Got an impossible situation? The anxiety it brings can wake you in the middle of a needed night’s sleep and then stalk you in the middle of broad daylight. It can sneak up on you and cast a cloak of fear and concern over your shoulders that you can’t seem to shake no matter how hard you try. It can take you down. Squash all hope. Stop you in your tracks. Impossible. Impenetrable. Unchangeable. Maybe so...until God gets involved. No matter the details of your circumstance, his raw power potential and immeasurable ability refuse to cower in the face of any challenge. Nothing is impossible with God. Nothing. Not even that thing.
This is the uplifting, well-reasoned answer from New York Times best-selling author Priscilla Shirer - not a denial of life’s adversities and troubles but a biblical reminder that God is always up to great things, even when his great things are greater than instant remedies and visible change. He is a God who cares...and a God who can. Believe it. Experience it. God Is Able.
What would have made God Is Able better?
This amazing author, Priscilla Shirer, is an outstanding and anointed minister of the word of God. Her story is well written, easy to comprehend and practical for improving my walk with God. When Priscilla tells her own story, as in other audiobooks I have purchased, there is an enlightenment that goes beyond just listening to a reader. Priscilla's audio voice sets the book on FIRE! I often shout and cry and praise like never before because her gift of deliverance of the word of God is supernaturally contagious. Priscilla has a gift from God for delivering her story like no one else will ever be able to match.I mean no offense to the narrator, I am simply saying my truth. It was difficult to, at times impossible, to listen to her narration because of an overall lack of authenticity. What I mean is that her reading was not her gift at all. She constantly pronounced the A with a long a sound rather than the appropriate (ah) sound which was irritating. Her flat and unauthentic connection to the story made it so obvious that she did not live or engage in the experience of what was written and experienced by Priscilla. I purchased the book on line but cannot listen to it for many other reasons; narration takes away from the beauty and gift of the story. I ended up having to buy a hard copy as well so that I could get to the meat of the ministry materials; it was hard to listen and pause and listen and stop due to some word pronunciations and word inflections. Also it took away from the story itself so much so that I had to read it silently (which is not my preference since I am required to read technical materials in my profession). I enjoy listening to audiobooks as a way to enjoy reading materials that I love.Please, Priscilla, continue to read your own audios or hire someone who exudes the fire, passion and presentation of the Lords Word with intensity and enthusiasm.Such a great story; such a disappointment in audio delivery. We each have special gifts and talents; Priscilla’s gift includes ministry and delivery of the Word of God. This review is intended to help and not to harm anyone; it is my experience.
What did you like best about this story?
It not only inspires but is detailed in ways that I have not thought of when I say: God is Able.The story invites me to have an encounter with God and to begin to work "with" Him and Him only in times where supernatural blessings are sought and in instances where I can share this message with others in need.The stories and testimonies gave me hope and most resonated with me personally.What I liked most of all was the "realness" and transparency of the author; I know now on a higher level that GOD IS ABLE.
Would you be willing to try another one of Lisa Renee-Pitts’s performances?
No. Lisa could be used in other areas of her gifts but not as a professional narrator.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Faith! Self reflection. I remind myself and my family and friends that GOD IS ABLE. I was challenged in the book to remember the ways in which God has shown me His mercy, grace and deliverance in so many ways over the years. It challenged me to look back at how far He has brought me and that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD; HE IS ABLE!!
Any additional comments?
I will highly recommend the hard copy to many in my path.Thank you for using your amazing gifts to bless the world.

I enjoyed the book because of the analogies she used. But after listening this book it made me feel like YES indeed my God is in control and He is for me.
Changed my focus from MY issues to His power! I will listen to this book over and over!
