Glory Days: The Summer of 1984 and the 90 Days That Changed Sports and Culture Forever Audiobook

Glory Days: The Summer of 1984 and the 90 Days That Changed Sports and Culture Forever

Author: L. Jon Wertheim Narrator: Chris Abell Release Date: June 2021

A rollicking guided tour of one extraordinary summer, when some of the most pivotal and freakishly coincidental stories all collided and changed the way we think about modern sports The summer of 1984 was a watershed moment in the birth of modern sports when the nation watched Michael Jordan grow from college basketball player to professional athlete and star. That summer also saw ESPN's rise to media dominance as the country's premier sports network and the first modern, commercialized, profitable Olympics. Magic Johnson and Larry Bird's rivalry raged, Martina Navratilova and John McEnroe reigned in tennis, and Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon made pro wrestling a business, while Donald Trump pierced the national consciousness as a pro football team owner. It was an awakening in the sports world, a moment when sports began to morph into the market-savvy, sensationalized, moneyed, controversial, and wildly popular arena we know today.   In the tradition of Bill Bryson's One Summer: America, 1927, L. Jon Wertheim captures these 90 seminal days against the backdrop of the nostalgia-soaked 1980s, to show that this was the year we collectively traded in our ratty Converses for a pair of sleek, heavily branded, ingeniously marketed Nikes. This was the year that sports went big-time.

Kill the Noise: Finding Meaning above the Madness Audiobook

Kill the Noise: Finding Meaning above the Madness

Author: Ryan Ries Narrator: Chris Abell, Christina Boudreau, Ryan Ries Release Date: May 2021

It doesn't matter who you are or what you've done-God wants a relationship with you.   Social media, television, video games, drugs, pornography - there is so much noise distracting us from what is important in life that it is nearly impossible to hear God's truth that He will take you as you are. When we finally kill the noise of the world, we'll discover in the silence a loving Savior who is waiting to forgive us and offer us a purpose for our lives.   Ryan Ries is living proof of this truth. Growing up in Los Angeles as the son of a mega-church pastor but surrounded by the music, skate, and snowboard industries, Ryan felt a tug-of-war between the church and the world. It was in the skate and music culture that he found his passion and his identity. As a result, he walked away from God and dove head first into the world, losing his way in alcohol, drugs, and sex, which led to anxiety, brokenness, and emptiness. Kill the Noise tells Ryan's story about finding God in the messiness of life, and lets you know how you too can find peace, joy, and purpose in Jesus Christ. This book will be a tool to help you kill the noise of the world so you can hear God's voice telling you that He loves you and that you belong to Him.

The Fuel & the Flame: Ignite Your Life & Your Campus for Jesus Christ Audiobook

The Fuel & the Flame: Ignite Your Life & Your Campus for Jesus Christ

Author: Paul Worcester, Steve Shadrach Narrator: Chris Abell Release Date: March 2021

(2020 edition, updated from original 2003 edition) This is a new and completely revised edition of The Fuel and the Flame, originally published in 2003. Authored by Steve Shadrach and Paul Worcester. College: A four-year (or more!) window of time where a student can become and accomplish all that God has for them. This book will help you do just that as you discover a vision for your life, the kind of personal and spiritual foundation you need to build, and practical ways to share your faith, disciple others, and impact the world for Jesus Christ. The challenge? If you will fully submit yourself to the Lord to be the fuel, God will ignite your life and spread the flame of the gospel across your campus and world. So beware, what you hold in your hands may forever change you. You in? This is the totally revised and updated version of The Fuel and the Flame! This one was written with students in mind. The original version was published in 2003 and quickly became the go-to book for a myriad of campus-based and church-based college ministries around the U.S. and beyond. However, it is high time we reexamined everything for this new generation of students in light of the challenges and opportunities that lie before you. Our goal in this book is to focus on a few of the simple commands and modeling Jesus provided us. To be able to easily remember these commands, we will refer to them as EDM (evangelism, disciple-making, and mission mobilization). We hope that God uses the basics of EDM shared in this book to transform your everyday life and change your heart to be more like His own. So, if you want to walk with God more closely, have a vision for your life and ministry, develop a practical plan for you to lead others to Christ and make disciples, and to impact the world for the glory of God…you’ve come to the right place! Read this on your own. Or take a small group through it. Encourage your whole college ministry to use it!

Ancient Remedies: Secrets to Healing with Herbs, Essential Oils, CBD, and the Most Powerful Natural  Audiobook

Ancient Remedies: Secrets to Healing with Herbs, Essential Oils, CBD, and the Most Powerful Natural

Author: Josh Axe Narrator: Chris Abell Release Date: February 2021

Bestselling author Dr. Josh Axe explains how to treat more than seventy diseases, lose weight, and increase vitality with traditional healing practices passed down through the ages. Long before the first pharmaceutical companies opened their doors in the 1850s, doctors treated people, not symptoms. And although we've become used to popping pills, Americans have finally had it with the dangerous side effects, addiction and over-prescribing-and they're desperate for an alternative. Here's the good news: That alternative has been here all along in the form of ancient treatments used for eons in traditional Chinese, Ayurvedic and Greek medicine. Ancient Remedies is the first comprehensive layman's guide that will bring together and explain to the masses the very best of these time-tested practices. In Ancient Remedies, Dr. Axe explores the foundational concepts of ancient healing-eating right for your type and living in sync with your circadian clock. Readers will learn how traditional practitioners identified the root cause of each patient's illness, then treated it with medicinal herbs, mushrooms, CBD, essential oils, and restorative mind-body practices. What's more, they'll discover how they can use these ancient treatments themselves to cope with dozens of diseases, from ADHD to diabetes, hypothyroidism, autoimmune disease, and beyond. Through engaging language and accessible explanations, Ancient Remedies teaches readers everything they need to know about getting, and staying, healthy-without toxic, costly synthetic drugs.

American Awakening: Identity Politics and Other Afflictions of Our Time Audiobook

American Awakening: Identity Politics and Other Afflictions of Our Time

Author: Joshua Mitchell Narrator: Chris Abell Release Date: February 2021

In American Awakening, Joshua Mitchell compares today's secular politics of identity-skin tone, gender, and sexuality-to the religious awakenings of America's past. The book asks where the clerisy of identity politics came from, how identity politics claimed a death grip on liberalism, and how can it be defeated. We are living in the midst of an American Awakening, without God and without forgiveness. The first two Awakenings brought religious renewal; the third-the social gospel movement and its aftermath (1880-1910)-invoked the authority of religion to bring about political and social transformation, but lost sight of Christianity along the way.The Awakening through which we are now living comprehends politics through the categories of religion without recognizing it, has no place for the God who judges or the God who forgives, and has brought America to a dead end, beyond which no one can see. Identity politics renders judgment not based on sins of omission and commission, but on the publicly visible, unalterable attributes that precede whatever citizens might do or leave undone. Identity politics offers no forgiveness for transgressions, because they are irredeemable. Liberal politics was once concerned with working together to build a common world. Identity politics has transformed politics. It has turned politics into a religious venue of sacrificial offering.For the moment, the irredeemable scapegoat is the white, heterosexual, man. After he is humiliated and purged, on whom will innocent victims turn their cathartic rage? White women? Black men?Identity politics is the antiegalitarian spiritual eugenics of our age. It demands that pure and innocent groups ascend, and the stained transgressor groups be purged. If religious revivals are understood as collective efforts to redeem a stained world, then identity politics is an American religious revival-this time around, without God.

Obsession Audiobook


Author: Byron York Narrator: Chris Abell Release Date: December 2020

From the moment Donald Trump was elected president-even before he was inaugurated-Democrats called for his impeachment. That call, starting on the margins of the party and the press, steadily grew until it became a deafening media and Democratic obsession. It culminated first in the Mueller report-which failed to find any evidence of criminal wrongdoing on the part of the president-and then in a failed impeachment. And yet, even now, the Democrats and their media allies insist that President Trump must be guilty of something. They still accuse him of being a Russian stooge and an obstructer of justice. They claim he was "not exonerated" by the Mueller report. But the truth, as veteran reporter Byron York makes clear-using his unequaled access to sources inside Congress and the White House-is that Democrats and the media were gripped by an anti-Trump hysteria that blinded them to reality. In a fast-moving story of real-life Washington intrigue, York reveals: Why Donald Trump-at first-resisted advice to fire FBI director James ComeyThe strategy behind the Trump defense team's full cooperation with Mueller's investigators-and how they felt betrayed by MuellerHow the Mueller team knew very early in the investigation that there was no evidence of "Russian collusion"Why the Trump defense team began to suspect that Mueller was not really in charge of the special counsel investigationWhy Nancy Pelosi gave up trying to restrain her impeachment-obsessed partyWhy Trump's lawyers-certain of his innocence in the Mueller investigation-were even less worried about the Democrats' Ukraine investigation.Byron York takes you inside the deliberations of the president's defense counsel, interviews congressional Republicans who were shocked at the extremism of their Democratic colleagues-and resolute in opposing them-and draws an unforgettable portrait of an administration under siege from an implacable-and obsessed-opposition party.

Author: Albert Chen Narrator: Chris Abell Release Date: December 2019

The story of the rise of daily fantasy sports, and the brilliant entrepreneurs disrupting the way we consume sports The inside story of the rise, fall, and rise of FanDuel and DraftKings-two companies that began as obscure start-ups and, seemingly overnight, became billion-dollar companies, and just as quickly found themselves the target of the FBI and Department of Justice and the center of a national scandal.

The War on History: The Conspiracy to Rewrite America's Past Audiobook

The War on History: The Conspiracy to Rewrite America's Past

Author: Jarrett Stepman Narrator: Chris Abell Release Date: December 2019

America is hopelessly divided, but more worryingly, the ideas and "mystic chords of memory" that rest at the cornerstone of our civilization and bind the generations are being severed, attacked, and forgotten. The left has set out to shatter these bonds with a war on American history-the fundamental concepts, institutions, and icons that make our country what it is. And we have failed to protect our history, allowing Hollywood, educators, and the media to rewrite the story of America. We have ignored the invaluable lessons of our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. If we wish to hold onto their vision of America, we must once again try to understand and defend the world-shaking ideas, actions, and men who made America great.
