I love the narration and the different people reading. The only problem I have is, if I'm looking for a specific book, they are very hard to find. None of the books are labeled. So to find the book of RUTH or the book of PSALMS, I have to tap on each book till I find it. Sometimes I just give up. I would give 5 stars if I could find each book faster.
Incredible audio bible. This is as good as it gets. High end professional actors makes the story telling sound natural,. The music and soundtrack includes environmental sounds too. I own some of the best audio bibles , and listen to the Bible is app which has many audio bibles to choose from (including many languages too), and this Word of Promise Bible is the by far the best. The only downside of this version is that Chapters are not identified in the traditional way, it would be wise for the publishng house to recut and relabel the audio tracks accordingly., however it is still the absolute best audio bible ever. It is true...Faith comes by hearing the word of God,. Great gift for anyone who has never read the bible. .
Brilliant performances by the most talented actors.
What a tribute to the Sword of the Spirit.
Arm yourself, as you internalize God's word day and night.
The main reason I gave this a lower rating is that it is not very user friendly in the app. Because of that I don't listen to this as much as I would like. Its such a large file, you need to figure out which section to download on your phone. In the app it just says part 1, part 2 etc (i.e. it does not list the books of the bible) so its hard to tell which to download. Likewise, if you want to fast forward to a certain passage - there is not an easy way to do that. For example, if you want to listen to Acts, you need to know that Acts is in part 16 and then fast forward until you get there. As others have said, the performance is very enjoyable, really brings it to life and easy to follow. In some cases, I would probably abridge a little bit more - the scriptures often repeat phrases for emphasis which can sound a little funny when performed. But that is a minor point and a matter of personal taste.
Absolute bluestocking & love it!!
Listening is like watching history play out in front of you & picturing the all that God has planned to come!
Very powerful - listening to the Living Word!
It's impossible to choose which volume number to listen to on Kindle Fire. You can't see the full title or volume number and the volumes aren't in any apparent order no matter how you sort. I knew I was on volume six on my phone so I picked the sixth tile on my kindle and it was volume twelve. Choosing what volume to listen to is a complete mystery, an exercise in randomness. Hopefully something they can fix in the interface? Would give it four or five stars if not for the completely unusable interface on Kindle Fire.
This is a new way to appreciate the bible. If you don't appreciate just straight narration you'll find the background effects enjoyable.
The Hollywood actors provide the drama and the special effects add a little punch to the readings.
I think this version is good for listening but I can't use it for memorization.
This is very different from the Alexander Scorby reading of the KJV. I think that this will appeal to anyone who needs to hear the word presented to them with a little drama.
I can't complain just listen to the word. It's good for the soul.
