Jazz Bashara is a criminal. Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you're not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent. Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down.

Fantastic story! Weak ending, in my opinion. If you liked the Martian, you will almost certainly enjoy this book.

Bob Johansson has just sold his software company and is looking forward to a life of leisure. There are places to go, books to read, and movies to watch. So it's a little unfair when he gets himself killed crossing the street. Bob wakes up a century later to find that corpsicles have been declared to be without rights, and he is now the property of the state. He has been uploaded into computer hardware and is slated to be the controlling AI in an interstellar probe looking for habitable planets.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Well written, highly engaging story line. If you enjoy sci-fi set in a realistic universe, don't even hesitate to add this to you collection.
This is the first book in a long time that I've listened to essentially start to finish. It's also the first story in a very, very long time that I plan on listening to again.

Join James Goll on an exciting and insightful journey into the visionary world of The Seer! The prophetic movements in church history and in contemporary life are fed by two mighty streams: the prophet, whose revelation is primarily verbal, and the seer, whose revelation is more visionary in nature. You will discover the prophetic power of dreams, visions, and life under the open heavens.

Great resource. The stories felt a little rushed at times, but this may be a result of the audio format. I recommend this book.

The spirit of Jezebel, a deceptive “chameleon spirit”, wreaks havoc in the earthly realm by sticking men and women both inside and outside of the body of Christ - but it can be dismantled. Breaking the spirit of Jezebel is a process that requires you to understand how to identify this spirit, and then to counteract it by obeying the Word of God.

Great material. Unfortunately delivered in a Sermon format. Enjoyed the message, would be even more beneficial in a more focused, thoughtful format.

A deceptive spirit that is still dangerously active in the earth today, especially in the church, controlled Jezebel the infamous wife of King Ahab, and Queen of Israel. As believers we must understand, that beneath the physical manifestation of Jezebel is a chameleon spirit that can influence both men and women equally. This message was preached live at Rod Parsley’s Dominion Camp Meeting 2004.

Great material, but buried within an "impromptu" message given in a Camp Meeting Revival type setting. Delivered in the African-American charismatic style of preaching. You've been warned.

David Murrow's groundbreaking new book reveals why men are the world's largest unreached people group. With eye-opening research and a persuasive grasp on the facts, Murrow explains the problem and offers hope and encouragement to women, pastors, and men. Why Men Hate Going to Church does not call men back to the church - it calls the church back to men.

If your already a Mark Divine fan, I recommend listening to hear him break down his concepts a little deeper.

If you're new to Mark, I recommend starting with The Way of the Seal for a more accessible entrance into his philosophy.
