Where does Evangelical Catholicism rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I don't give many 5 stars because I want that reserved for books that changed my life. This is one of them.
I had never heard the term Evangelical Catholicism until I found this book. George Weigel describes the Catholic life I have tried to live since joining in 1990.

Brilliant examination of the landscape of the church and where hope lay to fulfill it's mission of making disciples of all!
I agree with a lot of what George Weigel has to say. That is not the reason for my negative review.
However, by about half-way through the book it becomes increasingly clear that "deep reform" means "what George Weigel likes". And at some point he shifts from the descriptive to the prescriptive. This book might hurt "evangelical Catholicism" by it's tone.
Also, David Cochran Heath, while clear, is very boring to listen to, and often puts the emphasis on the wrong part of a long sentence, as if he hadn't read it before, or doesn't know what it means. And, personally, I can't stop thinking of him as the narrator of the ESV Bible.
Think this book was helpful in getting me to think about my faith and put things into prospective.
