This is a marvelous story, a fictional novel based to some extent on reality, of the agonizing
journey of a conversion. Both as a book to read and as an audiobook it grips one's attention and one's interest.

This book helped me gain greater appreciation for Catholic faith and helped me gain greater understanding, compassion and patience for my protestant in-laws.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, not only is the plot of the story engaging but the theological issues it addresses and the emotion attached make this an informative and genuine story, good for Catholic or non-Catholic.
What other book might you compare How Firm a Foundation to, and why?
This is almost like a Scott Hahn theology book put into story form! Easy to understand, and the theology ingrained in the story does not detract or 'bog-down' the story - it only enhances the plot and makes it hit home harder.
What does Kevin O' Brien bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
He does a good job narrating lots of different characters and he did not distract me from the story...I didn't really even notice him (this, in my mind, is a sign of a good narrator).
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I am not a very emotional reader...but at times I smiled, and felt the emotion of the characters...and one time even let out an unexpected squeal of excitement.
Any additional comments?
Looking forward to listening to the sequel 'Pillar and Bulwark'.
