Narrators and special effects truly puts me there. The music brings it alive!! However, I wish it was possible to locate chapter and verse from a content list.
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.
Yes! I plan to give as a gift to many friends! The Bible Experience has an beautiful production. The actors read the bible beautifully and the sound effects was awesome. Listening to the book enriches the imagination as you hear Jesus walking on the water and asking Peter to 'grab my hand'! You should definitely have The Bible Experience!
I enjoy reading Lynn Austin's historical fiction. Her books oh the Civil are awesome as well.
This is not your typical audio bible. As you listen to these they become alive and you feel like you are living in the story!
This is an ideal way to read the Bible. The sound effects are fantastic. The only voice that I find is a little low is Moses, but I think this was due to the fact that they wanted to show that he had difficulty with speaking. The sound effects makes the Bible come alive. I listen to the audio book as I read from my Bible. It is a wonderful experience. I now know how to pronounce many of the words I had trouble with.
Yes I would b cause its not boring and its better than reading although I follow along in the Bible.
The Bible Experience Reinactment
the bible read as if alive
the voices are excellent
the problem comes with trying to find particular chapters of the bible indexing could be much better
I love books!!! I've discovered the joy of reading and listening simultaneously. I've discovered some great treasure in some of the books.
Inspired, Anointed, and Revealing
Song of Songs (Denzel Washington) reading the words of the king. Powerful and very vibrant in imagery. The relationship of the bridegroom to the bride is very intentional and you feel apart of the relationship that is developing as well as the longing to be with the bride again.
The crucifixion is my favorite. Blair Underwood is very believable as the words of God in agony is revealed through his performance.
The entire story of the children of Israel in the wilderness. As you read the text, you read how they constantly complained and rebel against Moses. However, when you listen to the story in the Bible Experience, you can visualize Moses running on behalf of the children toward God seeking repentance on their behalf. What an awesome portrayal of a loving leader for the people.
