In this recording of one of the most consequential speeches ever given, Max McLean introduces the events leading to the Diet of Worms; Martin Luther's prayer the night before he delivered his speech; Luther's stirring defense; Eck's rebuttal; and Luther's final heartfelt response. 1.

It's Christmas Eve at St Mary's. And all through the house. Nothing is stirring.... Except for Max, Peterson, and Markham, sneaking out at midnight for an assignment that is very definitely off the books. It was ten years ago tonight that senior historians Bashford and Grey went missing in 12th century Jerusalem. So how did they end up in AD 60 Roman Colchester? Max has a theory. Peterson has a plan. Markham has bacon sandwiches. Colchester has Boudicca and her bloodthirsty Iceni hordes. And then there's the giant pig...the enraged, giant pig.... Jodi Taylor is and always has been a history nut. Her disinclination to get out of bed for anything after 1485 can only be overcome by massive amounts of chocolate, and sometimes, if it's raining, not even then. She wanted to write a book about time travel that was a little different and, not having a clue how difficult this would make her book to classify, went ahead and slung in elements of history, adventure, comedy, romance, tragedy, and anything else she could think of. Her advice to booksellers is to buy huge numbers of her books and just put one on every shelf. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Zara Ramm.

His books have been translated into 38 languages, selling millions of copies worldwide. In Angels, Graham provides astonishing insight into God’s behind-the-scenes secret agents. Citing his own personal experiences and the documented accounts of others, Graham affirms his convictions that angels think, feel, and display emotions as they provide comfort and support in guiding us through life’s problems. According to Graham, “The hosts of heaven stand at attention as we make our way from earth to glory, and Satan’s BB guns are no match for God’s heavy artillery.” Angels brilliantly displays the practical approach and conversational style that have made Dr. Billy Graham one of the most popular Christian evangelists in history. His keen insights—combined with Jack Garrett’s clear, stirring narration—will leave no believer unmoved. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack Garrett.
