Foster writes in a way that draws you into expectation of a deeper relationship to God. And that expectation does not disappoint! Awesome book.
Learning the simplicity of methods of meditation and tips on how to overcome hindrances to those quiet times.
Soothing voice that draws you in. Like listening to a wise and deeply spiritual friend.
Method of meditation on the Lord that I have now used and has deepened my relationship to God.
It is a tedious read but very informative.
I have a new found respect for King James & the translators.
I must admit I have not finished the book yet but I do enjoy listening to it. It is a great study of world history at the time.
I would not say better because there is nothing like reading for yourself something about how your mind and eyes work together changes the imagery of what your are reading. But I do love Max McClean's dramatic reading skills and the fact that he is English or Scottish makes it even more realistic he accent is excellent.
Although I have read this book many times I never get tired of reading it I get something new out of it as I continue my Christian Journey it is truly a book that keeps on giving.
The King James Bible because it is written in the same type of english Jacobian or old english style and both books always have a fresh new thought to consider they never get old they are both truly ageless because human nature never changes for the better it only gets worse. Technology changes we learn more things about more things we are still a depraved and wicked race of people in need of a Savior.
I like the inflection of his voice and the dramatic quality of how he characterizes each player in the books he reads. It is almost like a movie in your mind he creates the characters so well you can almost see the action as he reads. I listen to him every morning reading me the KJV Listener's Bible and I have gone through the Bible with Max 2 times now starting on my 3rd time. Every month I go through the Psalms and Proverbs with Max he is the best narrator for old english around in my humble opinion.
Yes when Christian was in the slough of despond. I have been there myself many times. It helps me to read Pilgrim's Progress it encourages me on my own journey.
People rave about Lord of the Rings and other allegories but for me John Bunyan was the Master of the Allegories. Because he based all his stories on his own life and Biblical truths in the Bible. Which C.S. Lewis tries to do but maybe it's because I am old school and was raised in a King James type church that I prefer John Bunyan over C.S. Lewis.
Phillip Keller a "yes" but Maurice England a big "NO" from me!
David Cochran Heath would have been a been narator. Maurice England has a gravelly voice and I couldn't get past the first chapter
