In this work, Pink sets out to reveal the true character of God. He believes that in order to truly know God, we must first submit to God and follow in his footsteps. "The people that do know their God shall be strong" (Dan. 11:32). It is the author's hope that those who listen to these words shall be blessed and see their lives transformed by the power of God.

i really liked this. the only problem i have with the book on audio is that there are so many references in it to get the most out of the book i would also recommend paper or even electronic copy as well as the audio. great listen though.

  • The Gospel Call and True Conversion

The Apostle Paul gave the Gospel the first place in his preaching, endeavored with all his might to proclaim it clearly, and even went so far as to pronounce a curse upon all those who would pervert its truth. Yet how sad it is that many, even among those considering themselves evangelicals, have reduced the Gospel message to a few trite statements to be repeated and view conversion as a mere human decision.

2012 marks the 60th anniversary of the publication of C. S. Lewis’s classic, Mere Christianity. Having sold over half a million copies in the UK alone, his overview of Christianity has been imitated many times, but never outdone. Mere Christianity brings together Lewis’s legendary broadcasts from the war years; talks in which he set out simply to ‘"explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times."

This book is really good. some of the concepts that Lewis brings out in the theology section are remarkable. it portrays some quite complex concepts in a very simple way. there are a couple of sections which diverge from my own understanding but this may be just a difference in our times and cultures but it is something u would recommend and I will be listening to it again.

Very good fast paced overview of the Bible from start to end. Skip shows himself as someone who is passionate and learned about the bible and he is a great orator. I am always skeptical of this sort of deal because there are so many money grabbing cranks peddling rubbish for money out there it is hard to trust anyone new to me without having to pay first. I am really glad I gave Skip a chance though and I would recommend him to anyone. always remember acts 17:11 but skip is a good starting point for sure :) Thanks Skip.

Despite believing he was bionic as a child, Ira Rainey was far from an elite athlete with superhuman running abilities like the ones he read about in books. He was in fact an overweight and unfit slacker who felt a bit sorry for himself because he had sore feet. Sure he ran a bit, but he also sat around a lot and ate and drank too much. Why? Because he could, and because he was a delusional optimist who thought everything would always be just fine.

What did you like most about Eat and Run?

In a way I found it difficult to change gear into the book. I was almost expecting a list of recipes and a trangz plan. What this book gave was so much more. There are many ways of assimilating but Scott gave us the best. He didn't tell people how to run, how to eat and how to think. He shows us by his own experiences. This was refreshing and totally wonderful. Not only was it an autobiography of a world champion but it was an instruction manual based on lived experience. We are not all the same, some of the things Scott does won't work for me but he explained how acquires information and why he does it, the moment when we hit the source. I haven't done ultra (yet) but I have done walkabouts with a backpack, some mountain, a tent and a water filter with myself for company and I get the purpose for which Scott runs, the reset button where upon hitting it we become ourselves. When we push past what we truly believe is impossible to the point where we are free to do anything we want. No other book I've read (so far) describes this existential come spiritual experience so well.

What did you like best about this story?

It is holistic so the book is all in one. Superficially though the photographer scene had me laughing

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

The deterioration and Death of Scotts Mother got me deeply.

Any additional comments?

The only part of this experience I found distracting was I wasn't sure where the second had view (i.e. the effect of Steve's writing) impinged on the experience. I would have much preferred a warts and all bad grammar and spelling mistakes that perhaps Scott would have made and less polish. No matter its still a cracking book

different to what I was expecting but we'll worth listening to. It is more of a life story which includes triathlon rather than a book about the life of a triathlete. that doesn't take anything away from the experience of listening to it though and I think I will again sometime.

In this prequel to Eon, Greg Bear continues to explore the possibilities presented by the asteroid Thistledown, a remnant of a lost human civilization. The Way is a tunnel through space and time that leads to other worlds, some more like planet Earth than Earth itself. It is perhaps the most formidable discovery in Thistledown and with it come disputes as to the nature of the Way and how it should be used. The Way can be reached only through Axis City, the only space station of Thistledown.

Would you listen to Legacy again? Why?

Yes, it is just plain weird. Bear has a fantastic imagiation

What did you like best about this story?

All of it. As a part of the way series it is completely different, even the writing style is different..

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I didn't enjoy it. This is what is weird. It is captivating and the writing transports you to another world but its not enjoyable, if anything I found it disturbing and confusing, both in content and writing style - this isn't a criticism as it is masterful

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Do not touch
