When the Holy Spirit is confined to creeds, the church becomes like a land with no water or a kite with no wind. In his life and writings, A.W. Tozer was insistent that the church reclaim a practical theology of the Holy Spirit - that it actually know him. The Counselor will help you cultivate sweet communion with God. Gifted at bringing lofty thoughts down low, Tozer explains clearly who the spirit is and what it means to know him. His words will leave you with a deep longing to be filled with the blessed spirit, to have joy, peace, life, and power in Him.

Classic Tozer

For someone who went to be with The Lord in 1963, Tozer has prophetic insight into both the church today and the movement of the Holy Spirit! He is one of few I go to in order to clear the air when it comes to Christian doctrine. His timeless insight will guide pilgrims till He comes to take us Home again!

Sir John Penlyon is planning to spend Christmas at his estate with his niece and his friend Danby, the closest thing he has to family since disowning his daughter years ago. (She eloped with the parson, who was, of course, penniless.) Danby suggests that at Christmastime the estate needs the presence of small children, and offers to find some - the “hirelings” - despite Sir John’s skepticism. Three children duly arrive, and the youngest, precocious four year-old Moppet, quickly endears herself to Sir John.

Mickey Haller gets the text, "Call me ASAP - 187," and the California penal code for murder immediately gets his attention. Murder cases have the highest stakes and the biggest paydays, and they always mean Haller has to be at the top of his game. When Mickey learns that the victim was his own former client, a prostitute he thought he had rescued and put on the straight and narrow path, he knows he is on the hook for this one. He soon finds out that she was back in LA and back in the life.

Celebrated crime master and two-time Edgar Award winner James Lee Burke returns with a gorgeously crafted, brutally resonant chronicle of violence along the Texas-Mexico border. Sheriff Hackberry Holland patrols a small Southwest Texas border town, meting out punishment and delivering justice in his small square of this magnificent but lawless land. When an alcoholic ex-boxer named Danny Boy Lorca begs to be locked up after witnessing a man tortured to death by a group of bandits, Hack and his deputy, Pam Tibbs, slowly extract the Indian man’s gruesome tale.

As the true horrors of the Third Reich began to be exposed immediately after World War II, the Nazi war criminals who committed genocide went on the run. A few were soon caught, including the notorious SS leader Heinrich Himmler. Others, however, evaded capture through a sophisticated Nazi organization designed to hide them. Among them were Josef Mengele, the “Angel of Death” who performed hideous medical experiments at Auschwitz; Martin Bormann, Hitler’s brutal personal secretary; Klaus Barbie, the cruel "Butcher of Lyon"; and perhaps the most awful Nazi of all: Adolf Eichmann.

O’Reilly Hits Another Homerun!
As with all of his Killing books, O’Reilly masters bringing to life the historical figures of the past in new and vivid pallet. I was also glad that O’Reilly narrated this book. Some of his other books have been narrated by others and though they were great, his voice adds something special to his own writing.

Tornadoes, cyclones, tsunamis… Weather can be deadly – especially when it strikes without warning. Millions of Americans could soon find themselves at the mercy of violent weather if the public data behind lifesaving storm alerts gets privatized for personal gain. In his first Audible Original feature, New York Times best-selling author and journalist Michael Lewis delivers hard-hitting research on not-so-random weather data – and how Washington plans to release it.

Free but a total waste of time!

I am glad that Audible offers these original audio books at no charge to subscribers but this work really was useless, non informative and had no point. It pretty much sucked as far as an audio book. How does one return a free book? For that matter how can I gain the over 2 hours of waiting to see if there was any point to this original. It would have never sold one copy had it not been a free pick. Horrible, horrible, horrible waste of my time!

A Blast From the Past

The book was entertaining. The storyline weak as it attempted to bring back a new storyline from Season 1 1966. The narrator, Robert Petcoff however kept the story entertaining. He is a fabulous narrator and has a real knack for the voices of all of the characters. This is evident all the way to Balock who was played by Ron Howard’s Brother Clint Howard when he was a little boy playing Balock! The voice and timing was on the mark and well done!
