Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places reunites spirituality and theology in a cultural context where these two vital facets of Christian faith have been rent asunder. Lamenting the vacuous, often pagan nature of contemporary American spirituality, Eugene Peterson here firmly grounds spirituality once more in Trinitarian theology and offers a clear, practical statement of what it means to actually live out the Christian life.

Well written and deep. Enlightening. I had to keep going back to get the insight. They come fast and furious. Starts slow but ends with a bang.

This guy packed so much into the simplest of sentences. I really enjoyed listening to it, and, in the process I have learned so much. I'm sure you will too.

Why we think it’s a great listen: You thought he was a stodgy scientist with funny hair, but Isaacson and Hermann reveal an eloquent, intense, and selfless human being who not only shaped science with his theories, but politics and world events in the 20th century as well. Based on the newly released personal letters of Albert Einstein, Walter Isaacson explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos.

This is the third Isaacson bio I've listened to, and it is the best yet. Well constructed and delivered. he was able to take the complexity of physics and the breakthroughs of Einstein, and put them into layman's terms. If you want to capture the essence of Einstein. I highly recommend this book.
