Publisher's Summary

The Cure gives the diagnosis of this century's religious obsession with sin-management. It has poisoned the Church, obscuring the Original Good News and sending millions away-wounded, angry and cynical, from nearly any organized expression of faith. The Cure offers an authentic experience in Christ that frees some from a self-rewarded righteousness, and others from a beaten down striving for a righteousness they can never seem to attain. The Cure infuses a relational theology of grace and identity, which alone can heal, free and create sustainable, genuine, loving, life-giving communities.

Needed a proper narrator

Would you consider the audio edition of The Cure: What If God Isn't Who You Think He Is and Neither Are You? to be better than the print version?

The narrator's voice is very jarring and you end up listening to it and her extreme annunciations instead of what she's saying. Clearly she was the wrong choice for this book. This book needed a calm, sage-type that understood the subject matter and took the time to read it properly. This narrator has so much energy, sounds like a computer spitting out words, and speaks so fast -- she does not suit the subject matter whatsoever. She does the book a great disservice, sadly. Her 'alternate' character voice is so nasally and robot-like ~~ it belongs in a children's or fantasy book. It was supposed to belong to a mentor-like character, yet it was hard not to laugh while listening to it. Completely unfortunate.

Otherwise, this is a great, concise book that will likely be extremely illuminating to most who read it. I'm contemplating purchasing it in non-audible form because the content is so good, but I won't because I'll never read it. Considering this book is only a few hours long, the authors should have the book re-published with a new narrator. That I would purchase and listen to often. This is important information, it highlights perspectives that actually can change lives very quickly. Sadly, it took all of my willpower to finish listening to it AND to glean the meaning/nature of what was being said, due to the narrator.

Just didn't enjoy it -had to force myself to finish

Hate to criticize anyones works but between the strange narration ( a girl reading a book written by a male author with mixes of her trying to imitate other male characters in the story well it took me several chapters to stop laughing at it) note: she was a very clear reader

As far as content it was the same stuff I have heard in his other book just re-done. It was in story form which can be a great way to teach unless the content lacks any real connection with real life. Well with that said aside from a few nuggets of wisdom ( like having a great baked potato served with a really tough steak) I would not recommend it.
