Why couldn't we all learn about the 5 love languages BEFORE we got married. After a lot of self-learning in 16 years of marriage, this could have saved a lot of difficulty over the years. Don't get me wrong, there's no such thing as a quick fix but the awareness and lessons you pick up by learning the 5 love languages is invaluable for a marriage in any state or stage. The actual reading isn't riviting but Gary does a very good job explaining and providing examples.

This was a decent listen but not great ... certainly not as good as the ratings indicate. Humorous walk thru of history and presidents.

Philip Yancey contends that grace is a concept at the heart of God's plan for salvation, and that it is the responsibility of every Christian to reveal the grace the world is searching for.

Very thoughtful insights as to grace and the wonderful aspects of how God and Jesus have given us a gift that is priceless. Provoked me to think of ways I could apply it to every day life and my relationships with my kids, my wife and my friends ... and especially people I don't like.

In 1970, one of Mississippi's more colorful weekly newspapers, The Ford County Times, went bankrupt. To the surprise and dismay of many, ownership was assumed by a 23 year-old college dropout, named Willie Traynor. The future of the paper looked grim until a young mother was brutally raped and murdered by a member of the notorious Padgitt family. Willie Traynor reported all the gruesome details, and his newspaper began to prosper.

Solid Grisham, a bit slow at times but still good

I enjoyed the way that John has weaved the history of the times and daily life in rural Mississippi with a courtroom and legal drama. It was a little slower than other novels written but I still thouroughly enjoyed it.
