What made the experience of listening to Forgiving God the most enjoyable?
The story this book tells is quite moving in itself: a young mother grapples with her faith after her newborn son has health issues that will lead to a very different sort of life for him than she expected. But the author is also a professional philosopher, and so she makes sense of her experiences through some really rich philosophical reflection. It's the best kind of thinking, sparked by and responsive to deeply significant real-life issues -- and it makes for a really powerful listening experience, one that will captivate not only memoir fans but also thoughtful religious people and everyone interested in how worldviews can be relevant for everyday living in the face of hardship or uncertainty.
Have you listened to any of Hilary Yancey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yancey reads her audiobook quite well, bringing out the moving and thoughtful parts, as well as some subtly wry or even funny ones, in such a way as to evoke in the listener a powerful personal connection with her story. I'm sure the book is moving in print as well, but I'd definitely recommend the audio version.
