Faith Alone Review

Would you consider the audio edition of Faith Alone to be better than the print version?

I like the audio and bought it first, but bought the book to read along with the audio and I like this.

What other book might you compare Faith Alone to and why?

AM and PM by Charles Spurgeon.

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

He has a very nice voice, easy to listen to.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not really, wanted to read it every day, and start over next year.

A well narrated Biblical Martin Luther -based devotional

I enjoyed this well narrated, theologically and biblically well grounded Martin Luther devotional.
It is concise and yet contains very deep and pragmatic, applicable truths very relevant to our days.Martin Luther, no doubt is a giant Father of the evangelical Faith
I have read other devotionals for about four decades yet as soon as I stumbled upon this through research works, I fell in love with it. Our daily romance has been very fruitful. I recommend it to you too.

On Man's Courage

What made the experience of listening to Faith Alone the most enjoyable?

It provides a window into the day and time of Martin Luther: a context by which to comprehend the magnitude of his struggle.

What did you like best about this story?

Two Things: 1. The throes of conscience of a man committed to truth. 2. The strength of character that prevailed against the most powerful entity in his world.

What about Jonathan Petersen’s performance did you like?

I liked the cadence and linguistic dexterity in his performance.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Strength in one man's truth.

Any additional comments?

Martin Luther was a man propelled in his quest for truth -- regardless of its consequences. His example in his defense before the tribunal reflected his depth of character and resolve to stand upon that truth regardless of its consequences. With the absence of absolutes in today's world, there is very little upon which to anchor one's moral compass. This history provides a clear picture of moral and spiritual clarity rarely found in today's society.
