A good story of three women and their loves, but for listening,the explicit and deviant sex acts were unnecessary and for me ruined the overall story.

As one of the foremost evangelical thinkers of the 20th century, Francis Schaeffer long pondered the fate of declining Western culture. In this brilliant book, he analyzed the reasons for modern society's state of affairs and presented the only viable alternative: living by the Christian ethic, acceptance of God's revelation, and total affirmation of the Bible's morals, values, and meaning.

Probably would be a good text to have as there is much historical info. Interesting and makes me want to read more of Francis Schaffer work.

YUCK!

I've listened to the previous Alex Cross books, but this is too gross to listen to. I want my money back and I'm not likely to purchase a James Patterson book again. They are always violent , but often a good story line, yet this is over the top and unnecessary. I can't imagine even reading those descriptions.
