What made the experience of listening to Garden City the most enjoyable?
The author is very eloquent and for the most part, seamless in his transitions and verbosity. Listening to the book is highly instructive and motivating. I couldn't help listening to it, even for a moments drive to pick up some milk from Safeway.
What other book might you compare Garden City to and why?
There really is not another book on the market like this one. It's straightforward, affirming, and refreshing. I did hear a sermon series identical to this at Salem Alliance Church a couple years back, but loved the rich depth Comer goes into it.
What does John Mark Comer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I think listening to an author read their own material offers more depth and connection. I would have missed spots here and there just reading the book on my own. Comer's moments of emphasis, encouragement, and wit are 3/4's there without hearing his personality through the audio recording.
Any additional comments?
The only thing I was bummed about was vocal citations for references. Comer will state, "One of my favorite Hebrew scholars..." or, "an amazing, life-changing book I read said...". These are just a couple of a heaping handful of moments in the book. He cites at moments but not thoroughly. Reading the book, he probably cites them properly, as I'm sure Zondervan requires. Just wish he did in the audiobook for my further reading, even just the name of that Sabbath book, scholars, authors, etc.

This was truly inspiring and releasing. It allowed to really take a look at my own life and revaluate it. Clear, logical, totally biblical and positive
gives a better understanding on our duty and blessing to work, helps us see that God appreciates our labour even if our boss doesn't!!
I also prefer it when it's read by the author!
