TEACH US TO WANT Longing, Ambition and the Life of Faith

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Karyn O'Bryant

Philosophy & Religion • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

In this audiobook on human desires, the author intersperses extensive doses of Christian logic with autobiographical anecdotes of her own experiences with errant desires. Her thesis that desires are God given and, therefore, have the potential for good is expertly handled by narrator Karyn O’Bryant. As the mother of five children, Michel has had her share of errant desires. O’Bryant injects the right amount of sincerity into Michel’s imagery to give listeners a clear picture of her life choices and brushes with wrong-thinking desire. Her inflections and dramatic pauses help strengthen Michel’s arguments for inviting God into the process of handling desires. To interpret religious-based apologies is difficult, and O’Bryant’s energy and enthusiasm enhance this production. E.E.S.
