4-0 out of 5 stars Informative but casts too wide a net.
Bruce Bawer's book is informative and covers quite a lot of ground in its description of the insidious nature of radical Islam in Europe and how the political elite are more enamoured with political power over a propagandised electorate instead of applying themselves to the defence of freedom. But that is what European style government is all about despite the contemporary terrorism of radical Islam, and is--like democracy--the antithesis of freedom.
5-0 out of 5 stars While Europe Slept: How Radical Islam is Destroying the West
Hardly a more timely subject can be found.Perhaps long overdue, if you want to educate and inform yourself about what is really going on behind the press headlines, you owe it to yourself to read this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful, but exaggerates Europe's fate
Having lived in Europe for a few years, I can safely say that the extreme liberal PC policies of "Sure! Anyone can live here!" mentality towards immigration have lead to a dangerously large anti-European Muslim population. This will be a large issue for the continent in the current century, but is Europe going to become part of a monstrous Islamic Calliphate? Highly doubtful

5-0 out of 5 stars Rick Evans Latest Novel A Winner
Finding Noel grabbed my attention from the very first chapter.As a devoted Evans reader, I found this book one of his best, matching it closely with his first, A Christmas Box.
4-0 out of 5 stars A Warm Holiday Tale
Finding Noel is a sweet story which harkens back to the roots of the author's past Christmas themes of longing for loved ones and fighting for what's most important in this life... and then holding on tight!His fans are in for a wonderful holiday treat... something to savour and to share.

4-0 out of 5 stars A sentimental tale for the holidays
Richard Evans has a history of writing touching stories.His first book The Christmas Box left many of our library patrons touched for weeks, most freely admitting to shedding many tears.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow you have to read this!!!
Reading this book has changed the way I have looked, felt and believed in life. I couldn't put it down, and everyday I keep thinking about it. I have shared with others the aw inspiring inspiration I have received. I am not one to read a lot of spiritual books or self help books. I have read a few but this one definitely surpasses any book I have read in a very long time. I am blown away. And it has made me take stock of my own life and my beliefs and it has shifted. I started thinking about whom in my life do I need to forgive. I truly recommend this book to everyone! We all need it especially now with what is going on in the world today.

5-0 out of 5 stars Life-changing story
I could not put this book down.I've read several other books on the Rwandan genocide and I really appreciate this one the most for breaking down a complex political situation/history into one that is easy to understand for all readers, not to mention one of the most emotionally touching books I've ever read.This book has changed my perspective on life.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Book I've read all year!
I love to read, mostly spiritual self-help books, and a few biographies. I would say I read about 2 books a month on average, sometimes more. Any way I simply could not put this book down. I felt as if I was experiencing everything she was experiencing, and I could not help but admire her faith in God. She reminded me how good God is, and how he can do the impossible if we just trust him. I plan to give the book to a couple people as Christmas presents this year, so that they can truly embrace how blessed they are. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars "The Practice of Prayer"
This book is one of, if not the, best contemporary books on prayer, well suited to the ordinary Christian like me.While most other great books on prayer teach you the kinds, disciple and practice of prayer, "Prayer" by Philip Yancey talks about what prayer IS.As part one of the book states, prayer is essentially "keeping company with God".
5-0 out of 5 stars Balanced
I am a person who has greatly benefited from prayer after major injuries from an accident. Each day I live in the balance of acknowledging the miracles God did through the many prayers of my family and friends, yet living with the limitations/pain my injuries continue to force on me. I found this book to be nicely balanced between those two.
4-0 out of 5 stars Tough topic
Mr. Yancey tackles one of the more difficult aspects of Christianity and deals with many of most common questions and concerns about prayer.He assures us, several times, that we simply don't have all the answers, but he bases his beliefs on what Christ did and said.All his discussions are supported by Biblical texts. The material is challenging, however, he breaks it up with stories and quotes from many people working through the same enormous issues: why was that prayer answered, and that one not? for example.The book is also organized and chapters titled such that you can reread sections as life situations warrant.In the end, it is simply encouraging.There's no formula, no perfect prayer, no checklist.At a recent talk, Mr. Yancey was asked how we know if we're doing it right.His answer will stick with me: if you're praying, you're doing it right.Combined with his encouragement to keep on keeping on, this book on prayer should be inspiring to all. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW!!
This series of books really changed my Life!!I've actually applied what The Masters talk about and it really works!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Not a weight loss or self help book...
I can see how western civilization readers may have a very difficult time accepting Life and Teachings as nothing more than black magic. It goes very deep. This is not a series of books that you sit down and read like the DaVinci code. Have you ever, as an example, opened up the King James version of the New Testament at your hotel room and tried to actually read it and take any of it in? Its tough. Not a page turner. Kind of boooorrring.No wonder we have sunday church to get us through it all. Life and Teachings has to be read in small bites people. Really. Yes, there is a message of sorts that comes out of it: Your religion is right. So is your neighbors and so is there neighbors. Yet it doesnt focus so much on "religion" as it does on the human potential. Thats where its at. And, thats where this read keeps going. This is not an easy book series to get through. Dont pick it up and expect "an answer" right away. You have to work a bit. Like a textbook rather than a Dan Brown Novel. It's laughable that people who read about "men that move mountains or part waters etc" can't comprehend it in anything other than magic. Life and Teachings is a thinker series. You read a bit. You stop. You think. Pick it up later and read some more. Not entertaining nor was it meant to be, but it strikes a lightning bolt at a few nerve endings you didnt know you had. And, no, you won't have to send any money to a special group or PO Box at the end. They dont have a Web site either. Baird Spalding is quite dead as are all the other scientists that went into thosemountains in the late 1800's that resulted in this book series. Read it. Don't worry. You won't grow hair on your palms and it won't corrupt your 21st century thinking on modern christianity.The message of Life and Teachings is; Put down your swords. Everyone's right about why we "are". Buddah, Jesus, Allah, Mohammmed, everyone of you....YOu all came down the same road from the same hilltop and this is an excellent tutorial on how that could be and examples of the human potential. Its nothing new. No revelations.Millions of years have gone by and its all still the same except on-going arguments.

1-0 out of 5 stars jesus throwing thunderbolts?!
The first volume was interesting fiction. Hide a city in a mountain?! In later volumes jesus is throwing thunderbolts and killing the 'enemy' is not the jesus of the new testament. Instead buy Aquarian Gospel, Impersonal Life, Door of Everything and on recincarnation/heaven read testimony of light, but skip the introduction and notice the constant unfolding as in the movie ground hog day ...

5-0 out of 5 stars At last!
I got this book the instant it came out.This is the topic I have been looking for from Deepak. I've always felt that his background in medicine, spiritual experience and wisdom traditions puts him in an almost unique position to really dig into the subject of the afterlife. He really delivers. This is a facinating read for the intellectually and spiritually curious.
1-0 out of 5 stars Pseudo Science
Chopra attempts to use the language of science to disguise absolute rubbish and convoluted thinking. Don't waste your time with this pseudo science dribble.

5-0 out of 5 stars Spirituality Examined
Once again Chopra has explored the edges or our spirituality, of our minds. Many of us who like to consider ourselves spiritual but thinking human beings have grappled with the concept of eternal life and studied the various religions to find an answer.Most are far too rigid.Chopra wants us to explore for ourselves.BRAVO to a courageous man! ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Brief, lovely read
This memoir managed to be both incredibly sad and yet positive and life-affirming at the same time.Abigail Thomas describes the journey she must take in the years after her husband's accident and how she manages to progress from inner turmoil (and at times, the inability to function at all), to a place where she is at peace with her life.Though her husband must remain at a hospital for brain-injured patients, she is able to bring him home for visits and spends time with him at the center. The comments and thoughts from his head are so fascinating...I found myself eagerly waiting to see what he would say the next time.Just wondering about the brain and all that we don't know about it is truly amazing to me.Sometimes he makes pronouncements that appear so profound, and other times he seems in total confusion, and while it's incredibly heartbreaking, it's also mesmerizing to read their conversations together.
5-0 out of 5 stars A voice to be heard
I discovered A Three Dog Life through an article in the New York Times this summer. An excerpt from Abigail Thomas's book appeared in the column, Modern Love. She titled it: "My Husband Survived, the Man I Married Didn't." That is the crux of her book. And with this title, she got me. I, too, have a husband who survived a traumatic brain injury (stroke), and the man I married did not fully survive either.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Most Important Book I've Ever Owned!
This book should be required reading by everyone!I have given away copies of this book, and have one of my own.I have learned more about life from this book - how to deal with it, handle it, and survive it - then any other book I've ever read.
5-0 out of 5 stars Spot-On
I used one of the readings in this book and one of the readings in its sequel, "More Language of Letting Go," as the topics in a recent 12-step meeting I was called on to lead.I was a little bit fearful about using these books, as this was not a meeting of the 12-step program that might be most naturally associated with Ms. Beattie and her writings (although a close cousin).The second person to speak up after I opened the meeting for sharing confirmed my belief that these books were "spot-on," and so I have chosen that as the title of my review.(You know who you are, should you ever read these words, and I thank you once again.)
4-0 out of 5 stars Great message for daily living
I personally believe in the power of daily practice of meditation and focussing on the moment at hand.Being mindful of whats in front of us is the key to life.This book helps with the task of living one day at a time and growing each moment.Highly recommended.Also, would love if you checked out my book which is similar, "Your Daily Walk with the Great Minds of the Past and Present."Thanks and enjoy your daily journey. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Hated to See This End
Sometimes it's difficult to come into a series on the last installment without feeling lost.Luckily, finding the subject matter and people to be so interesting with lovely characterizations and references to previous events, I quickly picked up with where the story was at that particular moment.
4-0 out of 5 stars Yes, It is the end
I have to agree with the previous reviewers that this book wrapped things up too quickly and didn't tie up all of the loose ends.I would've liked to have seen the story of Daniel elaborated on more and also would've loved to have found out the truth about Isaac's kidnapping.Who did it?How did it happen?I hate that I was left with too many questions.
4-0 out of 5 stars Is that the end??
After eagerly awaiting the next book in this series, I was anxious to find out if Ben really was Isaac, if Lou would come back to Sam, if Esther and Zeke could find peace.... There was soo-o-o much to cover that I was shocked to see that this was the last book in the series. How would they cover it all?Well, apparently, very quickly! Things happened too fast, people changed too quickly, things were resolved tidily and with great speed.Though we don't really know if Lou will come back to stay, or how Esther and Zeke will fare with the shunning, we do know that Annie and Ben/Isaac will live happily ever after.

1-0 out of 5 stars This is no Little Prince
I feel like I am pushing against the tide, but perhaps I can warn others, like me, who agreed to read this book because of comparisons to St. Exupery's classic, The Little Prince.It is too late to warn off my book club.Others expecting anything remotely as charming, disarming, witty, and downright delightful as Le Petit Prince should look elsewhere.I have read St. Exupery, Mr. Coelho, and you are no St. Exupery.
1-0 out of 5 stars Very Confusing Text!!!
I'm in an eighth grade honors class, and had to read this book for an assignment.Unfortunately, I found the book vey boring and extremely hard to understand.The text was very confusing, with all the different lessons, all being learned at the same time.I do not recommend this book to anyone under 16.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beware of Foreign Editions
WARNING: The Alchemist is one of my favorite books. In fact, it was my inspiration when I set off on the journey to make my own dream come true--to realize my own "Personal Legend". The original was written in Portugese so what we see is a translation.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easily Understandable
I am not new to christianity, but I am new to reading the bible and knowing of the events that took place.I found this extremely useful as a bible and I absolutely love how Joyce Meyer relates the information to daily living.For me, it makes it easier to understand when I can relate it to my daily life. I would not consider this a study bible, I actually consider it my bible. I read from this bible and carry it to church.Joyce Meyer includes "Life Points" within the pages, along with prayers and other information from her.I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a clear understanding of the bible.

5-0 out of 5 stars I guess that depends on how you define "study"
I know that the term "study Bible" is usually used for a Bible that has like 3 or 5 cross-references for each verse, and when a couple of times I tried to look them up I was always wondering in exactly what way that cross-reference could be helpful or deepen my understanding of God's Word... %\. It is nice to know that this or that word appears in those and that verses all over the Bible and stuff, but HOW IS IT HELPFUL?
3-0 out of 5 stars But yes, it IS claimed to be a study bible!
I am a faithful Joyce Meyer's fan, and I watch her program M-F every week. Her new, upcoming (and now here)Everyday Life Bible is being advertised several times per program. And yes, folks, during that television commercial (and I listened this morning specifically for this, after reading the below reviews) it IS touted as being a STUDY BIBLE. I can't give my actual review as I have not yet seen it's contents....but am unfortunately forced here to rate it numerically! But I CAN tell you how it is advertised. I can only surmise that despite either accolades or disappointments, either way, it seems reader's appear to be disappointed with the lack of study tools inside. ... Read more

It's hard for me to understand the extreme reactions to this book. You don't have to agree with everything a book says to get at least some good out of it. I found it to be helpful. It did a good job of making me think about life. Are we just specks floating about on the wind, or are we indeed here for a purpose. The book doesn't delve into theological tedium, thankfully. Mostly, it's just practical stuff. I tell everyone to read a book called The Strongest Defense of Christianity after this one. The Strongest Defense of Christianity seems to be the book of our time in its field. ... Read more

Editorial Review

This true story about the love between a spiritual mentor and his pupil has soared to the bestseller list for many reasons. For starters: it reminds us of the affection and gratitude that many of us still feel for the significant mentors of our past. It also plays out a fantasy many of us have entertained: what would it be like to look those people up again, tell them how much they meant to us, maybe even resume the mentorship? Plus, we meet Morrie Schwartz--a one of a kind professor, whom the author describes as looking like a cross between a biblical prophet and Christmas elf. And finally we are privy to intimate moments of Morrie's final days as he lies dying from a terminal illness. Even on his deathbed, this twinkling-eyed mensch manages to teach us all about living robustly and fully. Kudos to author and acclaimed sports columnist Mitch Albom for telling this universally touching story with such grace and humility. Read more

This book was definitely one of those works where you can identify with what they are going through, yet you still have something to learn. I am a cargiver for a lady who has a disease almost identical to that of ALS (Lou Gehrigs) and the symptoms he describes in this book are ones that I am facing everyday I work with her.

This book is not inspiring, it is unfortunate.Morrie sounded like a great man who knew how to live his life.However, it is unfortunate that media vultures like Oprah Winfrey, Ted Koppel, and the author (another Oprah-manufactured "celebrity" like Dr. Phil) took everything that was probably special about this man and trivialized his words, commercialized his life, and exploited him and his values purely for financial gain.Albom mentions that the advance money for the book paid for Morrie's medical bills...what about all the money after he died?Hmm...he kind of left that part out.Seems that Mitch didn't really learn that much about greed from his old professor after all, which makes him sort of a hypocrite.What could have been a very special book in the hands of a competent author, instead gets a 200-page shlock treatment, from a sixth-grade caliber sports-writer (who apparently can't write many words longer than two syllables) that is watered down so that the masses can swallow it without too much critical thought.If I'd have known this was one of "Oprah's Picks" I wouldn't have even bothered with it, but I have also heard so much praise for this book that I figured it was at least worth a read.It wasn't.It was not inspiring, it was trite, contrived, shallow, preachy, poorly written...which seems to be a trademark of all of Albom's books.Morrie, you deserved better and I hope you are resting peacefully.I suppose it is good that this book is at least inspiring people, but at the same time you have to wonder about the types of people who would be inspired by this simple-minded shlock.Anyone raised in any decent, civilized background probably knew all this stuff already.I think the only people on this earth who have a true sense of what Morrie was about are his surviving friends, family, cohorts and students.I felt no connection to Morrie with this tacky treatment of a powerful subject, which is very unfortunate.I agree with another review that said that if you want some really great, inspiring words, read the Bible, Koran, Torah, etc. and keep away from this tacky book.Heck, read Siddhartha, thats probably a much better choice.Mitch, your grade on this thesis is an "F -"

5-0 out of 5 stars A Lifetime with Morrie
As I sit down to write this review I find myself not looking into the book to see what I wrote in the margins, but trying to remember what I learned from the book.I once had a professor tell me "Shawn, you will never remember what the text tells you, but you will remember what the book taught you".This is one of those types of books and as you are reading it, you feel like you are a part of the story.Throughout the story Morrie tries to relay some of the lessons he has learned, and after reading the book I have realized that they are the most important kind of lessons: lessons on living life.I am not being vague about the content of this story in hopes of enticing you to read this, but I simply want you to sit down with this book without any expectations.Have a relationship with it and it will teach you amazing things. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Reminder
This book is a fresh and welcome reminder that the Lord desires us to be at His feet so that we might hear what it is that He is teaching us.In a "Martha" stewart world, we can "get in trouble" if we spend all of our time in service and not enough time resting at the instruction of the Lord.She chose the better of the two.We need to choose to make ourselves still before Him, and this book is wonderfully set up to help us do just that!Thank you, Joanna!
5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book for modern-day "Marthas"
What woman has not identified with Martha while reading Luke's account of Jesus' visit to Lazarus and his two sisters?It is easy to rationalize and say that the meal had to be prepared and someone had to take on the responsibility of doing it, but Joanna Weaver shows the reader that this is not the point of the story.When we have Jesus near us, we need to turn to Him and learn from Him.We need to order our priorities so that worship and fellowship with Him come first, and all other things will go better with His guidance.Weaver takes us through some of her spiritual struggles and shows us that Satan can work through distraction, discouragement and doubt to undermine our spiritual life and interaction with the Lord.She gives practical strategies for setting aside worry, so that we can be more productive Christians and urges us to share "Living Room intimacy" with Jesus, which is carefully balanced with the duties of the Kitchen.This is a valuable book for any Christian woman who is attempting to balance her busy life of service with quiet contemplation and worship.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good stuff...
This book is full of good, solid Bibical truths and hits on many different topics that I think most women can relate to.It definitely gives practical and godly advice at how to find intimacy with God in everyday life.While the book probably has a target audience for women older than myself (after college and probably women who are married and have children), it still has spoken to me.I would recommend this book to other women as it is practical and an interesting read.Joanna Weaver relates effectively to the audience and her voice is not a didactic or preachy.I think she speaks from a heart that realizes the importance of seeking an intimate relationship with God.If it is the cry of your heart to have a more intimate relationship with God in this busy world I would encourage you to give this book a shot.Its practical and enjoyable. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Is Darwinism bad for the environment?
On one level this is an eloquent plea for an environmental awakening sounding the alarm on the destruction of species diversity. But this clarion call is marred by the introduction of Wilson's Darwinian obsessions. The age of environmental exploitation has also been the age of the reign of the false theoretical constructs of Darwin and his misleading and socially destructive theory of natural selection. The book even includes a hectoring section about the laws of biology, which is bad science and concealed propaganda. Wilson should know better. Biologists fancy themselves the sages of nature, but in fact the reductionist positivism of their methodology constitutes a misunderstanding of nature and reflects the concealed ideology of classical liberalism that is responsible for the indifferent ravaging of natural resources and environments. So behind the fine words Wilson is really a spokesman and ideologist for the problem, not the solution.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Plea for the Religious & the Secular to Work Together for the Biosphere
Thank you Edward O. Wilson for taking this burden on your shoulders; for making the plea to the religious among us to abandon the Dominionist principle that the Earth is here to be bent to humankind's will and save the biodiversity that makes our lives livable.
5-0 out of 5 stars One long appeal
When Charles Darwin published "The Origin of Species" he declared it to be "one long argument".Today, less than 150 years later, Edward O. Wilson explains that the one species omitted [except for one sentence] from the "argument" is devastating the life of the planet.In one long appeal to a fictional Baptist pastor, Wilson describes what is clear to all but a few dedicated die-hards - life on this planet is in deep trouble.The die-hards are firmly identified in the opening passages; Christians in the US who regard themselves as "biblical literalists".Such folk expect the Apocalypse soon and saving the environment is of little concern.

4-0 out of 5 stars Book for the In-Betweens
Being a church planter in the South, I was ready for this book to blow me away. I'd read other titles that started with the similar "something is wrong with the church today..." and this book made the case just as well, if not better, than most other books on the same subject. The real meat in most of these books is in how and what it communicates as a solution.
5-0 out of 5 stars Out of the club and into the kingdom
Have church growth strategies in North America -- which have conspicuously built high profile megachurches and celebrity-like megachurch pastors -- had a net positive impact on 21st century North American culture? A net advancement of the church's mission in North America? That would be a difficult argument to make critically. The competition between congregations has instead arrived at a result wherein "the transfer of Christians from the dinghies to the cruise ships is pretty well complete." The bigger clubs' "member services" are better. The "increasingly high-maintenance church consumer" is mollified ("cruise ship" Christians* are, more accurately it seems, "Churchians"). But is the kingdom of God advanced?
5-0 out of 5 stars Challenging
The pastoral team at our church went through this book and on many levels the direction we are headed was in some ways confirmed through the issues presented in this book.

Forget this externalist formalist farce.
5-0 out of 5 stars Still.... this book is valuable to me!
This book has remained very popular among catechists in my parish.A friend got it for me before I was Catholic, and of I am Catholic.There are many things in this book that are put more clearly than in I guess any other book I've read since this one.
4-0 out of 5 stars The facts with a punch
The best I can say about Catholicism for Dummies is that it has done what it set out to do in explaining apparently all of the major points of Catholic theology and practice. For the rest, I can only point out that authors John Trigilio and Kenneth Brighenti are, to say the least, enthusiastic advocates of Catholicism. In that, too, they have perfectly encapsulated what it is to be a Catholic in the world. I don't wish to undermine the efforts of the authors in showing the reader how Catholics think, but at the same time they are highly partisan pastors. They explain what Catholicism is, and do it very well, but it is clear in countless subtle ways that they are defending and promoting what the Catholic church says and thinks, so for that as well I must evaluate them.
