  • "Does what it says on the tin!"

    Overall

    If anyone ever wants to know exactly what Catholics believe and why then the easiest thing to do is read this book. It is as simple as that. Fr Robert Barron is a Catholic phenomenon who has been recognised by his superiors in the Church as having a gift for communicating complex Catholic theology and factual history in an honest and accessible way. The driving force for that honesty and accessibility is his love for God and his enthusiasm in his faith. He literally sings his faith to the world through his writing and broadcasting. For Catholics this is a "must have" book. It has been adopted by RCIA groups in Catholic dioceses the world over. For those who are curious about Catholicism and want to know why Catholic believe what they do, then you can do no better than read this luminous work. The audible version is all the more awesome because Fr Robert narrates it himself and his love and enthusiam burst out of every chapter.

    Fr. Robert Barron's comprehensive work goes straight to the core of the Catholic faith. He first examines the foundations of Christ's incarnation, life and ministry, and then works through the essentials of the Catholic tradition: from sacraments, worship and prayer, to Mary and the saints, and on to salvation, heaven and hell. Throughout this epic journey, Fr. Barron uses art, literature, personal stories, Scripture, theology, philosophy and history to present a complete picture of the Church to the world.

  • "More than just a writer of children..."

    Overall

    Most of the secular world knows CS Lewis as the man who wrote the Narnia chronicles. Unfortunately many of them probably don't know that he was one of the most accomplished Christian apologists of the 20th century. His supreme talent lay in being able to tailor the complexity of his arguments to his audience and this is superbly illustrated in this collection of his lectures, letters and articles. There is something for everyone here and is fascinating reading/listening for both those who want to defend their faith to those who seek understand why Christians believe what they do. Don't let the title put you off! It is much more user-friendly that the words "theology and ethics" suggests. It is also a fascinating look into the mind of one of literature's towering intellects.

    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.

  • "Sound Christian Theology for the 21..."

    Overall

    Fr Robert Barron is a gift to the Christian world. His theology is sound and historically accurate, but he brings complex Christology right up to date for the modern age by using metaphor and language which readers/listeners can relate to. Of course, this is written from a Roman Catholic perspective because that is what Fr Robert is, a Catholic priest, but there is much in this little book which any Christian could find valuable and which enquiring non-believers might be interested in. It's not a long book and that is to it's advantage because in increases it's already impressive accessibility.

    A master theologian offers inspiring insights into the mystery of Christ's presence in our lives. As festive as the film Babette's Feast and as profound as the work of Ronald Knox, this fresh look at the Eucharist brings to light the spiritual meaning of meal, sacrifice, and real presence in our lives.

    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.

    On Getting Unstuck, Pema Chodron introduces a rare Tibetan teaching she received from her teacher, Dzigar Kontrul Rinpoche, and one that has become critical to her practice. Here, she unveils the mystery of an ineffable quality; a "pre-emotional" feeling that arises in us, brings us discomfort, and causes us to react by escaping the discomfort, often with harmful habits. With Getting Unstuck, she offers us a first look at "both the itch and the scratch": what Tibetan Buddhists call shenpa.

    Five hundred years before the birth of Jesus, a God-realized being named Lao-tzu in ancient China dictated 81 verses, which are regarded by many as the ultimate commentary on the nature of our existence. The classic text of these 81 verses, called the Tao Te Ching or the Great Way, offers advice and guidance that is balanced, moral, spiritual, and always concerned with working for the good.

    There was need for an audiobook with short, practical chapters with assignments and suggested prayers so that people could listen for a little while and grab hold of something that they could apply to their marriage right away. The chapters needed to be short enough that husband and wife could listen together without too much inconvenience, enjoy the time together, and even discuss the content. The fact that the lessons are so practical, and, therefore, immediately applicable, is huge.

    Jesus was a Messiah behind enemy lines - God come into a sinful world ruled by evil. He was on a secret mission to save humanity. To Jesus' first-century Jewish contemporaries, whatever the Nazarene might be, he was not simply "another good rabbi". Jesus was a polarizing figure. One believed either that this powerful preacher and wonderworker was uniquely of God, or that he was an agent of the Evil One.
