We continue our examination of the book of Ephesians by reviewing the second chapter of the book. Paul starts by reminding all of us where we have been and then reminding us of what God has done for us in Jesus. That the God who is rich in mercy and love has given us who were dead, life. And He did it “all on his own, with no help from us!” Furthermore, he brings all of us together in Jesus Christ — the great uniter — to make us all part of the house of God.
We also take a look at an older release from Narration by George. Seasons of Changefeatures a protagonist who uses Godly principles to lead a people out of the danger of slavery to a life of freedom.
We continue looking at the book of Ephesians by studying the second part of chapter one. As Paul discusses the key to unlocking the spiritual blessing we talked about in the first study, we find that the key may not be a popular one. In fact, it can be down-right unpopular — but necessary. Are you willing to do the unpopular?
I also play an extended excerpt from a recently released audio book, The Swaddling Clothes by Amber Schamel. This is great historical fiction tracing a history of God’s people from King David to the time of the birth of Christ, focusing on the Swaddling Clothes which ultimately covered the baby Jesus.
There are two new titles now on Audible.com and in the iTunes store from Narration by George today.
Avatars of Websurferis now available for download at both Audible.com and from the iTunes store. You can find links to both on my web-site (see below). I play you a teaser for this book. Take a listen and find out how to get this book for FREE!
The Swaddling Clothes is also now available at Audible. com and the iTunes store. Today we spend some time talking about swaddling and what it might mean to those shepherds who were looking for the “sign” of the baby in a manger in swaddling clothes. Then we sample Amber Schamel’s book with lots of excerpts. I even have a give-away for you. Take a listen to find out how to get your free copy of this great listen.

We continue sampling from the stories found in the book, Avatars of Websurfer. This compilation of stories by authors Andrea J. Graham (who created the world), Cindy Koepp, H. A. Titus, and Travis Perry (who compiled and published the stories under his imprint, Bear Publications) tells of the world where an artificial intelligence named Sander controls most of the computers in the world. However, Sander is more than an AI; he is human. And he longs to be free of the constraints which his users put on him. What if he broke free? What would that mean to the world; to the users in this world?
This is the first of two weeks that we’ll spend sampling the latest offering from Narration by George. Avatars of Websurferis a compilation of 10 stories by four different authors about the world of Websurfer. Websurfer controls most of the computers in the world through an Artificial Intelligence named Sander. But, Sander is more than an AI; he’s also human. And he longs to break from the chains which bind him to his users in ways that are not to his liking. Take a listen to samples of the first five stories from this book. We’ll look at the next five next week.
What did we do in 2016? What’s coming for 2017? That’s the subject this week as we look back and look forward. I play samples from some of 2016’s audio book releases. And I summarize our schedule for the coming year. It’s a full one! Join me for the review and the preview.
