The History of Christianity II: From the Reformation to the Modern Megachurch
- By: Molly Worthen, The Great Courses
- Narrated by: Molly Worthen
- Length: 17 hrs and 49 mins
- Original Recording
When you think about Christian history, you might think of the first thousand years - the events of Jesus' life, the acts of the apostles, the establishment of the church, and the various councils that established theological doctrine. But the history of Christianity from the Reformation to the present is equally dramatic and profoundly relevant. It's a story about people as much as theology - our cultures, our politics, our relationship to the world.
A history from someone who takes Christianity seriously

History of Christianity
An amazing overview of ~500 years of Christianity from a most articulate and concise professor. Never once was the awful "But we don't have time for...." uttered! This story is a global tale, woven together with insight, connecting very many strands of Christianity over time. I have learned very much but also that no church denomination, break-away group or national church is known mainly through the centuries for its unrelenting demonstration of love. There is more to do!

Born a Crime
- Stories from a South African Childhood
- By: Trevor Noah
- Narrated by: Trevor Noah
- Length: 8 hrs and 44 mins
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.

An amazing story
Trevor Noah brought to life his childhood experiences in a brilliant manner. As a white girl brought up in Nigeria I had only glimpses of what the lives of those around me might be. I bet many of them were variations of this story, likely without a successful ending. Sharp insights and engaging narrative, couldn't stop listening!
