A really good book destroyed by the ignorance of Judaism, Hebrew, name pronuntiation, etc.
If the reader did not know how to pronounce theological, Jewish, etc. words he should NOT have taken the job. What a shame!
Books like this should be read by the author or a well-informed person.
The book needs to be re-recorded.

Jesus Among Other Gods is a brilliant defense of the uniqueness of the Christian message. In addition to giving you the benefit of an impressive breadth of reading and study, Ravi Zacharias shares his personal journey from despair and meaninglessness to his discovery that Jesus is who He said He is.

The book is good, the reader was abysmal. Not only mispronouncing Hebrew, but also ancient authors' names (who is Jósephos?). People get audio books to learn. Learning from her would cause shame in any discussion where an informed person enters the conversation. What a waste! They should re-record with a different reader because the book deserves it.

Just as a rock climber's handhold enables him to master the mountain, a firm grasp on God's word empowers us to traverse the challenging, risky slopes of life. Grasping God's Word helps college students, beginning seminary students, and other serious listeners get a grip on the solid rock of scripture - how to read it, how to interpret it, and how to apply it.

Great teaching. Some really annoying silent breaks that are too long. Also, content is not the whole book, but a synthesis. The worst is that Audible never bothers to actually properly name the chapters in their books.

The relationship that matters most to your daughter isn't the one with her mother - it's the one with you, Dad. Her self-esteem, choices, behavior, character, and even her ideas about or choice of a marriage partner are all directly tied to you, as the most important representative to her of the male species.

Either God arranged the Cosmos for His habitation or for man's. Both are in conflict. The author wants both, but it doesn't work. Also, altough he insists the word "create" doesn't have to do with physical origins, at many points, especially when he contrasts his view with those of others, he uses "create" in exactly the sense he says it doesn't have! What?
The voice of the reader is good, but they need to use informed people next time as he consistently mispronounces the Hebrew words.

Highlighting the fascinating link between a child’s neurological development and the way a parent reacts to misbehavior, No-Drama Discipline provides an effective, compassionate road map for dealing with tantrums, tensions, and tears - without causing a scene. Defining the true meaning of the “d” word (to instruct, not to shout or reprimand), the authors explain how to reach your child, redirect emotions, and turn a meltdown into an opportunity for growth.
