One of the comedy world's fastest-rising stars tells his wild coming of age story during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. Noah provides something deeper than traditional memoirists: powerfully funny observations about how farcical political and social systems play out in our lives.

I was expecting this book to be directly about race relations in the world. What it turned out to be was a look into race in South Africa from the eyes of someone that lived it. It was a glimpse into his life. I was grateful for that look. I liked how he changed his voice for the different people. I was amazed, and not amazed, at how Blacks and Christianity have parallels all over the world. This was a good listen.

I like the way the Proverbs are presented in this format. I can listen while traveling to work on the public transit system or while in the house working on my laptop. I can also let it be heard by my children, who are often around while I am working on my laptop.

I like this interpretation of the Psalms. It helps make a little more real and easier to apply to my everyday life, which I need more of.

Giants. We must face them. Yet, we need not face them alone. This profound look at the life of the biblical figure David digs deeply into the defeats he suffered, and the victories he won, as he faced the giants in his life. When David focused on God, giants tumbled. But when David focused on giants, he stumbled.

I liked Max's honesty concerning life's struggles. The book helped me put some things in perspective. It also caused me to want to read the scriptures again concerning David and his life. The book reminded just how much we, in today's world, can relate to the people of the Bible. It helps me know that I am not crazy and that I CAN make it with God's help.
