I found this bundle to be well worth the money. The narrating was ok, because I like accurate pronunciation of words. Incorrect narration drives me crazy. Thanks for this Christian gift box, highly recommending this to my church members!

I have never been so disappointed in a purchase from Audible. First off, this is a recording of two essays, and does not contain the actual story of Gilgamesh. Further, while it claims to be a Christian interpretation, it includes very simplistic theological reasoning, even to the point of one time resorting to discussing stories of alien sightings and the Biblical text.
Beyond the disappointing content, the narrator sounded like a computer-generated voice, with strange intonation and phrasing of at most three words and often less. I thought maybe they'd let the author narrate his own book, but was shocked to see that they'd actually hired someone who read that poorly.
The production values were also laughable. At the end, there was a warning to not take any medical advice from the recording which made zero sense, because medical advice was one of the few things the author didn't speculate wildly about (again, see the aliens!) At one point they say that they aren't responsible for anything that might happen as a result of "any person reading or following the information in this book." I would agree with the author and publisher that you are listening at your own risk and you'd be better off not listening, or if you do, apply anything you learned with care and further research and careful reading of the Bible and the actual Gilgamesh epic.
I think there might be a lot for Christians to glean from Gilgamesh, but stay away from this poor effort.
