The narrating killed it.

I was looking forward to listening to uplifting stories but the narration was awful. I got 15 minutes in and he took his, whatever accent he had, and gave the hispanic woman in a story an accent. If thats what is hispanics sound like than I will never speak again. His tone was almost perky throughout but some stories should not be read as such. Again, i only got through 15 minutes or so.

interesting stories

Great listen. I recommend. The only con was that there were more negative supernatural stories than positive.

More of a summary of testimonials...

Any additional comments?

It's a compilation of Christian testimonials about miracles.

Reader's voice was clear and well read, I just don't particularly care fore the "nice guy sappy voice".

God Is Great !

Awesome book ! It was so encouraging to listen to so many people's accounts of their brush with the miraculous . I knew I had to buy it after reading several reviews of people being offended by the Christian content . As Jesus said : many will be offended, will betray one another , and will hate one another . Mathew 24:10

Not what I expected

Would you try another book from James Stuart Bell and/or Dean Gallagher?

The stories give the impression that if you are not a missionary, meditate, or stray from the Bible in anyway, you are not worthy. I do not like this book. I thought it would be inspitationaly, but the stories are so simplistic, they seem as if they are written for 1st grade Sunday school class.

Would you ever listen to anything by James Stuart Bell again?

nope

Which scene was your favorite?

none

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Angels, Miracles, and Heavenly Encounters?

most of the book

Any additional comments?

nope

Overly religious and very narrow-minded

What disappointed you about Angels, Miracles, and Heavenly Encounters?

Like most of the Audible books I have listened to on this subject, the author is not interested in exploring this topic in any kind of open-minded way but he already "knows" the cause and effect of these phenomena.
Everything is presented through a very narrow Christian aperture which is fine as far as it goes but I would have liked some kind of warning before buying. If it weren't for Audible's new return policy, I would be seriously considering cancelling my subscription because this has happened several times before.
There are many books out there on the subject of angels and miracles that are an honest, non-prejudicial examination of the subject(s). Somehow these kinds of books never make it to Audible.
I frankly don't care what a person chooses to believe but I can live without the tedious repitition and the denigration of beliefs and practices that don't happen to fit into the author's worldview. From where I'm sitting, these are the kinds of fundamentalist views that maintain the illusion of separation between peoples, allowing hatred to prosper.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Don't know but I will steer away from these topics on Audible.

What about Dean Gallagher’s performance did you like?

The reading was lively with engaging inflection.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Angels, Miracles, and Heavenly Encounters?

All the fundamentalist Christian stuff but then there'd be no book. I was however particularly offended by the so-called "demonic" attack in the Buddhist temple. The implication was that the statue of the Buddha somehow attracted a demon because it is a false god. The demon then of course attacked the only Christian minister present. Well, I'm thinking if this so-called demon can read minds like this, then maybe he attacked the one person who was thinking less-than loving and respectful thoughts during a solemn ritual for the dead that didn't happen to be Christian...

Any additional comments?

Better not.

Encouraging!

This book contains short, faith raising, real life stories of God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) protecting and providing for His people. It's not about 'heroes of the faith' from either the distant or recent past. It affirms His miraculous care in the present for His people, ordinary people like you and me, when the unexpected and unwanted happens. I found myself many times thanking and praising God for His involvement in the circumstances of His people. Because it's a series of short real life stories it's easy to listen in short snatches - perfect for listening when beginning your day or winding down at night.
