This audiobook's goal is to refresh knowledge we've forgotten, help us to make new discoveries, and exercise modes of thinking that are ordinarily neglected once our school days are behind us. Offering an escape from the daily grind to contemplate higher things, The Intellectual Devotional is a great way to awaken in the morning or to revitalize one's mind before retiring in the evening.

I cannot say enough good things about the Audiobooks in the Intellectual Devotional Series including this one: Revive Your Mind. Mr. Wyman & Ms. Litchfield share the narration duties alternating each lesson. This is not annoying (as i thought it might be) but rather keeps the book from being monotone and tune-out-able. I also must note that I really love both Wyman & Litchfield and seeing their names on other audiobooks influences my buying decision.
Narration dispensed with the Devotional is a collection of 3-7 minute lessons that are designed for listening to at 1 lesson per day with each day having its own theme. I cannot tell you how many times a topic will come up that I thought I knew about and 7 minutes later I'm gobsmacked to find I was either wrong or only knew a micron of the story. I listen to more than one per day but what is great about the way they break it up is this: it makes it the 100% BEST AUDIOBOOK AROUND to listen to whilst running errands! No waiting in your car to find a natural pause point.
WELL WORTH IT! My only complaint - there aren't any new ones! I wish they would come out with more...I've tried other similar series (don't know much about... etc) and they pale in comparison!
This book is not for those looking to be entertained. It's great if you want to learn things without spending 4 hours a week in a boring college class. Each topic is on one page. No need to get into the boooring details of history. This book tells you the important things and keeps it moving.
