Publisher's Summary

How can we believe and be transformed by the gospel? Once we understand that the gospel is not merely good news but explosive, life-changing news, we will never be the same again. And in response to God's work in our lives, what part can we play in recreating the world for his good plan? In this powerful audiobook, Fr. John Riccardo helps us to see the world through God's lens, with a clear vision of the future.

A blessedly manly spiritual book

It is worth your time. It is an easy read. It is very relatable. And there is something that anyone can relate to somewhere in the book. And for once nothing to foo-foo

Read This With Your Family!

This book transformed my vision of life as a wife, as a mother and a follower of Christ. It made my eyes open to why I have failed and what I need to do to be the change in my family’s life. Thanks just isn’t enough Fr Ricardo. Your mother and father’s stories were heartwarming. I hope to someday meet him. What a blessing he was to you and your family. He did it right. And you are living proof. Simply, thank you, Fr. Riccardo.

A simple and clear reminder.

I saw Father Riccardo on TV talking about this book. I got the audio version. It is so clear and down to earth. Any Christian, whatever label they use, can benefit from this return to a foundational understanding. It made me feel like I was having a prodigal son experience.

What an awesome book!!!

AMAZING!!! What an extraordinary book! it is written in such an easy and inviting way - not "dumbed down" but approachable yet deep! Very insightful! I bought a paper copy so that I can go through it again and be able to highlight and write in the margins! Thank You Fr. Riccardo! I have already recommended this book to family and friends!

Truly spectacular News 🤩

Easy but compelling book, previous knowledge presented in a novel way that once heard cannot be denied. Glad to contemplate many of the author's ideas, some of which I'd never thought of, eg Jesus as ambush predator. WOW 😳
