Dreadful rubbish - almost pantomime......but that's insulting pantomime. I bought this audiobook in the mistaken belief that it would be a fascinating discussion between two very famous people at the opposite ends of the generally accepted morality scale. All we get is two hours of drivel with silly accents about how horrible Hitler was. There was no sensible discussion and there was nothing of interest in this, the worst audiobook I have ever bought. Even the awful, "The Lotus and The Cross" is better than this (and that's saying something!)

I was annoyed by the overdone dramatization.

Would you try another book from Ravi Zacharias and/or various?
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
One. Men who only value power would never listen to a man who tries to appeal to his emotions and reason. 'Look what you've done Hitler, you've murdered thousands don't you feel horrible?!' He would have scoffed and said something like 'Then you'll be just another of the weak who have fallen dead at my glorious power.' And then put a bullet between his eyes. For men who value power, the only way to get through to them is to be more powerful than them. That's why we have the Justice system. That is why we bombed them mercilessly. Thats why Bonhoeffer was apart of the resistance to assassinate him. That's why Jesus comes in Revelation with wrath and a sword.
Another thing was the voice acting was really bad. The only voice i believed was the american in the prologue. The german accents were really fake sounding and you even chanced Hitler's voice actor after he commits suicide. And Jesus's voice sounded like some college kid that still had teenage angst. Nothing like the sound of rushing water both gentle and soothing yet powerful and authoritative.
And lastly some of the writing was just simply heavy handed. Like when the character's are saying what they're doing or where they are going. I know it's supposed to be a dialogue; and the reader can't see what the characters are doing unless the book tells them what's going on; but you could have done that with a narrator in the 3rd person like, 'Jesus then lead Hitler into a court room.' Or if you wanted to just use the dialogue you could have said it like this: 'Jesus: Step in to my court room Hitler.' Otherwise it just sounds really cheesy.
Would you be willing to try another one of various’s performances?
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Yes, the heavy handedness would not need to be there since i could physically see what the characters are doing. And if better actors played the part.
