Rob's style is very conversational. I feel he is sitting right there next to me explaining all this to me, personally. He doesn't speak down to me, but he does talk about some very complex things in a way that I get it.
I love how filled with hope his message is. How he explains that God is bigger than anything we imagined. He focuses on what is essential, but doesn't shy away from the things that have been obstacles. Rob talks from his heart, but it is filled with knowledge and reason, too. What he says really makes sense. I get it. I understand it.
His conversational style. Understandable.
Yes, and I almost made it.
This is a book for everyone that is willing to be open to the possibility that God really is bigger, more loving, more forgiving than any of us every imagined.
I enjoy the audio version because it makes it easy to pray with the Psalms every day. I find that the music background does enhance my listening experience for meditation and doesn't interfere with hearing the text. I find I can listen to the Psalms while driving, while waiting at the doctor's office, just before going to bed for the night, and when I first wake up. Since they are on my Audible app on my iPhone, they are always with me.
I have many translations of the Bible, but I really am enjoying the freshness of the Common English Bible. Some have commented that this translation is a paraphrase, but that isn't true. The translation was done by 120 scholars from the original sources. Many of us who have grown up with the BIble are used to the antiquated language of older translations and are uncomfortable with changes. When I have encountered a verse that seemed to stray from the more familiar language, I checked it out against original sources and found the translation to be accurate in every case. So I have learned to trust this translation and am enjoying the freshness and the accessibility that the Common English Bible offers. It has enhanced my experience of scripture, meditation, and prayer.
