Why not use the table of contents from the print version and tie it to the audio?
The "chapters" for the audio are not related to the table of contents.
It would be MUCH easier to refer back to previous topics.
This applies to many/all Audible books.

I am a huge fan of Diarmaid MacCulloch and got this audio book as a supplement to reading the actual book. The narrator makes this impossible. She's the worse. Audible could not have gotten a worse voice to read this awesome work.
The book itself is an incredible tome, mixing an encyclopedic study of the reformation with great storytelling.
