In Lessons in Hope, George Weigel tells the story of his unique friendship with St. John Paul II. As Weigel learns the pope "from inside", he also offers a firsthand account of the tumult of post-Vatican II Catholicism and the Cold War's endgame, introducing listeners to the heroes who brought down European communism. Later, he shows us the aging pope grappling with the post-9/11 world order and teaching new lessons in dignity through his own suffering.

This is a great testimony of St. John Paul. I loved Witness to Hope but I never finished it. This gives a great review and brings us up to date. It’s like his previous two biographies in one. I appreciated hearing a lot about Weigel himself and how he was selected to author the Pope’s biography in the first place. I’ve always liked Weigel but my respect for him has greatly increased after this book.

Nabeel Qureshi describes his dramatic journey from Islam to Christianity, complete with friendships, investigations, and supernatural dreams along the way. Providing an intimate window into a loving Muslim home, Qureshi shares how he developed a passion for Islam before discovering, almost against his will, evidence that Jesus rose from the dead and claimed to be God. Unable to deny the arguments but not wanting to deny his family, Qureshi's inner turmoil will challenge Christians and Muslims alike.

I really appreciated your kind presentation of Islam. I also enjoyed hearing how you compared the strong evidence for Christianity. I think everyone will benefit from the book. For more on the reliability of the New Testament see “The Case for Jesus” by Dr Brant Pitre (on Audible).

Booker T. Washington fought his way out of slavery to become an educator, statesman, political shaper, and proponent of the "do-it-yourself" idea. In his autobiography, he describes his early life as a slave on a Virginia plantation, his steady rise during the Civil War, his struggle for education, his schooling at the Hampton Institute, and his years as founder and president of the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, which was devoted to helping minorities learn useful, marketable skills.

I’m so impressed with this man. He proposes that strong moral virtue as well as education and hard work are the key to race relations and to helping anyone who started with little material wealth. He then proved it by his life and his school. These are still the right answers to today’s difficulties. Professor Washington is a timeless voice of eloquence and reason.

So helpful!! The last two chapters really tell you how to heal. But hearing Randy and Bill's testimonies at the beginning show how anyone can begin healing. Randy's critique of why most christians don't expect healing was very helpful. The small section critiquing Catholic culture was the most respectful, helpful and kind I have ever heard. These men are real gentlemen and are moving in power in incredible ways. I was very impressed.

Over the past hundred years, scholars have attacked the historical truth of the Gospels and argued that they were originally anonymous and filled with contradictions. In The Case for Jesus, Brant Pitre taps in to the wells of Christian scripture, history, and tradition to ask and answer a number of different questions, including: If we don't know who wrote the Gospels, how can we trust them? How are the four Gospels different from other Gospels, such as the lost Gospel of "Q" and the Gospel of Thomas?

I am a Catholic Priest and I highly recommend this book! This takes the principles of "More than a Carpenter" but brings it very much up to date to correct so much of biblical scholarship and secular rewriting of the reliability of the Gospels and the Gospel Message. Very academic but also very readable. I will be using this book for years, especially in small groups and helping those who doubt their faith.
