Good book for difficult times

Narrator sounds like a young Dr Dobson. Book answers questions for those lost or in pain. While Dr Dobson isn't a theologian, he understands much & shares his understanding in this book. I would recommend this book highly, but also follow up with others, who are theologians & have a deeper, more thoroughly studied understanding of why God does what He does (like Lee Stroebel or N.T. Wright). Simply Christian is a marvellous book for those seeking understanding.

Heartbreaking but rewarding

I have often had these questions, it is nice to know that I am not alone in that. well written book from many different perspectives. Sometimes the recording was a bit quiet but it was still clear.

When God Doesn't Make Sense

James Dobson never disappoints. The narrator is great! Pleasant and engaging. The Content is relevant and reassuring. A must for any Christian whether or not you're going thru some struggles.

Learning to trust in God Time & will

Loved the book, it helps you to see God’s heart for us and lets you see the root evil. Also it reminds us to wait with faith for his time to answer, and that his will is perfect for us.

I love the analogy of the vine that grew on their tree.
I would recommend this book to anyone who feels outcast.
I think the book deserves much credit and could help many that have lost their hope in life.

Poor Audio

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The content was VERY good! Just what I was wanting...
But, the audio was terrible. The voice is very pleasing, but the sound was so poor that at times the audio was nearly impossible to hear. And, then other parts would be just fine. It seems like the audio was recorded at many different levels of volume, not one consistent volume.

What didn’t you like about Mike Trout’s performance?

The voice went loud, then soft, and was not consistent. Couldn't hear at all,some of the voice....with volume at max! Then other parts were fine.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?
