Recommended Audiobooks

With the blog post on bluetooth headphones, I was asked this question:

Do you have any good recommendations for audiobooks or places to find good sermons to listen to? I have found that I like to listen to things when I am doing my daily cleaning or go out for a walk. Would love any suggestions for good things to listen to.

We are able to listen to audiobooks for free through our library and Hoopla. Lately, I have been listening to Thomas Watson books. He lived in the mid-1600’s. My favorite Thomas Watson books are:

The Art of Divine Contentment, by Thomas Watson
The Doctrine of Repentance, by Thomas Watson
The Ten Commandments, by Thomas Watson

Other books:

Knowing God, by J. I. Packer
Rediscovering Holiness, by J. I. Packer
The Attributes of God, by A. W. Tozer
Delighting in God, by A. W. Tozer
Worship, by A. W. Tozer
Absolute Surrender, by Andrew Murray
Of The Mortification of Sin in Believers, by John Owen

Those would provide many hours of great listening. I regularly re-listen to the books as well.

For sermons, perhaps your church’s sermons are available online and you could re-listen to them

I use Sermon Audio for finding messages. When I hear a recommendation for a preacher, I see if he has sermons on Sermon Audio. For example, I like Jim Berg books. I found out he has quite a few sermons on Sermon Audio.

  1. Two of my favorite free audiobooks are “Answers to Prayer, from George Müller’s Narratives” and “George Müller of Bristol”.

    George Müller documented over 60,000 answers to his prayers. He cared for over 10,000 orphans in the 1800’s, and only made his needs known to God.

    These books along with one about Hudson Taylor’s life can be found at LibriVox.

    1. Thanks for recommending George Muller!! He was a fascinating person!! I always wanted to read more about him. I have read a children’s biography of him, but that was many years ago! Sorry to say I had forgotten about him until your post!! I love reading about the saints of old and their writings. They seem to be so much richer and deeper than what you can find today. I am reading EM Bounds on Prayer now. Not sure if it is on audiobook. Have not looked.

  2. We really enjoy Lamplighter Theater books, particularly Teddy’s Button and The Basket of Flowers. These are a little pricey, but you can watch for sales – I got them 50% during Homeschool Conference season last year!
    Also, SermonAudio has thousands of free sermons to browse through and download. And – Teri Maxwell’s cds are great to listen to in the car when I’m running errands! 🙂

  3. Thank you so much for answering my questions and giving some suggestions. I will definitely add these to my to read/listen list. Thanks!

  4. Thanks so much, Teri! I have been using Sermon Audio too, to listen to Dr. S M Davis over the new year – he has some great resources on there now

  5. Thanks so much for sharing, Mrs. Maxwell! I enjoy listening to messages as well; while doing mainly hand (not much thinking) tasks (like crocheting, mending, cutting up lots of vegetables).
    Sermon Audio is a blessing. Since my family does much canning, processing produce is the time that we listen to audio messages and stories the most. The Lord’s given us so many resources to enjoy!
