Publisher's Summary

Follow God's process for growth and learn how you can benefit from life's challenging experiences with this audiobook by best-selling inspirational author T.D. Jakes.

In this insightful audiobook, number one New York Times best-selling author T.D. Jakes wrestles with the age-old questions: Why do the righteous suffer? Where is God in all the injustice?

In his most personal offering yet, Bishop Jakes tells crushing stories from his own journey - the painful experience of learning his young teenage daughter was pregnant, the agony of watching his mother succumb to Alzheimer's, and the shock and helplessness he felt when his son had a heart attack.

Bishop Jakes wants to encourage you that God uses difficult, crushing experiences to prepare you for unexpected blessings. If you are faithful through suffering, you will be surprised by God's joy, comforted by his peace, and fulfilled with his purpose.

Crushing will inspire you to have hope, even in your most difficult moments. If you trust in God and lean on him during setbacks, he will lead you through.

Not so good

The book is not a true reflection of the great mind that is Bishop Jakes. Perhaps the least impressive of all his books that I have read. The reader wasn’t helping matters either. I struggled to finish reading and that has never happened when I read Bishop Jake’s books.

The narrator is emotionless

I have been anticipating this book for a while now, but was unimpressed by the narrator. This is a powerful book and the voice behind it needs to be powerful also. Instead I find that it is robotic sounding. Would have loved for Bishop Jakes to narrate! I hope that in the future there is better audio options because the voice is just lifeless. Other than that AMAZING BOOK SO FAR !

The Voice

The content is excellent but it is not Bishop Jake's voice. His voice is anointed and without it, the narrative is hard to feel and follow. I am very disappointed in the fact that it is a different voice. It felt like a boring lecture instead of a sermonic story.

great read

The grape doesn't understand the vine... it just rests in it... That was worth the whole book right there💯

Here's one more... The vintage is only as good as the wait... #boom.

Ok, last one... I've seen a lot of people in the world I've admired, but nobody I'd rather emulate because..., they have no wine...👀

That last one wasn't in the book (actually, it was in his sermon "Marriage at Cana" preceding the release)... BUT IT SHOULD'VE BEEN IN THE BOOK BISHOP😂. Great Job👍👍👍👍👍

Disappointed

I was really looking forward to hearing TD Jakes voice. The reader does not have the same power that connects to the inner man as Bishop Jakes.

Eye opener of different perspective

Many time during a crushing I thought I am going through a punishment but Bishop show that the crushing is to make me a better person so that I can then be a choicest wine to show the goodness of God through my difficult times! Thank you Bishop!

The crushing is not the end!

What an amazing spirit filled book! It is not a coincidence that I was able to listen to the audio version of this book while going through this very season. Everything about this book gave me clarity to understanding the season I’m in and peace to my spirit. Bishop Jakes- you will never know the impact you’ve had on my life through the sermons you’ve preached and the books I’ve read that you’ve written. Thank you for answering the call and teaching me how to get through the valleys of my journey. My hope has been renewed!!

Great book, poor naration<br />

This is very inspirational, however the narrator does not do this book justice. It would have been amazing if TD Jakes himself narrated the book.

Wrong Narrator

I couldn't finish it because the voice didn't match the image of Bishop Jake's in my head telling the story.
