    Daily readings drawn from every century and every tradition of the Christian faith. Christianity through the ages... Ignatius, C.S. Lewis, John Calvin, Augustine, Catherine of Siena, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Thomas Aquinas, Martin Luther, Polycarp, John Wesley, Karl Barth, and Billy Sunday. These names, and so many others, fill the pages of church history. Yet they remain strangers to most of us. How Great Is Our God will introduce you to Christianity’s most influential thinkers from every century and every tradition—modernized for today’s reader.

    Alan Rither says: "Tedious"
    "Sounds like Casey Kasem reads the Bible"

    Any additional comments?

    I think it may be a great book. I couldn't get past the flat hollow Hollywood radio announcer voice of the reader.I am expecting a reading of the most deep and powerful personal spiritual moments known to the West; I'm expecting subtle or direct revelations of men's understanding of, and relationship to, God.What could be more sacred and delicate and raw? I would expect the reader to embody that (at least a little) in his reading, but I detected no sensitivity to the subject, just a direct reading that is not even clear structurally or linguistically.Listen to the sample before you buy. Maybe it's just me. I have no beef with the subject, Just wish I wouldn't have bought it.
