Speaking to a live audience, Christian author Ortberg is clearly committed to his topic. In this series of eight lectures Ortberg is reading from a script, and the page-turnings are loud. His inspiring motivational talks include film clips, which are not included. That creates gaps in the flow of the production. A perky female co-lecturer on CD 3 directs dramas to enhance Ortberg's points, but, as with the film clips, the listener cannot see them and misses out on the message. In the later lectures, Ortberg is hushed and increasingly dramatic. As with most long series, the material is slightly repetitive but contains some important concepts. A.G.H.
