Internationally renowned psychiatrist, Viktor E. Frankl, endured years of unspeakable horror in Nazi death camps. During, and partly because of his suffering, Dr. Frankl developed a revolutionary approach to psychotherapy known as logotherapy. At the core of his theory is the belief that man's primary motivational force is his search for meaning.

Everyone loves a good spy story, but most of the ones we hear are fictional. That's because the most dangerous and important spycraft is done in secret, often without anyone even noticing. In Survive Like a Spy, best-selling author and former CIA officer Jason Hanson takes the listener deep inside the world of espionage, revealing true stories and expert tactics from real agents engaged in life-threatening missions around the world.

Mary DiNunzio has been slaving away for the past eight years trying to make partner in her cutthroat Philadelphia law firm. She's too busy to worry about the crank phone calls she's been getting, until they fall into a sinister pattern. The phone rings as soon as she gets to work then as soon as she gets home. Mary can't shake the sensation that someone is watching her, following her every move.

If you're looking for a Grisham thriller, this doesn't quite cut it. A decent story, but much more about personal drama and romance than legal thrills.

A movie can only offer so much of one's story and there's so much more story here. Bart's bio and the mission of Mercy Me are truly God-saturated events that point to the work of Jesus Christ on the Cross. So much redemption for these folks but a redemption that can be found in all of us. I loved diving deeper into this story of how God orchestrates every detail.

This isn't the author's fault, but many suggested this as a legal thriller in the vein of John Grisham. It's not. The main character is a lawyer but there's not much law or thrill in this one. The writing is decent and plot interesting. Just OK.
