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.

Dramatic, Well Produced, Difficult Navigation
Although it makes it difficult to navigate or pick up your Bible to follow along, I'm very pleased with the lack of Chapter markers in the performance itself. The books of the Bible were written as continuous accounts or letters and were not intended to have chapter breaks. Hearing the authors' words without these interruptions is helpful in grasping the "big picture" of Scripture. It is detrimental, however, to not have the chapters labeled in the app menu. It makes it impossible to navigate to any particular book of the Bible (although I believe you will run into this problem with any Audible book). The performances are strong and the production value was clearly a focus for the producers. It does, however, sometimes feel like the production overshadows the text and can be distracting. The sound effects feel random at times, and the addition of fully produced worship songs between chapter readings in books like 2 Corinthians (which are more southern gospel than anything you would hear in biblical times) pulls you out of the period. With those exceptions, however, This dramatized version of the Bible is very impressive.
Its a fascinating tale that would begin on may 5th, 1989 in Mease Dunedin hospital and from there the legacy grew. I am adult now.
The bible has never been more clear to me. What a wonderful instrument to teach the word of God. A fantastic read by the best actors.
Love it Enjoyed sharing with others. Helps me read the bible more .Listen to it while I am sleep.
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.
