My wife was glued to this book, amazed by the facts. It is not a book one listens to for fun or entertainment. It is not a novel it reads more like a journal, a first hand account. It is story after story of a terrifying disease and how it not only destroys the body but the soul as well. One must have a deep interest in the plague or any plague to fully appreciate and understand the affect such a fearful ordeal will have on humanity. If this is the reason one listens to this book, then it is truly and eye-opening account and worth every minute.
Thank you Audible for including it in your book list!
Thank you Mr Snyder. (sentence stands alone)
The book bolts out of the starting gate in the usual A.W. Tozer fashion and never lets you take a breath, an earthly breath that is. As far as a Godly breath goes, I feel like I have had mouth to mouth resuscitation from God Himself!
This book seems to be just about the prophet but is so much more than that it is about the Christian walk and how black and white the God is, wanting to have a personal relationship with US! This Audio Book had a special treat at the end-- recordings of A.W. Tozer preaching on the topics in the book. That was unexpected and inspiring.
I had a little trouble with Mr. Snyder doing the narration. It took me about a chapter to figure out what that was. It was my expectations from audio books. I expect that they will be read to me. Mr. Snyder did not read this book to me, he spoke is as a reverend would preach a sermon. It did not take anything away from the book at all, in fact it seemed that he actually has as much love for this message as Tozer did himself.
There is so much heart healing in this book. What else can be said?
Listen to it as a whole rather than in parts.
I would recommend this to a friend only if they had the time to listen carefully.
Susan Denaker does an amazing job reading this book. Her flow kept me from re-reading many sections.
If I were to write a tag line for this book it would be-- "An amazing journey of knowing less but gaining MORE." Or to coin an overused phrase-- "Let go and let God."
Are you ready to go deeper with God? This book is so worth the investment. Not a casual read during drive-time. I don't think I could have gotten the message if I had just listened-- I read along as I listened. Kudos to Susan Denaker for the narrative she did. I can't thank her enough! Wonderful, wonderful book.
