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.
This shortened version of the bible definitely leaves some things out but it does a good job covering the main parts. If you have never been through the bible front to back this is a great first step into that journey and learning more on what the bible and its stories are about and how they are all on connected.
I was skeptical about this listen, because I thought I would focus more on the thing I am familiar with in the bible instead of the focus being on task with the narrator. I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to stay with the narrator.
I chose this listen because it is my desire to remain in the word and KNOW the story of Jesus. This was a huge help, I heard things I missed while reading.
So glad for this purchase I listen over and over.
This has no navigation, chapters are named chapter 1, chapter 2, etc. It is impossible to find book or verse. This is designed that you listen to entire book. No listening to verses from church, unless you want to listen to everything
Desktop apps look they were made by my brothers kids back in 95.
My pastor told me this would be a good starting place in my study of The Bible and she was so right! I loved the narration and the way it's put into simple terms for someone like me just stepping into faith.
