Narration is perfect

I decided to give this book a try after hearing it mentioned by John Piper in his book, "Desiring God" and reading exerpts on John Piper's website.

I sampled the audio first before I made my purchase and after listening to Nick Cordileone's narration, I knew I had to hear to the whole thing. Nick Cordileone's vocal pitch, pacing and expression are perfect for this book. I can't imagine David Brainerd himself doing a better job. Also, the quality of the recording is extremely good, in spite of the occasional instance of repetition.

Listening to this book has changed my life. The passion young David Brainerd expressed in his journal writings of his love for God and his desire to live his life for the glory of God is profound and awe-inspiring. If the longing of your heart is to know God more deeply, you can't go wrong with this book.
