Picking up where Bible expert Bart Ehrman's New York Times best seller, Misquoting Jesus, left off, Jesus, Interrupted addresses the larger issue of what the New Testament actually teaches...and it's not what most people think. This is the book that pastors, educators, and anyone interested in the Bible have been waiting for, a clear and compelling account of the central challenges we face when attempting to reconstruct the life and message of Jesus.

What did you love best about Jesus, Interrupted?

Heard arguments regarding cannon that I was seeking. Identified reasoning components which I appreciated. Shared listening with son and we discussed so that was a plus.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Content most interesting, a bit wordy least interesting.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Jason Culp?

Yes, narration was good.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No

Any additional comments?

Author doesn't equally apply his arguments to his own side. A little to jaded to come across neutral for the research. Other than that good content.

  • Wholeheartedness

  • Busyness, Exhaustion, and Healing the Divided Self
  • By: Chuck DeGroat

We all feel that nasty pull to and fro, the frantic busyness that exhausts us and threatens to undo us. And we all think we know the solution - more downtime, more relaxation, more rest. And we're all wrong. As DeGroat himself has discovered, the real solution to what pulls us apart is wholeheartedness, a way of living and being that can transform us from the inside out. And that's what listeners of this book will discover too.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

More succinct content. Never did clearly understand the formula being proposed, but then again I was bored and skipping at times.But I didn't hear it clearly in the conclusion either.

Has Wholeheartedness turned you off from other books in this genre?

Only slightly, because this genre tends to be too wordy.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Good

What character would you cut from Wholeheartedness?

NA
