I went into this book based on a recommendation from a friend so I was unsure what to expect. I'm a Christian in every sense of the word and I wanted to find a way to better live my life. After listening to this book my eyes are as the title of my review suggests: Wide open. So many questions I've had were answered and by listening I realized that while I strive to be a good person, I do fall very far from hitting the perfect mark.
Rick does a great job of talking to you and not preaching to you. I think if you have someone telling you what you should do, how you should do it, and then back it all up with Scripture really goes a long way at helping people understand why something should be done. For me it was tithing. My parents did, I know lots of other people who do it, but I never really saw the reason to struggle even more financially by tithing. How wrong I have been.
He has a nice tone and very easy to listen to.
I think the big take away for me is knowing that even though I may not be perfect, I'm not really expected to be. I've learned that worship is very different from what I was taught worship was.
Love the series and would listen to them all again. I love the narration by Sandra Burr, but why in god's name did she give Ayla that accent!? At first I thought it might be to help get the point across at how different she might sound and the accent would fade as she got to know everyone, but so far no end in sight for the accent. Not taking stars, though. Too good to remove starts for something I don't like.
