This is an amazing story! Unbelievable how she reacts to the people around her. She is my new hero.

If you have to read the Aeneid this will help tremendously!

I listened to this to help me in a World Literature class. It gave me a huge boost in the class. Also, it explains a lot of how it refers to Homer and Roman culture. I appreciated the Aeneid more after listening to this.

I really did NOT like this one. First, if you are in a relationship with someone would you want to talk to the ex trying to break you up? This book reads more like a jaded lover than anything else. Who wants to hear anyone complain for 4 hours? Second, there are theology issues that are completely false from what the Bible teaches. Third, the whole book is theory and should not be taken as truth. Some parts seemed more like a political soapbox than Christian behavior. Finally, the Bible is never even quoted the whole book. Very disappointed.

Bonhoeffer knew. This book is a fascinating look into the history of Germany during WWII. It gives a unique perspective of one pastor warning of the danger of the Nazi party and then faced with actively betraying the country he loves in order to save it from a mad man. This book explains why some did nothing while Bonhoeffer risked it all.

I would recommend this book for anyone interested in the origin of life. Meyer makes an extremely good case for the Intelligent Design hypothesis. This is not just all hype & no meat, he goes into several leading theories and makes a good argument for why Intelligent Design is the best based on current knowledge. Even if you disagree, this book would at least give you an understanding of why some scientists believe in it and what critical points would have to be explained to over come their conclusions. Great read in my opinion.

The Author left out all the good stuff that's in the book. The book is ok and the doctrine is sound, but the audiobook was boring. This author should have read the whole book. How much more energy did it take to edit out all the stories than if he had just read the whole thing? Makes no sense to me why someone would butcher their own hard work. Also Ken, if you redo the audiobook, leave out the music, I was not a fan.

Second Best book I ever read.

If you are a Christian this is a great book that explains what Jesus did and our response to him. If you love or have been confused by the book of Romans then Nee gives a good explanation of Christ and our relationship with him.
If you are not a Christian this book might help you understand more about why Christians see Jesus as the central figure in their faith and how they interpret what the cross and resurrection are about.
