    Story

    Forget Dawkins, Harris, Hitchins, McGrath or Swinburne. Most of the questions and answers to issues of religious faith are in here. Read this, City of God and Summa Theologicae (Aquinas) and you'll see how trivial most modern popular discussion is. There is nothing new under the Sun! Well read and a worthwhile listen.

    The Confessions of St. Augustine

    Saint Augustine's contributions to Christian theology are second to no other post-apostolic author in the whole sweep of church history. Yet along side his doctrinal treatises, Augustine tells a story of his life devoted to Christ as his only satisfaction. The Confessions is at once the autobiographical account of Augustine's life of Christian faith and at the same time a compelling theology of Christian spirituality for everyone.

  • "A great introduction to the major t..."

    Overall

    Once you get over the initially patronising tone of Walter Dixon's reading this is a genuinely interesting work. MacCullogh's agenda as a 'friend of Christianity' is apparent throughout and this is very much a study of Christianity from the outside with no proselytising mission. The audiobook can be confusing as several of the themes overlap, for obvious reasons, and it's more difficult to 'flick back a couple of pages' in an audiobook, so it can be easy to lose the thread from time to time. However, despite this the level of detail given to major thinkers and themes within the development of Christianity is useful and informative for everyone but the expert in this area. It is enjoyable to read / listen to a work from an author as comfortable citing Father Ted as St. Augustine. This is neither inaccessible to the beginner nor dumbed down to the point of meaninglessness. Well worth the 40 odd hours listening!

    Once in a generation, a historian will redefine his field, producing a book that demands to be read or heard - a product of electrifying scholarship conveyed with commanding skill. Diarmaid MacCulloch's Christianity is such a book. Breathtaking in ambition, it ranges back to the origins of the Hebrew Bible and covers the world, following the three main strands of the Christian faith.

    I really enjoyed this work, though I found getting your head around and remembering all the names difficult in an audio book! I had to Google a lot of them when I got to work just to help the names stick in my head! As an introduction I really enjoyed this and it was helpful in contextualising the interplay between Western and Islamic philosophy too. I'd recommend.

    Ever since he became a Christian at the age of forty, it has been Poirot actor David Suchet's dream to make an audio recording of the whole Bible. In between filming the final episodes of Poirot, David Suchet spent over 200 hours in the recording studio to create the very first full-length audio version of the NIV Bible spoken by a single British actor. Volume 2 of the NIV Audio Bible includes the Prophets, Gospels, Acts and Letters, covering the books of Isaiah to Revelation.

    It is a story like no other: an epic of endurance against destruction, of creativity in oppression, joy amidst grief, the affirmation of life against the steepest of odds. It spans the millennia and the continents - from India to Andalusia and from the bazaars of Cairo to the streets of Oxford. It takes you to unimagined places: to a Jewish kingdom in the mountains of southern Arabia; a Syrian synagogue glowing with radiant wall paintings; the palm groves of the Jewish dead in the Roman catacombs.

    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.

    A belief in free will touches nearly everything that human beings value. It is difficult to think about law, politics, religion, public policy, intimate relationships, morality-as well as feelings of remorse or personal achievement-without first imagining that every person is the true source of his or her thoughts and actions. And yet the facts tell us that free will is an illusion.

    True Christians have been persecuted throughout the Church Age, and in some parts of the world continue in great trials. But the Savior is always there providing comfort and strength. No marvel, for Christ warned his followers that this would happen. Here, in Martyr of the Catacombs, we get a glimpse of the heinous persecutions in Ancient Rome and look inside the lives of those Christians whose very lives depended upon the place of refuge beneath the city of Rome.

    The Gospel of Thomas remains one of the most exciting archeological finds of recent centuries. How accurately are we able to discover what it is saying, immersed as we are in 2000 years of Platonic and dualistic Christian orthodoxy? Thanks to the influx of Eastern knowledge and the new crop of Western teachers willing to reapproach their Christian tradition as the Eastern event that Jesus was, we may finally be able to see the meaning and philosophical structure of this ancient and truly remarkable text.

    Christianity takes an astonishing variety of forms in America, from churches that cherish traditional modes of worship to evangelical churches and fellowships, Pentecostal churches, social-action churches, megachurches, and apocalyptic churches - congregations ministering to believers of diverse ethnicities, social classes, and sexual orientations. Nor is this diversity a recent phenomenon, despite many Americans' nostalgia for an undeviating "faith of our fathers" in the days of yore.

    In Eavesdropping on God, the listener has the privilege of "listening" in on the conversations, questions, and struggles that one man faces, which are not unfamiliar to many Christians. Book Four, Glimpses of Hope, covers how hope in God not only sustains my life, but also blesses me beyond measure. We sometimes face trials and tribulations that seem hopeless, but as you journey through this devotional, you'll come to see that our hope in God is never baseless or begrudging.

I began my writings more than 30 years ago during a time in my life when I was unable to sleep well at night because of a painful back. As a consequence, throughout the night, I would have to get up to apply a heating pad to get relief.
