Popular pastor John MacArthur narrates his own book, which may be a watershed study in contemporary evangelicalism. Looking at the Greek word “doulos,” translated as “slave,” MacArthur analyzes the idea that in biblical reality everyone is a slave—either to sin or to righteousness, that is, Christ. He demolishes our contemporary understanding of slavery in order to establish the biblical and historical perspective and show the importance of the doctrine of slavery. As one who specializes in explaining a literary text, in this case the Bible, MacArthur has the distinct delivery of a lecturer rather than a narrator. This is evident as he moves from chapter to chapter with hardly a pause. Regardless, the content makes this audiobook worthy listening. It will undoubtedly change the way evangelicals understand the idea that “Jesus is Lord.” T.D. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2011]
