James Webb, author of Fields of Fire, the classic novel of the Vietnam War - and a former U.S. Senator; Secretary of the Navy; recipient of the Navy Cross, Silver Star and Purple Heart as a combat Marine; and a self-described "military brat" - has written an extraordinary memoir of his early years, "a love story - love of family, love of country, love of service" in his words.
"Inspiring and full of hope for our country"
Father Peyton of the Holy Cross Fathers wanted to inspire his country with a radio program. Footing the expense of the show himself, he arranged for some of the biggest names in radio and film to donate their services, and for a network to provide the broadcast time. The series that resulted featured heartwarming stories for audiences nationwide. The commercial breaks were filled only with an earnest, non-sectarian appeal for family prayer, reminding listeners that "The family that prays together stays together."
"A MUST HAVE!!"
The Listening Book is a thought-provoking and beautifully written challenge to the way in which we live our lives in a complex world. Through a set of parable-like short stories, Webb offers us an innovative and creative insight into God's word and, while being engaging and captivating throughout, the stories never lose their subtlety and charm.
"Interesting parallel to the Bible"
The Second Listening Book is a collection of 27 more tales of the unexpected. These short stories each demonstrate a different facet of the ups and downs of life's experiences; a Christian perspective to the joys and struggles of existence through the medium of beautifully illustrated parables.
