    Story

    I've been wanting this Bible in audiobook for some time. I have the DVD by same author/narrator and it's great to study when I go to bed or in the morning. Plays great in my CD/DVD standalone player. Narration is great. I'm used to the drone note in the background.

    However, this is a common complaint from iTunes downloads from audible, the chapters download in _alphabetical order_. The Book was not written with Acts as the first book. No matter what you do in iTunes it is this way. A major nuisance. What you have to do is make a "playlist" and put all the books in it then rearrange the books in Biblical order. This confuses iTunes since you have the book in audiobooks out-of-order but in a the correct order in the playlist. iTunes will, in most cases, drop the entire playlist (trust me, I've done this several times now having spent hours trying to keep the playlist in the correct oder). I called apple support and they have no cure other than what I've done. However, when you sync your iPod Touch (in my case), the playlist disappears (the software doesn't recognize one order in "audiobooks" library and the playlist in my device. A major pain. I emailed audible regarding this problem several days ago and have gotten no response, so I will probably be cancelling due to this non-response.

    Purchasers of Listener's Bible at the home website have complained and complained about this anomaly but get no response from Fellowship for the Performing Arts or a "what can I do" response (if any). I believe it's the software (iTunes) since there is no Part number for the books for the program to refer to in order to get the books Genesis-Revelation. Now you _could_ number the book sections in number order but that could be risky as well. Be aware of this if you download for iTunes. It will be all out-of-order in your audiobooks library. Caveat emptor on this one...

    Other than that, I gave a lot of stars for this because it's a valiant and coherent reading of the Bible. Get it for CD (mp3) is my recommendation and forget iTunes (a crappy program to begin with and their updates are worse than before).
