In this remarkable audiobook, Anna Quindlen, one of America´s favorite novelists and a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, once again gives us wisdom, opinions, insights, and reflections about current events and modern life. ´´Always insightful, rooted in everyday experience and common sense...Quindlen is so good that even when you disagree with what she says, you still love the way she says it,´´ said People magazine about her New York Times best seller Thinking Out Loud, and the same can be said about Loud and Clear. With her trademark insight and her special ability to convey the impact public events have on ordinary lives, Quindlen here combines commentary on American society and the world at large with reflections on being a woman, a writer, and a mother. In these pieces, first written for Newsweek and The New York Times, Loud and Clear takes on topics ranging from social change to raising children, from the political and emotional aftermath of September 11 to personal values, from the impact on individuals of global events to the growth that can be gained by spending summer days staring into the middle distance. Grounding the public in the private, connecting people to each other and to the greater world, Quindlen encourages us to develop authentic lives, even as she serves as a catalyst for political and social change. ´´Anna Quindlen´s beat is life, and she´s one hell of a terrific reporter,´´ said Susan Isaacs, and Quindlen´s unique qualities of understanding and discernment can be found in every part of this provocative and inspiring book.

According to Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, faithful action is always inspired and sustained by common convictions - the basic truths that have sustained God´s people throughout every generation. The Awakening of Hope re-presents Christian faith by beginning with stories of faithful witness and asking, ´´Why?´´ Why do Christians eat together? Why do we fast? Why would we rather die than kill? These are the questions that help us see why creation and the fall, covenant and community, ethics and evangelism matter. This audiobook is a contemporary catechism, celebrating lives and stories that wouldn´t make sense if the gospel were not true.
