The Titanic disaster of April 15, 1912 has been described as one of the most fascinating single events in human history. The sinking of the Titanic has left an indelible impression and vast psychological impact on the world. Titanic has spawned books, plays, poems, films, drama films, songs, concerts, musicals, novels, video games, newsreels, slideshows, multimedia works, and works of art. It has been noted that Titanic spawned the largest number of songs regarding any disaster or event in American history. The event became a popular theme for balladeers, blues, bluegrass, and country singers in the Southern United States. British songwriters commemorated the disaster with appeals religious, chauvinistic, and heroic sentiments. One person has suggested that the reaction to the Titanic can only be compared to the assassinations of Lincoln and Kennedy. The three most written about subjects since April 1912 are Jesus, the American Civil War, and Titanic. The story of the RMS Titanic has been interpreted in numerous ways - as a symbol of technological hubris, a classic disaster tale, an indictment regarding class divisions of the society at that time, a kind of morality play, a romantic tragedy, and somewhere between a Greek and Elizabethan tragedy. There have been so many books written about the Titanic that there are very few that will tell you anything new, but every now and then you find an absolute gem. Charles Hagan´s audiobook adds to the Titanic story with his 12 Titanic Lessons for Christians! There are danger lessons, time lessons, and motivational lessons all culled from the disaster that was Titanic! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Huff.

If so, this is the course on prayer you´ve always wanted. With a simple yet powerful approach, Talking with God: Lessons about Prayer will help you enliven and deepen your life of prayer. Your presenter is Jesuit priest Fr. James Kubicki, the national director of the Apostleship of Prayer, the ´´pope´s own prayer group´´.

In the second chapter of the Book of Luke the story is told of Jesus´ parents, worried and seeking him for three days, finding him and complaining, to which Jesus said: ´´How is it that you sought me? Know you not that I must be about my father´s business?´´ I ask you not to put yourself in that frame of mind. Your earthly parents seek you and, at the tender age of 12, you dare to say to them: ´´I must be about my father´s business.´´ This statement has reference to the 40th Psalm and the fourth chapter of John. In the 40th Psalm you are told: ´´In the role of the book it is written about me.´´ Every man is destined to discover that scripture is his autobiography. It´s not written about individual beings like Jesus Christ, Moses, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and so on who lived unnumbered years ago, but about the individual you! 1. Language: English.

Are you a spiritual person? A mature Christian? The apostles do not think that you are unless you have mastered the basic principles of the oracles of God. The writer of the book of Hebrews wanted to present some exciting thoughts about Jesus. He wanted to start exploring some heady insights about the work of Messiah, but he felt frustrated because people seemed unprepared for these deeper, spiritual lessons. He wanted to go deep, but people were still shallow. They did not have the basics down. He wrote, ´´It is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food´´ (Hebrews 5:11-12). In Elementary Principles, D. Thomas Lancaster takes listeners back to first-century Messianic Judaism to explore what he calls ´´an apostolic catechism´´, the foundational basics of discipleship to Jesus of Nazareth. Think you know it all already? Get ready to rethink your religion. This book of ´´basics´´ challenges common Christian assumptions while laying out clear, biblical definitions for all followers of Jesus. For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food. (Hebrews 5:11-12) 1.
