Keller is masterful at conveying the heart of Christianity. Entrenched in ministry in NYC, he's certainly the seeker's saint. He does an EXCEPTIONAL job of defending his faith in a way which would not (in my opinion) make others defensive about theirs. While not dumping anything down, he delivers a message which is concise, meaningful, effective and ENGAGING.
A GREAT listen filled with anecdotal stories, high theology and historical facts. Would recommend it to both battle-hardened apologists who have forgotten WHY they do what they do, and to seekers who have no basis for Truth. Not the biggest or most comprehensive evangelistic works out there, but certainly the one with the biggest heart!
This was my first Wells book... and I was a little disappointed. The narrator is excellent, but I found the story to be weaker than expected. The main character is flat and underdeveloped, and I felt very un-invested throughout. If you're looking for rich storytelling, vivid imagery and multi-dimensional characters from a classic novel, Verne's "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" or "Around the World in 80 Days" are (in my opinion) much more excellent books.
If you are a Wells fan, PLEASE don’t let me discourage you from reading this book! "The Time Machine" is an entertaining story and offers great commentary on what might be the result of man's continued pursuit of comfort and ease. However, if you want to experience this story without taking the time to read it, just rent the Guy Pearce movie. It’s not necessarily better, but at least it’s shorter.
