Having only read portions of this work in College I was impressed the power of the narrative in this version. I was running while listening and found parts strangely inspirational. However, sexual content came as a total surprize. While the influence of this work may be limited in our literature it certainly reveals the universal themes that cause humanking to create art. All this in a short 3 hour program, time well spent. The bonus lecture is very helpful. After listening I felt prepared to lecture on the epic myslef.
Having taken several courses on Church History, this title was of great interest to me. I found it to be a fair treatment of all the parties involved in the Reformation. This book helped me to better understand the political, social and economic issues at stake in the Reformation, while not neglecting the central theological & ethical concerns of the reformers.
This title is best suited for those interested in Church History (both Catholic & Protestant). If one is not so inclined then even this brief treatment will prove overwhelming.
The narration is excellent and easy to follow despite some weighty historical details. The main limitation is related only to the audio format. It would have helped me to review the important dates and names at the end of each chapter. But this is no flaw of the production only the limitations of the media. Reviewed by Tony Kummer.
This reading is clear and easy to follow, provided you can read elementary Greek. For the student it is very helpful to read along in a printed Greek New Testament as they listen. This helps bridge from learning a language to actually reading a language. I regret that this version does not allow one to skip to the next track (chapter) of the reading. However, it remains an invaluable tool.
I bought this program on cassette four yeasrs ago for over $100. After continual use they are starting to wear out. This audio Bible is priceless. In only 15 min a day you can listen to the whole Bible in one year. Max Mclean brings the word with conviction and clarity. My mind rarely drifts while this program is on. I am excited to get this one for my MP3 player.
A clear presentation of the modern puritan appoach to the devotional life. I kept wishing I had read this book ten years ago. I was pleased that the reader was easy to follow and brought out the tone of Packers arguements. This one is worth repeated listening.
Never having spent much time on this sermon, this audible version was an eye opener. Listen several times and let it all sink in.
