I loved how easy this book was to listen too...learned several things...will listen to it again.
This is your story...

Enjoyable, clear, true
It compares closest to the chronological Bbible because it is the story of the Bible in the order in which it occurred- but not every word. It starts at the beginning, uses the Bible to tell the story, then for the passage of time to next Biblical event the historical record of what was occurring in the world during that time is told. Nothing is added to any biblical teaching but it flows from beginning to the probably soon-to-come end times in a way that the picture of God's plan is clear.
It's the Bible. There are no characters. These were real people going through real events.
The crucifixion of Jesus. It should never cease to move me or anyone else the supreme sacrifice paid so none have to eternally perish.
Highly recommend it for those already believers and for those who don't fully understand the Gospel but would like a slightly detailed overview. God's word never returns void so the end result of many reading would most likely be many saved.
I enjoyed every part of "The Story". The narration was excellent and I loved the background music. It really gave a feeling of being there. I did miss some familiar parts of the Bible that were not included, but overall it was very, very well done. Take the time to listen, you will be glad that you did.
I'm having a hard time listening to this book. The music is distracting. There is way too much background noise going on. I think reading the book would be better for me.
Yes, I would have put way less commentary in there, and had it be less "parental". The commentary feels like a Sunday school teacher. I was surprised by this. I wanted just stories, and would have gladly taken some of the missing stories instead of commentary.
It's the bible, hard to pick a favorite :) Obviously the death and resurrection of Jesus is one of the most significant.
It's weird to mark the Bible as a 3 star story, the 3-stars really is because of the commentary. Of course I believe the bible is the greatest story ever told.
The bible is made up of 66 books written over the span of 1500 years by about 40 authors. It contains the 39 books of the Jewish Testament plus 27 in the New Testament. Yet it is a single story: God's plan for mankind. This book is a fun yet meaningful way to hear how it all fits together.
I love this book, but I wish it included more...I mean, I listen to it EVERY night. I am disappointed that I can't find the chapter the talks about Samson. I love that Bible story, about Samson! It is one of my favorites! That's one of the things I dislike about the audiobook.
