This is not a book but an extended pamphlet.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Fundamentalist Christians who believe god and the devil rule everything


Has If My Body Is a Temple, Then I Was a Megachurch turned you off from other books in this genre?

Definitely. There is no place in the Audible catalogue for these proselytizing diatribes - it's not literature or falls into entertainment genres.


Did Scott Davis do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

He read his own words with conviction and understands rhythm and tempo.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Annoyed at the fundamentalist rhetoric whilst advertising a diet management business despite no claims of benefit for his endorsement. As a diet book it suggests eat less, eat healthy foods and take responsibility for planning your daily diet. Astounding insights.


Any additional comments?

These sort of 'books' should not be part of the Audible offering. Would you offer books advocating racism, sexism or prejudice?

Wrong Audience

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. I thought I'd get diet information, and an inspiring story, interspersed with humor. Basically, he decided to go on a diet and did. And to top it off, it's not that funny.


Any additional comments?

The book is from more of a religious / church-going viewpoint than indicated in the description. Based on the title, I thought he'd be dealing with the subject with tongue-in-cheek sense of humor. You'd have to be pretty immersed in the church / evangelistic culture to get some of his jokes. Definitely not a good read for someone with more moderate religious beliefs. The evangelical speak gets in the way of the story, which was supposed to be: My Journey of Losing 132 Pounds with No Exercise.
