First, the good: This is a terrific bargain for a single credit. For readability, I have most recently relied either upon the NIV or New Living Translations, but I was pleased with the NKJV translation. It is accurate and easily understandable; this translation was suited perfectly for an Audio book. The readers were outstanding, and there was just enough dramatization, music and background effects to keep the stories moving without being annoying or overly-distracting. The sound quality was flawless.
Now, the bad: As other reviewers have detailed, dividing the Bible into 17 tracks is puzzling. Finding any particular passage is laborious and frustrating.
If you are seeking an Audio presentation of the Bible to listen to and experience a cover-to-cover read, you will find this production very much to your liking. If, on the other hand, you are looking for an Audio Bible to add to your library to listen to various individual scriptures, this format is not well suited for such an endeavor; other audio renditions may be more navigable for such a purpose.
This is the second audiobook version of the TTC I have (the first being S. Mitchell's), and although I first hesitated to get a second version of something I already had, I am glad I did.
The translation is quite interesting and although similar to Mitchell's, it is different enough to be fresh and provoke new thoughts.
The reading style is a bit more stoic and scholarly, and again I think this provides a nice contrast to the Mitchell version. I thought the reader did a wonderful job, and had no problems listening on earbuds or speakers. It is a bit more "brisk" than the Mitchell version.
There is also an interesting commentary at the end, well-worth a listen in its own right.
I've mentioned this on some other reviews, but I wish the audiobook chapters matched up with the book chapters. I guess that's not a concern or something, but it bothers me just a bit. It makes jumping to desired parts of the book almost impossible. I suppose the extra effort of manually "chaptering" a reading is not seen as being an important goal?
Overall: a great translation and recording!
