Audible Editor Reviews

Editor Raymond Arroyo gathers together some of the best Biblical teachings from Mother Angelica, television personality and Franciscan nun, in this funny and relatable compilation of over 30 years of comprehensive private lessons she gave to her nuns as well as assorted lay groups. Mother Angelica's gift is taking Scripture and making the characters human and relatable, with a no-nonsense and often humorous approach. Lorna Raver doesn't attempt easy impersonation in her performance, but rather approximates Mother Angelica's straight-to-the-point wryness with a smart and clever tone. These private lessons are pithy, yes, but also enlightening.

Publisher's Summary

The founder of the world's largest religious media empire shares her beloved wit and down-to-earth spirituality in Mother Angelica's Private and Pithy Lessons from the Scriptures. Editor Raymond Arroyo draws on hundreds of never-before-released private lessons to present the renowned nun's definitive take on the Good Book. Angelica provides readers with guided meditations and probing personal questions, and unearths an often-overlooked practical spirituality. She doesn't just explain the stories, she relates them to our daily lives, helping even those who've never opened the Bible appreciate its power and life-altering lessons. The apostles Paul (the little shrimp), Peter (that great bungler), and all the characters of the scriptures are suddenly human again, complete with their foibles and triumphs. Here is the Greatest Story, newly told as only Mother Angelica can. The Bible and you will never be the same.

    "Meditation at its best!!!"

    If you are serious about increasing your knowledge of scriptures and relationship with the Lord, i.e. become a saint, this audiobook will help you! This is the best book of meditation I have ever hear (or read). The woman who reads the book is very good at imitating mother angelica voice, including her sense of humor. Highly recommended. God Bless you Mother Angelica!!!

    "Awful"

    I listened for about an hour. It was an hour of pain and misery. What a waste of a credit!

    Geeze!
