It is very annoying so theatrical in an animated almost cartoony sense,....overdone. Jesus voice is about the only one that seemed normal. John the Baptist...made me laugh...the noises and voice in the background are just weird. I fell asleep listening to this and in and my dream I was trying to turn it off, clicking switches, pulling plugs from this elaborate stereo system and it would not turn off in my dream no matter what I tried to do!!!! Then thankfully I finally woke up and realized that is was just on my computer and I shut it off...worst sleep I have had in a long time....Ugggh!!!!
Pure Voice the Bible...soooo much better. The narrator has a nice voice and is not at all annoying such as The Bible Experience.
I give up
The bible itself is it's only redeeming qualities
Can I just delete these three downloads for the Bible Experience ? Pleeze!!!!
You have not known anything about the real story untill you heard this performance.Depth, nouances, clearity, and resurrecting the word. The living word truely comes alivein this performance. Halleluja.
I really appreciate how in Paul's letters the various performers transition and illustrate thatit is not one man's letter, but the Holy Spirit that is speaking. Various artists make it suggestive that it was not one man's job, that it was not man's job. Aloha.
Sound affects turn the experience a close up, yet epic life time memory. It will remain my
daily practice to aid me feel close to my god. I can not imagine my daily devotions without it.
With repeated listening I beleive I will be able to gain further and further understanding of the Book of Revelation that is the most misterious and most difficult to follow part.
Every human should hear this performance before they refuse christianity, for they would think again. And every christian should hear it, for it would completely change the depth of their experience. Amen
They all bring something wonderful and unique to each person of the bible
realism~because you hear it, like you're there.
no~you can't, it's something you have to take in little by little and let it soak in.
I would listen again and again...the accounts come alive with words, expressions and sounds of the surroundings that transport the listener to the time and place. The events are memorable and lasting and the context is more clearly understood listening as the events unfold in the Gospels.
At the top-it is a true performance!
The actors really bring the story to life.
That would have to be the main character Jesus but Peter was great too!
It's not possible to absorb it all in one sitting. It needs to be savored slowly and with lots of self-reflection.
If the audio had normal quality (like 320 kbps not 65 kbps...yeah this is the highest quality possible), I would have fully enjoyed this book. But with such a low bitrate I'm not exaggerating to say that this was a complete waste of credit and time.
I LOVE THIS SO MUCH I HAD TO WRITE IN ALL CAPS... IF YOUR THINKING ABOUT GETTING THIS, TRUST ME, IT WILL BLESS YOU BEYOND RECOGNICENCE!!! YOU WON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT HIT YOU WHEN YOU LISTEN TO THIS! THE HOLY TRINITY IS ALL UP AND THROUGH THIS EXPERIENCE!!! LET NO ONE AND NOTHING STOP YOU FROM RECEIVING THIS AS A BLESSING!!! I'M UTTERLY IN LOVE... I HAD BEEN PLANNING ON ATTAINING THIS PIECE OF LOVE FROM GOD FOR A WHILE, AND NOW THAT I FINALLY HAVE IT... I'M ABOUT TO CRACK IT BACK OPEN AND CONTINUE MY JOURNEY... SO LET THE TRINITY START YOU ON YOURS... DON'T WAIT FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO TELL YOU THAT IT'S GOOD... GET IT AND KNOW THAT IT IS TRULY AN EXPERIENCE TO HAVE!!! A FRIEND MR. RUBBER DUCKY A.K.A. SHANNON SAID TO THE CONGREGATION THAT THE LORD HAD REVEALED TO HIM THE ACRONYM OF THE B.I.B.L.E.- BASIC INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE LEAVING EARTH!!! HOW GREAT IS THAT!?!?! SERIOUSLY, THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS GOING TO BLESS YOU GENERATIONALLY... JUST PASS THE WORD DOWN LIKE THE LORD, JESUS, WANTS YOU TOO, AND BE BLESSED!!! NO GREATER FEELING THAN THE LOVE OF JESUS!!! NOW GET THIS PIECE OF LOVE, SO YOU CAN HAVE SOME PEACE IN YOUR LIFE, AND SO YOU MAY FEEL LIKE I FEEL RIGHT NOW WRITING TO YOU... COME ON AND BLESS YOURSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is great to hear the Bible read by several voices (although I can't help but think about Pulp Fiction every time Samuel Jackson speaks). By having several voices read it, I don't attach a particular voice to God, I just hear the words. The overall production is good, though a bit heavy on the synthesized muzak.
The main problem is the extremely long title (for example "Inspired By...The Bible Experience: Old Testament (Unabridged) Part 12"): The NT is broken down into 3 parts and the OT into 19 with "part n" at the very end and it is not possible to shorten or otherwise change titles in Audible Player. That makes it difficult to find the part you want on your mp3 player- first you need to know which part has which books of the Bible and then you need to count or wait for the entire title to scroll across the little screen before you know which part it is.
I got this because I wanted to HEAR the spoken word of God. Now there were some solid narrators enlisted that knew the subject matter, developed an affinity for the material and delivered it to their audience. They were articulate and talented enough to pull it off whether they were believers or not. (Blair Underwood, Phillip Morris, LeVar Burton and T. D. Jakes were absolutely brilliant.) Others in main roles were miscast and their lack of diction or modulating articulation made listening to them a real challenge (Kirk Franklin and Donnie McClurkin were the worst offenders. Love them as musicians, but they made poor narrators. Samuel L. Jackson joined them from time to time.). Overall the gospels were read quite well. When it came to the reading of the epistles, the production hit many bumps. Interrupting the flow of the narrations were songs, which were great in their own right, but in this arena, were a major distraction. I wanted to hear the word. Incidental music is fine, but wailing gospel solos or foot stomping choir renditions came out of nowhere and stayed a long time before I could continue hearing what I came to hear. It frequently broke the flow of the narrator???many times. This wasn't supposed to be a musical, but a heartfelt reading of the New Testament ... and it was for a while. If they stuck with just that idea alone (and replaced K. Franklin) this really would have been a five star production. It???s still worth a listen, but with this caveat in mind.
