I had the opportunity to hear the author, John Ortberg, teach from this book at the Willow Creek Association Global Leadership summit in August 2012. John was so excited about the lesson that he got the entire audience excited about learning more about the impact Jesus had on our society.
The day after John spoke at the conference, I purchased this audio book and began listening to it with excitement. Well...not only was the person reading not John Ortberg, the narrator was not at all excited about the subject. What's ironic is that John Ortberg said he wrote this book so that people would get excited about who Jesus is and the narrator is NOT excited. LOL
I really wish I had read the description before I purchased this audio book. I recommend downloading video or audio of the author teaching from this book or just reading it instead.
Jesus' impact on social justice in society
The narrator did not seem excited about the subject matter. One of the reasons I purchased this audio book was the author's enthusiasm for the subject. The standard for non-fiction audio books seems to be a very bland, monotone delivery and in this case it detracted from the book.
No. A documentary might work.
Re-narrate this book with John Ortberg.
