  • "Clear, useful and well read"

    Overall

    I have come across the author before during a course on stress management and decided to download this audio book. It is read by the author and he has a very pleasant easy-going voice and a great deal of experience in presenting this type of material. The result is that he gets the information across well.
    As the concepts require thinking about, it is worth putting aside a bit of time to actually listen to the content: I found myself listening more than once and still enjoying it. Putting the concepts into practice is very rewarding.
    All in all a very good listen / read

    It is everywhere around us. Even worse, it gets inside us - sapping our energy, undermining our health, and making us more vulnerable to anxiety, depression, and disease. Now, based on Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn's renowned mindfulness-based stress-reduction program, this groundbreaking audiobook shows you how to use natural, medically proven methods to soothe and heal your body, mind, and spirit.

  • "Crystal clear logic and great insight"

    Overall

    As an ex-atheist with a scientific mind and no time for sentimental and wishy washy drivel, that had driven me away from and kept me away from serious thought about God and existence, it is a huge relief to come across writings (or readings in this case) that actually address in a sensible and logical way the issues surrounding belief. I can say that almost certainly if I had not been recommended to read these works (I bought the Audible version instead so as to listen in the car) - I would almost certainly not now think of myself as (it still makes me cringe to say it) a convert. Yes it was written decades ago, but clear thinking that addresses real and timeless issues does not go out of date (although perhaps someone worthy and trustworthy of the task could rephrase some of the essays with permission of the estate?). The section on vivisection is, for example, one of the clearest pieces of reasoning I have come across, similarly that on the position of women in the church (particularly relevant at the time of my writing this review).

    I think that the modern Christian church(es) seriously need someone of this kind to bring balance to the arguments: who will take up the batten?

    C. S. Lewis was a profound thinker with the rare ability to communicate the philosophical and theological rationale of Christianity in simple yet amazingly effective ways. God in the Dock contains 48 essays and 12 letters written by Lewis between 1940 and 1963 for a wide variety of publications.

  • "Very clear and well presented"

    Overall

    Thoroughly enjoyed this audio book. Keith Ward approaches the subject with true intellectual rigour and presents his case well. I wish there were more speakers and authors who could present the intellectual side of the Christian argument as well.
    I also appreciate his critique of the very popular but intellectually poor (but rarely questioned) work of Dawking who does himself no favours with his obvious closed minded bias, but who doesn't need to in order to sell well as sadly it is never challenged in the public arena.

    Great stuff, thoroughly recommended

    As the author of many classic works on science and philosophy, Richard Dawkins has always asserted the irrationality of belief in God and the grievous harm it has inflicted on society. He now focuses his fierce intellect exclusively on this subject, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes.

    If you caught a glimpse of heaven, would you choose to comeback to life?

    Investigative journalist Judy Bachrach has collected accounts of those who died and then returned to life with lucid, vivid memories of what occurred while they were dead, and the conclusions are astonishing. Clinical death - the moment when the heart stops beating and brain stem activity ceases - is not necessarily the end of consciousness, as a number of doctors are now beginning to concede.

    Why do the righteous suffer? This is an age-long dilemma. The human soul agitates over it. Man's wisdom endeavors to solve it. But God alone has the right answer. In the book of Job, God reveals the hidden purpose behind the suffering of the righteous. For suffering is unto sonship. Through suffering we grow into such a living knowledge of God that delivers us from self and fills us with Christ. Let all who suffer find comfort and strength in listening to The Splendor of His Ways.

    Der sächsische Schriftsteller Karl May hat hierzulande durch seine Orientromane das Bild des Islams und seiner Anhänger stark geprägt. Der Muslim ist demnach Gott ergeben und fatalistisch, er schickt sich in sein vom Schöpfer bestimmtes Los und versucht dies auch nicht zu ändern. Karl May pflegte keinen Kontakt zu Muslimen, er verstand deren Schriften und Sprache nicht, er wusste nichts von der u. a. in Sure 18, Vers 29 angebotenen Wahlmöglichkeit zwischen Glauben und Unglauben.
