Michael York is the main speaker and his voice is very pleasant to listen to. There's some gentle music and sound effects in the background that add to the experience so you can better picture what's going on. Having different actors read the verses spoken by the different people in the Bible was a great idea. It really brings the Bible to life! I highly recommend this audio KJV!!
This is a very well done narration of the Bible. My only complaint is that there is no way to search by book . It comes in parts 1-18 with no indication of what books are in each part. When reading in a section there is no way to tell what book you are in unless you happen to hear the very first line of the book where they do identify the book. That is very frustrating! If I want to hear the book of, say John, you have to spend a long time of hunt and check to find it. I don't understand why such a critical feature was not included. I would not have chosen it if I had known this. But as I said, the reading and background music and sound effects are very well done.
I absolutely love the audible Bible and I hear a lot more than I read. God is Awesome, and thanks to all the people who acted the Book out.
The readings are great -- dramatic and engaging. But it is very frustrating that there is no way to tell which books are in which part. To find Jeremiah, for example, I had to open several parts and listen to each for a few minutes in order to figure out if I had the right one. The parts and chapters should be labeled like the books of the Bible so that you can find what you are looking for.
I've listened to several versions of audio Bibles and this is, hands down, the best. The actors project emotion without unnecessary drama. The only downside is if you are trying to track where you are in the Bible. Chapters are numerical and do not reflect the location. A great upside is being able to listen at a speed that is comfortable for you.
I am the mother of three grown children. I own a horse ranch and enjoy listening to Mystery/Suspense novels and Personal Development books.
It was very well read with different characters reading different parts.
No other book would compare, at least not that I have read.
I like the different inflections and the different voices it really helps you follow the story. I have never been able to actually read the bible.
I enjoyed the whole book.
I have never read the bible although I have always been curious. This version allowed me to get through the entire thing while I was at work. It was very entertaining and well organized and I truly enjoyed it. It you have an interest in what the bible is all about, I would highly recommend it.
It should have been easy to engineer the book so that different book parts might show. Instead it is a little like being blind and needing to listen for an extended time to locate where you are reading.
All the bible is good, it might be better with a method telling where you are currently at.
Narrators are good.
Very good book but poorly designed.
If there is a away to add this please do so ASAP.
I am the road a lot and would to know I can go right to the book of James and start listen, then trying search where it is.
Pleases Help this better for me and many others.
A listener who would like to fully enjoy this audio.
Without these opinions the package is leak.
This can be package better.h
Yes ,the dramatization is awesome, but I found it awkward to deal with chapters in the audible app that were not titled, as the books of the Bible are.
The greatest, life-changing story ever told!!!
I've tried reading the entire bible and found it difficult to continue moving along. The sound effects in this listening make a world of difference to completing it and understanding the context. So nice to hear books in one shot with consistent flow. It was really exciting to get to the New Testament. I think you'll love this format.
