This would not be a bad series for a person who thinks they might like history and the subject of events that changed history, but if you are a fairly well-read history buff, you will already know most of the events and details provided.
Perhaps found less known events that made a difference or else, provided unknown details or connections in the ones provided.
About average for a lecturer. I don't expect class lecturers to be greatly dynamic. It is nice if they are, but as long as I can understand them and they provide good information, I don't care.
Yes, although I would warn anyone I recommended this to that there is a religious component. If they have a problem with that, I would add that it isn't an "in your face, become a Christian" kind of thing and that the writing quality is good enough that they really should try it. I am a Christian myself but I normally cannot stomach most Christian authors. They usually aren't stand-out writers and they usually make faith too simplistic. Ted Dekker is a good writer, up there with well known secular writers, at least, judging from this book.
Eden - she was and still is fascinating. I want to understand more of her background.
Ms Larson's narration was unusual but fit the book very well.
Water Walker seems to me the best title.
I listened to this because a friend's recommendation - she mistakenly told me that it was the first of the series, when it was actually the second. I plan to read or listen to the first one (Eyes Wide Open) next and I hope some things will become more clear - although I suspect this is a mysterious kind of book, anyway - a mixture of realism and faith (not that faith isn't real, too, imo, but I'm sure you understand what I mean).
It was little more than a series of facts. There was no attempt to really understand the man, the events in Israel, etc. Facts are fine but I was hoping for something more, like insight.
