I can't comment on the content because the narration is so horrible. The narrator pauses every 3 or 4 words as if they can't really read out loud at a grade school level. it's HORRIBLE. I was so looking forward to this book and then so let down. Please don't buy this book until they remake it.

Reading the Kindle version might be a better experience. The content is orderly, but it is difficult to follow in the Audible format. It is the first Audible book with which I've had this experience.
Where does Perfecting the Saints: Bible Study and Commentary on the Book of James rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It ranks has one of the best Bible reference audiobooks I have ever listened to. I loved that with every cited verse, there was an in-depth explanation as to what the verse means today.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Happy that someone took the time to explain all these important verses.
I couldn't listen to this book. Something that should have been encouraging and uplifting was not worth listening to. The narrator can't read and has difficulty pronouncing words. His start and stop - stunted method of reading is sad. I won't get another book with him narrating.

The Bible and study materials are always worth the listening time. I ordered one and two, but was only able to endure the first.
Any additional comments?
I wish I could get my money back from this purchase. But it serves me right for not listening to a sample before buying.
This is a very poorly edited book (understatement - I don't think that it was edited or had any production standards at all)! It has just the bog standard disclaimers: i.e. Stating that the work is fictional and the persons mentioned are a figment of the author's imagination!! (I'm assuming that the author or the Publisher do not believe this study to be fictional). Well! If that were the only off putting thing, I may have persevered with this study, but...
Please don't just take my word for it - listen to the sample reading. It appears to be a recording of Kindle reading the book! It is TOTALLY ROBOTIC! It is Not being narrated at all! As such, there is no way that you can proceed with this as a study!
I've never encountered an Audiobook that was So Badly Presented! And I refuse to pay any money for this very poorly presented audio. I have no comment on the content, because I can't assess it, based on its delivery.
Do. Not. Buy.
Although the delivery takes a little getting used to, before too long one becomes focused on the message and a wonderfully in depth and straightforward study it is... And convicting. The Lord has so much work to do in this particular saint. I praise the Lord Jesus Christ for this brother's diligent service. I will listen to this again, God willing. Shalom Agape Amen
