    "A Multiple Must Listen"

    This is one of those books, that every-time i listen to it... it hits me in a whole new way. I love that John narrates his own books... for me, it gives me the personality behind his words.

    I give this my highest recommendation.

    "good life tools!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fathered By God to be better than the print version?

    as a man that didn't have a dad,and turns to god ,but needs understanding on how to move forward. this was a push or a leap that helped me get over the gap holding me back in life!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fathered By God?

    in the beginning with the bears, i didn't get it. but by the end it laid the footsteps!


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

    i was moved to find out what stage i am in and what stage i missed so i could transfer into the next stage correctly.

    "Just what I needed to hear"

    I always like it when an author reads his own book, and John has improved.

    More importantly, the message of the book resonated with my life journey—even though I'm a very different personality from John. I recommend this book to any man at any point in his journey. I listened through he book twice, six months apart, and I grew each time. This book has helped me recognize God's quiet voice in my daily challenges and victories.

    Thanks, John.

    "Please read this book"

    You may find your mind pushing back against some of these ideas but deep down your soul knows and longs that they are true. This book has awakened a part of my heart that has lied dormant for too long. I'm so thankful for John and his team; the experiences, wisdom and prayer they have used provide this resource.

    "Excellent Masculine Perspective"

    I feel like there needs to be a lot more attention to the masculine side of God and Christ and how that fosters the designed of a man. Great work!

    "Great audio and subject"

    This was my first audio book and I have to say I was very pleased with the tone and pace of the voice actor and author John Eldridge.

    Currently, I am an almost 40-year-old man that has lost both parents early in life. I have a wife and two beautiful young daughter so I found the early part of the book to be a bit of a challenge as I felt I had no son to deal with. As I continued on through the book though I found that quite a few points were very applicable to my place in life and I would imagine that will be the case with other readers as well. I found myself physically reacting to points that Eldridge made that really hit home with me personally.

    All in all this has been a great experience for my first audiobook and again the subject matter is really top notch. I highly recommend you check this out.
