Excellent narration. Story became long and tedious in parts. Too much internal thought for me. Still, a good tale. Had an "aha" moment at the end when I saw the scripture connection.
I loved the comparison to Job, the long suffering faithful man. The idea that even the most unrighteous of men can receive redemption is a wonderful moral to the story.
I can't wait to read the next one!
Although it gets a little depressing throughout the book, the final resolution is incredible. I pray that God will use this book to touch people's lives.
I love how Ted Dekker brings to life the relationship of a non believer's walk through the pain and confusion of this world to a realization of who God is Who Christ is and how his life has purpose in a world that feels full of emptiness and pain. As he finds hope and healing in love.
Tim Gregory is an excellent reader. He brings life with individuality to each character .
use of more colloquial phrases and a more updated story line. seemed like it was set in the mid-80's rather than early 21st century
narrator did a good job with the material he had available
disappointment. I understand this is written by a Christian author, but was disappointed by the lack of current (ie 21st century) words and phrases. Some of the phrases used were so annoying, I wanted to stop listening. I will get through to the end as I have to know what happens, but am not interested at all in reading books 2 and 3. Too me, there wasn't enough of a Christian message to this story line - I'm about 2 hours from the end.
Riches are meaningless.
The thoughts that went through Kent's mind when he had to hot-wire a truck and pick up a corpse.
Kent! I enjoyed the transparencies about his thoughts regarding people, co-workers and family. Great book!
I couldn't put this book down; I started it immediately after I woke each morning! The humanity and biblical similarities were thought provoking!
I highly recommend this book! This needs to be a movie!!!!!
Changed my thoughts on this book since I've realized it's part one of a trilogy; story = 4 stars.Wish Audible made this clear on their site.
Maybe, but I'm not usually driven to listen to a past read. I am going to complete the trilogy.
No it wasn't, but I did make it a priority.
I loved the journey of Kent Anthony's growth but it was his Mother-In-law's faith that moved me the most.
Say something about yourself!
I would recommend this to anyone. It doesn't have sex scenes or bad language. It was a great story. I intend to read the next 2 in this series. I enjoyed it.
I do all sorts of things while I listen. I kept my ear tuned to this one.
Helen was my favorite character. She was steadfast in her faith from beginning to end. Tim Gregory made the story interesting. He made Helen interesting through out.
A hook early in the book to give the readers/listener a reason to keep going.
Narrator's acting was good and voices were easy to listen to.
Anger. I kept waiting for something interesting to happen but I couldn't even get to Part 2.
Plodded through 16 chapters, but couldn't find anything that made me car about any of the characters.
Narrator did a fine job, he just didn't have a very good story to read.
Just not my cup of tea.
