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

    Yes ... very thought provoking and convicting. Piper presents God as the absolute center of man's attention in EVERY aspect of life and creation. This book is second to only the Bible!


    Any additional comments?

    Explanation for Low Performance Rating: It is always unfortunate when audio books cannot be indexed by the book's actual chapter divisions. It is frustrating when attempting to re-listen to a specific chapter. This is no reflection on the quality of the content of this book, but the format of the audio book.

    "EXCELLENT CONCEPT WELL DEVELOPED"
    Where does Desiring God rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Since it's the only one I have in its genre, it's not possible to rank it generally. In performance, #2.


    Any additional comments?

    The book opens the door to an entirely new way of viewing our relationship to God and the Christian life generally; and the view is more Biblical.

    "Good book but hard to listen to the reader"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Desiring God to be better than the print version?

    Have not read the printed version.


    Would you recommend Desiring God to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not the audio version


    Did Grover Gardner do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Grover Gardner is not easy to listen to.


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

    Neither. Its dry material the way it is read.


    Any additional comments?

    I will not purchase any more books read by Grover Gardner.
