If you enjoyed the movies the 16th floor, Total Recall or The Game (Mike Douglas) then you will definitely enjoy this book. Reality itself is the subject. Sanderson puts in a great variation on this theme. Highly recommend. Great Narrator.

National best-selling author Frank Peretti is an undisputed master of supernatural thrillers. The Oath has sold nearly a million copies and won the ECPA Gold Medallion Award for best fiction. When a nature photographer is killed and mutilated while camping, common sense points to a rogue bear on the prowl. But the search for answers uncovers a century of sin-and a beast of ghastly power. Filled with chilling suspense and unforgettable imagery, The Oath is an epic tale of good versus evil.

No one knows where his mother went or whether she's coming back. Desperate to see her again, he must take matters into his own hands. From the farm, he embarks on a treacherous search that will take him to the squalid hideaways of Detroit and back again, through tawdry taverns, peep shows, and gambling houses.

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

Good survivalist book. The author puts you in the backseat on a survivalist fantasy. Very well played out. Didn't care for his use of the name of our Lord as an explicative. That being said the story is very good.

In the aftermath of the First World War, Einstein writes about his hopes for the League of Nations, his feelings as a German citizen about the growing anti-Semitism and nationalism of his country, and his myriad opinions about the current affairs of his day. In addition to these political perspectives, The World as I See It reveals the idealistic, spiritual, and witty side of this great intellectual as he approaches topics including "Good and Evil", "Religion and Science", "Active Pacifism", "Christianity and Judaism", and "Minorities".

Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared....

A wonderful true story of a man who took life at its worst and always wound up on top of things. Well voiced by Mr. Herrmann. I looked on the internet and found out he just died in July 2014, They made a movie out of this book but I'm told they left the redemption part out of things so i'll wait to watch it on netflix. Highly recommended. Right now they are selling this book for under 4 dollars... unbelievable.

Soldier Girls follows the lives of three women on their paths to the military. These women, who are quite different in every way, become friends, and we watch their interaction and also what happens when they are separated. We see their families, their lovers, their spouses, their children. We see them work extremely hard, deal with the attentions of men on base and in war zones, and struggle to stay connected to their families back home.

It took me awhile to get into the book but it was worth the journey. I didn't care for some of the language. Donna Postel was a great reader and the book is good. The insight into the war in Afganistan was very interesting. And it sounded crazy that they are sending 50 year olds to war. When I was in the marines 30 years ago, The top age was 28.

In Foundations: An Overview of Systematic Theology, R.C. Sproul shows that the truths of Scripture relate to each other in perfect harmony. This eye-opening series addresses a myriad of questions about the origin and authority of the Bible, God, the Trinity, man, sin, salvation, revelation, miracles, the church, the end times, and more.

Love the book. RC Sproul is a very clear thinker, you couldn't ask for a better reader or in this case speaker. The only disagreement I have with him is his view on the rapture. He doesn't believe in it. Highly recommended.
