    "Must Have Book For End Time Prophecy And Events!"

    This is the best book on end time prophecy and events that I have ever read or listened to! It says it like it is! It is definitely a book that clearly exposes pretention and falsehood in the spiritual realm. Thus it is no wonder that those that are involved in its identified deceptions seek to discredit it or those who present it.

    Thought overall the narrator does a very good job, it is evident that he was not raised with English as his mother tongue which has been to his disadvantage. At the same time I find that he is able to deliver that which was written sufficiently enough. As a scholar who has traveled and done investigative research work in 5 continents I feel sorry for those whose minds are so narrow and inflexible that they cannot tolerate anything that does not match their level of listening skills. At present I have never found any readings that have been without listening flaws nor is it possible. Pronunciation of words differs from north to south and east to west as all well versed and traveled listeners should know.

    Those who do not have good enough listening skills to finish listening to the end of the book have missed the most impressive part. Intolerance for the way in which one is presenting information is often a sign of intolerance for that which is being presented.

    In conclusion, if you are a lover of Truth and desire to know history and what is coming in the near future this is an excellent and illuminating book even with the occasional mispronunciations.

    "Bad narrator good book"

    I hope the publishers of this book consider rerecording it with another narrator.

    As for the book itself, it was very interesting. It is a history book mixed with inspirational and speculative commentary. It gives an accurate accounting of church history starting around the destruction of Jerusalem. It covers Christianity during the decline of the Roman Empire, the dark ages, the reformation, the protestant movements and the pilgrimage to America for religious freedom. It continues with a general account of modern times and finishes with what the climactic conclusion of the conflict between good and evil may be like.

    This book, I believe, was originally published some time before 1920, so it isn't written in the most modern of language. Yet as a student of history and avid follower of modern events it is kind of eerie to see that some of the things the book says would happen, towards the end of time, either have happened and/or are happening now. Other then the victory of good over evil, I pray not to see all of it come true.

    Unfortunately history does seem to repeat itself and if you've read Gibbon's 'The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire' (also not written in the most modern of language yet still a must read/listen) or Robinson's 'A History of Rome'(another must read/listen) you can see a lot of frightening similarities between the Decline of Rome and the United States today. I pray our country can beat the historical repeat and continue as the great nation it was founded to be.

    -God bless America (please)
    -Happy listening and Good Luck

    "Horrible Narrator"

    The subject is interesting enough, albeit delivered with some pretention, but the reader--ugh! He mispronounces many simple words, and sounds like a 12 year old reading to a group of 6 year olds in a terribly condescending tone. He actually made this sound like a children's book instead of the somewhat scholarly work it was intended to be. I couldn't finish it.

    "ALWAYS REMEMBER TO PREVIEW THE READER"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This story is read so horribly that I actually am writing a review. I'm so mad at myself that I wasted a credit on this. The reader is reading this story in a way that will make you want to punch yourself in the face for falling into the trap of trying to listen to this book. why why why did I not preview the reader?!

    "life saving knowledge is obtained from this book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    absolutely This book traces the battle between good and evil (God and Satan) from the start down through the years and then goes on to give insight on what to expect in the future. It also makes it clear what the results of our personal choices are in relation to the conflict between good and evil (namely the great controversy). This book gives deeper understanding to what the Bible teaches about what we need to do to have eternal salvation.


    What other book might you compare The Great Controversy to and why?

    This book gives a great insight and understanding to the prophecies in the Bible. It shows how some of the prophecies have been fulfilled and also explains what to expect from the prophecies that have not been fulfilled yet.


    Did Eddie Hernandez do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I found this reading to be done in a very monotone fashion. I would have liked to experience more expression in his voice.
