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

    Yes. It is informative and encouraging. It is also a great study of salvation history from a Catholic perspective.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Paul Smith’s performances?

    Not likely. The one negative about the book is that the reader just didn't seem all that interested in what he was reading. The beginning was especially difficult to listen to and then the performance got a bit better, then flat, then better - I think you get the idea.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. The subject matter needed time to digest.


    Any additional comments?

    Dr. Hahn has a great talent in writing in that he can make heady theology approachable to all levels. When he speaks he is very engaging. Publishers of audio books should take better care in matching readers to the authors.

    Story
    "Awesome! Explains God's Love and Mercy."
    Where does A Father Who Keeps His Promises rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book top them all when it comes to understanding God's Will in the Old Testament.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How Scott simplifies everything that I at first found difficult to comprehend.


    Which character – as performed by Paul Smith – was your favorite?

    God


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No matter how much God's people betrayed Him, He always stood by them and even gave them Him only Son.


    Any additional comments?

    Many Christians know the New Testament and are bewildered or confused by the Old Testament. Scott Hahn simplifies the Old Testament and makes it so easy to understand the connections with the New Testament. Thank you Scott Hahn!

    I like Star Wars, Foundation series, Redwall Series, Bloody Jack series, and westerns for fiction. In nonfiction, I like books about Catholic theology, American history and government, and economics.

    Story
    "Good introduction to the Old Testament"
    What did you love best about A Father Who Keeps His Promises?

    Scott Hahn introduces the Old Testament by pointing out how it is the story of God's creation of man, his promise of salvation, and how despite man constantly straying from God through sin and infidelity, God always keeps his promise to man and stays with him.


    What other book might you compare A Father Who Keeps His Promises to and why?

    If you like this book, you will also like Peter Kreeft's "You Too Can Read The Bible". This book (Hahn's) focuses more on the beginning of the Bible and goes deeper here. Kreeft's book gives a brief overview of just about every book in the Bible, but not in as much detail. Both reveal underlying themes that made the Bible more understandable and meaningful to me, showing how history is really "His Story", the story of God's love for man, His invitation to eternal life, and what happens when we go astray.


    Any additional comments?

    This book would make an excellent companion to a Bible study on Genesis, Exodus, and some of the early books of the Bible.

    Story
    "Excellent content"
    Would you listen to A Father Who Keeps His Promises again? Why?

    Excellent content but the reading is a bit monotonous and not converstational. So at times I dozed off.


    What did you like best about this story?

    how the crucifixion was the 4th cup and consummation of the Passover Seder.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Read the book like he was talking to someone. Not just reading it to himself aloud. Monotonous at times.


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

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Very good solid Christian teaching that will motiviate you to live in a more Christ Like way.
