    In the first multivolume biography of Abraham Lincoln to be published in decades, Lincoln scholar Michael Burlingame offers a fresh look at the life of one of America’s greatest presidents. Incorporating the field notes of earlier biographers, along with decades of research in multiple manuscript archives and long-neglected newspapers, this remarkable work will both alter and reinforce our current understanding of America’s sixteenth president. Volume one covers Lincoln’s early childhood, his experiences as a farm boy in Indiana and Illinois, his legal training, and the political ambition that led to a term in Congress in the 1840s. In volume two, Burlingame examines Lincoln’s life during his presidency and the Civil War, narrating in fascinating detail the crisis over Fort Sumter and Lincoln’s own battles with relentless office seekers, hostile newspaper editors, and incompetent field commanders. Burlingame also offers new interpretations of Lincoln’s private life, discussing his marriage to Mary Todd and the untimely deaths of two sons to disease. But through it all, his difficult childhood, his contentious political career, a fratricidal war, and tragic personal losses, Lincoln preserved a keen sense of humor and acquired a psychological maturity that proved to be the North’s most valuable asset in winning the Civil War. This landmark audiobook establishes Burlingame as the most assiduous Lincoln biographer of recent memory and brings Lincoln alive as never before.

    The Diary of Samuel Pepys is one of the most entertaining documents in English history. Written between 1660 and 1669, as Pepys was establishing himself as a key administrator in the Navy Office, it is an intimate portrait of life in seventeenth-century England, covering his professional and personal activities, including, famously, his love of music, theater, food, and wine, as well as his peccadilloes. This Naxos AudioBooks production is the world-premiere recording of the diary in its entirety. It has been divided into three volumes. Volume III presents the last three years of Pepys’s diary. By now he was in his mid-thirties and confident in his ability to deal with differing political factions within the Navy Office.His affection for his wife Elizabeth grows ever stronger, despite wandering eyes, and he finds he is worth £6,000 and more—a considerable sum at that time for the son of a tailor who started with nothing. His concern with his eyesight grows, and it is with some regret that he stops writing his diary at the end of May 1669.

    To understand the culture in which we live, you need to be familiar with the ideas that have shaped it. In Ligonier’s survey series, The Consequences of Ideas, R. C. Sproul traces the contours of Western philosophy throughout history and shows how our culture evolved to what it is today. From ancient Greek thinkers like Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle to Christian philosophers such as Augustine, Anselm, and Aquinas to the shapers of modern thought such as Hume, Kant, and Nietzsche, Sproul demonstrates the consequences of each of these and other important thinkers’ ideas on world events, theology, the fine arts, and culture, as well as our everyday lives. Listen and you will hear echoes of their ideas in your daily conversations, especially as you witness to unbelievers.

    One contemporary scholar and authority on Spurgeon says of this work: “Next to Mr. Spurgeon’s great literary work, The Treasury of David, we consider Lectures to My Students his greatest single contribution to the Christian world. There is more practical wisdom, common sense and sage advice packed within these pages than with any other book of similar size, or content.”  This complete and unabridged edition of Spurgeon’s great work will make it possible for today’s generation to appreciate Spurgeon’s combination of discerning wit and refreshingly practical advice. Included in the twenty-eight chapters of this classic volume are lectures such as:  – The Call to Ministry– The Preacher’s Private Prayer– On the Choice of a Text– On the Voice– The Holy Spirit in Connection with Our Ministry– The Blind Eye and the Deaf Ear– On Conversion as Our Aim– Illustrations in Preaching  As were all of Spurgeon’s messages to his people, each of these lectures is scripture-saturated and Christ-honoring. They move swiftly and are fascinating in their content and sage counsel.

The life and times of the thirty-third President of the United States, Truman provides a deeply moving look at an extraordinary, singular American.   From Truman's small-town, turn-of-the-century boyhood and his transforming experience in the face of war in 1918, to his political beginnings in the powerful Pendergast machine and his rapid rise to prominence in the U.S. Senate, McCullough shows a man of uncommon vitality and strength of character. Here too is a telling account of Truman's momentous decision to use the atomic bomb and the weighty responsibilities that he was forced to confront on the dawning of a new age.

    What is fear?  Where does it come from?  What purpose does it serve?  Why are some fears universal when others vary from person to person and from culture to culture?  In this fascinating book, Pulitzer–prize nominated science writer Rush Dozier, Jr. takes us on a thrilling journey through the brain science and everyday reality of this most human emotion. Fears mold the most mundane aspects of our existence and the very structure of our societies, reflecting in terrorism, violence, secret police, and distrust of outsiders. Yet it is fear itself that simultaneously pushes us to mature and fulfill our deepest human potential.
