Perhaps My Favorite Devotional

Would you listen to Grace Notes again? Why?

Yes, I would - and I plan to. :-)

What did you like best about this story?

I have used and reviewed many Christian daily devotionals (of which, there are painfully few available in audio format). This has become one of my two or three favorites. The narrator's voice, while at first not sounding ideal for the subject matter, quickly grew on me (and I now wouldn't exchange it even if I could).Yancy's variety of insights - from world travel to historical accounts to encounters with unique ministries to childhood impressions to literary reviews - are all deftly related to growth in your walk with Christ. While not quoting Scripture much (the only thing keeping it from being my unqualified favorite devotional) it is consistent with Biblical truth. If you listen to each day's devotional on your way to work or into your day, you will be very, very satisfied with this audio book.

What does Maurice England bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He grows on you quickly. I was not initially elated with his voice as narrator - yet still got the book because: 1) I'm a fan of Yancy's writing; and 2) There are surprisingly few Christian devotionals in audio book format. Within just a few days I grew familiar with Mr. England's distinct voice, and now feel that it is perfect for this devotional book. Well done, sir!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would enjoy that - if time ever presented itself in such generous portions - yet this is a daily devotional. In just three or four minutes a day, Yancy contributes an impressive amount of insight and unique perspective.

Any additional comments?

Get it! :-) This is one of the best credits I've even spent!

5 stars for the book - only 3 for the recording

The book itself is a fantastic anthology of Philip Yancey's writing, and gives you some real thinking and talking points.

However, I have only given it 3 stars as the audiobook itself is so difficult to find your way around: dates are not announced at the start of each chapter, so you have to listen to a whole day's reading before you can find out if that's the date you want - when you hear the date of the next day's reading.
