    Reading the Gospels without knowing the personality of Jesus is like watching television with the sound turned off. The result is a dry, two dimensional person doing strange, undecipherable things.

    Performance
    Story

    I've read and listened to other books by John Eldredge. He always ends up forcing me to think outside the tiny and neat box that I have my faith in. To quote Mohammed Ali, Eldredge "floats like a butterfly but stings like a bee!" His language is simple and easy to follow but watch out for that "right hook" which is going to flatten your complacency and stagger your understanding of God. After reflecting about what Mr. Eldredge writes, I always end up loving God more.
    The performance can have an effect on your appreciation of a book. Mr Eldredge does not have the voice of famous narrators but his genuine affection for the subject of the book becomes infectious and this overcomes any "shortfall" in the performance by my reasoning.
