[Audiobook] “Doctrine” by Mark Driscoll & Gerry Breshears

Doctrine: What Christians Should Believe, by Mark Driscoll and Gerry Breshears, is a pretty sweet book. I bought it, but haven’t read it. The audiobook, narrated by Sean Runnette, is not so sweet. While the traditional audiobook style may perk the interest of many and keep the listener going, I found myself dazing, which is definitely not a good thing if you are driving. I tried listening on my bluetooth headset while at the gym, and got a migraine. I couldn’t do it…the narrator’s voice is simply flat, monotone, computerized, and unimpressive. There’s no emotion, drive, or creativity. It is the traditional audiobook style, lacking the incredible coolness associate with SCL, David Crowder, and coffee shops. This is the Starbucks of the espresso world – corporate, plain, and accustomed. I’m a local kind of guy. It doesn’t seem to fit Driscoll’s groove.
