God does what it takes to get our attention.It’s the message of the Bible. It’s the message of this book: the relentless pursuit of God. God on the hunt. God in the search. Peeking under the bed for hiding kids, stirring the bushes for lost sheep. Searching, wrestling, pulling us back to him, over and over again. Kind, then stern. Tender and tough. Faithfully firm. Patiently urgent. Eagerly tolerant. Softly shouting. Gently thundering.God is the pilot and we are the passengers. Though we may not understand his hand, we can always trust his heart. We can trust him to do what’s right.A Gentle Thunder is for every reader who needs a reminder of God’s love, an assurance of his strength, and an example of his kindness.

I intend to keep this audio so I can listen to it again and again.
I couldn't listen to the whole book in one sitting...I needed to pause every now and then to ponder and digest what Max had been discussing. Thought provoking, Scripture based and sound Biblical teaching.
The narrator's voice I found soothing and easy to listen to. Any future books with this narrator (who is not the author, Max) I wouldn't hesitate to buy and listen to.
Well narrated, points well made with great examples & lots of scripture to back it up! Will enjoy listening to it again!
This book was just what I needed to reflect, be directed and grow spiritually. I myself am going through a point in my life where I'm truly understanding about judging people, this book nailed perfectly about judging others. I read the bible often, but just a few years ago I didn't read at all. I didn't know the message of God's words and how poetic, loving, forgiving empathetic and noble/holy the Lord really was. I never knew or saw the woven lives of people long ago, reflect my own today. How could God's words still have an impact today from thousands of years and still have a pulling of the heart strings til his day. This book was informational and informal, touching the heart of listener by combining scripture and actual life events to help the listener relate better. This book gives the listener an reality check, of seeing and knowing who God and Jesus Christ is in their own life. For we are the fruits of the vine and God is the Gradener. Great Book.... All Must Read!
Max Lucado has an extraordinary gift that once you start one of his books you dont want to rest until you finish it. And best of all, when he talks I hear God whispering in my ears. God bless you my friend.
