A loving exhortation to love through the disciplines. And practical steps to turn our minds back to the foundational work. Robertson Dean has a lovely deep voice and interprets Nouwen's work as calm and reassuring. This book is not yet in ebook form so if you want it handy and for easy frequent instruction this audio book is the simplest way to keep it readily accessible.

Something strange is happening at Bloor's Academy.

When Dagbert is seen hanging around with Manfred Bloor, Charlie is sure the pair is up to something wicked. With the help of the Flames, can Charlie and his friends rescue Asa before it's too late?

Be careful with this one. Audible has pulled a fast one with this book. The usual reader is Simon Russell Beale. His character interpretations I think are a better match for the book. Simon Jones is a fine actor, but I don't think that Charlie's uncle is that agitated and harassed sounding nor should Charlie sound so whiny.
Note to users: if you are used to a certain reader be sure that Audible books are using the same reader to which you are accustomed.
