Why do we call him

...but don't do what he says?

I got this audio book with some reservation, fearing that it would be more of the conservative, yet insubstantial, rhetoric that fills Christian book stores. Not so. George Macdonald's message is simple, "Hear Jesus. Do what he says." And yet he says it convincingly and persuasively. This book should appeal to conservative and liberal Christians alike, because it doesn't spend time being dogmatic or undercutting dogma. Macdonald points us straight to Jesus.

The narrator is also excellent. You can tell he really spent time with these sermons, getting to know their inner workings. His reading brings out the emotion behind every word as if they were his own, without going overboard on drama.

New way of looking at Jesus

I was a little afraid to get this book because of what one reviewer posted but after listening to it, I am so glad I did. For the investment of five or so hours of my time, I gained nothing less than an entirely new perspective on Jesus. This is a life-changing book. This author truly knows Him, and wants to share Him with you. I count myself a Christian and am familiar with the Gospels, but I never knew this Jesus. There is no conservative or liberal slant to this book. This author doesn't discuss doctrine, he only cares about getting at the Truth, and he rejects doctrine that seems to him unworthy of a truly loving God.

As to the comment that the author is full of himself, and condescending to his listeners, I found no basis whatsoever for this charge. The reader is pretty good, although I wish he would have paused a little between chapters.

A magnificent book. Well worth your time.
