Using the Bible as the foundation, you’ll learn how to develop a Christian perspective on key issues, including political activism;environmentalism;the cult of celebrity;entertainment and escapism;homosexual marriage;abortion, birth control, and surrogacy;euthanasia and suicide;disasters and epidemics;immigration; andGod and the problem of evil.Also included is a topical reference guide of Bible verses that address key concerns―a guide that will arm you with right thinking and biblical answers to challenging questions.Available Formats: Download, CD, MP3 CD5.5 hrs • Jan/17/2017 • Unabridged
A great writer’s lush, panoramic novel: the story of an ordinary man, his century, and his home.Jamaica Kincaid’s first obsession, the island of Antigua, comes vibrantly to life under the gaze of Mr. Potter, an illiterate taxi chauffeur who makes his living along the wide, open roads that pass the only towns he has ever seen and the graveyard where he will be buried. The sun shines squarely overhead, the ocean lies on every side, and suppressed passion fills the air. Misery infects the unstudied, slow pace of this island and of Mr. Potter’s days. As the narrative unfolds in linked vignettes, his story becomes the story of a vital, crippled community. Kincaid strings together a moving picture of Mr. Potter’s ancestors—beginning with memories of his father, a poor fisherman, and his mother, who committed suicide—and the outside world that presses in on his life, in the form of his Lebanese employer and, later, a couple fleeing World War II. Within these surroundings, Mr. Potter struggles to live at ease: to purchase a car, to have girlfriends, to shake off the encumbrance of his daughters—one of whom will return to Antigua after he dies and tell his story with equal measures of distance and sympathy. In Mr. Potter, her most luminous, ambitious work to date, Kincaid breathes life into a figure unlike any in contemporary fiction, an individual consciousness emerging gloriously out of an unexamined life.Available Formats: Download, CD, MP3 CD4.9 hrs • Jan/17/2017 • Unabridged
A beautiful, heartrending literary memoir about the tragic death of the author’s beloved older sister and a tribute to their bond.When Sheila Kohler was thirty-seven, she received the heart-stopping news that her sister Maxine, only two years older, was killed when her husband drove them off a deserted road in Johannesburg. Stunned by the news, she immediately flew back to the country where she was born, determined to find answers and forced to reckon with his history of violence and the lingering effects of their most unusual childhood—one marked by death and the misguided love of their mother.In her signature spare and incisive prose, Sheila Kohler recounts the lives she and her sister led. Flashing back to their storybook childhood at the family estate, Crossways, Kohler tells of the death of her father when she and Maxine were girls, which led to the family abandoning their house and the girls being raised by their mother, at turns distant and suffocating. We follow them to the cloistered Anglican boarding school where they first learn of separation and later their studies in Rome and Paris where they plan grand lives for themselves—lives that are interrupted when both marry young and discover they have made poor choices. Kohler evokes the bond between sisters and shows how that bond changes but never breaks, even after death.Available Formats: Download, CD, MP3 CD15.1 hrs • Jan/17/2017 • Unabridged
