Hooked On Christian Books: Stuck in Traffic, Stuck on God

By Kelly Wise Valdes

Many of us spend a few hours each day in our vehicles. Whether you are commuting to work, sitting in car line at school, or chauffeuring the children to their events, we find ourselves having several hours of “windshield” time. According to a recent AAA statistic, the average American spends 293 hours driving each year. With that much time behind the wheel, what a great opportunity to listen to an inspirational audiobook from one of the various well-known Christian authors. Many of the popular Christian books can be found in audiobook versions. Reading inspirational quotes and passages are great, but it doesn’t beat listening to a person that motivates you to do great things while you’re learning at the same time.
