In this 36-lecture course, you'll find an engaging way to explore profound religious questions and the many responses believers, scholars, and theologians have developed over more than 2,000 years. Through this series, Professor Cary reveals the enduring power of the Christian tradition-as both an intellectual discipline and a spiritual path.These lectures begin at the very dawn of Christianity, as you examine some of the earliest examples of scripture recorded by the first communities of the faithful.

In search of adventure, 29-year-old Conor Grennan traded his day job for a year-long trip around the globe, a journey that began with a three-month stint volunteering at the Little Princes Children's Home, an orphanage in war-torn Nepal. Conor was initially reluctant to volunteer, unsure whether he had the proper skill, or enough passion, to get involved in a developing country in the middle of a civil war. But he was soon overcome by the herd of rambunctious, resilient children.

If you could sum up Little Princes in three words, what would they be?

Heart-wrenching, hilarious, inspiring

What other book might you compare Little Princes to and why?

No comparison in this genre

What about Conor Grennan’s performance did you like?

Conor has a wonderfully humorous and compelling voice. His character voices are delightful.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The title of this book is easy to overlook and sounds boring. It doesn't become important until you realize that it is the actual name of an orphanage. So maybe, 'Little Princes Orphanage' or 'Rescuing the Little Princes of Nepal'??

Any additional comments?

I have nearly 300 audio books, and this is the first time I've ever written a review.
