The Bible offers some clues to God's personality - he's alternately been called vindictive and just, bloodthirsty and caring, all-powerful and impotent, capricious and foresighted, and loving and hateful. But no one has ever fully explored why God might be such a figure of contrasts. Nor has anyone ever satisfactorily explained what guides his relationship not just with angels, the devil, and his son, but also with all of creation.

This audio book can be summed up in 14 simple words and 2 commas: oh my, what an enjoyable romp thru the dry bones of scripture, sort of.

No, seriously though, I enjoyed listening to this audio book while I go about the soul deadening duties of my post office job. Now, for you bible thumpers out there, be warned that this book is very irreverent. It is also very funny, and at times quite thought provoking. I didn't sense any contempt or hate toward believers, which is good. I've seen it many times where making light of a faith devolves into being mean spirited mockery, and while this is again very irreverent, I don't think it devolved into that. I enjoyed this and got some laughs out of it.
The narration is good. I always prefer to have the author narrate if possible. Who better to give voice to the tale? Also, I'm now going to found a splitter sect based on worshipping Sword Mouth Jesus!

A master storyteller at his best - the O. Henry Prize winner Stephen King delivers a generous collection of stories, several of them brand-new, featuring revelatory autobiographical comments on when, why, and how he came to write (or rewrite) each story. Magnificent, eerie, utterly compelling, these stories comprise one of King's finest gifts to his constant fan. "I made them especially for you," says King. "Feel free to examine them, but please be careful. The best of them have teeth."

Pretty good yarn from Mr McBride (let reedom riiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnggg!). LOL... Sorry 'Bout that Mr.McBride, lol... Anyways, back to the yarn. It's a cold weather blizzard type of thriller situation that a group of guys find themselves in. Seriously. not one chick. I mean it's a sausage factory in this shed they find. And there's dead and shredded dudes all over this mountain. And then things really get crazy. Good narration. Good run time. Good plot. Little bit of a weak sauce ending. I give it a solid b-

On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles?Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you'll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever.

Much of Richard Matheson's work has found its way into pop culture: the title story became a memorable episode of television's The Twilight Zone, and more recently, Will Smith starred in the blockbuster movie I Am Legend. Stephen King has declared Matheson to be one of his favorite writers. Find out why as you listen to the classic horror story of a man who peers out of his airplane window to see a gremlin destroying the wing.
