This is a good translation of the New Testament, and it is the one used in Catholic liturgies in the USA, which makes it especially useful to me.
The narration is excellent: pace, expressiveness.
There are two drawbacks. Audible inhalations detract from the quality of the narration, and section headings are read along with the biblical text. I find the latter to be especially distracting.
I listened to this audiobook because I had heard that some consider "Anna Karenina" to be the greatest novel ever written. It was beautifully narrated, very pleasant and engaging. Some parts were absolutely enthralling. Tolstoy has a genius for describing deep, inner human drives and motives. A couple of parts were tedious (perhaps inevitable in any work this length). On the whole, it was beautiful, and I enjoyed the unexpected ending of the whole story.
Exciting, suspenseful, and soothing. This was my first Koontz book. It will not be my last. I loved the story and the narration.
