In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

Although this review is supposed to be "optional" Audible will not permit me to submit my simple 4 word headline review and so, here I am writing "at least 15 words" so the system will accept my review. I hope you like them.

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.

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.

Timothy Keller, the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, addresses the frequent doubts that skeptics, and even ardent believers, have about religion.
