    Broken into 31 segments, this audiobook defines the most powerful blessings in Scripture and encourages readers to declare one each day for a month. The declarations will affirm God's blessings in the area of health, family legacy, decisions, finances, thoughts, outlook, and overcoming obstacles.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend it as life and circumstances can be overwhelming. The author is the rare cheerleader that comes along to urge you forward without being smarmy or promising unreachable things.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There are a lot of little stories throughout to illustrate his daily life declarations. I often forget what the declarations are but the stories have stuck with me.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There was a young man trying to get into a prestigious college, which he would only be able to afford with at least a partial scholarship. He didn't get it and enrolled at a local junior college. Four weeks before school started, he was called by the scholarship office to say an opening had become available for a four year total scholarship. Don't let the first no discourage you.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My atypical reaction to this audiobook versus others has been repeatedly playing it. I find myself listening to it while walking, driving to work or playing video games. It's a boost akin to an extra shot of espresso.

    Whether we view it in theological, philosophical, or psychological terms, evil remains both a deeply intriguing question and a crucially relevant global issue. Now, Professor Mathewes offers you a richly provocative and revealing encounter with the question of human evil - a dynamic inquiry into Western civilization's greatest thinking and insight on this critical subject.

    Niki Picone says: "Hard to start but easy to finish and enjoy again."
    "Slightly Misleading but Still Good"

    Story
    What did you love best about Why Evil Exists?

    It is thoroughly researched with many approaches to the understanding of evil throughout the ages.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Why Evil Exists?

    The approach to Eichmann's trial stands out. Sometimes the most horrific of evil is enacted as if it's another boring day at the office.


    Which character – as performed by Professor Charles Mathewes – was your favorite?

    He didn't perform characters but his speaking voice keeps you involved. Imagine what a great teacher who actually enjoys his job sounds like.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Not possible but the title needs clarification. It isn't 'Why Evil Exists' but is more 'A History of Evil.'


    Any additional comments?

    If you were looking for a deep analysis of evil as a force in this world, you may be disappointed. That said, this is as close as it will get through the Great Courses series. I enjoyed each lecture and feel I got my full credit's worth with this title.
