    "Poor quality"

    I have purchased and given multiple copies of MTC as a tool to spread the gospel. The audio falls short however. Ending with a lenghtly telephone interview of the author which is terrible in quality and content. It comes across like a cheap attempt to sell books and is a complete turn off. I would not give the recording to anyone who is not a believer. Very sad...could be a powerful tool. Should be re-recorded w/o the interview.

    "The reading is fast and easy to fall behind."
    If you could sum up More Than a Carpenter Today in three words, what would they be?

    Amazing content.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I greatly appreciate the effort of the author but when he is reading it sounds like he is trying to finish it as fast as possible. I love the content but compared to other good narration it is just too fast and hard to follow. Too bad because the content is amazing.


    Any additional comments?

    Please re-narrate at a more reasable pace. I know this was not deliberate and I appreciate the effort of the author.

    "hhhmmm, something to think about"

    Recommended to me by TJ Casey, a first time author for me, a popular, widely distributed book about being a Christian and believing in Jesus Christ as the son of God who was brought into the world to die for our sins. It attempts to serve as a testamonial to be used to answer some of the key questions you might have about what it means to be a Christian. The book tries to answer some of the questions one might be having a hard time believing. A key point in the book I hadn't thought of was Jesus 12 disciples. After the resurrection, the majority of them thought why did I waste so much time following this guy that's now gone, what was the purpose? Then they recommitted and showed they were willing to die for what they believed, what Jesus had taught them. If you have questions about being a Christian, need confirmation or reaffirmation, then give this book a try. It's a short read, the audio version, which the author narrated, is less than 2 hours.

    "Certainly not C.S. Lewis"

    Where was the evidence? This guy is just cranking out books, not much substance. Bart Ehrman offers a much better historical perspective.

    "An exceptional Audible book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of More Than a Carpenter Today to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the book version, but the audio is excellent


    What was one of the most memorable moments of More Than a Carpenter Today?

    When Josh McDowell says that he originally did his research to more or less make a mockery to Christianity, because he was a unbeliever


    Have you listened to any of Josh McDowell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first time experiencing any book by Josh McDowell


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

    Just so satisfying to listen to the proof and research Josh did and the total reverse that his research did to his faith.


    Any additional comments?

    A great book, and Josh continues to update his audio to new listeners. Amazing how many copies have made there way around the world.
