The quintessential hellfire and damnation sermon that reportedly caused mass conversions and repentances. This used to be (and in some places still is) taught as part of the US high school American literature curriculum. Perhaps more controversial today than in 1741!

The gist of it that God doesn't owe us one second of life. It is up to us to repent and believe the gospel now and not wait or reject it. As careful as we might be doesn't mean a thing when it's time to die. Receive Jesus Christ now while you have time.

Chuck explores the contradictory behavior of UFOs, and other demonic deceptions, characteristic of the end times. Are they real? Why do UFOs enjoy a military classification higher than our most sensitive weapons systems? Why are the events which occurred in Roswell, New Mexico, still classified since 1947? Why is the Vatican openly preparing to receive an alien visitor?

He rambles, chases rabbits, goes off in several direction, hard to follow. Just like his lectures. At least he quotes KJV most of the time.

This is the story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world - and did. Is he a destroyer or a liberator? Why does he fight his hardest battle not against his enemies, but against the woman he loves? Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand's magnum opus and launched an ideology and a movement. With the publication of this work in 1957, Rand gained an instant following and became a phenomenon. Atlas Shrugged emerged as a premier moral apologia for capitalism, a defense that had an electrifying effect on millions of readers (and now listeners) who had never heard capitalism defended in other than technical terms.

How can someone reject communism and God too? I didn't realize she was an atheist. What a waste. I rather trust in Jesus Christ than any idea about government. Jesus is the Might counselor and the government will be on His shoulders. He died for my sins so coming to him in faith in his finished we work I could be saved. Don't be a fool. Come to Jesus for forgiveness of sins and he will lead you the right way

Narrator was near perfect. This is the first time I finished the book, or rather he did. I never knew how much different this book was from the movies. I can see why the movies had to improvise the story as it was told from the points of view of those around the antagonist. Of course the story goes almost entirely in reverse order. Well done.

One of the most fascinating and strategic topics in ancient texts is the record of fallen angels, giants, and UFO s. Fallen angels and giants are shrouded in mystery and belong to the age of pyramids and other great wonders of the world. It is an epoch that was destroyed by God s judgment, a flood, which left the world everlastingly changed, the evidence of which is found in the tales, folklore, and traditions of many cultures around the world. There were giants in the earth in those days....

The narrator read it like it was his story. This book ties a lot of facts I've heard but was never able to put together. I highly recommend this book.

Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever. Joyland is a brand-new novel and has never previously been published.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Not now. It is a great story til the last chapter where Mr King decides to throw liberal politics into the mix. Really? I can read the Internet if I want politics. I want a good story from Mr. King. The reading was great.

What was most disappointing about Stephen King’s story?

The left wing politics in the last chapter.

Which scene was your favorite?

At the apartment.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really.

Any additional comments?

Leave the politics out.
