Clear, concise, and penetrating, Practical Religion contains a series of writings about the daily duties, dangers, experiences, and privileges of all who profess and call themselves true Christians. Ryle explains that a "practical religion" is not a religion of works, but rather one in which those who are saved can put their faith into practice.

After listening to this book I have but one question. With the Bible in one hand and this text in the other, what Christian could ever say that they knew not how to live the Christian life? I could only handle reading one chapter a day for I would spend the rest of the day weeping, wailing, repenting, and praying the God through Jesus would renew my mind, my walk, and my actions. I pray many would read this book and be saved from lukewarm Christianity.

In the countryside of Victorian England, Edward Atherton, rector of Thornham St. Stephen, has taken on the arduous task of restoring the ancient church. But he should never have meddled with the tomb that lay beneath the church's crumbling walls. The moment the workman raises the tomb lid, an unspeakable horror escapes.

This was an excellent read. the narration was great and I found myself shivering as the story progressed. I hope audible will obtain all of Aycliffe's books, especially The Talisman. I like Aycliffe's book by that title more than King's.

Early on in his life, Matt craved a return to nature. When he became an adult, he set aside his comfortable urban life and lived entirely off the land. In this riveting narrative that brings together epic adventure and spiritual quest, he shows us what extraordinary things the human body is capable of when pushed to its limits. He learns the secrets of the Tarahumara Indians, which help him run the 1,600-mile Pacific Crest Trail in just 58 days and endure temperature swings of 100 degrees.

Matt Graham is an amazing guy and his story is inspiring. I think he would appreciate that I listened to it on Audible like listening to a story told around the communal fire in primitive times. OK gotta go and listen to it again! Peace.
