An option to fast forward through all the biblical references, prayers and refrences to Jesus.
Absolutely- I'm not quite sure what to call the genre. How about force-fed religion with a sprinkle of a story.
The religious references, bible readings, prayers and references to Jesus by characters were so overdone that I could not tolerate listening to the entire book. This is only the second book I did not listen to completely in all my years wit Audible. I will remember to avoid this author.
I found myself skipping whole chapters when the Christian Conversion dialogs began
He is as good as I have heard
Depends on how much of the preaching was in it
A Sunday school teacher, or the Bible Belt.
No, No, never, too much time lost
All of them
Too much bible and not enough action. They talk about the bible for ten minutes to justify their action.
Without a doubt, this is the worst thing I ever bought from Audible. OK, the story was fairly good. It's about a team of agents trying to keep Iran from nuking the Middle East. What I hated about Damascus Countdown was first the preaching. Mr Rosenberg is not subtle is his desire to convert the reader to reborn status. Almost all the characters in the book take up the religious ranting. This type of proselytizing has no place in what Audible represented as enjoyable fiction to break the he monotony of a hard workout.
Secondly, I hated narrator. I never heard such a terrible accent. He used the same foul sounding voice an all the Middle East characters. What it sounded like was a very bad actor trying to sound like Gunga Din. Not just bad, More than enough to make you want to demand a refund from your friendly MP3 sellers.
Warning, if you're looking for entertainment and not a stroll through the gospel of some meeting-style preacher with an agenda, don't consider this awful book.
I am amazed at Joel Rosenbergs insight into the End Times and current affairs.
It amazes me how he can bring to light what is going on in the world and form into a story that you become enthralled in.
I looked forward to each time I was able to sit and listen to it. I often dreamed about it, it was so real to me.
Yes. The entire series was very entertaining considering all that's going on in this part of the World.
Maybe Daniel Silva spy novels, but just because they are Middle East based because Daniel Silva and his character Gabriel Allon really aren't similar. They have an entirely different premise, but it has the intrigue of that part of the World.
He did very well with the character's voices.
If you want to be entertained I think this will be a good choice.
This is must-read fiction that I hope never becomes reality!
A gripping tale of what happens to individuals who are caught in the midst of cataclysmic events, and the difference that faith in the true God can make.
He made it live with his accents and expression.
I practically did!
For anyone interested in end time stories especially from the Biblical view this novel is highly informative and very interesting. Once I opened the book I could scarcely put it down.
It kept me on the edge of my seat unable to walk away from it . Chapter after chapter held my attention from beginning to end. I devoured it as I have done with all of Joel Rosenbergs books.
His portrayal of the various characters was impeccable. He made the characters come alive rather than just reading Joel's words.
Probably not, his books are exciting, but seem to be written for Christians only. Does he honestly think any of us are going to become born again Christians with his sad/shameful attempt to convert us.
Remove all references to Christ, Christians and all attempts to add his religious commercials.
Yes, characterization is good.
Would have been four stars without the religious commercials.
fabulous book. must read first two before. story picks right up and you are on the edge of your seat until the end.
