I like the way it is has added dramatization with music and sounds to accompany the Word.
I like them all but I think the narrarator is my favorite.
There are lots of moving moments in the Word.
The dramatization may not be for everyone, some may find it a bit distacting.
Yes I would listen again.
I haven't finished the recording yet but I want to let all potential listeners know the recording is fantastic. I like the narration and the sound effects add to my enjoyment. I can't sit still and read it but listening while I clean house and do dishes or even pulling weeds I think I can get it finished by Easter. Some of the words have been changed from what I read in my bible but that's ok. It's basically the same idea and it's fun to see what I remember from the first time I read it.
If you are like me and just never had the patients to read the Bible cover to cover but the desire to, then this is the answer. I listen to it while comuting, and I love it! I am only on Part 5 which is Kings. But I have learned so much! True that it is not a bible for studying and referencing, but still a very good version of the Bible to have in your library.
Listening to the old testament at night under a starry sky. Listening to the earlier books of the Bible like
Heck no..its huge
It is not just one isolate thing. It is the whole package. The high quality of pronunciation, the dramatization, the great number of actors who worked professionally to bring this Bible alive, the clever way with which the translations was made, which is not so old as King James', but it is not so simple as the common standard ones; the size of it, the speed, the rhythm with which they utter it; the clarity of it. If the Devil is in the details, God is in the details as well. Those details are far superior than a normal Bible, read by a monotonal, lifeless voice, which takes away all the pleasure in the listening. The ensemble is far greater than the additional of its parts.
Other than Jesus, all the other men's of God who have lived before him in the Old Testament. Saint Paul is one of my favorites also.
I still haven't heard all the Bible yet, for I prefer listening several times the same passage over and over, but they are all very good.
It would be impossible to make only one film about so much material. I would rather make a ten years series telling the whole story of the Bible. The name of it would be the whole Bible.
Any crhistians should have the opportunity to listen to this Bible, for all its high qualities. I will listen to it my whole life: only God knows how many times.
Great reading, however, it is difficult to find individual chapters. No Table of Contents.
Like the different voices. Makes listening much more interesting and remembered.
Many different ones
No - Too long. I love to listen to it while I clean and cook.
Again, no table of contents, so it is difficult to go to a certain portion.
Word of God
The best audio version of the Bible I have ever heard!
The voice of GOD was magnificently portrayed...
It gave me chills to hear the voice of GOD so well portrayed!
I am able to listen to the bible and it is like I am there!!!
There are so many EXCELLENT voice actors in this production but by far my favorite is the voice of GOD (he has a British accent - wonderful!)
It has changed my life! I always intended to read the Bible but never get very far ... Especially in the old testiment where the names of people and places were hard for me to pronounce, etc. Now I listen every night and in a year's time I have heard almost all of it and some parts I have listened to several times (especially the old test.).
I truly believe God himself had a hand in the production of this audio version of the Bible!
In a world full of people like me (ADHD, destracted, desperate for the WORD) that are unable (for different reasons) to read the Bible cover-to-cover, HE has provided another 'format' for all who will seek him, and his WORD has reached me ... Once I started listening, my desire to hear more lead to my desire to reasd it too!!!
THANK YOU JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Due to disability I am unable to hold a book...the kindle opened a new world of reading for me!
I already love the Bible, so listening to it in the dramatic theatre presentation was a wonderful treat!
The only drawback to me was there are many parts to this book and I think each part should be labeled as to what sections of the Bible are being read.
All of the movie stars played a wonderful roll in the wonderfully dramatic reading of this KJ version of the Bible.
