Summary

With the same depth, sensitivity, and emotion that has made his novels beloved to millions, Charles Martin helps us engage the fundamental principles of our faith in new and inspiring ways.

Years ago, Martin cracked open his Bible and began wrestling with a few fundamental questions. He asked, “What if every single word of Scripture is absolutely true and I can trust it? How do I respond? Something in me should change, but what? How?” This audiobook is the result of that exploration.

Writing as our guide, he uses a storyteller’s imagination to illuminate key moments from the Scriptures, primarily from the life and ministry of Jesus. In addition, Martin shares key moments from his own journey as a disciple - and bond-servant - of Christ and a mentor to others. The result is a striking exploration of truth that helps us not just think differently but live differently. Today.

Includes a song written by Charles Martin’s son, only available in the audiobook edition. Appendices that include topical verses from Scripture are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Moved to tears

I am an LDS woman and thought it would not be within what I could not accept. But Charles's way or telling the stories about the Savior are so tender and real. He has a way of saying what is in the scriptures and bringing a reality I have not experienced before. I listed to "We are all Bleeders " several times . I am so grateful for your extreme wisdom in knowing the scriptures.

Awesome book

This is one I need to listen to,more than once! I have listened to many of his books, so I was aware of his faith. This one was not easy, l’m sure, but he has definitely served as God’s vessel. I also enjoyed the musical ending. Bless you, Charles and your family and many others who supported you in this endeavor!

The good word

Really enjoyed the sport and prayers. I do not like bible thumpers or some the bigotry hidden in some interpretations with some out there. Enjoyed the book very much and most of the interpretations.

Wow, convicting and inspiring!

I really enjoyed the prayers, as a Dad the story in the tractor supply parking lot kicked my butt! I truly appreciate the stories of the Bible being brought to life!

So good

I’ve listened and will listen again. Plus I bought the book for myself to go more In depth and a copy to pass on to a friend. “If it’s true” solidifies the Bible even more for me and challenges who I am in Christ and my responsibility as a Jesus follower. I loved hearing Charles Martin’s heart and want everyone I know to hear it and read it.

Wow! A profound help and enlightenment to love.

I really struggle to navigate the unlovable, and to figure out how to “love my enemies.”
I will listen to this over and over again.
I love the way Charles wrote this in a story-telling way of his own journey, and that it is saturated (and I mean saturated!) with God’s word pointing us to Christ and His teaching. This book was divinely sent to me by the Father and is anointed. Thank you for obediently serving him Charles Martin. You have greatly ministered to me and serve the body of Christ well here.

good storytelling

The author retells Jesus’s story in his own way.. He adds to the story of what he thinks happened in good will.

3rd time through And still picking up unique insig

I do a lot of driving for my business and by default I have a lot of windshield time. This book presents The word of God In a Conversational Way as you're the writer is walking through the Jesus story but dealing with contemporary issues of our day. It is a no holds barred, Tough love conversation it gets beyond Seeker friendly lukewarm gospel, And lovinglyPokes at our most sensitive, buried sends and fears. Highly recommend!
