Christian Book Nut

Very Great book. The Author did a masterful job on this one. This book should be on every ones reading list who really want to be strong, deep, heartfelt Christians. I plan to listen to it over and over.
This is one of the best narrators ever. He has a great control of his voice and can make you really feel like you are in the middle of the book, not just listening to it.

Outstanding intro and coverage of Christianity

If you've ever struggled to understand why such a grand drama was necessary to save mankind as we are told in the Bible, this is a fantastic help. There nuggets in here for the seasoned believer as well and Stott makes complex matters very accessible. Highly recommend this work.

As advertised

This actually is a very good book about Basic Christianity. The strength of this book however, is its call to action. It challenges you to make sure of your salvation, to correct those things that are not right in your life, and to begin living right for God.

encouraged!

As I continue thrusting forward into my Pastoral call I am deeply burdened by the lack of the Saints being equipped..so moved by these basic truths..I'm finishing the faith

Not my thing

I found this much too longwinded right from the very first chapter. Narrator somewhat monotonous.
