Comfort from Romans
I love Elyse Fitzpatrick & all her writing; I just did not like the voice of the woman reading; she was distracting I'm sorry to say.

Inspirational
Fitzpatrick opens the book with a quote from Martin Luther about the importance of the truths contained within the book of Romans, and that the book is so important that it should be our daily bread of our souls. It is with this beginning that she points to how often she needs to hear the Gospel, and how quickly she loses sight of Him and focuses on Facebook instead. The world is tugging at us in so many different directions, and it can be easy to lose sight of what's truly important. Fitzpatrick asserts that when she fails to read the Gospel, she hungers spiritually. Despite this hunger, she gets distracted and despairs out of hunger as a result of filling her soul with things other than HaShem.

Gilbert's narration has always been a mark of excellence, and this endeavor is no different. Gilbert illuminates the text and gives our ears the inflection and understanding they need to hear the author's truest intent. Poetic and spaced, Gilbert's reading of the book allows the listener to tune in and sit back. Perhaps the only struggle with the narration is that it requires one to focus intently on the subject matter, but that is not a fault of the narrator, as the content is one of focus.

Not best for background audio while driving, this audiobook fits a Sunday afternoon while leaning back in a chair on the patio, sweet tea and Bible in hand as the birds chirp in the distance. Yes, it's that kind of book. That kind of book precisely.

The Gospel In Simple Form
Comforts from Romans by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick is a detailed yet easy to understand daily devotional about the Gospel and everything related to it as reflected in the book of Romans. It presents the gospel in easy to understand portions intended to be listened to and mediated on one a day for 31 days.

Each chapter focuses on a portion of scripture from Romans and describes in detail how it relates to the overall gospel and applications for believers today. I found it very easy to understand and I learn quite a lot about the book even after reading through it many times over the years.

The narration was very good as usual. I have heard audio book from Tavia before and she never fails to deliver quality audio and makes it a joy to listen.

This book would be great for any believer who wants to learn more about the gospel but doesn't want to spend years studying the book of Romans by themselves. It would also be a great introduction to new believers or people who are wondering about the gospel.

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.
