This was my first audio book in 15 years. I had tried a fiction audio book years ago but couldn't drive and keep up with the plot at the same time. Thankfully, this book was a subject that I could listen to like a conversation and I did indeed listen to it while I was driving, this time without any difficulty.
At first I was a little disappointed with Philip Yancey's narration of the book because it was often droning and monotonous, but I tried to concentrate instead on the message that was being delivered and pretend that I was reading the words he was saying.
While I thought that Yancey may have inserted himself too much into the stories, talking about his automobile accident and such, I did very much enjoy his interviews with the lay ministers in China and with the professional sex workers in Wisconsin. These interviews and Yancy's journalistic approach were the best aspects of this audio book for me. They were real. They were gritty. They clearly reflected the hope that these people found in Christ and how they've in turn helped other people find a relationship with Christ. How inspiring! I wanted to cry when I heard how the girl who was shot in the Columbine High School shooting reached out to the people in the Virginia Tech shooting.
This is a good audio book to listen to in order to gain a perspective on just how great is our God and truly answers the question of what good God can do in our lives.
