Pros: Enjoyable Listen. If not for all the "Cons" below, I would have rated this as a total of five stars.
1. Advertised as "Complete". It is only Old Testament
2. Advertised as "Dramatized". Technically, it is not advertised. It has background music (no sound affects) - also just has different voices reading the different parts (this in my opinion, does not mean "dramatized").
3. Does not advertise who is doing the different voices (this would be a nice feature)
4. After downloaded, it does not show what book you are listening to, etc. Therefore, if you wanted to listen to a particular book, very difficult to locate the book.
Seems like the people who publish Bible Audio Books would find a way to format it so you can view books, chapters etc, - view what you are listening to.
Other than all the above, I really enjoyed listening to.
Very much enjoyed listening to Johnny Cash read the New Testament of the Bible. I can't say he was any better than other narrators (incl. Alexander Scourby) I've listened to reading the Bible. However, he was very good. Too bad he didn't do the entire Bible. I recommend this audio bible highly.
First, I never knew how much I'd love using an audio Bible. This has made soaking up God's word so much more accessible throughout my day.
That being said, I agree with the common disbelief among commenters that the file parsing is so bad. I listen via my iPod shuffle, so everything is found with scanning. It's brutal. :-) A big thanks to the folks who've shared the breakdowns here. And I agree that 66 files would be so much better.
The reading does feel a bit robotic at times and I laughed out loud when I read the comments about the strained sound on quotes. It's so true, though I hadn't though about it much after the first day or so. I guess one person's "emphasis" is another's "strain." Also, the change in tone/pitch/etc on the quotes really does help you separate them out in your mind.
It's quite a feat to read the entire 66 books of the Bible with a consistent tone and gate, so Mr. Heath has my respect for this momentous task, and I appreciate his efforts.
