As you read this book, you are going to have a lot of things and ideas that may challenge your belief system. Don’t worry about it! Read the book as a whole and then use it as reference guide to the parts addressed.

It is a recipe to avoid misinterpretation of the Holy Bible. As often, you will hear things in church that doesn’t sound right. Now in a group, I cringe inside when it is used absolutely wrong! It will open your eyes!!! Keep your eyes on Jesus and let everything else go!

The Ruhar hit us on Columbus Day. There we were, innocently drifting along the cosmos on our little blue marble, like the Native Americans in 1492. Over the horizon came ships of a technologically advanced, aggressive culture, and BAM! There went the good old days, when humans got killed only by each other. So, Columbus Day. It fits. When the morning sky twinkled again, this time with Kristang starships jumping in to hammer the Ruhar, we thought we were saved.

Pulitzer Prize, Biography, 2016. Barbarian Days is William Finnegan's memoir of an obsession, a complex enchantment. Surfing only looks like a sport. To initiates it is something else entirely: a beautiful addiction, a demanding course of study, a morally dangerous pastime, a way of life.

I don't normally share books that I have listened to or read. This is different. Like William Finnegan, I experienced Hawaii as a kid growing up. I can identify with the difficulty of the problem. Also, the way he talks about surfing makes me wish a little bit that I new how to surf! Very entertaining book and informative to a surfer's life. Thank you! If you are ever in Atlanta, Ga, look me up! Can't give you waves but a good meal and drink is what I can offer!

Mackenzie Allen Phillips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation, and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later, in this midst of his great sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack one wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change his life forever.

I didn't know what to expect because I didn't even know the story line. I was looking for a book to listen to for a long drive. This one jumped out at me and yelled 'Read Me'! So, I did. What a wonderful book! You won't be disappointed. This is the first review I have written. Don't normally do. Been a listener for 2 yrs and never written one until now!
