I've listened to just about every audio bible out there: Scourby, Johnston, Zorsky, Peck, McLean, and several others I can't even recall. Some were unlistenable from start. Others would start off fine and then, after a while, you realized that it was EATING YOUR BRAIN! I was about to give up on listening to audio bibles altogether when I stumbled on this one, where the Man in Black reads the NT. From the first moment I started listening, I knew I had finally found The One.
Cash reads the NT in a manner that engages you and draws you in. He sounds like he's talking *with* you, not *at* you; like he's talking to a close friend and not up on stage talking to strangers. I've only had this audio bible for a few weeks but I've already listed to it for dozens of hours (I hike a lot and listen to it while hiking).
The translation used is the NKJV, which is a good, faithful translation but lacks the "clang and flavour" of the KJV. Reading the NKJV is like drinking decaffeinated coffee-- same basic brew but lacks the punch and kick of the fully-caffeinated KJV. Nevertheless, this audio bible is an outstanding production.
This product is the NT only. For Psalms, Alex Jennings' rendition of the KJV Book of Psalms is incomparable.
