Publisher's Summary

Jesus plus nothing; 100% natural. No additives. It's the truth you may never hear in church. The Naked Gospel is a chapter-by-chapter assault on the churchy jargon and double talk of our day. It puts forth a message that is simple but life-changing. With a fresh take on Scripture and unapologetic style, The Naked Gospel will challenge you to re-examine everything you thought you already knew.

Great book. Terrible, infomercial-like narration.

I really could not listen to more than a few minutes of listening to Don Reed's narration of this wonderful Andrew Farley book on grace. My ears hurt and I could not focus on the book, felt like I was listening to a really, REALLY cheesy and looooooong radio commercial from the 1940s. I would recommend Andrew Farley's other title, "God Without Religion", which is expertly narrated by Maurice England.

This will make you free

Andrew delivers a timely , well thought out apologetic for the true message of the new testament .

The modern parables that he uses really help to get the point across .

The narration in this book is okay but not the best I have heard ! Well worth the listen !

Really bad narration.

I enjoyed Andrew Farley's newest book, God Without Religion, so I decided to give this one a try. However, I couldn't get through more than about 15 minutes of listening to this one. The narrator is just unbearable which is sad because I'm quite sure that the book would be just as good as his newest one.

Great!

A step toward understanding the Bible's message for perhaps the first time. Legalism hates this message because it Liberates the captives by showing what Christ has really done for them in the Gospel! Satan hates this for the same reasons. Be Free for once; so you can Worship, and mean it!

Not my favorite

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, not on audio anyway. The reader of the book was awful. He sounded like a game show host, which when reading a book on Christ makes it even more awful.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Something in fiction.

What didn’t you like about Don Reed’s performance?

I did not like anything about this performance. Thought it was bad. Sorry Don.

Do you think The Naked Gospel needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes and no about the follow-up. I'm not sure that I agree with everything Farley has to say. This is a book I would feel better actually reading, as opposed to listening to it, so that I can go back and do my own research on some things Farley brings up.

Any additional comments?

I don't think Andrew Farley's book is "dangereous" l but I can see where his Naked Gospel could be confusing to some. I think he has some good points but they need to be flushed out better than they were in the book.

The Naked Gospel

I hope I can get through this book. The phony sounding narrator is horribly distracting from the message.

Worst Narrator I've ever listened to

Would you consider the audio edition of The Naked Gospel to be better than the print version?

No

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Don Reed?

100% yes!

Any additional comments?

The content in this book is great, but the narrator is just unbearable. Completely tone-deaf to the material. The entire book sounds like the announcer on the "Price is Right" describing the next item up for bids.

This book is not biblical.

This book contradicts biblical teachings. Be careful not to let his lies become your truths. There’s only one place where you can find the truth, and that is in the Bible. Although I agree with the author that we are no longer under the old law of the Old Testament, his conclusions are very extreme and not backed up by the Bible. Beware of any teacher that actually encourages you to disregard the teachings of Jesus. 2 Timothy 4: 3-4 For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine.Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.
