Hard to listen to in the car.
This would be better to read in print. This is not something to listen to while you are driving. The reader does not have the expressive softness to his voice like NT Wright does. The reading is stiff.

An academic resource
NT Wright does an excellent job of offering a history of how the authority of the Bible as God's Word to man has been viewed throughout the centuries since the Apostles. He does use some of the time to push his theological views as being completely acceptable given this historical approach to the subject.

Ultimately, this book would be better read in print as the reader will definitely want to research what has been written though listening to it will enable you with familiarity to the subject at hand.
