It can no longer be assumed that most people - or even most Christians - have a basic understanding of the Bible. Many don’t know the difference between the Old and New Testament, and even the more well-known biblical figures are often misunderstood. It is getting harder to talk about Jesus accurately and compellingly because listeners have no proper context with which to understand God’s story of redemption. In this basic introduction to faith, D. A. Carson takes seekers, new Christians, and small groups through the big story of scripture. He helps listeners to know what they believe and why they believe it.

I loved this book! Narrator is great! It gives an understanding to the knowledge of scripture in a simple way for a believer or a sceptic to conceptualize the God who IS there, in sovergn reign.

The author of the highly acclaimed Overdiagnosed describes seven widespread assumptions that encourage excessive, often ineffective, and sometimes harmful medical care. You might think the biggest problem in medical care is that it costs too much. Or that health insurance is too expensive, too uneven, too complicated - and gives you too many forms to fill out. But the central problem is that too much medical care has too little value.

As a physician it is refreshing to hear someone explain the science simply to help remove the fear mongering that recent medicine/health culture has developed in an effort to make money off of the unfortunate and totally unprepared patient. The question will be can the patient who is used to letting others think for them learn well enough to save themselves from the current proverbial snowball?
