This wonderful recording has the best Biblical narrator I have ever heard, on a recording or in person. He does not sound like he is reading, but inhabiting the text, giving it such nuanced meaning and depth. The background noises are a little bit distracting but still do manage to achieve the aim of sounding like real life: a squeaky door opens, a donkey brays, a legion marches past, water is poured. This interpretation of St Paul makes him a real man, and these letters his real missives. Very worthwhile, even if you have heard the NT read aloud many times before.
