This starts out a bit slow, but grabs your attention shortly. Enough twists to keep you eager to hear more. You will hear a message just for you by the middle of the book, listen carefully.
Author is also narrator, he does fairly well for a long listen.
Ted Dekker has a match with this author.
Enjoy!

Any additional comments?

The Bible narration was ok, it was not an accurate translation however. When the accuracy is questioned, the truth of the Word is questionable.

Nick Seagrave is a disillusioned business executive who has lost loved ones to tragedy and his family to neglect. Now, at a point of great crisis, he finds himself inexplicably transported to what appears to be another world. Suddenly he's confronted with profoundly clear views of his own past and personality. And he's enabled to see, hear, taste, and smell the realities of both heaven and hell - realities that force him to face dangers and trials far greater than any he's known before.
