Publisher's Summary

Recovering Redemption. What does it mean? Recovering: Getting back, restoring. Redemption: God’s plan of salvation, the gospel. Because we have a tendency to drift from the gospel, we must be reoriented back to the gospel. We must recover a right understanding and application of the gospel. We must see that the gospel is the fuel for salvation and sanctification and the panacea to fix all things. The heart of the problem is the problem of the heart. The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? Jeremiah 17:9 I can’t. God can. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5 God meets you where you are. But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

Matt Chandler should have narrated it.

Overall, this was a good book. There’s a lot of substance in it and in the sentences that were used by the authors.

I may have a biased opinion because I listen to Matt Chandler’s sermons on podcast, but I think that he could have read it to us so much better to put the emphasis on the right words and so that it would flow with passion.

The beginning was read more like a story I find, which I found was a bit off but the tone, in my opinion, should be somewhat of a confident, commanding, and convicting.

I noticed a significant change around the second half of the book where the narration style picked up more with passion and conviction and the narration pace was slightly faster which resonated better with the way the book was written.

The content is great and really helpful to living like a disciple and becoming more Christ-like and a big focus on eliminating worries. I’d like to have it in hard copy to be able to highlight some of the memory verses that were given away.

A Book I'd Read Again and Again!

This book is a farely easy read yet has much depth. I not only enjoyed the content but found myself being reminded of how and why I am to LOVE and interact with my brothers and sisters in Christ. I found myself and encouraged all the more in my walk. Chapters 10 on through the very last page was so encouraging and insightful. Chapters 11 and 12, I probably listened to it about three or four times. Points that I walked away with:
"Marks of a mature Christians is to forgive and absorb any offenses thrown our way and to allow any rebuttals or retaliation to fall peaceably to the ground."(paraphrasing)
"In Christ ALL relationships issues are reconcilable"(very much paraphrasing)
There are many more I could paraphrase. But I won't. My husband enjoyed what he heard and would ask, "Who'd you say wrote this? This is good stuff!"
I DO like the structure of the book. I was given the HOWs throughout majority of the book couple with some WHYs. And then, at the VERY end, was given the Overall WHY! We were Saved, Called and Sent because He has and is Redeeming Us.

Once last thing. Paul Michael did an outstanding job narrating this book. He captured the essence and personality of Matt Chandler! At times he had me laughing out loud!

Fantastic

I felt like, at every stage of the book, I had lived out or experienced what they were speaking about. It was real, down to earth and enormously helpful.

I'd recommend it to anybody who wants to, had tried to or knows somebody who is trying to change something in their life for the better.

Thank you Matt Chandler and Michael Snetzer!

So Discouraging

What disappointed you about Recovering Redemption?

How do you take something so beautiful and make it so mundane? Ask Matt Chandler. Every time I think that there will be a glimpse of encouragement it is dashed away by a monotone narrator. It is so matter of fact with an Ecclesiastes vibe.I have tried to listen to this book on an off for about two weeks and just can't.

Would you ever listen to anything by Matt Chandler and Michael Snetzer again?

No

How could the performance have been better?
