Paul Michael did a great job narrating it. His character voices were just right; not too extreme, but enough of a change to add to the story.
As a believer, I found the stories of God's love and power changing lives inspiring. My guess would be that even if you don't follow Jesus, you would be touched by the compassion of the main characters and the power of love to change lives.
There were three or four spots I found myself tearing up because of the scene.
I can't recommend this book enough. It was so inspiring and challenging. And a very easy listen, thanks to the writing and narration.
This book got a lot of media attention because of the authors relationship to Justin Bieber. I'm glad it did because Judah Smith captures brilliantly the offensiveness of God's grace given through Jesus. It's so good it's upsetting.
Taking a closer look at the interactions that Jesus had with people and the things that the he said, this book invites readers and listeners into a fuller experience of the life God has for us.
Judah Smith is one of the most phenomenal speakers in the world. This book is a great companion to his live teachings. As an audiobook it is a bit redundant, when his podcast is the first expression of him saying brilliantly the real heart and content of the book, which he then wrote...and now reads.
I heard a speaker say "if you are pointing your finger at someone else, you need to realize that three fingers are pointed back at yourself." That might be the best way to describe this book. It constantly turns it back on the reader to seriously examine their own problems and areas of self deception.
This book was recommended to me from a speaker and author whose focus is leadership.
I think it is a great listen for all developing leaders (which is hopefully every leader).
