IT WAS LIKE WATCHING A MOVIE OF ALL THESE FAMOUS STORIES OF THE BIBLE..VISUAL WAS ENHANCED BY PROPERLY SELECTED MUSIC TO EMBELLISH THE STORY AND SET THE TONE OF EZCH TALE.
THIS HAS NOT BEEB COMPARED WITH ANOTHER AS IT SEEMS SET APART BECAUSE OF ITS SUBJECT MATTER.
THERE ARE MANY STORIES THAT MOVED ME .
CAN NOT WAIT UNTIL MY DAUGHTER IS OLD ENOUGH TO ENJOY THIS AUDIBLE BOOK.
This is a wonderful presentation of the Bible. Not just read but actually performed in somewhat of a radio drama type format with sound effects. It is the New King James Version, which means it is written/performed in more every day language......Much easier to understand than the original King James version. I have only listened to the first few sections, but enjoyed what I have listened to so far. Whenever, I read the Bible, I pick out the same sections that I have read in the past....every time I try to read it from the beginning, I get bogged down in the "begets" and some of the old Testament.....but I think this will be a way to enjoy the entire Bible from beginning to End and actually read or listen to some of the sections that I have never read before. Thank you Audible. And such a bargain with my audible membership.
Sometimes the dramatization is excellent. Other times the dramatization is very annoying and distracting. At times the "Hollywood" distracts from the message.
This audio performance often omits who says what and often just jumps into dialog - skipping over those "unimportant" narrations cues given in Scripture. (I personally feel that this was a mistake. Nothing in Scripture is unimportant - not even the narration cues of who says what.)
You have to understand: this is an audio "performance". It is meant to sound like a radio drama. This means that it is has a higher entertainment value than study value.
In summary: For listening in the car: good.
For Bible study and reading along while listening - not recommended.
I truly believe everyone can get at least one thing from this audio book...and it is easy to read/listen everywhere you are...
the Promise within
easy listening, another way to learn what you are reading
EXTREMELY necessary for growth
don't put it off...get it now...read/listen, surrender, grown...eternally
Well done, Inspiring.
The story of David killing Goliath.
They make it enjoyable even through the drier parts.
Probably the most appropriate rendition of the Bible I have heard. The narration is clear and even can make the geneologies meaningful. Most importantly, it was performed respectfully.
I purchased an audible Bible because I was in the hospital for an extended period of time, and was having trouble reading and comprehending. I thought this would be a great alternative, especially at night, when I was trying to go to sleep. Turns out, that while the narration is great, and the sound effects are also great, the fact is, unless you either don't care where you start listening, or if you have LOTS of time to find the passage you were hoping to listen to, this version can be quite frustrating. If I had it my way, I think I would return it. I use my Bible to find specific passages, and I really cannot do that with this one. It's more of a nice story book, but not much more. Very frustrating, because I really wanted to like it.
I have this on CD's and it is great but for some reason when downloading on my kindle it starts at Proverbs. I am unable to start on a certain chapter and/or verse. So I find it OK if I just want to listen to the New Testament. But I wanted it to be more user friendly and I wanted the entire Bible.
This is litteral translation of the WORD.no GREATER GIFT has been given and no greater freedom has ever been fought for. More or harder than the right to receive and share this Passion. Having the word dramatized is not necessary for me but this dramatization is better than most I've heard. Thankful to audible for offering this. If the Word is bread for your life i highly recommend.

I know as each day passes we draw nearer to the fulfillment of this Word.the more Word we have in us the less room we have for lies. Don't wait for time not traveling.you can chew on this while driving,working,exercising,or anywhere at anytime life permits.
Yes. The narrating is great and the NKJV translation is very good.
There are many narrators. They all do well.
Usually the background music is great, but sometimes the background music is irritating, or confines the mood. It would be nice if one ear had just the narration without the background music, so I could choose whether I want to include the background music.
