In metaphor-rich prose, Jakes shares the lessons on life and love that his mother taught him. Jakes is a televangelist, the pastor of a nondenominational mega-church in Texas, and he doesn't shrink from preaching here, though, fortunately, most of his opinions are commonsense wisdoms, spoken with encouragement and backed by interesting examples from his own life. Each chapter ends with a mother's secret prayer and "homework for the heart," both intended to strengthen faith and spirituality. Richard Allen narrates with a zeal that quickly makes listeners think he IS Jakes. The dramatic rise and fall of his voice and the energy of his presentation will have them believing he's in front of a podium rather than a microphone.
