Are you tired of feeling f*cked up? If you are, Gary John Bishop has the answer. In this straightforward handbook, he gives you the tools and advice you need to demolish the slag weighing you down and become the truly unf*cked version of yourself. "Wake up to the miracle you are," he directs. "Here's what you've forgotten: You're a f*cking miracle of being." It isn't other people that are standing in your way; it isn't even your circumstances that are blocking your ability to thrive. It's yourself and the negative self-talk you keep telling yourself.

The information presented in this book is by no means new or revolutionary. However, it is compiled in an excellent way. You may not learn something new or may learn only a few things but since so much helpful information comes in consistent proximity it is an extremely helpful book. I will definitely re-listen. It is a very good pick me up and motivator. Your mind won’t stumble upon such encouragement by its own. This book is a good way to be fed those high level encouragements you have discovered, but this time it’s at will.

Does God belong in the public arena, or is religion solely a private matter? Nancy Pearcey makes a passionate case that Christianity is not just religious truth, but truth about all reality. It is total truth.

This book is full. It deals with Christian spirituality, epistemology, apologetic discourse, testimony, history. It really is full of great material. Nancy writes in the line of a Reformed apologetic perspective while discussing a range of different topics. She interacts with many different streams of thought. The reader also does a very good job, not boring or monotone. My one objection is the way the chapters are broken up. The audio was not compiled well, however you can find break periods every 15-20 minutes.

In this revised edition of a formerly four-volume work, James Boice provides an overview of all the major doctrines of Christian theology in one volume. Boice carefully opens the topics like the nature of God, the character of his natural and special revelation, the fall, and the person and work of Christ with scholarly rigor and a pastor's heart.

Each section is divided into its own chapter, which makes easy stop and go points. Unlike the audible version of calvin's institutes you can follow along easily and stop just about whenever you want. The theology is solid and practical. The reading is standard audible reading that can get boring but the material is excellent.
