The writing of this book is a monumental achievement and I’m glad to say the content of the book surpasses expectations. It is a philosophical and introspective book. One that reflects deeply on the experience and treatment of asylum seekers. It provides a perspective rarely provided by mainstream media. It is a challenging and thought provoking listen. One that conjures an internal conflict between protecting Australian borders and preventing loss of life at sea vs our obligation and duty to look after those who seek refuge in our bountiful country. At times I felt ashamed and horrified of our governments treatment of asylum seekers in offshore processing And terrible condition these individuals had to endure. I am grateful to all those including the courage of this author to bring this book into reality. Whether you are right, centre or left of politics it is worth broadening your horizon by listening to this book. My only problem with this book is not the content but the production value. I wish as others have highlighted a single professional narrator was used. Don’t let this hold you back it is worth the listen. Just fast forward the first chapter.

I am a huge fan of the author and have been following his work on YouTube for a number of years therefore was excited to see this book in audible. The book had great ratings which further justified my purchase. However I am disappointed. I feel the messages of this book whilst potent are lost in excessive verbosity and tedious Christian themes which confuse and detract from the core goal.
