    Hear God's written Word spoken, period. Thomas Nelson introduces the NKJV Voice Only Audio Bible. Narrated by Bob Sourer, you can hear just the Word of God, from beginning to end, Genesis to Revelation, through the voice of a master storyteller. In Luke 4:4, Jesus said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.'"

    Story

    I have both this Bible and the dramatized one. I like this one much better. I find this one easier to navigate than the dramatized version. Here is how the books are arranged:

    Part 1 – Genesis, Exodus
    Part 2 – Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy
    Part 3 – Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel
    Part 4 – 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, 2 Kings
    Part 5 – 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles
    Part 6 – Ezra, Nehemiah, Ester, Job
    Part 7 – Psalm 1-75
    Part 8 – Psalm 76-150
    Part 9 – Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon
    Part 10 - Isaiah
    Part 11 – Jeremiah, Lamentations
    Part 12 – Ezekiel, Daniel, Hosea
    Part 13 – Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah,
    Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi
    Part 14 – Matthew, Mark, Luke, John
    Part 15 – Acts, Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians
    Part 16 – Philippians, Colossians, 1 Thessalonians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 Timothy,
    2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews, James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter,
    1 John, 2 John, 3 John, Jude, Revelation

    If you are looking for a specific chapter, each chapter is it's own "chapter" and when you select a chapter it will always tell you what book you are in. For example, if I download part 8 and I want to listen to Psalm 139, it is in chapter 64. When I press "play" it will begin with the words "Psalm 139." It is nice that it always tells you what book you are in!

    The narrator isn't the most exciting, but he does a decent job and I don't mind listening to him. It is nice to have an audio version to listen to from time to time. I am very appreciative of people who have taken the time to read the Bible for audio (especially since they have to pronounce all of those names!!)

    Happy listening!!

    Story

    I used this in my classroom for Bible class at the Christian school I worked at. The kids loved it because it made them think they were listening to a movie. It is quite entertaining and interesting. My only problem with it is that it leaves out some words, like "he said" or "John replied." I know these are small, seemingly insignificant words, but without them, this Bible is not complete, it is slightly abridged.

    Thoughts for Young Men, by J. C. Ryle, is a short yet passionate appeal that, a hundred years after it was written, remains relevant for today. Replete with warnings, exhortations, and instruction about this life's many trials, temptations, and common pitfalls, Thoughts for Young Men is biblical, practical, timeless, and wise. Ryle covers four great temptations that plague most young men: sloth, lust, love of pleasure, and peer pressure.

    I know that the title says "for Young Men." However, the advice that is given by Mr. Ryle is excellent advice for ALL people. Mr. Ryle uses tons of scripture to make his points. The book was written in the 1800's, but the writing is very easy to read and understand. The advice is also very Godly and relevant in any generation. I will read/listen this one again and will pass it on to the young people in my life.

    Story

    I anxiously awaited the release of this book. I've listened to all of Mr. Rubart's other books, with Rooms being my favorite. I love hearing Mr. Rubart narrate his own books. I think he does a great job!

    I was disappointed in this book. It is about spiritual warfare, but it goes to a level that is beyond my comfort zone or doctrinal beliefs. Mr. Rubart did try to use scripture throughout the book to back up the plot, but it didn't work for me because I felt that they were taken out of context. After listening to the author's note at the end of the book, I understand why he did things as he did in his book. He made some valid points about how numbed or blinded we are in today's society towards the spiritual stuff going on around us. I just didn't like how he chose to manifest that awareness in this book. His characters travel into people's souls. Now, they were there to do good, but I felt that what they were doing was part of the Holy Spirit's job.

    I would suspect that if you are a person who liked "The Shack" you will probably like this book. I hated "The Shack" so much that I refused to finish it. I won't be listening to any more books in this series. The topic presented as it was just doesn't interest me.

    This is the 3rd installment in the Jaguar Stones series. There is a new narrator this time around, but he still did an excellent job. This is a great series for kids, although I'm an adult and I enjoy it, too. Is is funny and it's hard to put it down. Lots of humor that the kids will enjoy. I highly recommend it!

    Over 100 years ago, Reverend Charles Sheldon stepped up to the pulpit to deliver a sermon to his little flock of Congregationalists. Little did he know that his humble parable would evolve into a novel that would be published in 45 languages and affect the lives of at least 15 million people. A desperate, unemployed printer, looking for help in the mythical town of Raymond, is ignored until he’s on the verge of dying. His last words, as he collapses in front of a church congregation, point out the difference between believing in Christianity and actually living it.

    The true issue is not "What Would Jesus Do?" but "What Think Ye of Christ?"
    I loved this book when I was in high school 25 years ago, but after reading it again this week, I can honestly say it's not on my list of books to re-read ever again. I felt the premise of the book was based on works, not on who Christ is and what He did. I don't think the book focused enough on Christ's life and example as shown to us in the Gospels. The characters would have thought and acted differently if they had actually followed Christ's example. As I said, the more important question is "What Think Ye of Christ?" That's just my opinion.

    In this follow-up to Austenland, Charlotte Kinder is eager to escape the numbness she feels after her divorce. Deciding to get away, she visits the Regency-themed Pembrook Park resort in England, where talented actors set the perfect scene. But with everyone playing a role, it’s hard to distinguish reality from fantasy. So when Charlotte’s heart stirs, she wonders if she’s simply caught up in the experience - or if her ability to feel is finally returning.

    I really liked this book! It was similar to Austenland in that it was set in an Austenland estate, but the cast, characters, and circumstances were very different. This book made me laugh out loud in several points. I don't think I've read a Shannon Hale book that I have disliked and I'm glad that this one didn't disappoint! I recommend it highly!

Though they are strangers, Ty knows he can help - protecting the innocent is what he does best.

    This is the third Charles Martin book that I've read. I thoroughly enjoyed the other two, I didn't enjoy this one as much. Well, I enjoyed the ethics, morals, and values of the Texas Rangers and cowboys, but I really didn't like the female adult characters in this book. I really didn't think that either one was worth hanging around. Neither woman truly understood Ty, they both wanted to change him.

    Fourteen-year-old Sherlock Holmes knows that Amyus Crowe, his mysterious American tutor, has some dark secrets. But he didn’t expect to find John Wilkes Booth, the notorious assassin, apparently alive and well in England - and Crowe somehow mixed up in it. When no one will tell you the truth, sometimes you have to risk all to discover it for yourself. And so begins an adventure that will take Sherlock across the Atlantic, to the center of a deadly web - where a friend is in peril and a defeated army threatens to rise again.

    I loved the first book in this series. This book was even better! It's adventure and mystery. It's also appropriate for all ages. I understand why it is endorsed by the Sherlock Holmes people. It's a great story about what events happened in Sherlock's teen years that shaped him into the great detective that he becomes.
