    God finds ways to reach out to us every day, offering a lifetime partnership filled with guidance on everything from major life issues to small, ordinary problems. The question is, are you listening?

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the book to read but not the audio to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    Unfortunately Joyce Meyer's narration of her own book is monotone, boring and puts me to sleep. In contrast, hearing her speak live at conferences or listening to CD's recorded live from her conferences are absolutely fantastic. She's an engaging, funny, lively, dynamic speaker who obviously loves God and has a gift in speaking all things related to Christian living (just not reading them). Practical and full of common sense. I enjoyed reading the book but would never bother listening to her reading it to me again.

    Engrained in our culture is the belief that unbending discipline is the only sure way to success. You must go to the gym five times a week, never order the dessert, and don't even think about buying that dress you keep staring at in the store window. Breaking from such a regimented lifestyle is a sign of weakness, right? Wrong!-and Joyce wants to tell us why...

    What was most disappointing about Joyce Meyer’s story?

    Fantastic speaker at conferences but I find her books boring to read and listen to, and don't keep my attention.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointed in the audio. I found the narrator's voice irritating and would never buy an audio with this narrator again no matter how good the content.


    Any additional comments?

    Joyce Meyer is a fantastic, engaging, lively speaker at her conferences. Don't write her off because her books may be dull, boring or read in an irritating manner. I would recommend listening to her speaking recorded live at a conference rather than books.

    We have questions. Real, important, and challenging questions. Questions about sex, finances, and forgiveness. Unsettling questions regarding illness, suicide, and eternity. Do angels really walk among us? How should I discipline my kids? Any advice for my struggling marriage? Why do I worry so much? How do I know what God’s will for me really is? In Max on Life, one of the most trusted pastors and authors of our time takes on life’s most important questions.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this audio to a friend.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Questions from everyday people (many questions of which I have also wondered about) were addressed and Biblical answers and solutions given.


    What about Wayne Shepherd’s performance did you like?

    Narrator has a mellow voice, easy to listen to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to this audio in 20 minute blocks (the length of time it takes me to drive to work) and then was able to ponder the questions asked and Max's response.


    Any additional comments?

    Really enjoyed it and will listen again later.

    God does what it takes to get our attention.It’s the message of the Bible. It’s the message of this book: the relentless pursuit of God. God on the hunt. God in the search. Peeking under the bed for hiding kids, stirring the bushes for lost sheep. Searching, wrestling, pulling us back to him, over and over again. Kind, then stern. Tender and tough. Faithfully firm. Patiently urgent. Eagerly tolerant. Softly shouting.

    Would you listen to A Gentle Thunder again? Why?

    I intend to keep this audio so I can listen to it again and again.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I couldn't listen to the whole book in one sitting...I needed to pause every now and then to ponder and digest what Max had been discussing. Thought provoking, Scripture based and sound Biblical teaching.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator's voice I found soothing and easy to listen to. Any future books with this narrator (who is not the author, Max) I wouldn't hesitate to buy and listen to.
