I thank God for anybody anywhere who is pointing people to the mysteries of God. But those people would all tell you to think long and hard about what they are saying and doing and creating.

As a Christian, I sometimes feel burned out and exhausted by institutional Christianity in the States. Rob did a great job of getting me back to thinking about Jesus, Scripture, and my place in society as a believer in a fresh way, a way unashamed to ask questions, to not have all the answers, but to seek them. It's that journey, as he highlights in his book, that is our calling and place of service. Sure, I didn't agree with everything written, but c'mon, does anyone ever agree with another person 100%? He adds to the discussion, and does so well.

Hoping to stem the growing tide of unrest, Chancellor Valorum convenes an emergency trade summit on the planet Eriadu. A group of Jedi Knights is sent to protect the delegates from possible terrorist attack, but what should have been a simple peacekeeping assignment turns out to be a mission into the heart of a political firestorm. For shadowy forces are at work, pulling the strings in a bid for power that could leave the Republic reeling. And the chancellor is only the most visible victim.

I found this to be a very fun listen. I'm a bit of a Star Wars geek, so I'm a little biased, but I thought it was fun and well thought out. I wish Ep. 1 had incorporated some of the political info found in this book.

Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy are returning to boarding school when they are summoned from the dreary train station (by Susan's own magic horn) to return to the land of Narnia, the land where they had ruled as kings and queens and where their help is desperately needed.

This was a great "read", and a great Narnia experience. The naration was right on target - believable, clear, overall an excellent voice to listen to. I highly recommend this book.
