Uncertain. Confused. Overwhelmed. Many Christians feel bombarded by the messages they hear and the trends they see in our rapidly changing world. How can we resist being conformed to the pattern of this world? What will faithfulness to Christ look like in these tumultuous times? How can we be true to the gospel in a world where myths and false visions of the world so often prevail? In This is Our Time, Trevin Wax provides snapshots of 21st-century American life in order to help Christians understand the times. By analyzing our common beliefs and practices (smartphone habits, entertainment intake, our view of shopping, sex, marriage, politics, and life´s purpose), Trevin helps us see through the myths of society to the hope of the gospel. As faithful witnesses to Christ, Trevin writes, we must identify the longing behind society´s most cherished myths (what is good, true, beautiful), expose the lie at the heart of these myths (what is false and damaging), and show how the gospel tells a better story - one that exposes the lie but satisfies the deeper longing. 1.

Justin wasn´t shopping for one. But, while on vacation on the East Coast, he purchased a cathedral style radio from an antique store. When he got it back to the hotel and turned it on, he was surprised at what he heard. Terrified voices from three centuries ago spilled into his hotel room as he listened to a terrible storm battering a passenger ship at sea. Then, in the midst of the fearful cries and shouts for mercy from passengers on the ship, in the distance, a man heard some people singing a hymn. How could they be so calm at a time like this? How can we Christians be so calm at a time like this? How can we reach the throne of God and be blessed with permanent peace and saved from the storm of this modern culture battering our hearts and minds today? In the recent past many Christians obtained what has come to be called, a ´´second blessing´´ from God in which their hearts, souls, and minds were filled with pentecostal power. Justin and his new found friends listened intently as his supernatural radio scanned the past, finding these long forgotten saints whose wisdom and experience seem no longer relevant today. But is that true? John Wesley, a co-founder of the Methodist church, said, ´´Light yourself on fire with passion and people will come from miles around to watch you burn.´´ Did the Christian church miss a chance to catch the world on fire with the Gospel? Will that old radio reveal a secret that could set a holy fire ablaze within each of us? Stay tuned. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Vic Zarley.

´´A couple years back, I was at the Phoenix airport bar. It was empty except for one heavy-set, gray bearded, grizzled guy who looked like he just rode his donkey into town after a long day of panning for silver in them thar hills. He ordered a Jack Daniels straight up, and that´s when I overheard the young guy with the earring behind the bar asking him if he had ID. At first the old sea captain just laughed. But the guy with the twinkle in his ear asked again. At this point it became apparent that he was serious. Dan Haggerty´s dad fired back, ´You´ve got to be kidding me, son.´ The bartender replied, ´New policy. Everyone has to show their ID.´ Then I watched Burl Ives reluctantly reach into his dungarees and pull out his military identification card from World War II.´´ It´s a sad and eerie harbinger of our times that the Oprah-watching, crystal-rubbing, Whole Foods-shopping moms and their whipped attorney husbands have taken the ability to reason away from the poor schlub who makes the Bloody Marys. What we used to settle with common sense or a fist, we now settle with hand sanitizer and lawyers. Adam Carolla has had enough of this insanity and he´s here to help us get our collective balls back. In Fifty Years We´ll All Be Chicks is Adam´s comedic gospel of modern America. He rips into the absurdity of the culture that demonized the peanut butter and jelly sandwich, turned the nation´s bathrooms into a lawless free-for-all of urine and fecal matter, and put its citizens at the mercy of a bunch of minimum wagers with axes to grind. Peppered between complaints, Carolla shares candid anecdotes from his day to day life as well as his past Sunday football at Jimmy Kimmel´s house, his attempts to raise his kids in a society that he mostly disagrees with, his big showbiz break, and much, much more. Brilliantly showcasing Adam´s spot-on sense of humor, this book cements his status as a cultural commentator/comedian/complainer extraordinaire.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Carolla.

Learn about the Last Supper with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. ´´While they were eating, he took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them, and said, ‘Take it; this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, and they all drank from it. He said to them, ‘This is my blood of the covenant, which will be shed for many.” In the Gospel according to Mark, we read of the night before Jesus was arrested, before he was taken to his death on the cross. On his last night on earth, he shares bread and wine with his twelve chosen disciples. This - his Last Supper - continues to be remembered and rehearsed as an important event in the Christian faith. Alongside the act of baptism, it is held up as one of the most important traditions of Christianity, for both were introduced and commanded by Jesus himself.
