A Signature Performance: Elijah Wood becomes the first narrator to bring a youthful voice and energy to the story, perhaps making it the closest interpretation to Twain’s original intent.

I read this having cheated my way through 10th grade literature, to see what I missed. It was great. I would read it soon, though, because in our politically correct society books like this and Uncle Tom's Cabin, as important as they are in literature and history will soon be publicly banished.

Pete Banning was Clanton's favorite son, a returning war hero, the patriarch of a prominent family, a farmer, a father, a neighbor, and a faithful member of the Methodist church. Then one cool October morning in 1946, he rose early, drove into town, walked into the church, and calmly shot and killed the Reverend Dexter Bell.

We bought this to listen to in the car on a long trip. It keep us awake. The story is well told but the storyline seems a bit far fetched. I prefer endings that come to some sort of happy resolution. This one is probably more realistic in the final chapters, but doesn't leave you feeling good about fallen mankind.

David Limbaugh, the New York Times bestselling author of Jesus on Trial and The Emmaus Code, now approaches the question of Jesus Christ's divinity - In what sense was Jesus God? How do we know? - with the same precise, methodical form of enquiry he has employed in his career as lawyer and law professor.

I hesitated to get this book because it is written and was promoted by Rush Limbaugh, the author's brother. I wish I had read it two years ago when I first heard of it. I will definitely listen again. David Limbaugh's research is thorough; regarding the subject matter, but also the subtle, but important, distinctions differentiating the various Christian denominations. I learned a lot and many times felt as if I was there, a part of this most important history. My thanks to our good LORD and to the author.

A brilliant stylist known for an uncompromising honesty that challenges conventional wisdom at every turn, Krauthammer has for decades dazzled audiences with his keen insight into politics and government. Now, finally, the best of Krauthammer's intelligence, erudition, and wit are collected in one volume. Things That Matter also features several of Krauthammer's major path-breaking essays - on bioethics, on Jewish destiny, and on America's role as the world's superpower - that have profoundly influenced the nation's thoughts and policies.

A book many Americans should read. We will miss Krauthammer’s intellect and dry wit. Who will God raise up to replace this calm voice of reason in the discourse of politics?
