Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author and pastor Dr. John MacArthur reveals one crucial word that revolutionizes what it means to follow Jesus.
Throughout the Bible, followers of Jesus are commanded to submit to Him as their King. They are told to obey and follow, faithfully and without hesitation. Every time Christians utter the word Lord, they make a subtle yet profound declaration - that God is their Master and that they belong to Him. In fact, the Bible describes believers as His slaves. They have been bought with a price and now live for Christ as a people for His own possession.
But go into most churches today, even flip through most Bible translations, and you won’t see or hear the word slave anywhere. That’s because it has been lost in translation. In this gripping book, Dr. John MacArthur uses deep Bible teaching and historical evaluation to expertly uncover the one forgotten word that restores the Bible’s definition of true Christian freedom.

What I expect from MacArthur

The basic premise of the book, that the word slave is somewhat mistranslated as servant is nothing new. But it does present a good background and explanation of what slave and slavery meant back in the day the bible was written.

The book also is used as a platform for MacArthur to make the case for Calvinism and it does present the case for the concept of Calvin’s TULIP very well and is backed up with appropriate bible verses etc. The argument for/against Calvinism is old and interesting and certainly one that Christians can have without coming to blows. I can appreciate this books presentation on the idea.

Narration Poor

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

Bottom line: I like John MacArthur as a public speaker. His written material is very good as is his public ministry. However, he is not a narrator for audio books. A good narrator makes or breaks an audio book. The material in the book was very much affected by this. I'm sure there's more good material in his book but I couldn't listen past the second chapter. I endured the first chapter. I would have been better served buying a hard-copy of the book. This should have been narrated by a pro like Grover Gardner.

John's reading of his own book was stilted and lacked the deep insightful tone of someone like Grover Gardner (I'm amazed at Gardner's ability). One might say - how can this be, after all John's reading his own book? But the reality is his style is suited for public speaking and he cannot transfer over from his public speaking style that has no doubt developed over many years. He's a gifted public speaker -- not an audio book narrator. Again, if this were narrated by Grover Gardner or someone similar I suspect I'd have gone over the book several times by now. It tried to focus on the material but the reading was painful ---- sorry John, you're a great Christian and your ministry is top-notch but.....
