It is autumn of 1938 in London. The Nazis have invaded Austria and are seizing Jewish assets, rumors of the Dachau concentration camp are clouding the air and, despite the cancer ravaging his body, an exiled Dr. Sigmund Freud spends his days anxiously clutching a Cuban cigar between his jaw and a large dental prosthesis he calls ´´The Monster.” He is doing just this when his daughter interrupts his forbidden indulgence with a scolding and news of a foreboding visit from SS Officer Anton Sauerwald. Rather than dragging the doctor into an interrogation room or confiscating the few luxuries Freud was able to secretly take away from Vienna, Sauerwald brings something far more dangerous into the household: a book more deadly than any weapon. Peter Blauner’s The Final Testament reminds us of the power of the written word and weighs the importance of intellectual pursuit against the question of moral responsibility in a time of panic and decay. 1.

Today I had word that my brother Ya´aqôb is dead. When this news reaches Mariam, living in exile in the province of Gaul, memories of her girlhood in faraway Palestine are painfully awakened. For years she has blocked them from her mind, but as illness and old age overtake her, she begins to relive the time when she defied all propriety and convention and followed her charismatic brother Yeshûa and her betrothed Yehûd´a in their daring but perilous adventure. ´´We were young. We were going to change the world.´´ Mariam shared the excitement, the fear and the mystery of the mission, but cannot forget the horror of its ending. With powerful resonances for today, The Testament of Mariam takes us into the turbulent world of rebellious Galilee under Roman occupation, and the courageous lives that altered the course of history. 1.

A scholar of the New Testament Church and a forerunner of modern Church renewal, Frank Viola casts his gaze back at the birth pangs of first-century Christianity in The Untold Story of the New Testament Church. Using a ´´you-are-there´´ approach, this epic volume gives listeners a first-hand account of how the witness of Christ´s testimony impacted the world. In the era right after the Day of Pentecost, the power of the Holy Spirit prompted a massive harvest of souls, yet a great persecution surged against those preaching Good News to the lost. Now, get up-close with apostles Paul, Peter and John and learn of their personal struggles to fight for the faith amidst a backdrop of in-house strife and foreign tyranny. 1. Language: English.

David is old and bed-ridden, and his son Adonijah proclaims himself king with the help of David´s commander Joab and the priest, Abiathar. Hearing this news, David instructs the prophet Nathan to anoint David´s son, Solomon, as king. The people rally behind Solomon in a grand procession to the royal throne. Before dying, David charges Solomon to remain faithful to God and his laws. Solomon solidifies his claim to the throne by killing Joab, Adonijah, and the remaining dissenters from David´s reign. He also makes an alliance with Egypt by marrying the pharaoh´s daughter. Christopher Glyn became a Christian at the age of 21, giving up a promising theatrical career in the UK to engage in full-time missionary work. In the 35 years since then, he has been very active in the field of Christian radio, primarily on the Asia and African continents. ´´For years it has been my dream to record an audio version of the Holy Bible, combining my training as an actor with my love for God´s Word. I am happy now to have the opportunity to do so. I started the very long process of recording the Bible three years ago and by the summer of 2011, the entire Bible was finished. I pray with my whole heart that these readings will be a blessing and an inspiration to many. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christopher Glyn.
