Summary

New York Times best seller

Not one thing in your life is more important than figuring out how to live in the face of unspoken pain.

Ann Voskamp, the New York Times best-selling author of One Thousand Gifts, sits at the edge of her life and all of her own unspoken brokenness and asks: What if you really want to live abundantly before it's too late? What do you do if you really want to know abundant wholeness? This is the one begging question that’s behind every single aspect of our lives - and one that The Broken Way rises up to explore in the most unexpected ways. 

This one's for the lovers and the sufferers. For those whose hopes and dreams and love grew so large it broke their willing hearts. This one's for the busted ones who are ready to bust free, the ones ready to break molds, break chains, break measuring sticks, and break all this bad brokenness with an unlikely good brokenness. You could be one of the Beloved who is broken - and still let yourself be loved. 

You could be one of them, one who believes freedom can be found not only beyond the fear and pain but actually within it

You could discover and trust this broken way - the way to not be afraid of broken things.

Book is probably excellent but narration is awful

The book is probably amazing, I love Ann Voskamp but the narrator is painful to listen to. She has loud, sharp intakes of breath every 3 words. It is completely louder than her reading & doesn't give any more feeling to the narration but just distracts. I couldn't even get through the first chapter. Get the book on Kindle.

So disappointed

If you've ever heard Ann read her own writings or even speak, you won't be able to listen to this audible version. The narrator rips it to shreds. I couldn't even make it through the first chapter and I cringed the entire way.
Ann writes like liquid, silk poetry.
I'm sure the narrator did her best but Ann's work should only be read by her.

Over the top dramatically read

It was so over the top dramatically read that I was not able to listen to it. A shame because I suspect the content might have been quite good.

Life Changing

Ann Voskamp took me deep into the beliefs I held about brokenness. She has challenged the very core of the idea that we need to "heal" from our brokenness and instead challenges us to LIVE from our brokenness. In doing so, she also challenges the way we approach the brokenness we encounter in this world and in others. Jamie Paul's narration of this book added even more meaning to the words and the heart of Ann. I would recommend this book to anyone looking to discover more meaning and depth in this life we live.

Read the hard copy book only

The content of this book is wonderful so I plan to buy the tangible version. The audiobook suffers. I cannot get past the preachy voice to the content. I have tried to suffer through it because I love listening to books while I work. But the constant preachy tone and lack of sentence cadence is like listening to scratching on a chalkboard. The author is awesome, but please redo the audiobook.

Beautifully Broken

This is the best book ever! It's changed my life and how I view Christ. Absolutely worth a listen. Thank you Ann for sharing your brokenness.

Excellent, Humbling and Real

Few books keep my mind attentive and soaring to meet the reality of my Beloved Savior as Ann Voskamp book, The Broken Way, has. My heart rejoices at the heartbeat of communion and blessed ability God has entrusted Ann with words.

I highly recommend this book if you desire to take your Christianity from being nominal to phenomenal by the power of our gracious God. To GOD be ALL the GLORY

Disliked the narration

Honestly, I couldn’t get through the first chapter of this book because of the narration. The narrator takes deep, dramatic breaths that make it more about her voice than the content in my opinion. That made it hard to focus and ruined it for me. Will try to order the hardback. Disappointed.

Narration

The context of the book is great. The animation in the narrators voice was overwhelming for the first several chapters. I’m not sure if she toned it down a bit or I just got used to it but it seemed more tolerable for the remainder of the book. The content of the book was worth the perseverance to finish the book.
