I got the audio book to compliment the actual book. We are using it in church and bible study.
Even though I grew up with the bible it makes a nice introduction and easy for
adults and children to follow.

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.
I loved the book. Characters were described clearly as well as the social, economical, and cultural influences during the period.
I loved this book because it was easy to listen to and it kept me engaged from beginning to end. It became a source of discussion with my study group. We were all better able to understand the 12 tribes. I have recommended this book to several of my friends who says that the Bible is hard to understand.
I have been listening this book while I am driving and I am amazed of how entertaining it is. I have read the Bible completely but this book has remind me of passages that I had forgotten or I didn't understand before. It is fascinating and it keeps you waiting for more.
