Raises many good questions but doesn't go deep enough. But it is worth listening too.

A comprehensive case for Christianity. A pleasure to listen to. Well researched and yet it doesn't feel overly technical.

This considered one of the greatest novels of all time. I found it a little hard to follow at times but it had some captivating moments. Audible needs to add chapter titles.

Historically informative on Jewish relations in the first century AD (though can feel a little dry and without knowing the context it can be hard to follow). Audible needs to add chapter titles.

A window into a Christian's view of US politics

Has some insights into how a particular evangelical views US politics in about 2010. Feels a little dated now. While having strong opinions isn't necessarily bad, it feels like some of the matters will be polarizing. Grudem argues that the Bible generally is closer to the right wing (though at times he disagrees with the right as well). Audible needs to add chapter titles. This feels a little long for an audio book and feels better suited as a reference work.

Has a good balance of enough detail and yet not too long. Seemed fair in its treatment of matters. audible needs to add titles for each chapter.

Well read. Although at 50hrs this better suited to a physical reference book to consult individual sections than listening to the whole audiobook (for instance the proof texting, listing of scripture references doesn't lend itself to an audiobook). Lots of good insights a Christian from any tradition should be able to appreciate. That being said Frame didn't always seem fair in representing other views. For instance, in his definition of libertarian freewill (see the Standford encyclopaedia for a fair treatment). Nevertheless, Frame has put a lot of good work into this, and there is much to learn from it, one can only hope for an updated edition to address some of the weaknesses.

I found the section on what is reformed theology best. The appendix that covers Molinism, only addresses Bruce Ware and isn't entirely accurate (since there are other varieties of Molinism. Olson conflates libertarian free will with the principal of alternative possibilities.
