You get out what you put in

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, this is a useful guide for getting to grips with the Bible. Cuts through the mystery of textual criticism.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Not a work of fiction

What about Tom Parks’s performance did you like?

Clear and easy to listen to

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

No, in fact I kept skipping back. I have a paper copy also, which is perhaps better for this kind of book, i.e. one that needs a lot of application.

Any additional comments?

Good to listen to but I'd recommend getting a hard copy also. You need to put in a fair bit of work to get the best out of this book.

You need to want to know

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I wouldn't recommend this book, as it's quite dreary. Don't misunderstand me, I don't expect gripping action from it, just a bit more life.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Get all of it right. He stops, trips on his words, and coughs at one point.

Did How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth inspire you to do anything?

Sleep.

Any additional comments?

Not really. I think I'm becoming depressed.

:-) Joking.
