    The parables and lessons of the New Testament resonate through much of our religious, literary, and cultural history. Written by the disciples and contemporaries of Jesus Christ, this work is a source of wisdom and solace for millions around the world. It includes the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, which record the life and teachings of Christ, as well as the Book of Acts, Revelation, and other fundamental biblical writings.

    R. says: "Well Worth The Purchase"
    "Excellent Book."
    Overall

    Wow, in less than one day you can listen to the entire Bible. I don't agree with everything that is stated in this book but overall it's an excellent book. What was valid several thousand years ago is not necessarily valid these days.

    When Autobiography of a Yogi first appeared in 1946, it was acclaimed as a landmark work in its field. The New York Times hailed it as "a rare account". Newsweek pronounced it "fascinating". The San Francisco Chronicle declared, "Yogananda presents a convincing case for yoga, and those who 'came to scoff' may remain 'to pray." Today it is still one of the most widely read and respected books ever published on the wisdom of the East.

    D says: "Spiritually Uplifting -- and entertaining!"
    "Great Content."
    Overall

    This author presents some old school thinking. I am not in agreement with some of what the author has to say, for example spiritual realms and the like. There may be a better scientific explanation for the same phenomenon's described in this book. Additionally, I did not like the satire on the accent though others may enjoy it.

  • The Universe in a Nutshell

    With characteristic exuberance, Stephen Hawking invites us to be fellow travelers on this extraordinary voyage through spacetime, as he seeks "to combine Einstein's General Theory of Relativity and Richard Feynman's idea of multiple histories into one complete unified theory that will describe everything that happens in the universe."

    Adam says: "Educational and yet fun."
    "Why are we here?"
    Overall

    The author makes an attempt to explain the various universal laws governing things that happen. It's a valiant effort but I am not sure how accurate it is at times. Some of it is speculation and guesses. This would be an excellent book to read in conjunction with the Bible and books of that sort. The three basic laws of Newton seem to hold more water than some of the recent theories.

    "Facing your fears."
    Overall

    The topic is good but the reading is medicore. Some of the fears and associated associated with terrorism are incorporated in this audio book. It's a little long winded at times.

    This book will show you methods for overcoming your fears.

    The Dalai Lama analyzes a rare text by ninth-century Indian Buddhist Kamalashila - a key to all Buddhist scripture - in this elegant, accessible explanation of the principles of meditation.

    "Learn to Meditate."
    Overall

    If you don't know anything about meditation, then this book will get you started. There are some contradictions in this book depending on your thinking process but it's really easy to follow.

    If you've ever felt there was something holding you back in life, ruining your plans and stopping you from being who you want to be, you were right. The fact is, there is a single source of all your problems, stress, unhappiness and self-doubt. It's called the Reactive Mind - and Dianetics will help you get rid of it and become more you. With 20 million copies in dozens of languages, Dianetics has remained a bestseller for more than 50 years.

    David says: "Around and around we go."
    "Very good content."
    Overall

    Dianetics covers some new concepts and really breaks away from the Freudian analysis of things. I don't necessearily agree with everything presented in this audio book but overall it really has very good content. The best thing is that someone has taken the time to read and record this very long book.

    The search for higher truth must be conducted in the midst of the forces of life, with all its demands and seductions. So teaches The Bhagavad Gita, an ancient text that has been called the quintessence of the spirituality of India. In it, the great warrior Arjuna contemplates the meaning of life, just moments before entering the battlefield. "Why do I exist? Why should I fight against my loved ones? And where shall I go after I die?" he asks himself in search for knowledge of the Absolute.

    Claudia Crowley says: "Hot stuff!!"
    "Great Audio."
    Overall

    This is a great format to listen to the Bhagavad Gita. I sincerely enjoyed it.
