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.

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?
Spellbinding creative excellence.
I most appreciated the engaging narrative.

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.
I used to think I would recommend it, but not anymore because of it dropping 2 Timothy 3:16-17.
I liked the performances.
I pretty much liked them all.
I listened to it in my car.
Put 2 Timothy 3:16-17 back in. "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."
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.
I have no clue what verse, chapters or books I'm in. this is on going reading with no book marks. If you want to read Genesis, Exodus or Levitcus, there's no way to found them. No titles to any books on this audio. I don't have I tunes so I can't change the parts. Nineteen parts with no titles. BIG miss!
