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.
I liked the format of this book very much. Initially, I thought it was awkward with the different narrators and subtle sound effects, but later on saw that this was a great idea. Imagine how tedious it would be to hear someone just reading the bible verbatim and saying John 1:1 "blah blah blah," so I think this is a good option for an audiobook if you're in the market for a bible. The narrators are all superb.
audio books are Theater of the Mind when done right. They lift words from a page written by an author and transport you into another world
All the actors bringing the word of god to life in such a powerful and masterful way.
So many, I think I will pick Mosses as it was the first part that really helped bring the bible to life in this format for me
All the actors show how masterful they are at there craft as they bring such life to the word of God
It's the Bible and the word of god so it is to me very moving indeed
If you haven't read the bible you should give this a listen. If you have read the bible this will bring the story to life even more. Masters of the Craft like Jason Alexander , Joan Allen , Jim Caviezel , Richard Dreyfuss , Louis Gossett , Marcia Gay Harden , Stacy Keach , Malcolm McDowell , Gary Sinese , Marisa Tomei and so many more give life to the word of GOD . O can't recommend this enough.
This version of The Holy Bible is fantastic. The sound and music quality is compelling and adds an atmospheric presence. The narrators are top notch actors and actresses. This is a perfect version for beginning to end linear listening. This is also the bad point. The download comes in 17 files, and each file is only distinguishable by the part number, like Part 1, Part 2 and so on. There is no book or chapter reference in the part titles. Also, once downloaded skipping sections does not skip from one book or chapter to the next, at least from what I hear. You can skip, but not in a way that is useful for locating certain passages. All of this makes the Bible download a por and inefficient way to reference certain books and chapthers in the audio, which is fine. This version, I think, was meant only for linear play. and that is done wonderfully. For that reason I give it 5 stars.
You will never finish this book. Wheen you finish ..you'll want to start over.
This book is unique in that it's alwsys the 'other book' that's being listened to along with any others you may be listening to. It's a true companion for life.
There are many narrators. All wonderful with beautiful background music.
This book is a great treasure.
This is an excellent way to become familiar with the Bible, especially if you are a beginner reader.
This reading of Scripture captures your attention is being The NKJ Version is closer to the original Greek than most dramatized readings of the Bible
The Story itself, THE GOSPEL-Good News for me and us
