The enemy wants us to feel rejected, left out, lonely, and less than. When we allow him to speak lies through our rejection, he pickpockets our purpose. Cripples our courage. Dismantles our dreams. And blinds us to the beauty of Christ's powerful love. In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences with rejection - from the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father to the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over.

I am on my second listen to this book in 24 hours and have been tremendously blessed by the content. Lysa hits the nail on the head for me on all points. I especially love the prayers in chapter 14. Ginny Welsh's narration doesn't really suit my taste. I found myself initially irritated by her voice and reading style. However, the quality of the content enabled me to bear it.

John Charles Ryle’s best known works have been reissued and widely read over many years. The fine qualities of his writings have ensured that his books are still popular and useful. This volume has become a classic work and is known and loved by many throughout the world. In days when evangelical preachers are accused of being either superficial or dull, we have here a great example of one who was neither of these things. As Bishop Ryle applies his texts, the listener will find his soul examined.

What a marvelous work the Lord, by His Spirit, has brought forth through JC Ryle. His sermons have blessed many for generations. Sobering and edifying, as always. I truly enjoyed the narration. The perfect voice to convey this work.

You have an enemy...and he's dead set on destroying all you hold dear and keeping you from experiencing abundant life in Christ. What's more, his approach to disrupting your life and discrediting your faith isn't general or generic, not a one-size-fits-all. It's specific. Personalized. Targeted. So this audiobook is your chance to strike back. With prayer. With a weapon that really works.

I began listening to this book on Audible and midway through decided to purchase the paperback as well. Having both versions is truly beneficial. Hearing Pricilla reading is like listening to wise counsel (given of God) from a dear sister in Christ compelling and encouraging me to be clear about who is our true enemy, understanding the subtle strategies he uses to attack, and standing firm on God's promises - teaching me how to bring my petitions before Him who has already conquered the devil. This book is the exact prescription I needed to bolster my prayer life, personal bible study, and communion with my Lord. By it, I have learned to be more deliberate and focused in my prayers. I have gifted copies of the book to a few friends, and would give a copy to every sister I know if I had the means to do so. A very powerful tool to sharpen you sword. Highly recommended.
