Mr Jones' voice reading the Bible is so smoothing. The radio in my truck is not working so when I travel I listen to the Bible.
Would I buy it again you bet ya!
it is great combination The Bible and Mr Jones' voice.
The entire Book.
The only thing that I wish they had left off is the music. In my opinion it takes away from the reading. Mr jones alone would have been enough for me.
Jone's is great, but there is horrid put-you-to-sleep music though the whole reading. Not only is the music louder than Jones at times, but I had to keep rewinding to re-listen because the music makes it imposible to not zone out.
No one would ever make a movie where the actors had to speak over loud music.
I am a 69 yr old male, who is new to the Kindle. I have now orderd a total of 2 books, but I find it VERY DIFFICULT to order and even more difficult to download the book. In fact the second book still is not downloaded, because I tried and it didn't wor k, so now I'm waiting for a young person to download it for me. Therefore I am very fast loosing my interest in audiobooks. It's simply just to high tech for seniors to do.
That is my only comment on the kindle and the audiobook system.
I would try another book
James Earl Jones was great in the movie Star Wars. But personally to listen to him read was a little hard on the ears. I had to turn it off the KIndle and return a little later.
Denzel as Jesus and Halle Berry as Mary for starters
Keep up the good work with the audible books!
Both audible and print versions have their respective appeal. I have both. There are times when it's not possible to read - walking and public transport then I revert to audible so as not to waste any time. Both versions compliment each other.
It's the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the TRUTH. It reveals life in its raw state with no hidden agendas.
There are many people named by name, but only one character - Jesus Christ.
While I refuse to rate God's Word and James Earl Jones poorly, the distracting and annoying music ruined this reading for me. At times, Mr. Jones' resonant voice was completely muffled by the background music. I wish I had listened to the sample before purchasing...wouldn't have bought it.
Jones is so good he makes even
He adds a depth of feeling a good actor can bring to the words.
The Bible is actually my favorite book. I purchased this to be able to listen to it on a driving trip.
I was shocked and very disappointed to discover that the editors felt it necessary to impose background music to the ENTIRE reading of the New Testament. (As if the Bible requires accompaniment to make it interesting?) The constant undertone of piano music is very distracting and makes it too difficult to concentrate on The Word that is being read. I would not have purchased this recording if I had known, but I did not see any way of sampling the recording before I purchased it. I didn't get beyond the book of Matthew, and I will probably never listen to it again.
no, not time well spent. Didnt even finish it.
w/o JEJ yes.
Was a flat waste of my hard earned money. Other productions on the market are much better.
the music is aweful, very dated, wish they would turn it off and let JEJ speak, i was excited to purchase this but couldn't get past the 1st verse
