Cyber Monday: Inklings and Theology Bundles on Christian Audio

Inklings Audiophiles and readers of classic Christian theology will love the Cyber Monday bundles at ChristianAudio.com. They have $15 three-pack of unabridged audiobooks, including:

  • The Lord of the Rings trilogy read by Rob Inglis
  • C.S. Lewis’ Space Trilogy read by Geoffrey Howard (= Ralph Cosham)–note that http://www.ChristianBook.com has the trilogy omnibus edition for $11.99 on sale
  • A three-pack Bible Bundle
  • A Devotional bundle with Bonhoeffer‘s Life Together read by Paul Michael, J.I. Packer’s Knowing God read by Simon Vance, and A.W. Tozer’s The Knowledge of the Holy, read by Scott Brick
  • Each month Christian Audio offers a free audiobook, and this month’s free book is Foxe’s Book of Martyrs, read by the rich voice of Nadia May
  • If you follow this link, there are a number of Christian classics for sale:
    • John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress, read by Nadia May
    • St. Augustine’ Confessions, read by Simon Vance
    • Andrew Murray’s Absolute Surrender, read by Simon Vance
    • Charles Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening, read by James Adams
    • John Owen’s Of the Mortification of Sin in Believers, read by Tom Parks
    • Jonathan Edwards’ The Religious Affections, read by Simon Vance

All male authors, except a husband-wife combo in one of the other bundles, but this is to be expected by the way Christian Audio curates their materials. Still, the list of readers is impressive. Nadia May I have praised, Scott Brick has done dozens of the most important fantasy work, Simon Vance does dozens of theology books and, with Geoffrey Howard, is a critical reader of C.S. Lewis’ work, and Rob Inglis gives a classic LOTR reading (which I have yet to listen through, but may next summer).

I assume the sale ends Monday night, though they have a 50% off “Cyber Week Sale,” so take a look. All prices are American and shipping is limited outside the U.S. and Canada.

About Brenton Dickieson

“A Pilgrim in Narnia” is a blog project in reading and talking about the work of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the worlds they touched. As a "Faith, Fantasy, and Fiction" blog, we cover topics like children’s literature, apologetics and philosophy, myths and mythology, fantasy, theology, cultural critique, art and writing. This blog includes my thoughts as I read through Lewis and Tolkien and reflect on my own life and culture. In this sense, I am a Pilgrim in Narnia--or Middle Earth, or Fairyland. I am often peeking inside of wardrobes, looking for magic bricks in urban alleys, or rooting through yard sale boxes for old rings. If something here captures your imagination, leave a comment, “like” a post, share with your friends, or sign up to receive Narnian Pilgrim posts in your email box. Brenton Dickieson is a father, husband, friend, university lecturer, and freelance writer from Prince Edward Island, Canada. You can follow him on Twitter, @BrentonDana.

    Exciting prospects! We’ve listened to Rob Inglis’s Hobbit repeatedly with pleasure – and also hope, someday, to catch up with his Lord of the Rings. Down the years, we’ve had good fortune finding Christian audios at Half-Price Books in the U.S. (including that Inglis Hobbit – and Madeleine reading A Wrinkle in Time and A Wind in the Door). We’ve also had good hap with borrowing great audiobooks from public libraries. And, of course, enjoying assorted free (volunteer-read) Christian classics (among many others) at LibriVox.org – and Legamus.eu! (Interesting things turn up on YouTube, too… we’ve also had the alarming experience of our ‘security’ warning us when trying to follow a link from LibriVox that what it led to was Very Dangerous – and then finding a ‘safe copy’ on YouTube!)

    • Oh, I’ve never had a warning on Librivox links…. Too bad. But there is some danger in us puddle jumping through the new availability of older books. I love this time and place for reading. Even if I want paper, for $15-$20 I can get most anything printed.
      The Inglis Hobbit is a lot of fun!

    A relative of mine, made to read Foxe’s Book of Martyrs one Sunday, threw it across the room in frustration. Can’t imagine why anyone would read it voluntarily.

    I’ll get my coat.

    The rest of the list sounds top notch.

    Also I like the idea of a website with downloadable classics read aloud

    • Yes, if it isn’t for you, skip it. There were chunks of it I quite liked. Actually, one of my favourite bits was a woman working as a missionary in China. I don’t normally love those stories. I worked as a missionary in Japan and was uncomfortable with some of that tradition. And, yet, I found it moving. And the stories of Tyndale and Wycliffe and some of the early martyrs, the Romans. But it did not connect with me like it does with others.
      Do you know librivox? It’s where I typically go for free classic audiobooks. Variable quality, but patience bears it out.
