In True Discipleship William MacDonald highlights some principles of New Testament discipleship and challenges every genuine Christian believer. He makes clear that nothing less than an all-out commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ is required of us. The savior seeks those who will give him first place in their lives. To be a true disciple is to be a bond slave of Jesus Christ and to find that his service is perfect freedom. There is liberty in the step of all who can say, ´´I love my master...I will not go out free´´. As well as the original True Discipleship, the two booklets Where is your Treasure? and Lord Break Me ,also by William Macdonald, are included in this new version. A word about the author: William MacDonald (1917 - 2007). William (Bill) MacDonald was born in Massachusetts. His parents were from the Isle of Lewis and when he was six years old, his family moved to Stornoway, Scotland, later moving back to Massachusetts. A commended worker for 60 years, a teacher, preacher, mentor, and author of 84 books, including the Believer´s Bible Commentary, William MacDonald was a man who said and wrote much. Yet, for those who knew him well, it was his life that left the greatest impression. Speaking of the Lord Jesus, the Bible says, ´´the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked´´ (1 John 2:6). Bill wrote in his commentary, ´´Jesus´ life, as set forth in the Gospels, is our pattern and guide. It is not a life which we can live in our own strength or energy, but is only possible in the power of the Holy Spirit. Our responsibility is to turn our lives over to Him unreservedly, and allow Him to live His life in and through us.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Ansdell.

Maseratis are true luxury cars that will always remain exclusive because of their very nature and that is the way it should be. After some years in the doldrums Maserati is back with a vengeance and the resurgence began in 1998 with the 3200 GT coupe. Today´s range is, for the performance connoisseur, nigh on perfect with the beautifully styled 4200 GT complete with a drop-top version and for the family there is the gorgeous Quattroporte.
´´I had no idea who has just hit us, and my mind didn´t think to consider if they were all right or not, or what circumstances might have caused them to cross the median and strike us. I simply looked at the car in silence. Then I heard a voice that was not my own in my mind as clearly as if it had come from someone seated next to me. It was straightforward and filled with power, and the voice said, ´Let it go!´´´ On a cold February night in 2007, a devoted father of four and a seventeen-year-old drunk driver both received life sentences. In one violent, devastating instant, both faced a drastically different - and uncertain - future. But as Chris Williams sat in his demolished vehicle, staring at the car that had just caused the death of his wife, his unborn baby, his nine-year-old daughter, and his eleven-year-old son, he committed to do something extraordinary: he would forgive. That decision launched Chris on a journey toward healing that affected his family and friends, the young man who caused the accident, and an entire community - a community that would face another deadly tragedy just a few days later. Chris´s message of forgiveness is an empowering invitation to all who have suffered, however unjustly, to lay down their burdens and let it go. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Williams.

In 2007, US Army Specialist Jorge G. Sandoval Jr. was charged with murder by the very government he had sworn to serve. While deployed to the most dangerous area in Iraq known as the ´´Triangle of Death´´, Sandoval, an airborne infantryman and elite sniper, was instructed to ´´take the shot´´ and kill an enemy insurgent wearing civilian clothes. Two weeks later, Army Criminal Investigation Command descended upon Sandoval´s unit and began interrogating the soldiers, trying to link Sandoval and others to war crimes, including murder. Captain Craig W. Drummond was the JAG military defense attorney assigned to Sandoval´s case. ´´The case blew up and was closely followed by reporters around the world. After all, a soldier is trained to follow orders, not ask questions or second-guess authority. I knew I needed to prove his innocence or risk other soldiers being tried and convicted for simply doing their job.´´ Saving Sandoval covers the events from the moment the trigger is pulled through the trial in a US military compound on the outskirts of Baghdad during the height of US military surge of troops into Iraq. The audiobook brings the listener into the reality of modern warfare in a post-September 11th environment where the enemy does not always wear a uniform and - if an event makes headlines - military leaders are quick to point the blame on the lowest ranking soldiers regardless of the injustice. The fast-paced and detailed account of the investigation and trial testimony from elite Army snipers brings the listener into the courtroom and onto the battlefield of Iraq. 1. Language: English.

In May of 2007, in a small, quiet town in the South Moravia region of the Czech Republic, a technical glitch - a simple, accidental crossing of signals - revealed a terrible case of child abuse, and an entire nation watched transfixed with horror as the grisly extent of the perversion of the maternal instinct was revealed. Two small brothers named Jakub and Ondrej, nine and seven years old respectively, were revealed to have suffered confinement, mutilation, psychological brutality, and cannibalism at the hands of several people - foremost among them their own mother and her sister. The ensuing investigation and trial captivated the country as a web of secrecy and manipulation was laid bare. That entire nation´s attention was transfixed as the disappearance of a teenage girl revealed a daring case of concealed identity and international intrigue, culminating in a 1,000-mile chase in the depths of a Scandinavian winter. The allegations that were levelled would keep any parent of a young child awake at night. A secretive cult operating in close proximity to children: stealing, forging medical records, and possibly attempting to create a new messiah were in full swing. All the while its members appeared, on the surface, to be models of excellent caregivers. This is the story of the infamous Kuřim Case, an investigation that engrossed the public and media of a whole country for two years. It is a story of intense cruelty and sadism, inflicted on the most vulnerable members of society. If you are especially sensitive to accounts of the suffering of children, you may find it advisable not to listen any farther. If, however, you seek to understand the darker side of human nature by coming face to face with it, then this audiobook is for you. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ernie Sprance.
