The narrator was fantastic! The story was very interesting but got a little long.
I am glad for my new insights into the Chinese culture.

On the morning of September 11, 2001, two men meet in a smoky stairwell of the World Trade Center. One is Eric Michaels, a driven financial manager from Los Angeles who has been busy climbing the corporate ladder, often at the expense of his wife and young son. The other is Jake Bryan, a New York City fireman devoted to his wife and daughter. In the midst of the crisis, Eric falls on the stairs and Jake stops to help him up. The two men freeze momentarily, stunned by the uncanny resemblance between them.

For mothers of young children, this audiobook is a lovely offering of hope, truth, freedom, wild grace, friendship, and the knowledge that they are not alone. Many moms have dreamed of life with children, and yet the reality seems far away from their dreams. Their hearts are committed, but their spirits are sagging. This audiobook is a coffee-talk from one woman who is still “figuring-it-out-in-the-mess” (Sarah Mae) and much-needed counsel from one who is older and wiser (Sally Clarkson).

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book helps us each see that we are not lone rangers, we all have issues and through time, God's help and each other, we can make it through. Sally and Sarah explain the ways to have success through the busy years of parenting.

What about Nan Gurley and Chelsea Thayer ’s performance did you like?

It was hard knowing Sally's voice in real life and hearing the reader speak for her but the reader did a good job.

Thankful to hear about the women that have lived lives of honor. Inspiring because most of them were just regular women facing the challenges before them and by trusting in God, lived in victory.

How could a loving God send people to Hell? Will people have a chance after they die to believe in Jesus and go to heaven? With a humble respect for God’s Word, Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle address the deepest questions you have about eternal destiny. They’ve asked the same questions. Like you, sometimes they just don’t want to believe in Hell. But, as they write, “We cannot afford to be wrong on this issue.” This is not a book about who is saying what. It’s a book about what God says.

If you could sum up Erasing Hell in three words, what would they be?

What if it's true?

What was one of the most memorable moments of Erasing Hell?

I liked it when Francis Chan gave Biblical evidence for his perspectives.

What does Preston Sprinkle bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I just like to move rather then sit.
