    Millions of Christians have struggled with how to reconcile God's love and God's judgment: Has God created billions of people over thousands of years only to select a few to go to heaven and everyone else to suffer forever in hell? Is this acceptable to God? How is this "good news"? Author, pastor, and innovative teacher Rob Bell presents a deeply biblical vision for rediscovering a richer, grander, truer, and more spiritually satisfying way of understanding heaven, hell, God, Jesus, salvation, and repentance.

    Paula says: "Easy reading, straight forward, life changing"
    "Typical Rob Bell"
    Overall

    I've listened to some of his books and watched several of his videos. He always has something to say that's worth listening to, pondering and praying about even if I ultimately don't wholly agree. The problem I have with his books is that he seems to go out of his way to use antagonistic language that makes it hard for me to get past the anger and listen to the points he's trying to make. I found it sometimes better to pause the book and start again later after I'd had time to let emotion cool and ponder what it was he might really be trying to say. He also covers a lot of biblical ground in this book so unless you're willing to simply take his word for it be prepared to do your homework!

    America's favorite bounty hunter is back behind the wheel in her fifth hilarious, high-octane thriller. Out of bail skippers and rent money, Stephanie Plum strikes out on her own. Okay, so a scumball blows himself to bits on her first day of policing a crack house, and the sheik she was chauffeuring steals the limo. But hey, nobody's perfect.

    Diane says: "Content dampened by quality of reading."
    "More a synopsis than a book"
    Overall

    Sadly many of the first books in this series are only available from audible in abridged format. This one in particular seems like there is so much cut out that you're left with more of a synopsis than a book. The fact that the reader sprints through it with hardly a pause between sentences simply makes it worse. The only real reason to listen is if you want a quick review of the story.
