I am a busy wife, mom, teacher, and I love audiobooks because I can listen anywhere while I get things done.
yes because I don't take time to read the bible and when I do listen to this and read my bible it is close enough I can follow along
If Max McLean had read the Bible like a normal person rather than trying to put his own dramatic imprint on every sentence, word, or thought.
Max McLean put all the emphasis on the wrong words. The inflections in every sentence are so distracting that I was literally unable to pay attention to the story. I couldn't make it past the story of Noah in Genesis before retiring this edition of the Bible.
Max McLean's deep voice is about the only thing halfway decent about this audio book.
If you can put up with inflections in all the wrong places then MAYBE this book is for you..
Not better, but different. Each one has its pros and cons. For commuters the audio version is very useful for reaching Bible "reading" goals.
The part when God stops Abrahan from killing Isaac.
He calibrates elegance and emotion.
When Joseph revealed itself to his brothers.
The NIV is a Bible translation that is easy to understand.
the bible i downloaded was not a complete version
wish i would have known only certian books were included
Having read the printed version of the Bible, I consider The Listener's Bible NIV to be an excellent supplement. The speaker is very clear, enunciates well especially the many and varied Hebrew names.
God, because it is His story.
Easy to listen
Almost like living in the time when you lay back with your eyes closed and allow your self to to focus on the word of GOD
everything he has the gift from GOD to bring GODS words to lifl
No but i could feel GODS presents as i listened.
I wish everyone could listen to this.
The NIV text and the audio edition each have their advantages of course. I usually prefer to listen and to read at the same time, but occasionally it is nice to just quietly lean back and let a passage unfold.
I like the way each Bible book (or sometimes grouped books) can be opened separately in the "Home" screen. Using bookmarks allows me to easily return to the desired place in multiple Biblical books that I am reading or studying. It is a reasonable way to organize such an extensive volume.
Other audio Bibles are useful (i.e. - NKJV), for translation comparison.
Mr. McLean is a very efficient narrator and at times brings specific passages to life in unique ways. I wondered if I would, but found that I like the background music. It is discrete enough to not detract from the context.
It is not possible to improve the tag line it already has: Holy Bible.
I can hear better using the ear buds with my Kindle. It would also be nice to hear it on my iPad or computer. I have not found an app for that yet.
Yes. Over all, very well done and easy to listen too. I love Max McLean as an actor. His narration in this project is very good. It is a little flatter than I would have expected from him but still the best I have heard.
Love books on tape! It's all about the narrators for me though. No matter how good the story, if the narrator doesn't cut it...
What can I say? It's the Bible...the best book ever written! Some of the greatest stories ever written are in the Bible.
