This special audiobook edition of the Lectures on Faith from Zion's Camp Books has been prepared especially with you in mind. It is narrated as a book, rather than with chapter and verse numbers as in the print edition. This will give you the greatest enjoyment as you listen to the words of the prophets and learn about faith.
The Lectures on Faith were originally prepared as materials for the School of the Prophets in Kirtland, Ohio in 1834 and were included in the Doctrine and Covenants from 1835 to 1921.

This performance is so awful it makes it unlistenable. It is extremely difficult to understand and hear the reader. I consider this purchase a big waste of money as now I need to go read the actual book since I couldn't stand listening to it. Such a disappointment.
This is a very powerful and important work by one of the greatest men in the history; a man who, I believe, knew more about the Plan of Salvation and the Heavens than any other man to ever walk this Earth, excepting only Jesus Christ Himself. I strongly encourage the reading of this book. It deserves 5*s.
That being said, the narrator is so monotone that he sounds like a low grade computer voice. It is the worst narration I have heard from any other reader since becoming a member of Audible & whoever cast this reader should be fired. I don't expect Will Wheaton or Tim Curry to narrate every book, but this reader's monotone and amateurish narration offends my ears. It is for this reason that I give it 4* (the book deserves 10* and the reader deserves -3*). I am grading not only the book but the narration as well, in other words the Audible version of this book. I will avoid all audio books with this reader.
Read the book! Avoid the audio version with this reader! Unless you have insomnia and want a sleep aid.
The narrator has an awful voice. It sounds like he is going to break down and cry.
Wow! The production quality is really bad. At one point he makes this "arrrgggh" noise and the repeats the previous sentence. It just sounds like an amateur decided to record this.
I almost didn't buy this book because of the reviews about the narrator. Oh my goodness - have these people never attended a lecture?? This is not a professional narrator but it's certainly not terrible. The reader appears to be an older man and sounds a bit like a professor. While I wouldn't want to listen to a full size story by him this small 2 hour work is just fine! And the truth is there aren't any other audio versions available. So I've been able to work out in the yard AND listen to a profoundly deep book. I'm a happy camper.
I love Lectures on Faith. It contains many insights on how faith functions; however, it is extremely hard to listen to. I had to completely discontinue listening to this because the reader has a way of reading that distracts from the content. I'll just stick with the written text.
The content is amazing, and worth the listen. That being said, it is one of the most difficult narrations I have listened to! I have purchased books before because people were being overly critical of the narrator. I tried everything I could think of to like this one. It took so much effort to understand the words that it was difficult to absorb their meaning. At At least it was tone and not attitude. He can get some inflection in his voice and still learn to be a good narrator.
This short read is a powerful explanation on faith as a principle of action and power in Deity as well as in Man. Why it's necessary, how we exercise it, and on whom our faith should be in are all addressed in the most intellectually satisfying manner.
