I counted it a joy to be listening to this series of lectures. It is a unique blend of humor, scholarship, and spiritual quest. I applaud this audiobook for presenting the actual recordings, and not a narrated transcript. Price these sold separately at the Socrates in the City website, and you'll discover what a fabulous bargain this collection actually is.

This is a compilation of lectures that have taken place in NYC over 10 years, kind of the 'best of'. Socrates in the City was started to give New Yorkers an opportunity to reflect on the big questions that they may not get around to in their busy lives. To me, it's more about seeing the intellectual underpinnings to a life of faith which I have not always realized were there. After listening to a series like this, one learns that exactly the opposite is true and I was the one misinformed. This book for sure is best heard in audio, as it is the actual speakers, not a narrator, so it is ideal for an audiobook. I've read books by Eric Metaxas and found them a tad long, but he's incredibly funny introducing each speaker. There is a forward by him as well. One of the few audiobooks I may easily keep around.
