Jesus, The Perfect Example Of Love
Love Walked Among Us by Paul E. Miller had the potential to be a reasonably good book but regrettably the narration severely let it down, which is discussed in great detail later. The actual content of the book focuses on the gospel accounts of Jesus' earthly ministry and the love he showed to everyone he met.

The narration problems really wrecked this book for me but I did get some good revelations out of it regarding Jesus not separating his love and compassion from his power. He was always moved with compassion and then reached out with power. He does raise some good points and covers the aspects of Jesus' love for people in great detail.

The narrator was unfortunately really horrible, probably the worst I have heard. There are stumbles, throat clearing and numerous other very distracting vocal tics and mistakes that really take away from the message. In an age where you can easily re-record audio until you get it right, it seems amazing that someone didn't get the author to re-do the recording because it is really bad. This is the problem with the author reading the book, they are often not professionals and really restrict their message by poor communication.

This book would be great for people looking to completely understand the love that Jesus Christ showed during His earthly mission and how we should be loving with God and others.

One of the worst AUDIO BOOK narrations I've ever heard
Love Walked Among Us is a re-release that was originally published in 2001. Miller has become quite popular lately thanks to his recent books A Praying Life and A Loving Life. This is your chance to become familiar with another work of his that hasn’t gotten as much press because it came out before he became a bestseller.

Based on content alone, this book offers insightful reflection on the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ love. Miller is engaging and very personal, discussing how Jesus’ example affected his relationships at home with his wife and children, particularly his daughter with special needs. He then challenges his readers to be likewise affected by the example of Jesus in their interpersonal relationships. The book has an ecumenical feel, as Catholic figures (like Mother Theresa) are praised for loving like Jesus without any discussion of the theological differences between Roman Catholics and Protestants.

If you’re considering getting the book, do yourself a favor and avoid the audio book. The narration of this book is performed by the author, and I suspect this is his first time doing so. He reads quickly, not pausing at appropriate moments for dramatic effect like someone does when speaking naturally. He sometimes pauses mid-sentence, likely trying to find his place, and then zips from one sentence into the next with no break at the period. He stumbles over words, mispronounces then repeats words, and I am certain that he skipped a line a few times based on how it sounded. At one point his voice cracked because of a particularly emotion story. Although he has a pleasant voice, there’s a reason why some people earn a living as professional narrators. It’s not a Pinterest project that just anyone can do. Narration alone, this is probably the worst quality audio book I’ve listened to in a long time.

I received this audio book from christianaudio for the purpose of review.

The Love Just Wasn't There For Me
I hate to continue giving one star reviews, but oh my goodness, this is a terrible book! This author does not need to be reading his own book! This may be a good book, full of good information/subject matter, but it is just unbearable to listen to! And I love listening to audio books!

From the very start of the book, to the very end there is no change of tone in the reading. Where is this authors management team? There should have been a test run of his reading, or at the very least a review of him reading the first chapter. This author should never have been allowed to read the entire book! Is it really that expensive to hire a professional?

The author reads too fast. It's monotone and all mushed together. He reads without feeling. Like a child just learning to read, and reading that book for the first time out loud. He hurries through long sentences until he is out of breath by the end, not timing sentence rests with taking a breath. Fumbling over words way too many times.

For having written the book himself, he reads it as if it were the first time he's ever heard about the subject. Is it really that hard for an author to read a book out loud?

Does this author not hear how awful his book sounds? Is he really happy with the end result? Did he even go back and listen to the book after he was finished? Is this how he would read a book aloud to his child?

I am just as baffled that this author can read a book without any feeling whatsoever. He just sits there for 6 hours reading words. If he sat there reading a dictionary out loud it would sound exactly the same as this book. Just words.

I haven't even mentioned in detail the mistakes he makes, and this book is full of them! Wrong words read. Stutters. Hesitations. Restarts. Mispronounciations. You can hear the flipping of the pages. Every breath he takes. A huge sniff in chapter 27. He has a gravelly voice not good for narrating an audio book.

Because this book is so awful, for all of the reasons listed above, I was not able to understand the story. It was too much work to try to separate the sentences, reorganize the sentence, and then understand it while trying to process the story. It was a miserable piece of work that takes too much attention to get through. This is not a book you can relax and take in. You have to pay some serious attention to this book, and to every detail, to put the story together. It was very stressful.

I cannot recommend this book. Unfortunately I didn't get anything out of this book. Nothing I can apply to my daily life. I didn't come away with a wonderful happy feeling for having just wasted 6 hours of my life. I hesitated even writing this review, but it had to be said sometime.

I received this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion. Thanks for reading!
