Mother Angelica - The Remarkable Story of a Nun (Audio Book)
In 1981, the year after Ted Turner founded CNN, a simple nun using her entrepreneurial instincts and $200 for seed money, launched what would become the world's largest religious media empire in the garage of a Birmingham, Alabama monastery. Today, EWTN offers twenty-four hours of English and Spanish television programming reaching 105 million viewers around the globe. How did a crippled nun achieve so much and reach so many? Born Rita Rizzo in Canton, Ohio, in 1923, Mother Angelica was abandoned by her father and raised in poverty by a mother who suffered suicidal depressions. Awakened to the power of prayer, at age 21 she vowed to dedicate her life to God and become a cloistered nun. She expected to spend her life hidden from the world. But Rita's faith compelled her to unlikely endeavors, accomplishing what the highest echelon of the Catholic Church could not. Raymond Arroyo was given unprecedented access to Mother Angelica's letters, diaries, medical records, family, friends and foes, as well as one-on-one interviews over a three-year period. This engrossing biography traces Mother Angelica's tortured rise to success and exposes for the first time the fierce opposition she faced, inside and outside of her church. It is an inspiring story of survival and proof that one woman's faith can move more than mountains. Only weeks after completing the final interview for this biography, Mother Angelica suffered a stroke that stole her speech. Within are her reflections, her powerful life lessons and thoughts on her remarkable life. Includes 8 pages of pictures! "A rattling good story of fear, faith, courage, and bulldog tenacity, beautifully told. The drama of Mother Angelica's life is a powerful reminder that the extraordinary lies just beyond the ordinary - if we have eyes to see and ears to hear." - George Weigel, author of Witness to Hope: the Biography of Pope John Paul II See also: Mother Angelica - The Remarkable Story of a Nun, Her Nerve, and a Network of Miracels (Book) 10 CD Audio Book read by Raymond Arroyo Approx. running time: 13 hours

Brassy and beloved medium Theresa Caputo, star of the hit television show "Long Island Medium," opens the door to her world and invites you to experience her exceptional gift of com-municating with those who've crossed over to the Other Side. The always funny, frank, and down-to-earth medium-whether she's talking to her fam-ily, the local butcher, or the souls of those who've passed on-began communicating with Spirit at the age of four, but didn't fully accept her gift until she was thirty-three years old. She had a good life as a busy wife and working mom, but also suffered from chronic anxiety that, as it turned out, came from ignoring her abilities. Once Theresa began channeling, she realized that she felt much better after delivering a message from Spirit and releasing that energy. Since then she' s used her extraordinary gift to help people heal from the loss of their loved ones. Theresa feels that it's her purpose to make us all aware that there is more to life than what we see here in the physical world. She wants you to know that your deceased loved ones are safe and at peace, and that they're now with you in a different way-watching over you, loving you, and assisting you from the Other Side. She also wants you to real-ize that the unexplainable things you sense and feel from these souls are real, and that it's healthy and essential to acknowledge them. "There's More to Life Than This" lends insight on how Theresa's mediumship works, what happens to your soul when you die, what Spirit says Heaven is like, what the deceased want you to know, the importance of living a positive life, and the many roles that your family, friends, angels, guides, souls of faith, and God play here and in the afterlife. It also explores how to safely connect with Spirit, so that you can recognize when your loved ones are reaching out. Through Theresa's personal story, compel-ling anecdotes, and fascinating client readings, she teaches us about how she communicates with Spirit

Revere life, and give yours away for the sake of serving others. As a young man, Albert Schweitzer seemed destined for greatness. His immense talent and fortitude propelled him to a place as one of Europe's most renowned philosophers, theologians, and musicians in the early twentieth century. Yet Schweitzer shocked his contemporaries by forsaking worldly success and embarking on an epic journey into the wilds of French Equatorial Africa, vowing to serve as a lifelong physician to "the least of these" in a mysterious land rife with famine, sickness, and superstition. Enduring hardship, conflict, and personal struggles, he and his beloved wife, Helene, became German prisoners of war during WWI - and Helene later battled persistent illnesses. Ken Gire's novelesque narrative sheds new light on Schweitzer's faith-in-action ethic and his commitment to honor God by celebrating the sacredness of all life. The legacy of this 1952 Nobel Prize honoree endures in the thriving African hospital community that began in a humble chicken coop, in the millions who have drawn inspiration from his example, and in the challenge that emanates from his life story into our day. Albert Schweitzer seemed destined for greatness - and he was. He made his life his greatest sermon to a world in desperate need of hope and healing.

$14.70

Jill Price has the first diagnosed case of a memory condition called "hyperthymestic syndrome" - the continuous, automatic, autobiographical recall of every day of her life since she was fourteen. Give her any date from that year on, and she can almost instantly tell you what day of the week it was, what she did on that day, and any major world event or cultural happening that took place, as long as she heard about it that day. Her memories are like scenes from home movies, constantly playing in her head, backward and forward, through the years; not only does she make no effort to call her memories to mind, she cannot stop them. "The Woman Who Can't Forget" is the beautifully written and moving story of Jill's quest to come to terms with her extraordinary memory, living with a condition that no one understood, including her, until the scientific team who studied her finally charted the extraordinary terrain of her abilities. Her fascinating journey speaks volumes about the delicate dance of remembering and forgetting in all of our lives and the many mysteries about how our memories shape us. As we learn of Jill's struggles first to realize how unusual her memory is and then to contend, as she grows up, with the unique challenges of not being able to forget - remembering both the good times and the bad, the joyous and the devastating, in such vivid and insistent detail - the way her memory works is contrasted to a wealth of discoveries about the workings of normal human memory and normal human forgetting. Intriguing light is shed on the vital role of what's called "motivated forgetting"; as well as theories about childhood amnesia, the loss of memory for the first two to three years of our lives; the emotional content of memories; and the way in which autobiographical memories are normally crafted into an ever-evolving and empowering life story. Would we want to remember so much more of our lives if we could? Which memories do our minds privilege over others? D

Doris Herrmann was born deaf in 1933 in Basel, Switzerland, and from the age of three, she possessed a mystical attraction to kangaroos. She recalls seeing them at that age for the first time at the Basel Zoo, and spending every spare moment visiting them from then on. Eventually, her fascination grew into passionate study of their behavior. Her dedication caught the attention of the zookeepers who provided her greater access to these extraordinary animals. Despite her challenges with communication, Herrmann wrote a scientific paper about the kangaroo's pouch hygiene when raising a joey. Soon, experts from around the world came to visit this precocious deaf girl who knew about kangaroos. Herrmann appreciated the opportunities opening up to her, but her real dream was to travel to Australia to study kangaroos in the wild. For years she worked and yearned, until Dr. Karl H. Winkelstrater a renowned authority on kangaroos, suggested an independent study in Australia at a place called Pebbly Beach. In 1969, at the age of 35, Herrmann finally traveled to the native land of kangaroos. During the next four decades, she would make many more trips to observe and write about kangaroos. "My Life with Kangaroos" explores every facet of Herrmann's connection to these engaging marsupials. Her single-minded devotion not only made her a leading self-made scholar on kangaroos, it transformed her own personality and her relationships with others. As she forged bonds with kangaroos named Dora, Jacqueline, Manuela, and many others, she engendered great affection and respect in the people around her, truly a remarkable story of success.

The 14th Gemina Martia Victrix Legion was the most celebrated unit of the early Roman Empire-a force that had been wiped out under Julius Caesar, reformed, and almost wiped out again. After participating in the a.d. 43 invasion of Britain, the 14th Legion achieved its greatest glory when it put down the famous rebellion of the Britons under Boudicca. Numbering less than 10,000 men, the disciplined Roman killing machine defeated 230,000 rampaging rebels, slaughtering 80,000 with only 400 Roman losses-an accomplishment that led the emperor Nero to honor the legion with the title "Conqueror of Britain." In this gripping book, second in the author's definitive histories of the legions of ancient Rome, Stephen Dando-Collins brings the 14th Legion to life, offering military history aficionados a unique soldier's-eye view of their tactics, campaigns, and battles.

Locked away, but not silenced. Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh knew they were putting their lives on the line. Though Islamic laws in Iran forbade them from sharing their Christian beliefs, in three years they'd covertly put New Testaments into the hands of 20,000 of their countrymen. They'd started two secret house churches, including one for prostitutes - many of whom were women abandoned by their husbands with no other way to support themselves and their children. Maryam and Marziyeh had almost been caught so many times that it felt like divine intervention. But finally - perhaps inevitably - the two women were arrested in 2009 and held the notorious Evin Prison in Tehran. There, inmates are routinely tortured, and executions are swift and sudden. But in the face of chilling interrogation, intimidation, and a possible death sentence, something remarkable happened. Instead of succumbing to fear, they chose to take the radical - and dangerous - step of sharing their faith inside the very walls of the government stronghold that was meant to silence them. In "Captive in Iran," Maryam and Marziyeh recount how God used their 259 days in Evin Prison to bring about a miraculous reversal: shining light into one of the world's darkest places, giving hope to those who had lost everything, and showing love to those in despair.

A learned, respected, accomplished man leaves a life of worldly success to serve Christ among "the least of these." Albert Schweitzer was a Renaissance man who basked in the utmost respect of the world's intelligentsia. Schweitzer had doctorates in philosophy, theology, and medicine. He was a well-respected author, a concert organist, and a world authority on Bach. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1952. But he left a life of acclaim to pursue the God-given call to treat all life as sacred, especially in those places on the fringe-in Africa. In what is now Gabon, people saw him daily with his stethoscope on a distended belly and heard him nightly performing classical music on his piano. In a time when many people feel small and inconsequential, Schweitzer's life is a testimony to the power of one person's sacrifice, purpose, and commitment to treat all God's creations as sacred.

Washed in the Blood is an inspiring story of life, loss, hope, suffering and eventually transcendence. It is equal measures heartbreaking and inspiring. However, the secret weapon is the tongue-in-cheek humor. Humor has always been a means of coping with the pain in life. In fact, humor helps convey the central message which is that you can endure a personal tragedy and remain vitally absorbed in the business of living. Life tears open everyone. The key is to come back a little stronger in those torn places. Washed in the Blood is much more than a heartbreaking tale about life's problems. This is a story about the courage of the human spirit and triumph over remarkable circumstances.

$15.15
View Product


Based on Levenda's research into Mormonism, Freemasonry, and esoteric societies over the past thirty years, this book is intended for an audience that is curious about Mormonism in light of the fact that at the beginning of 2012 there were two Mormons running for the GOP presidential nomination against two Roman Catholics. There has been much confusion in the media over various Mormon phenomena, such as the "magic underwear," polygamy "Big Love" style, and much else. This book examines the beliefs and reveals the facts of Mormon ideas and practice, starting with its founder Joseph Smith Jr. who began his religious career with rituals of ceremonial magic and divination, and ended it with Freemasonry, the largest militia in the state of Illinois, a candidacy for US president, and assassination. Levenda also discussed the Mormons connection to Howard Hughes, Richard Nixon and Watergate as well as the role of Mormons in contemporary Presidential elections. This is the fascinating story of a purely American religion, its occult origins, and the rise of Mormons in American politics.

On Valentine's Day 1985, biologist Stacey O'Brien adopted Wesley, a baby barn owl with an injured wing who could not have survived in the wild. Over the next nineteen years, O'Brien studied Wesley's strange habits with both a tender heart and a scientist's eye-and provided a mice-only diet that required her to buy the rodents in bulk (28,000 over the owl's lifetime) . She watched him turn from a helpless fluff ball into an avid com-municator with whom she developed a language all their own. Eventually he became a gorgeous, gold-and-white macho adult with a heart-shaped face who preened in the mir-ror and objected to visits by any other males to "his" house. O'Brien also brings us inside Caltech's prestigious research community, a kind of scientific Hogwarts where resident owls sometimes flew freely from office to office and eccentric, brilliant scientists were extraordinarily committed to studying and helping animals; all of them were changed by the animals they loved. As O'Brien gets close to Wesley, she makes astonishing discoveries about owl behavior, intelligence, and communication, coining the term "The Way of the Owl" to describe his noble behavior. When O'Brien develops her own life-threatening ill-ness, the biologist who saved the life of a helpless baby bird is herself rescued from death by the insistent love and courage of this wild animal. Enhanced by wonderful photographs, "Wesley the Owl" is a thoroughly engaging, heart-warming, often funny story of a complex, emotional, non-human being capable of reason, play, and, most important, love and loyalty. Translated into eight languages and named an "Audubon Magazine" Editor's Choice, "Wesley the Owl" is sure to be cherished by animal lovers everywhere.
