I occasionally have done some book reviews for the message boards over on theooze.com. Basically, I get a free book, they get a review from me. I don't know if I will do anymore though because the past few books I felt were more like critiques, and I have found I don't much care for critiquing someone's writing.
However, with this last run I did get something I felt I could "promote". The Ooze sponsored a conference a few years back and have made the audio and video available. There are a total of 20 talks in all under Soularize in a Box 2. What I like about the way they have packaged it is that you get a DVD with all of the MP3s and then a dvd full of the same talks in a portable media player format (youtube quality). Usually when I get the CDs or DVDs from a conference, I have to rip everything so I can take it with me. Tedious. These fine folks have already done all that work.
Here are the seminars:
N.T. Wright - The Kingdom of God, Paul's Engagement of the Hellenistic World, Salvation
Rita Brock - Paradise: A Historical Perspective, Saving Paradise, The Story of God's Garden
Brennen Manning - Abba Father, We are Called to the Healing Ministry
Richard Rohr - Christian Transformation, Non-Dualistic Thinking, The Practice of Meditation (2 Parts)
Frank Viola - Narrative Ecclesiology
Michael Dowd - Thank God for Evolution
Jim Palmer - Divine Nobodies
Mark Scandrette - Living in the Ways of the Kingdom
Garth Higgins - Spirituality in Film
Spencer Burke - Retail Christianity or Wholesale Love?
Plus two round table discussions.
I guess they usually sell it for 40, but I was sent a coupon code to offer "vb50" which will take it down to $20.
For me, the talks by Richard Rohr alone make it worth it. Plus I love N.T. Wright, I discovered I liked a lot of what Frank Viola has to say, the talk on evolution was eye opening, and I enjoyed the discussion of spirituality and film. I am still working through the rest of it.
The coupon is supposedly good until the end of the year, so if you are into any of these speakers, I think it is a pretty good deal. You can purchase it at : http://soularize.net/
