Dare to dream...
This is not an audio bible, This is some screwball idea to trash the listening pleasure that should come with an audio bible. The Gospels seemed good but then Romans came along and the ambient backgrounf noise suddenly became a forground distraction. A Clicking sound began and was so irritating that I could NOT understand the narration. 1st Corinthians bombed when during mid sentence some modern day rock music exploded, synthisized music and all. This kind of wacko distraction continued through 2nd Corinthians and on into Galatians. Finally, I stopped listening. Don't buy this trash!!! The performance was directed by some circus clowns.
I love that I can listen to the Bible in such an interactive way. I listen little bits at a time in my car to and from work. I have ADD and have found it horribly frustrating to read the bible. What a joy listening to it. This is the first time I have read the New Testament from beginning to end. I know some do not like that the verses are not introduced, but the books are, and it is more like a story this way. The music is great too!
I have listened to various audio bibles throughout the night for over 20 years. Now in my late 50's I tend to wake up several times in the night to hear the scriptures being narrated, it is truly an amazing privilege not open to previous generations.
My only wish with this production is that it gave the chapter numbers so that I could easily look something up which particularly grabbed my attention whilst reading it, as I use the King James Version as my default translation and I don't have the search capability for this version.
I don't know why they thought it was a good idea to insert music and hymns into the reading of the Bible, but it was NOT! Somewhere mid-way the book, there are songs played after the reading of a few chapters. This really got on my nerves as I was interested in hearing the Word not listening to gospel music, I have iTunes for that. The Old Testament was good, I looked forward to listening to the New Testament until I heard it.
I have listened to this Bible reading over and over because it is so easy to understand and lively! Some of the other audible Bibles seem to have a robot or drone reading them. I truly enjoy this Bible Experience!
This version of the bible has me looking for more. I love the way the bible is read and the drama puts me sometime back in time.
I simply love it.
