Filled with humor, wisdom and loving detail, the powerful story of Peter Marshall's life has touched the hearts and minds of millions of people. It's a story about love - the love between a dynamic man and his God, and the tender love between a man and the woman he married. It is also the gripping adventure of a poor Scottish immigrant who became chaplain of the United States Senate and one of the most revered men in America.
A Man Called Peter became the number-one best-seller when it was published in 1951, and around the world lives were changed by reading of the chaplain's remarkable faith.
In the foreword to this audiobook, Peter's son writes, "Even when [Dad's] words were preached 'secondhand'. . . in the movie version of A Man Called Peter, they had an amazing effect on people." Through Peter's story and the compelling sermons and prayers included in A Man Called Peter, you will discover insight into God, man, and life on earth and hereafter. You will also be encouraged by the realization that "if God can do so much for a man called Peter, he can do as much for you."

Catherine Marshall was a gifted author. The story is extraordinary and inspirational. I have found it most uplifting. The narration by Renee Ertl, however, is sadly lacking. She has a pleasant voice, but mispronounces many words and has a halting, stilted style of reading. She constantly misinterprets phrases, putting odd emphasis and pauses where they don't belong. It interferes with the listening experience, causing you to focus on her style instead of this great biography of an exceptional man. You are constantly aware that she is reading, and not very well. It's a lot like an elementary school student struggling to read poetry without inflicting it with an unnatural sing-song. Too bad. I'll never get another audio book performed by her. Doesn't anyone listen to these things before they are released for distribution?
It should have been written by a non-involved 3rd party.
She is his wife, but she sounded too proud of him and herself.
This book had no pizazz. Boring.
I loved her book Christy but found myself very disappointed in this.
This book is supposed to be about a man full of faith. He was, but this is a boring book.
