Publisher's Summary

Filled with humor, wisdom and loving detail, the powerful story of Peter Marshall's life has touched the hearts and minds of millions of people. It's a story about love - the love between a dynamic man and his God, and the tender love between a man and the woman he married. It is also the gripping adventure of a poor Scottish immigrant who became chaplain of the United States Senate and one of the most revered men in America.
A Man Called Peter became the number-one best-seller when it was published in 1951, and around the world lives were changed by reading of the chaplain's remarkable faith.
In the foreword to this audiobook, Peter's son writes, "Even when [Dad's] words were preached 'secondhand'. . . in the movie version of A Man Called Peter, they had an amazing effect on people." Through Peter's story and the compelling sermons and prayers included in A Man Called Peter, you will discover insight into God, man, and life on earth and hereafter. You will also be encouraged by the realization that "if God can do so much for a man called Peter, he can do as much for you."

Great content, sad performance.

Would you try another book from Catherine Marshall and/or Renee Ertl?

Catherine Marshall was a gifted author. The story is extraordinary and inspirational. I have found it most uplifting. The narration by Renee Ertl, however, is sadly lacking. She has a pleasant voice, but mispronounces many words and has a halting, stilted style of reading. She constantly misinterprets phrases, putting odd emphasis and pauses where they don't belong. It interferes with the listening experience, causing you to focus on her style instead of this great biography of an exceptional man. You are constantly aware that she is reading, and not very well. It's a lot like an elementary school student struggling to read poetry without inflicting it with an unnatural sing-song. Too bad. I'll never get another audio book performed by her. Doesn't anyone listen to these things before they are released for distribution?

Where are the sermons?

I am not especially religious, but I first read this book as a teenager 50 years ago, and some of this man's words have stayed with me for half a century. Most of them are in the sermons at the end of the book. In this revised edition there is a long, boring introduction by Peter John Marshall (their son) in which he states that he replaced one of the sermons his mother selected with one of his own favorites. Again, where are the sermons? This book is NOT unabridged. I agree with other reviewers that the reader is awful, but surely a good narrator (preferable male because Marshall was male) could have been found to read the sermons of this man.

Worst Narration EVER!

What would have made A Man Called Peter better?

Being narrated by someone who can pronounce the Scottish place-names and words.

Would you be willing to try another one of Renee Ertl’s performances?

Never in a million years.

Any additional comments?

That "Lock LoMOND" mispronunciation described by another reviewer is so awful! Also the reference to "Bell-shill" instead of "Bells-hill". And "Edinbur" instead of Edinburgh. I could go on but I won't. The narrator ruins this book completely. A real tragedy.
