Authority is a tremendous thing in the universe, nothing overshadows it. God's throne is established on His authority. God's authority represents God Himself. God alone is authority in all things; all the authorities of the earth are instituted by God. It is therefore important for us who desire to serve God to know the authority of God.

Franklin is a construction worker who says he's tired of women and their demands. Zora is a struggling singer who also claims to have lost interest in romance. But when these hard-shelled survivors cross paths, the outcome is electric and perplexing. Beyond the joy of sex, Franklin and Zora see the possibility of a solid, lasting relationship; the trouble is, they're far from sure of how to get there.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Disappearing Acts?

I love when they first met.

Which scene was your favorite?

The scene when they first professed their love for one another.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes I laughed and cried during this book.

Any additional comments?

Great narration.

Essence best-selling author Victoria Christopher Murray thrills audiences with her trademark twists and unforgettable voice. Scandalous gives listeners an early look at one of Murray’s most notorious characters. Exotic dancer Jasmine Cox is engaged and ready to settle down. But then a bachelorette-party roll in the hay ignites a torrid affair that threatens to drown out the sound of wedding bells.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

It is a very slow story.
This a crazy complicated story but I don't know if it should have taken this long to tell this story.

Did Scandalous inspire you to do anything?

To thine own self be true!

What a crazy story. The main character frustrated me to no end.

What made the experience of listening to Sleeping with Strangers the most enjoyable?

This book is great! The character development was superb. The descriptive writing style was awesome. I was able to see, taste, and smell the scenes. He is an awesome writer. It was very erotic which I do not really like a lot of erotic type scenes in my reading but the story was so captivating that I continued.

What did you like best about this story?

I love the character Gideon. I love how he showed Gideon's humanity.

Which character – as performed by Dion Graham – was your favorite?

LOLA!!!! Dion Graham was great. The way he mastered every character was so genius.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book had me laughing often but I also shuttered at the relationship between Gideon and Thelma. I really felt his pain while he described that relationship.

Carl Weber is a New York Times best-selling author who’s made a name for himself with wildly entertaining works marked by his trademark wit and storytelling panache. In The Choir Director, Bishop T.K. Wilson is banking on dynamic new choir director Anthony Mackie to reverse the failing congregation’s fortunes. But while Anthony’s got more than enough chops to raise a heavenly chorus, he’s also got a weakness for the ladies that could make the Devil himself stand up and take notice.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I found this author's writing style to be kind of boring. I wish it was more robust and descriptive. Maybe that is just my preference.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Choir Director?

The end was an excellent ending. I don't want to give it away.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No.

Was The Choir Director worth the listening time?

Yes

Any additional comments?

This was the craziest book. At first I thought I was going to hate this book but it really drew me in. The author's writing style is so laid back that at first I was done with the book but his development of the story was great. I feel so many different ways about this book. I know this review is nuts but if you have patience it is a good read.

This recently rediscovered and critically acclaimed 1937 novel tells the story of Janie Crawford, a long-legged, articulate, and fiercely independent African-American woman of the 1930s. Janie's quest for identity includes three marriages and a return to her roots. Despite her struggles, Janie never defines herself by regret, fear, or unrealistic dreams, and refuses to be anything but her own person.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would recommend this book to a friend because it is so well written. It is an excellent read. The way the author captures the dialect of the characters is captivating.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the realness of the love story.

Have you listened to any of Ruby Dee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Ruby Dee was an excellent narrator. I have never listened to her other performances. I quickly looked up her bio to see if she had narrated any other books. I loved her style.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The part that moved me the most was when the main character (I don't want to give it all away) sat with her friend and ended her story but comforted herself by the fact that she had found what she needed even though she lost it. A true story of better to have loved and lost than never have loved at all. Excellent read!
