What about Dorothy Deavers’s performance did you like?
Dorothy Deavers did an excellent job at narrating. The tone of her voice, the emotion, the pauses - everything was awesome. She was the perfect person for this.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
When we encounter challenging and sometimes seemingly insurmountable situations, more often than not, we feel alone and think that we will never make it over. Then we meet a few other people, or that one person, with whom we can identify. They have been through the same and/or similar situation(s) and with God, they made it over. This book has been so encouraging to me! I've thought, I've cried, I've questioned, I've prayed while reading/listening to this book. The author's candid accounts his journey to God is very a testimony that no matter how far we run, what we get involved in, how hurtful and unfair life has been to us, God is and will always be by our side and He will carry us through. His story can reach so many that others may not be able to simply because he's been there. No matter what you're facing, this book is a must read. You will be encouraged, strengthened, and most importantly brought closer to God as you prayerfully read this book.

i listened to this book while working around the house. i enjoyed this narration and found myself often reflecting upon my own existence, when struck by parallels in my life as formulated by the author. that is good thing.
What did you love best about Know Peace Within?
The honesty, the message, and the humility of the author and the spirit with which the narrator narrated.
What other book might you compare Know Peace Within to and why?
Many of Mr. Harris' spiritual observations remind me of Charles Spurgeon's writing. Mr. Harris has a keen ability to employ potent words that communicate powerfully and beautifully the spiritual truths found in God's Word.
What does Dorothy Deavers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Not only am I the audio engineer on this project, but Dorothy Deavers is my fiance, so of course, I love everything about her beautiful voice! But, one thing that I feel sets her apart from most other female narrators I've heard is her raw emotion. Clearly, the same Spirit that moved Mr. Harris to write this book was the same Spirit working through Dorothy while narrating it.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Go from NO peace within to KNOW peace within!
Any additional comments?
As the audio engineer on this project, I must say Mr. Harris' writing moved us deeply. We thoroughly enjoyed recording this as it was superbly written, Spirit-filled, and it ministered to our hearts. Like King David, L. David Harris is clearly a man after God's own heart. Having corresponded back and forth with Mr. Harris on this project I can testify that he is one of the most genuine Christian men I have ever met and that genuine Spirit comes across so well in his writing. Mr. Harris has a way with words. He chooses them carefully and he is skilled at using them powerfully in this book. I highly recommend, not only this book by L. David Harris, but any book by this author! One thing that touched me greatly, was when Mr. Harris was interviewed on a Christian broadcast he was asked, "So, David, after Jesus came into your life, how did your life change?" He replied, "One of the things that was evident immediately was that I learned to smile." <------ There's so much in that statement when Jesus is in it! And that's what I love about David's writing. His words are simple, yet very potent! "I learned to smile", as simple as that may sound, frankly, is one of the most profound and delightful theological truths I've ever heard from a repentant believer. This book, whether in hardcopy form, audio, or whatever, will be a blessing to anyone in their search for peace within.
