Grand indeed

Ravi is always a very cogent thinker, but this book struck me a more than just his normal insightful teaching. Rather than being being an essay on a single theme, this to me seemed to be a type of "unifier" of the themes that God writes on our lives each day. A particuarly helpful book if you are seeking for God's pattern in your life.

Great book read by the author

Ravi Zacharias is a public speaker as well as an author, and he is the perfect narrator for this beautifully written, inspiring book. The Grand Weaver works well in the audible format although a number of times I have stopped the recording in order to write down something that is especially notable. Well worth the purchase.

God's Hand in My Life

Would you listen to The Grand Weaver again? Why?

yes The book is encouraging to me as I pass through difficult times, as the author reminds me in many poignant stories how God truly works. All things are in His hands.

What other book might you compare The Grand Weaver to and why?

The book reminded me of 'Trusting God' by Jerry Bridges. Both books gave me a peace about knowing I could trust God with my life & experiences.

A masterful work

This book proved to be exactly what I needed when I needed it. I had just about finished reading it when I encountered a French girl who had been reading Fredrick Neitche in a coffee shop who was seeking life's truths. Her two month holiday in the U.S. was ending and she was finding no answers to the questions plaguing her heart. Over the next 2 1/2 hrs. we talked through her worldviews and the light of the Gospel began shedding upon her heart. She said it felt as though a key was unlocking in her heart. God used the Grand Weaver to help me discourse with her, probe her heart & thoughts and to apply God's Word upon her heart. I will forever be thankful for this resource being upon my heart and mind as I spoke to this young lady.

Thought-provoking read

What made the experience of listening to The Grand Weaver the most enjoyable?

in general, i love books read by the author and the Grand Weaver did not disappoint. I was encouraged to self-examine and inspired to see the possibilities of a life given to God's will.

What did you like best about this story?

Ravi uses stories to get the reader thinking about the complex idea of purpose in terms of tangible, relate-able, events.

Any additional comments?

So good that i have now bought the paperback for my notes.

Excellent Presentation of Life's Purpose and Reality

Ravi's approach to conveying life's truth and reality is both refreshing and stimulating.

The book's title is an apt description of it's contents. Ravi presents the what, why and how of God's hand in our lives today and into eternity. His personal stories and illustrations, and of course, his thought provoking explanation of God's reality calls us to make a clear choice:: do I truly believe in, and most importantly, will I choose to surrender to, the skillful hands of The Grand Weaver?

I chose to read this novel of Ravi's because of the desire to gain clarity on my purpose in life and who is behind it. I wasn't disappointed. I highly recommend this title.

Thoughtful and Alluring

None could write on this topic so fully and none could narrate with so eloquence than Mr. Zacharias.

Simply great - Very Recommended

Where does The Grand Weaver rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Regarding apologetics I believe Rabi Zacharias is one of the best if not the best militant in my personal opinion, the man knows his word, and eficiently transforms ignorance into enlightment with the help of the word of God. GREAT BOOK.

Ravi Z speaks the truth with love!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Grand Weaver to be better than the print version?

I've experienced both. I enjoyed hearing Ravi's tender voice delivering his message of love.

Ravi is Astounding

I’ve been following Ravi’s apologetics for some time now. This is the first book I’ve actually read/listened to by him. He continues to amaze me, and I’m so thankful that he allows God to use him in such a way.... ❤️

As the first anniversary of my son’s birth and death draw near, I listened to this and it brought peace to my heart. God always has a plan and a purpose- even when we don’t understand.

Really Inspiring

I really enjoyed this book, particularly as it was Ravi Zacharias reading it himself.

It has left me with much to think about and changes to consider for my life.

I love how Ravi 'wove' the book and used the theme of weaving throughout, very skilfully. It made the book flow very well. I also love Ravi's use of story both to illustrate and to illuminate. It helps ideas and thoughts to stick in the mind.

I will definitely come back to this book to listen again as it was so rich in treasures of wisdom and good, sound teaching rooted in the Bible.

Thanks for a great book, brilliantly read. :-)

Don't not read it. Instead, read it. 😀

Ravi is a great thinker and presents the Christian faith clearly.
I'll certainly be listening again.

fantastic book

One of my all time favourite apologists and easily the most fluent one. one thing he surpasses most authors and speaker on, is his ability to bridge the gaps by putting things into context that one can easily identify with and this book does exactly that. highly recommend

Such profound wisdom

I have always loved Ravi's talks and chose this audio book to continue to hear from him since he went Home earlier this year. It did not disappoint, giving truth and meaning to the fabric of life. There were many rewinds to grasp the fullness of a point and chuckles and tears too.
Highly recommended.
