    The acclaimed biography of the early church's greatest evangelist, the Apostle Paul. Master storyteller John Pollock makes Paul and his amazing story freshly alive, so that you can know the greatest apostle much as Luke and Timothy did as they traveled with him. As you listen, you'll sense Paul's motives, his aims and priorities; what mattered to him; and what he was willing to die for.

    I have actually read the book and the book I feel is better than the audio book

  • What the (Bleep) Just Happened?: The Happy Warrior's Guide to the Great American Comeback

    What the @$%&! just happened to America? That's the question that Monica Crowley, best-selling author, Fox News political analyst, columnist, and popular nationally syndicated radio host, asks - and answers - in this fast-paced, funny, and sharply argued tour of the country's disastrous years under Barack Obama, while sounding an exuberant call for the great American comeback. Monica offers a rollicking, high-octane, and hilarious view of the damage caused by Barack Obama's extremist agenda.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Monica is very easy to follow ,she has many facts as well as a well balanced arguments


    Which scene was your favorite?

    not one particular but multiple concerning the many promises politicians make about what they plan on doing but almost never do they achieve these promises


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book really was quite helpful in reviewing in-depth the rapidness in which our country has changed.. As a small businessman for a number of years I have taken on tremendous amounts of risk with long hours of hard work in hopes of achieving some type of success in attaining my goals. This book certainly talks about the American dream from the standpoint of hard work, dedication, good luck and risk-taking as the true foundations of American success


    Any additional comments?

    This book I felt was very evenhanded and it's analysis of politicians as well as political goals. It was quite helpful for me to have a complete overview of what has gone on the last few years all in one audio book.

  • Revelation

    Story
    (20)

    Dr. Creasy has noted on many occasions that the Bible—in its final, finished form—is a unified literary work that is linear in structure; its main character is God; its conflict is sin; and its theme is redemption. Viewing the Bible from this perspective, the curtain rises on our story in Genesis 1, and it falls in Revelation 22. From a literary perspective, Revelation is the final chapter in a sprawling 2,000 page, 66-chapter story.

    Story
    Would you listen to Revelation again? Why?

    Absolutely, this was a fantastic presentation of revelations. As matter of fact I may listen to this book every six months or so that as a Christian I can look forward to what's ahead with reassurance and with confidence. Since we as Christians believe in what's happened in the past as predicted through prophecy in the Old Testament how much more so is Revelations pointing toward the glorious return of Jesus


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Revelation?

    The discriptions of the visions and the difficulty in conveying the descriptions orally. After his explanation as to the difficulties in expressing visions into words it was much easier for me to think about what John actually may have seen. Also the descriptions of previous prophecies such as in Daniel and how these correlated with the vision of John.


    Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not heard the narrators performance in the past but certainly enjoyed this presentation


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Revelation the unveiling


    Any additional comments?

    Yes I really enjoyed this book from the standpoint that it is a book that can be listened to over and over again. Also there is so much historical as well as relational and easy to understand information that goes on in the book

    Throughout human history, certain drinks have done much more than just quench thirst. As Tom Standage relates with authority and charm, six of them have had a surprisingly pervasive influence on the course of history, becoming the defining drink during a pivotal historical period. A History of the World in 6 Glasses tells the story of humanity from the Stone Age to the 21st century through the lens of beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea, and cola.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A History of the World in 6 Glasses to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the book so cannot comment


    What did you like best about this story?

    There were so many different facts about the way that beverages had been consumed,made and enjoyed over the decades, centuries, and millennia. There were a lot of social/historical aspects of the drinks also that were fascinating. It gave me a new perspective on consuming beverages of all types and a much more thorough history that is behind each beverage


    What does Sean Runnette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I felt the audio book was quite entertaining and it was fun to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    I personally enjoyed this book tremendously. It had so many different fascinating aspects of the beverages that most of us consume in one form or another. It also pointed out a lot of the social aspects that were associated with each beverage and from now on it will be hard for me to consume any beverage without thinking about where it has come from and the history behind it.

    Again a really fun audio to listen to

    These selections from the many writings of Thomas Sowell over a period of half a century cover social, economic, cultural, legal, educational, and political issues. The sources range from Dr. Sowell’s letters, books, newspaper columns, and articles in both scholarly journals and popular magazines. The topics range from latetalking children to tax cuts for the rich, baseball, race, war, the role of judges, medical care, and the rhetoric of politicians.
