Romans 1-7 For You Audiobook Review

Romans 1-7 for youThis is my personal review on Romans 1-7 For You audiobook by Timothy Keller, as part of christianaudio reviewer program

Just like Judges For You, Timothy Keller writes another great exposition of the book of Romans to you. The book is richer in theology (well, it is based on the book of Romans, after all) compared to Judges For You but it should serve only as an “appetizer” for you to read the whole book of Romans in the bible and study them yourselves.

Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart Audiobook Review

salvationThis is my personal review on Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart audiobook by J.D Greear, as part of christianaudio reviewer program

The title of the book caught me at first glimpse. It sounds controversial and there were funny questions going into my head the moment I saw the title.

The book mainly focuses on giving the assurance of salvation. How do you really know that you are saved? If it’s true that “once saved, always saved”, then why some of us doubt our salvation?

Judges for you review

This is my personal review on Judges For You audiobook by Andy Stanley, as part of christianaudio reviewer program

This audiobook is actually 6.7 hours long but thankfully, each minute of the audiobook is worth listening to, thanks to the awesome writer, Timothy J Keller, and also the narrator Maurice England.

The book “Judges for you”, as the title suggests, takes a deeper (and overview) look of the Book of Judges in the Bible. Whether you have read the Book of Judges in the Bible or not, this is a great book to hear. It covers the whole chapters but at the same time, Timothy Keller also adds a lot of exposition and reflection questions.

This is my personal review on Enemies of the Heart audiobook by Andy Stanley, as part of christianaudio reviewer program

enemies of the heartThis is one of the books that I’d trully recommend for others to read (or listen to). Enemies of the Heart strikes deep and makes us to truly identify the most core foundation of what we say and what we do, our heart.

Have you ever wondered what’s your heart condtion at the moment? No, not the physical one. Have you ever wondered why certain nasty things came out from your mouth? Or  an action that you did in the past that left you regretting for the whole life? Ask your heart – it’s the place to answer all of your questions.

Knowing God by J.I. Packer

Standard

This is my personal review on Knowing God audiobook by J.I Packer, as part of christianaudio reviewer program

knowing GodKnowing God is a book by J.I Packer that focuses on explaining the true God in biblical manner. Often in this modern world, our concept about God has diminished or simply been clouded by current trends, society, culture, and many more.

Some people find it hard nowadays to see the true God such as His real characters and what He approves and disapproves. Some even believe they have known God really well and close, where in fact, they haven’t.

J.I Packer explains from the Bible about God and He covers almost everything you can imagine about God – such as His Grace, His Wrath, His Sovereignity, and many more.

It’s a good book for new Christians but also a good book for Christians in general. Knowing God in practice is of course not as easy as it may sound. Even with 9.5 hours long, this audiobook cannot simply cover everything about God and we can never uncover 100% about God as He is simply way beyond our knowledge and brain to understand. However, this book does cover many foundational doctrines about God and in biblical truth. There are a few minor interpertations that I disagree but they are pretty minor (such as the author mentioning that it was a volcanic erruption that hit Sodom and Gomorrah – which was never mentioned directly in the Bible, etc).

The audiobook is narrated by Simon Vance and in general, being read wonderfully. It can be monotonous at times, but this is not a “story telling” kind of book, so it’s understandable. The book is unfortunately, not the type of book you can just read or listen to in one whole swoop as there are lots of things to grasp slowly. It’s then recommended to read/listen to this book by chunks and ponder them before you continue on to the next chapters.

The Shelter of God’s Promises by Sheila Walsh

Shelter of God PromisesThis is my personal review on The Shelter of God’s Promises audiobook by Sheila Walsh, as part of christianaudio reviewer program.

At some point in our journey with God, we’d be challenged to having tough times and wondered “Where is God?” or “Does He care?” or “What should I do, God?”. Times like these are the times when we need to look back at our own faith and to His Word. Do you know that there are over than 3000 promises God made in the Bible? Do you know that whatever you’ve been through right now, God has made a promise to you to never leave you? In this book, Sheila Walsh uncovers God’s promises to His people (i.e you and me) and why we should be focusing on Him instead of our own problems and harshness of life.

Radical DiscipleThis is my personal review on The Radical Disciple by John Stott audiobook, as part of christianaudio reviewer program.

As a Christian (or Christ’s disciple), often we were left wondering – how can we be a good disciple of Christ? The obvious one is of course, to be conformed to His likeness but then again, there is another question emerged: how radical should we be?

The book is meant to uncover these “more things to do if you want to be a serious disciple of Christ” but unfortunately, I find it quite dry and not enough “radical” statements from John.
