It's Genesis through 2 Chronicles... really?
The Inspired By media group is outstanding and this is a faithful presentation of my favorite book.... but not all of it is here.
This should be called "Part 1" or something I downloaded this wanting ALL of what it says it is: The Old Testament.
So... Isaiah... Jeremiah.... Danie... Habakkuk .... Malachi.... where's the rest of it?
I had the NT Bible Experience audio and did not realize they completed the OT. I was happy to find this and immediately purchased it. I have not listened to the entire OT, but I've thoroughly loved all that I have heard and I know I will be listening to this for years to come.
This is an excellent purchase if you love the Word and it will make some of the OT books that you might not otherwise read, very enjoyable to listen to.
HIGHLY HIGLY Recommend, this is not for Entertainment - The Word of God will change your life if you are willing and obedient. I LOVE IT.
1. Could not see anywhere on Audible's website what version of the Bible this was done in. Very disappointed in the translation.
2. Would be helpful if the audio bible was broke down in books (not parts), etc. so it would be easier to select a certain book you wanted to listen too.
3. Also this particular audio book shows Angela Bassett as the main narrator. However, the main narration was done by a male - not a female.
4. I found the voice for Moses dull and very irritating.
5. Some the background music grated on my nerves (especially the high-pitched strings)
6. I find it extremely interesting that the group who put this audiobook together used various voices (including female!) for David in the book of Psalms.
If it wasn't for all the aforementioned I might would have given this four stars for overall.
I love the difference in accents, being Australian I found it great listing to. I also enjoyed the stories that had extra sounds and even the sound of a crowd - help bring it to life. 10/10
It is great to hear the Bible read by several voices (although I can't help but think about Pulp Fiction every time Samuel Jackson speaks). By having several voices read it, I don't attach a particular voice to God, I just hear the words. The overall production is good, though a bit heavy on the synthesized muzak.
The main problem is the extremely long title (for example "Inspired By...The Bible Experience: Old Testament (Unabridged) Part 12"): The NT is broken down into 3 parts and the OT into 19 with "part n" at the very end and it is not possible to shorten or otherwise change titles in Audible Player. That makes it difficult to find the part you want on your mp3 player- first you need to know which part has which books of the Bible and then you need to count or wait for the entire title to scroll across the little screen before you know which part it is.
I have listened to several Audio Bibles; but I have never heard anything as enjoyable as it. This is truly an experience. I am very glad and blessed by this. The dramatization is awesome..I would highly recommend this Audio.
My version is missing second kings through Ezra. The chaptering is odd but manageable. The extarneous music and noises is only moderately annoying. The long pauses at the start of each book is annoying to me.
Growing up I was a reader. From the age of 3 I was reading music notes, newspaper, any book. It didn't matter. Now as I'm getting older, I'm noticing I do still like visual but I'm going more into the audio as well. I used to read the bible all of the time but got to the point where I didn't anymore, except at church which is no bueno. I've heard of other audio bibles but I didn't want anything boring. So when I heard about this group of actors recording the bible, I knew it would hold my interest so I joined audible and purchased Old/New and Proverbs. I love it. I can listen to it at home/work on computer AND on via my phone in car or on train commute. Great idea!
This is my first inspirational purchase for an audio book so I can't compare it to anything..except maybe the new testament and proverbs.
I finished listening to the book of Esther earlier this morning and I've read that book before and didn't get all of that out of it. The audio works with my imagination so now I'll forever remember the story.
oh noooo...you can't listen to this in one sitting. It's too much information for that. This is a book one listens to and then re-listens to. It's information but in a fun way.
I'm glad someone put this together. My attention span is not the same with reading and I needed a way to get back into reading/absorbing the Word of God. Thank you!
When I downloaded the old testament I got many seprate books that do not have separate labels. They say old testament but you cannot tell what book it is without clicking on it. Other than this this is the best audio bible that I have heard bar none.
