my time!
The reviews for this book seemed to be quite wide-ranging--so I purchased with some trepidation. I went into it with a basic working knowledge of the subject matter and still very much enjoyed and learned from the content. So, I found it to be well worth it.
AA-1025 Available from Tan (I believe). Further info on the deliberate Communist infiltration of the church. Also "Staziland" which gives ample insight into methods and the general ubiquitousness of the communist intellegence services.
The reading is very three dimensional - he brings good emphasis and emotion to the text.
The level of cooperation with the communists is enough to make anybody cringe - and there were so many examples of this over and over again in the book.
Yes, I would recommend, and especially for those who enjoy sailing and all things Naval. This veteran of the Navy and avid sailor certainly appreciated it. I think it would be good enough to satisfy the average land lubber, but certainly the appeal would be strongest for the nautically minded.
It was great to guess along with the characters as to the activities and intentions of the Germans, also, it fleshes out background strategic details of WWI naval history that continue to fascinate.
Certainly all the sailing and nautical details that permeated the entire book.
This is a tale that spins off from the Silmarillion - from the ages before LOTR. If you like that, you'll like this. It is a tragic tale, finished off in the editing by his son and literary executor, Christopher, that contains the full measure of Tolkien's mastery of the mythical genre. If you like Tolkien this would be required reading.
Christopher Lee's performance is powerful and moving. His reading of Tolkein's many tough-to-pronounce names is carefully done and a pleasure to listen to. I was really pleased by the narration.
