This is an incredibly powerful book on the concept of brokenness. Sheila inspires me to walk this life before God. She inspires me to except that my brokenness may not be fixed in this life, that pain and suffering are not an aberration necessarily. She reminds me that God is never surprised by my circumstances and pains. She inspires me to press on accepting what God leads and permits and trusting in him.

The Christian Atheist speaks directly to those who believe in God but live as if he doesn’t exist to inspire them into a deeper Christ-filled life.

What did you like best about The Christian Atheist? What did you like least?

The book is well thought out and written.

What didn’t you like about Tom Schiff’s performance?

The narrator, is pretty hard to listen to. It seems like the guy reading really doesn't believe what he is reading and is trying to make the content boring. What's more, Craig Groeshel is a fairly animated speaker whereas Tom Schiff read in a pretty monotone voice. Audible, please find narrators that are a better match.
