Publisher's Summary

With the same depth, sensitivity, and emotion that has made his novels beloved to millions, Charles Martin helps us engage the fundamental principles of our faith in new and inspiring ways.

Years ago, Martin cracked open his Bible and began wrestling with a few fundamental questions. He asked, “What if every single word of Scripture is absolutely true and I can trust it? How do I respond? Something in me should change, but what? How?” This audiobook is the result of that exploration.

Writing as our guide, he uses a storyteller’s imagination to illuminate key moments from the Scriptures, primarily from the life and ministry of Jesus. In addition, Martin shares key moments from his own journey as a disciple - and bond-servant - of Christ and a mentor to others. The result is a striking exploration of truth that helps us not just think differently but live differently. Today.

Includes a song written by Charles Martin’s son, only available in the audiobook edition. Appendices that include topical verses from Scripture are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Moved to tears

I am an LDS woman and thought it would not be within what I could not accept. But Charles's way or telling the stories about the Savior are so tender and real. He has a way of saying what is in the scriptures and bringing a reality I have not experienced before. I listed to "We are all Bleeders " several times . I am so grateful for your extreme wisdom in knowing the scriptures.

A lot to take in all at once

Beautiful prayers, will have to listen to the audiobook again to grasp even half of Charles ‘writing! Much to take in and absorb and is life changing if I allow these words of truth from the Bible to enter my very being. Praying that the Holy Spirit will enable me to become all that I’m chosen to become. This book is not for someone who is a “surface-Sunday Christian “, this is for the serious, die hard follower of Christ that is willing to suffer for Him at any cost.

Awesome book

This is one I need to listen to,more than once! I have listened to many of his books, so I was aware of his faith. This one was not easy, l’m sure, but he has definitely served as God’s vessel. I also enjoyed the musical ending. Bless you, Charles and your family and many others who supported you in this endeavor!

The good word

Really enjoyed the sport and prayers. I do not like bible thumpers or some the bigotry hidden in some interpretations with some out there. Enjoyed the book very much and most of the interpretations.

good storytelling

The author retells Jesus’s story in his own way.. He adds to the story of what he thinks happened in good will.

Amazing.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Every chapter challenged my thinking and brought me to a place of reflection.
I will definitely read this a few more times and listen for how God will use it to refine my walk with him.
