The Trinity is supposed to be the central doctrine grounding Christianity, yet we're often told that we shouldn't attempt to understand it because it's a mystery. But what if we breached that mystery? How might it transform our relationship with God?

I found this a very worthwhile listen. The narrator's voice complimented the topic. I would like to explore the Franciscan way more as a way to deepen my faith because of this book. I like the blend of the mystical exploration and the scientific inclusion.

What if we can make ourselves, our communities, and our planet healthier all at the same time by moving our bodies more? Movement Matters is a collection of essays in which biomechanist Katy Bowman continues her groundbreaking investigation of the mechanics of our sedentary culture and the profound potential of human movement. Here she widens her message and invites us to consider our personal relationship with sedentarism, privilege, and nature.

A robust challenge to all that we take for granted, all that we mindlessly do and are conditioned to in westernised culture in terms of the way we use, and the many ways we don't use our bodies and the wider impact of our choices either way. Great critical thinking out loud. Katy is a voice in the desert of sedentary existence crying out for us to pay attention to to the course we are headed on and inspiring any who have ears to hear to change tack.
I am enjoying my own journey in re-educating my movement with Katy and combined with my natural tendency to rebel against restrictive norms (I like change) she proves to be a thought provoking guide and my life is enriched. Thanks Katy.
Love the out-takes inclusion.

I really liked the pace of the book with the authors narration. I felt I learned a lot and will be listening over again to fully absorb the knowledge of gentle and natural in-built body wisdom that is God given. Levine leaves space for the spiritual dimension which I could adapt into prayer. I am not sure that I agree fully with his conclusions at the end but that didn't detract from the listen.

  • Mystery Babylon

Mystery Babylon is an in-depth look at the prophecy of Revelation 17 and 18. Richardson dissects the longest prophecy in the New Testament in order to make sense of these deeply elusive and profoundly controversial passages. At once a queen, a prostitute, and a cold-blooded killer, this great harlot waves a golden cup filled with blood. Adorned in purple and scarlet and gold and precious stones, she seduces the kings of the earth with luxury.

A most well argued & researched case of Last days biblical prophecy Islamic fulfilment - listen to the voice crying in the desert! Joel demonstrates​ impeccable Biblical exegesis. I am stunned by the information but grateful for it's publication & also driven to prayer for Muslims all the more. This work equips believers with knowledge to pray with greater understanding. He is a Berean of our day and has stuck his neck to bring us this work.No pun intended. I pray Joel &his family the blessing of the Lord Jesus Christ. Come Lord Jesus!

In his new book, When a Jew Rules the World, Richardson paints a picture of what that 1,000-year reign will be like, along the way blow-torching the notion that gentile Christians have "replaced" the Jews and Israel as the people of promise. Richardson lays out the tragic history of anti-Semitism within the church from the very beginning in what may be the most thorough repudiation of what has become known as "Replacement Theology", or, as Richardson calls it, "Supersessionism".

Well researched presentation, as is Joel's norm. Scripture rich. All who go by the name of Christ would do well to read and take note of the call and alarm he sounds.T his is easily accessible to the lay person. If you are not quite clear on or convinced of the calling and place of Israel and the Jews in the unfolding plan of God in the days that we live in I thoroughly recommend this book. Joel is a credit to the voice of calm resourced Christian teaching on this most importsnt subject.
It has made me read and study the Word with more attention to detail than before. I have always been aware of the place of Israel and the Jewish people in God's heart and still this book is a wake up call. Be prepared for a world view change.

In this groundbreaking book, Alanna Collen explores the extraordinary world of the powerful microbes that make up 90 percent of the human body. You are just 10 percent human. For every one of the cells that make your body, there are nine impostor cells. You are not just flesh and blood, muscle and bone, brain and skin, but bacteria and fungi. You are not an individual but a colony of microbes. Far from being passive, the trillions of microbes that live on and in you are intimately involved in running your body.

A fairly broad overview of the research. There is no sensationalism so easy to listen to with an English accent. There is only anecdotal suggestions of how to improve your gut biome. Great introduction to this fascinating subject.

Move Your DNA explains the science behind our need for natural movement - right down to the cellular level. It examines the differences between the movements in a typical hunter-gatherer's life and the movements in our own. It shows the many problems with using exercise like movement vitamins instead of addressing the deeper issue of a poor movement diet.
