This is 8 hours of non-stop action as far as fully engaging and productive learning is concerned. My favorite aspect of this program is focus on the high-frequency phrases that serve as the buiding block of conversational spanish. It is far more efficient to decode phrases than individual words. This book does a great job at highlighting those phrases that make up the conversations in the audio book. I'll highly recommend this book for Christians as well as non-Christians.

There was a time when Israel could do no wrong in America's eyes. That time is long past, and justly so - no nation is absolutely perfect, particularly not one that is engaged in a conflict as long as the Arab-Israeli conflict. But the myth of the perfect Israel has been supplanted by a far more deleterious myth: the myth of the evil Israel. This new myth has so pervaded contemporary culture that the history of Israel - as well documented as it is - has been recast and retold to fit a false narrative of Israel as violent occupier.

This is about as comprehensive and as balanced a coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as you can hope to find. Granted, it is a topic that is almost impossible to discuss without, at least, a tiny measures e of bias. This author however maintained a high level of professional objectivity and fairness in mentioning the wrongs of both sides. However, in the end, the facts in this book should leave the worst critic of Israel either converted in his or her position or speechless. I can't see how any rational person can do otherwise after seeing the facts plainly and objectivity laid out in this very well written and detailed history. I noticed that the author, knowing the polarity of this issue, took extra pains to leave his opinion out of the discussion and let the reader follow the very plain path of logic pointing out where the blame lies for this crisis.
The narrator did an excellent job also.

After trying so many Spanish lesson books on audible, I was very close to giving up, when I randomly purchased this one. It has restored my diminishing hope of learning this language. It doesn't contain as much content per buck compared to the others, every bit of content in it is very useful to your learning. By far the best way to teach conversational Spanish.

Author Constantly aims to dimiss the views of people of faith as superstitious or ignorant. Historians should relate facts objectively, not with a secret design to indoctrinate his audience into his own worldview. If you're a skeptic, atheist or agnostic, you may get this. If you're a person of faith, look elsewhere.

Focus your Spanish learning on the most frequently used verbs. Learn just the 100 verbs you need for everyday life to talk about the past, the present, and the future. One of the usual mistakes when learning a foreign language is that the student has no priorities. All the unknown verbs get the same attention. Actually, to communicate, you only need 100 verbs in any language. These verbs are the most frequently used and can be defined using an algorithm that provides the ranking. In this book, you'll find the list.

This is the first in a series of audible language learning books that I've purchased that I can say I'm pleased with. The book does exactly what it promises. It's straight to the point, going over a dozens of the most essential verbs, using the same sentence in I, YOU, HE/SHE, WE, THEY, YOU (plural), each in present, past and future. There are 36 phrases per verb. My only wish is that there was some sort of PDF document or something for reference; pretty much a transcript of the audio. I am mostly pleased however by the choice of verbs included.

This was a waste of money for me. I am not sure if the author knows the difference between words and phrases, but it's not 1001 phrases. More like100 to 200 phrases, and hundreds of words.
Moreover, most of the words are useless to a beginner in Spanish, as 75% of the words used here are not commonly used words.

For many believers, operating in the gifts of the Spirit has become a normal way of life. Yet there is one often-misunderstood gift crucial to the well-being of the church: the gift of discerning spirits. This gift is the powerful supernatural ability to hear and see into the spiritual realm, yet many people who have it may think they are crazy. Finding no help from the church, some have turned to medical doctors and actually been diagnosed with a mental disorder. Jennifer Eivaz, a trusted prophetic voice, has been there, and she offers hope, healing, and practical help.

There aren't many books that discuss the subject of discernment. That's something that has got to change however, as deception and spiritual warfare is at an alarming height in the church today. This book uses very practical description of the various expressions of discernment of spirits and numerous real life stories from several individuals (not just the author) to help the reader grasp the idea of how this often misunderstood, often underestimated, but very essential gift, works.
I have acquired a great hunger to develop this gift since reading this book, and cannot imagine anyone reading it without the same outcome. The many real life examples used to illustrate the points discussed serve very well to reinforce the idea of how indispensable this gift is.
Most of all, this book helps the person who already has the gift, but is unaware of it, to learn to harness and manage it's power for good. In a nutshell, this book is an eye-opener and a powerful mentor in the development of the gift of discernment.
BTW, I was very impressed with the quality of language and expressions used in the book. I don't usually expect that from charismaic books. Keep your editor!😊
