When "White Fang" was first published in 1906, Jack London was well on his way to becoming one of the most famous, popular, and highly paid writers in the world. White Fang stands out as one of his finest achievements, a spellbinding novel of life in the northern wilds. In gripping detail, London bares the savage realities of the battle for survival among all species in a harsh, unyielding environment. White Fang is part wolf, part dog, a ferocious and magnificent creature through whose experiences we see and feel essential rhythms and patterns of life in the animal kingdom and among mankind as well.

Great story. Well written. Narrator good but not great. The story suitable for all except maybe the very young.

Millions are satisfied to sit through hour-long, weekly religious services. Millions more have left the church, brokenhearted and cynical. But God is waking up his people - people who will risk everything and sacrifice anything to become the dynamic, powerful church seen in Scripture. We Are Church calls Christ-followers, young and old, to hold fast to their biblical roots while seeking radical change. Scripture promises an exuberant and unstoppable church. That wondrous early church of acts can be our reality today.

Great insight. I too believe this is some of what the church is missing but this too will become another “method” if Gods people let the church and/or church leaders play the part of the Holy Spirit in their lives. Leading God’s people into a close and growing relationship with Holy Spirit is first priority.

  • Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes

  • Removing Cultural Blinders to Better Understand the Bible

Drawing on their own cross cultural experience in global mission, O'Brien and Richards show how better self-awareness and understanding of cultural differences in language, time, and social mores allow us to see the Bible in fresh and unexpected ways. Getting beyond our own cultural assumptions is increasingly important for being Christians in our interconnected and globalized world. Learn to read Scripture as a member of the global body of Christ.

The reasoning presented in this book is great and insightful. I feel the greater danger is reading without a relationship with Holy Spirit.
If He is to lead us into all truth the cultural/historical guidelines, though important and helpful, become a distant second.

Two opposing groups seek a 50,000-year-old radioactive meteorite known as the Sacred Stone. Muslim extremists have stolen a nuclear device and need the stone to give them the power to vaporize any city in the west. A megalomaniacal industrialist leads a group seeking to carry out the utter annihilation of Islam itself. And caught between the two militant factions is Juan Cabrillo and his crew, who must do whatever they can to stop the impending doom....

I've listened to many of CC's books and read a few. This book was not by CC. It lacked the swagger and the personalities were different or came across so. Missed Scott Brick a lot. It felt like CC's name was sold to another author. Disappointed.

Andrew Roberts' Napoleon is the first one-volume biography to take advantage of the recent publication of Napoleon's thirty-three thousand letters, which radically transform our understanding of his character and motivation. At last we see him as he was: protean multitasker, decisive, surprisingly willing to forgive his enemies and his errant wife Josephine.

Found book very interesting but hard to follow geographically due to my lack of French geography. Needed a map of France. Some French words or phrases were used with no translation. On the whole, the book gave a great view and history of Napoleon's life.
