I loved the dramatization. The only part that I didn't care for was the intermittent gospel songs that seemed to pop up in the middle of the readings. I found that very distracting and out of place.
Such a blessing to read and listen to the Word of God.It is a light that we need to make it through the day. Thank you Father, thank you Jesus Christ, and thank you Holy Spirit.
I like the idea of the story being retold in a dramatic reading. It brings the story alive and right where I am. I read any letter/book of the New Testament from start to finish in one sitting. The letters/books are read straight through without the pause of announcing the chapter. Having it done that way gives the true feel of the instructions given.
To truly understand the instructions given by Paul and other writers, we are encouraged to read a letter/book from start to end each day for 30 days. I like that I can do that in about an hour for some of the longer letters/books. Reading the Bible this way keeps me focused on the message. My mind doesn't wonder as much.
All the narrators grab my attention. I enjoy the entire dramatization although I do identify with some letters/books more than others, e.g. Romans, Hebrews and James are my favorites.
I reaction to the dramatizations was one of delight and enlightenment. I'm glad so many accepted the challenge to bring the Bible to life.
I would recommend this dramatization to every reader looking to read the Bible and truly study the messages given for a better life.
Use to love to read until audible... now love to listen
A very good way to study the Bible, a must have to keep and listen to at anytime.
I wanted to download this for my husband but it wont let me but the book is good to listen to on the computer just wanted to put it on disk
strong clear understandable
Listening to it is like watching a movie. Extremely theatrical, entertaining, and in line with the Word. I've tried many versions of recorded bibles and this is by far the best. It's also great recognizing the voices. The sound effects are just enough; they are not overwhelming at all. Great study tool. My best purchase from this site.
I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THE BOOK,FROM THE CHARACTER TOTHE BACKGROUND MUSIC.
IT MAKE YOU FEEL AS IT YOU WERE RIGHT THERE.
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.
Yes!I have bought them as gift in the past
All had there own gift which brought it together
I felt I was there!
You should have been there!
Thanks you for bring the story to life! I would like to see this version on T.V.
To be able to hear the words not the noise would have been better
The preformance could have been better if the word had not been changed
If the back ground had been just that I might have enjoyed the experience.
But change the words when scholars had spent so much time agonizing over how to translat each idea perfectly, you have not made it better.
