The Nature Of God
Here Is Our God by Kathleen B. Nielson and D. A. Carson is a collection of message preached at a women's conference a couple of years ago that examine several famous expressions of God's glory in the Bible. Each chapter focuses on a different account such as Moses and the burning bush and the transfiguration in the gospels.

It is a thoroughly interesting, if albeit disjointed, collection of messages from a range of different preachers with different styles, which help to reveal the nature and glory of God through accounts in the Bible. I have read these passages many times before but some of the insights I got from this text were quite fascinating.

The narrators were very good as it is a mixture of both male and female authors, so the corresponding male and female narrators do a great job at conveying the tone of the messages. They are very easy to listen to and easy to follow as well.

The presentation of the nature of God outlined in this book would be great for both new and mature Christians alike as it covered the topic in such great detail while being simple to understand.

This audio book was gifted as a part of the christianaudio Reviewers Program in exchange for my unbiased review of this work. More information can be found about this and other Christian audio books at christianaudio.com.

A collection of expositions from many great authors/speakers
This is my personal review on Here is Our God audiobook by Kathleen B. Nielson & D. A. Carson, as part of christianaudio reviewer program

This book is a collection of messages from The Gospel Coalition 2012 National Women’s Conference. Great speakers that we all know well such as John Piper, Tim Keller, and D.A Carson, contribute as well in delivering their message about the glory of our God.

The book tackles the manifestation and glory of our God throughout the Bible (from the Old Testament to the New Testament): starting from God’s appearance through the burning bush to Moses to the end of days on the Book of Revelation. Each speaker gives an exposition to a particular passage that reveals a bit about our God’s revelation and tries to connect where the previous speaker has left off (from the previous series of passages).

However, since these messages are compilations from different speakers, they feel a bit disjointed and there are minor repetitions about some of the points here and there. At the same time, however, it’s good to hear from a different perspective and style of each author. There are great expositions about the passages from some of the speakers and the audiobook is also narrated really well.

At the end of each section, there are some reflection questions for you to ponder about. In many ways, you do have to try to find your own applications on the theology that you have just learned/listened to. It’s easy to get caught up on the knowledge that these expositions offer and simply listen to the next chapter if you are not careful.

I especially love the voice of the male narrator, George Sarris. He takes his time reading the texts and at times, always manages to get the tone correctly. It’s really enjoyable to listen, as if he is the author himself and knows exactly how to convey the message. Hope he can narrate more audiobooks at Christian Audio

Well Written and Very Uplifting
I received this book courtesy of Christian Audio for the purpose of writing a review.

Narrator Thoughts - I thought that both of the narrators did a wonderful job of making the chapters come alive. I liked how it would alternate between the two of them. It added a nice freshness and depth to the narration. Besides both of them have very melodic voices. It made it a very enjoyable listen.

Book Thoughts - I greatly admire and enjoying reading books from the authors that worked together to write this book. This work was beautifully put together and very refreshing. Each bringing their own thoughts and encouragement to the table was uplifting. So many of the chapters hit it home for me. The chapter on the Holy God was very good. How God is God. He is worthy of praise and worship. Yet he chose to reach out and love us. Through story and scripture the writers encourage you to live for God and dwell on Him. It's a wonderful listen for anyone.
