Excellent book; destroyed by terrible narration.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
John Lennox tackles this thorny subject in his usual rigorous, thought-provoking style;.
He explains a difficult subject with clarity, without over-simplifying it.
How could the performance have been better?
Unfortunately, the narration does not do the book justice. The narration does not flow naturally; and many words are mispronounced beyond recognition - I had to rewind often in order to grasp the words being said. Also, many words are mispronounced in a way that completely changes the meaning of the sentence. For example - 'severely' is pronounced 'severally'; 'precedence' is pronounced as 'presidents'; and 'differ' is pronounced 'defer'. I listened in confusion to a passage about 'casual determinism' until I realised that Lennox actually meant 'causal determinism'. John Lennox may be causal, but he is rarely casual in his writing!
Any additional comments?
By the end of chapter 2 I gave up listening and bought the e-book. It's a great read (but unfortunately not so great to listen to!)

Narrator ruined a wonderful book
This narrator does such an amazingly terrible job that I feel sorry for the wonderful author, Dr. Lennox, for having his efforts poured down the drain by someone who mispronounces basic words and common names throughout. This narration is an embarrassment to the profession and ought to be re-recorded by someone with the ability and/or integrity to do this incredible work the justice it deserves.

Great book - lousy reading.
Who chooses the readers for these books? I know not everyone can be Simon Vance or Lloyd James, but I would think that conveying some sense of understanding the material should be a prerequisite.
More than once I thought the reading was computer generated; the nonsensical inflections and mispronunciations were so distracting it really ruins it for me. For a guy who likes to listen to books three or four times, it really takes away from the experience.
The book itself is outstanding. I love John Lennox and his ability to use reason and logic, which is both affirmed by and upholds scripture.
Determinism never made any sense to me - this book helped me move past what had been a real stumbling block.
