This collection is an effective way to learn about John Wesley - who he was and what he believed. However, I found that I really had to concentrate hard to listen through the narrator's strong over performance.
This book is very deep in its Theological info and very good and informative but this Narrator is not the right person for the job. He has a strong voice and a good variety of intonations but he is trying too hard to use all his talents of speech and not enough attention to the content of the book. He makes it very hard to catch all the very deep detail of the work with his changing of voice and volume. Also there is some sort of background noise like people talking and outside noises, which are very irritating.
I really appreciated being able to hear some of John Wesleys sermons. The big downside was the narrator . Very annoying to listen to.
I've listened to this over and over again for several weeks. This book is so much more powerful when listened to than when read. I have the kindle version to highlight some of Wesley's practical teachings. GOD's word overflows from the depth of John's passion and boldness for our LORD and His word.
The doctrine from this collection of sermons is not spoken much in churches of today but every Christian would benefit from hearing these words. Many of the denominations that grew from Wesley's teaching have gone their own way and even though they have carried with them some form of the Weslyan tradition, the power spoken through these sermons have for the most part been lost.
John Wesley's sermons can be a bit of a challenge to read for many, but I found this audiobook to be an excellent adjunct to reading the text. (Read the text also! )
It was read with emotion and feeling that brought it to life for me!
The book is well read and shows the deep thinking of Wesley. As such it does take quite a bit of concentration. While I don't agree with everything written I found nearly 100% of the book good for my soul.
Looking forward to reading it.
A faithful and fresh interpretation of some of John Wesley's Landmark sermons. Unfortunately the narrator does a sort of half-English accent, as if he were an American King. Get past the narrator, so you can hear these wonderful sermons!
The sermons are prophecy c for our times. You don't hear strong preaching like this anymore. It is rare. Powerful messages for totally committed Christians.
