Publisher's Summary

What if you woke up one morning and the darkest parts of yourself were gone?
Toren Daniels vanished eight months back, and his wife and kids have moved on - with more than a little relief. Toren was a good man but carried a raging temper that often exploded without warning. So when he shows up on their doorstep out of the blue, they're shocked to see him alive. But more shocked to see he's changed. Radically. 
His anger is gone. He's oddly patient. Kind. Fun. The man he always wanted to be. Toren has no clue where he's been but knows he's been utterly transformed. He focuses on three things: Finding out where he's been. Finding out how it happened. And winning back his family. 
But then shards of his old self start to rise from deep inside - like the man kicked out of the NFL for his fury - and Toren must face the supreme battle of his life. 
In this fresh take on the classic Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, James L. Rubart explores the war between the good and evil within each of us - and one man’s only chance to overcome the greatest divide of the soul.

Critic Reviews

"With plenty of twists and turns to keep the pages turning, The Man He Never Was expertly explores the difference between knowing and experiencing, and asks the important question: what might happen if we could see the person in the mirror as God does?" (Katie Ganshert, award-winning author of Life After)

Great story. Good Narration. Poor Production.

Great story.
Good Narration.
Story was read by the author.
Audio quality is not nearly as good on this book as with previous books. There's a thin, almost echoing sound to the recording. At least one chapter wasn't edited at all and contains an outburst by the author referencing typos in the script and has several sentences repeated.
Hopefully these issues are corrected in future books.
I'm looking forward to the next book...

Somewhat Dissapointing

I generally enjoy James Rubart`s advevtures--a lot. I ordered "The Man He Never Was" on Kindle with Audible narration. It should never have been released. Chapter 31, in particular, was so fraught with do-overs, repetition of words and lines, and the authors complaints about typos (which should have been edited out), that listening became annoyingly painful. It was NOT READY FOR RELEASE. Even fans of the author`s work are likely to feel that money or credits were not well-spent.

The story was interesting. I must add that much. Notwithstanding, it was not good enough to rescue this from being an Audible flop. Hopefully, the producers and editors will clean this up and re-release it. In the meantime, a refund to those who purchased this release would be good business practice.

Good book. Very useful and easy to relate to.

I think we are all in the same boat, some more than others. I know that ultimately we can not live our life on our own and who better to share it with than Christ.

And James has made me feel better about writing my own book. When you have listened to the whole book one chapter will stand out, but not for the reason you might think.

Happy listening
