Richard Mayhew is a young man with a good heart and an ordinary life, which is changed forever when he stops to help a girl he finds bleeding on a London sidewalk. His small act of kindness propels him into a world he never dreamed existed. There are people who fall through the cracks, and Richard has become one of them. And he must learn to survive in this city of shadows and darkness, monsters and saints, murderers and angels, if he is ever to return to the London that he knew.

Best narrator ever! Brilliant performance. Story is well written and compelling, often humerus ;-) Worth the purchase and time.

This is one of the best messages I've ever heard. However, I think it would be better to read this than listen to it ... because there are so many insights worth quoting and memorizing. I did feel, that John was racing at times - maybe to meet the schedule dictated by the publisher, or to "jist get er done." I will listen to it again soon ... or buy the book. Listening to Tim Keller's book titled "Preaching" in combination with this, while on walks, is a terrific thing to do.

Often incorrectly referred to as one of Paul’s “prison epistles” (he was not in prison in Rome in A.D. 60-62; he was living in his own rented house, free to come and go as he pleased), Ephesians is a brilliant exposition of Paul’s thesis that we are “saved by grace through faith”. It is also a glittering display of Paul’s rhetorical fireworks. Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy examines this extraordinary epistle in detail.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Kind of shallow and repetitive. Unlike a book (this is a lecture) this does not seem to be well prepared and scripted. Sorry. Just not enough meat.

In a work world that is increasingly competitive and insecure, people often have nagging questions: Why am I doing this work? Why is it so hard? And is there anything I can do about it? Tim Keller, pastor of New York's Redeemer Presbyterian Church and New York Times best-selling author of The Reason for God, has taught and counseled students, young professionals, and senior leaders on the subject of work and calling for more than 20 years.

The End of Faith. The God Delusion. God Is Not Great. Letter to a Christian Nation. Best seller lists are filled with doubters. But what happens when you actually doubt your doubts?
