The Last Rhinos: My Battle to Save One of the World's Greatest Creatures Audiobook

The Last Rhinos: My Battle to Save One of the World's Greatest Creatures

Author: Graham Spence, Lawrence Anthony Narrator: Simon Vance, Simon Vance Release Date: October 2013

In this inspiring, heartfelt account, Lawrence Anthony, conservationist and coauthor of The Elephant Whisperer, traces his efforts to save the endangered northern white rhino. When Lawrence Anthony learned that the northern white rhino, living in the war-ravaged Congo, was on the very brink of extinction, he knew he had to act. If the world lost the sub-species, it would be the largest land mammal since the woolly mammoth to go extinct. In The Last Rhinos, Anthony recounts his attempts to save these remarkable animals. The demand for rhino horns in the Far East has turned poaching into a dangerous black market that threatens the lives of not just these rare beasts, but also the rangers who protect them. The northern white rhino's last refuge was in an area controlled by the infamous Lord's Resistance Army, one of the most vicious rebel groups in the world. In the face of unmoving government bureaucracy, Anthony made a perilous journey deep into the jungle to try to find and convince them to help save the rhino. An inspiring story of conservation in the face of brutal war and bureaucratic quagmires, The Last Rhinos will move animal lovers everywhere.

The Calvary Road Audiobook

The Calvary Road

Author: Roy Hession Narrator: Simon Vance, Simon Vance Release Date: February 2011

This is an updated edition of a book written by Missionary and evangelist Roy Hession in 1950 in which he profiles the nature of religious revival and lays out the prerequisites and consequences of the activity of God in the heart of the hungry seeker. Roy Hession (1908-1992) was a British evangelist and author. Hession was born in London in 1908. He was educated at Aldenham School where his introduction to religion led him to expect "anything but boredom" from God. He was very much influenced by their strong emphasis on a personal implementation of the basics of the Christian faith, in particular the healing powers of openness and repentance. His preaching subsequently incorporated these new insights. This brought criticism because of its introspective element, from some he had previously worked with, but it was much appreciated by many Christians on both sides of the Atlantic. Roy Hession died in 1992 but he is remembered for his infectious enthusiasm and his humor, but above all for his unwavering stand on the principles of repentance and grace that had become so precious to him.

C. H. Spurgeon's Autobiography, Volume II: The Full Harvest Audiobook

C. H. Spurgeon's Autobiography, Volume II: The Full Harvest

Author: C.H. Spurgeon Narrator: Simon Vance, Simon Vance Release Date: January 2009

Spurgeon's last thirty years, from the building of the Metropolitan Tabernacle to his death in 1892, saw long years of the full harvest of his youthful efforts. With a congregation of nearly 6,000 in the heart of London and a wider audience of perhaps a million to be addressed weekly through his printed sermon, Spurgeon not only sustained his productivity but even increased the quality of his work. But there is more to Spurgeon than the preacher: we see him also as author, as editor of a monthly magazine, as founder and director of his Pastors' College, and organizer of two orphanages. Throughout the autobiography, Spurgeon records those aspects of life that only an autobiography can: his family circle, the daily labor behind his public works, and the feelings which led him to resist the reformation of the Faith of the Churches. Above all, he records his experiences of God's grace.

After the rise comes the fall When a cyber-attack at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland disables the Hubble telescope and the Nobel Prize winning scientist in charge disappears, the only clues left behind are a cryptic countdown clock and a chilling message displayed on the missing man's computer: Mankind Must Look No Further.

Gabriel, infected and tormented by the deadly virus he carried out of the Citadel, is desperate to return before it spreads.

Sound Man: A Life Recording Hits With the Rolling Stones, the Who, Led Zeppelin, the Eagles, Eric Cl Audiobook

Sound Man: A Life Recording Hits With the Rolling Stones, the Who, Led Zeppelin, the Eagles, Eric Cl

Author: Glyn Johns Narrator: Simon Vance, Simon Vance Release Date: May 2015

Born just outside London in 1942, Glyn Johns was sixteen years old at the dawn of rock and roll. His big break as a producer came on the Steve Miller Band's debut album, Children of the Future, and he went on to engineer or produce iconic albums for the best in the business including Abbey Road with the Beatles. Even more impressive, Johns was perhaps the only person on a given day in the studio who was entirely sober, and so he is one of the most reliable and clear-eyed insiders to tell these stories today. In this entertaining and observant memoir, Johns takes us on a tour of his world during the heady years of the sixties. He remembers helping to get the Steve Miller Band released from jail shortly after their arrival in London, he recalls his impressions of John and Yoko during the Let It Be sessions, and he recounts running into Bob Dylan at JFK and being asked to work on a collaborative album with him, the Stones, and the Beatles, which never came to pass. Johns was there during some of the most iconic moments in rock history, including the Stones' first European tour, and the Beatles' final performance on the roof of their Savile Row recording studio.
