Publisher's Summary

The Cure gives the diagnosis of this century's religious obsession with sin-management. It has poisoned the Church, obscuring the Original Good News and sending millions away-wounded, angry and cynical, from nearly any organized expression of faith. The Cure offers an authentic experience in Christ that frees some from a self-rewarded righteousness, and others from a beaten down striving for a righteousness they can never seem to attain. The Cure infuses a relational theology of grace and identity, which alone can heal, free and create sustainable, genuine, loving, life-giving communities.

Needed a proper narrator

Would you consider the audio edition of The Cure: What If God Isn't Who You Think He Is and Neither Are You? to be better than the print version?

The narrator's voice is very jarring and you end up listening to it and her extreme annunciations instead of what she's saying. Clearly she was the wrong choice for this book. This book needed a calm, sage-type that understood the subject matter and took the time to read it properly. This narrator has so much energy, sounds like a computer spitting out words, and speaks so fast -- she does not suit the subject matter whatsoever. She does the book a great disservice, sadly. Her 'alternate' character voice is so nasally and robot-like ~~ it belongs in a children's or fantasy book. It was supposed to belong to a mentor-like character, yet it was hard not to laugh while listening to it. Completely unfortunate.

Otherwise, this is a great, concise book that will likely be extremely illuminating to most who read it. I'm contemplating purchasing it in non-audible form because the content is so good, but I won't because I'll never read it. Considering this book is only a few hours long, the authors should have the book re-published with a new narrator. That I would purchase and listen to often. This is important information, it highlights perspectives that actually can change lives very quickly. Sadly, it took all of my willpower to finish listening to it AND to glean the meaning/nature of what was being said, due to the narrator.

Worst narrator I've experienced

There just wasn't much I can recommend here. The tone of the writing seemed patronizing, as if talking to a child. And the narrator made it worse. I hate to be so critical of anyone, but she does not have the voice for this work. If you want a book along these lines, I highly recommend "Accidental Pharisees." Don't know if it's on Audible but it is excellent.

Just didn't enjoy it -had to force myself to finish

Hate to criticize anyones works but between the strange narration ( a girl reading a book written by a male author with mixes of her trying to imitate other male characters in the story well it took me several chapters to stop laughing at it) note: she was a very clear reader

As far as content it was the same stuff I have heard in his other book just re-done. It was in story form which can be a great way to teach unless the content lacks any real connection with real life. Well with that said aside from a few nuggets of wisdom ( like having a great baked potato served with a really tough steak) I would not recommend it.

One rambling sentence....

I should have read this book instead of listening to the audible version. I'm still not 100% sure the audible "voice" was not "digital". It's as though the reader never begins a new sentence or takes a breath. DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS BOOK. I believe the content is good but "narrator" is just awful. I'm sorry to give such a bad review. :-/

I love the content... Life changing.

What did you love best about The Cure: What If God Isn't Who You Think He Is and Neither Are You??

This book has life-changing truths that will absolutely rock your world, IF YOU LIVE THEM. John, Bruce, and Bill take the first chapter of TrueFaced and expand on the metaphor of the two paths and it is illuminating, challenging, and beautiful.

What didn’t you like about Brooke P. Anderson’s performance?

The reader was not the right choice for this work. This book is full of profound truth that must be digested, and therefore must be communicated with proper inflection and timing and gentleness. The reader was very staccato, nasally, too fast, and didn't inflect right. Every time I turned the book on, I had to get to a point where I could get past the performance so could actually absorb some of the content. Sentences that needed a slow ending and long pause afterward were rushed and merged with the next sentence so that I had to rewind and pause just to grasp the truth that was written. Nothing against the reader herself, this book just needed a different performance.

Any additional comments?

This material is fantastic. Please read it, and do so with an open heart. Allow God to speak to you through it. If this performance is your only access to the material, don't let that stop you from getting it. See past the performance and absorb the truth. Your life will be changed for the better!

Great concept to blend allegory with teaching

A nice concise way to introduce readers to the Exchanged Life (makes me think of Bob George in content). The narrator seriously mispronounced some words which was distracting. I want to recommend this title to many of my counseling clients.

PLEASE redo!!!

Would you listen to The Cure: What If God Isn't Who You Think He Is and Neither Are You? again? Why?

Not with this narrator! Was extremely hard to keep listening. Only the outstanding content kept me going.

Wonderful book!

Absolutely loved this book! It really paints a beautiful picture of the what the Gospel is.

I do wish you had a male narrator, as I feel it's clearly written from a male perspective. Also, some of the voices the actress uses are silly and distracting.

Other than that, like I said just loved it!
