Dr. Bill Creasy of Logos Bible Study uses a literary, historical approach to examine and enliven the bible for modern listeners. Dr. Creasy draws on his studies, travels, and personal anecdotes to depict a vivid picture of the works of scripture. Somewhere between a sermon and a college lecture, he delivers these audiobooks with authority but a pleasantly friendly voice and a touch of fun, using contemporary references.
Of the 603,550 fighting aged counted in the census at Mount Sinai only two, Joshua and Caleb, entered the promised land. Even Moses died before entering Canaan and The Book of Deuteronomy, the last of the Jewish Torah, is Moses’ relating God’s promise of this land to the Jews before he dies.
In the Bible’s longest soliloquy, Moses imparts his final thoughts to the people of Israel. Deuteronomy is not a “repetition” of the Law, but a retelling of it to a new audience, on the backside of 40 years of experience. Join Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy as we listen to Moses address a new generation of God’s people on the plains of Jericho.

I also posted this on Amazon.com. This series contains the audio from class lectures by Dr. Bill Creasy.
Dr. Creasy covers each book verse-by-verse, providing context to the material by explaining other passages in the Bible that may relate to a passage under study, with descriptions of corresponding historical events and the geography and their relationship to the passage, as well as anecdotes from his travels or study. I find it extremely helpful to study the Bible in context with geography and history.
As explained in the opening lesson on Genesis, this study starts with Genesis in the Old Testament, then moves to Matthew in the New Testament, then Exodus and Leviticus in the Old Testament, then back to Mark in the New Testament, and so on. Dr. Creasy does this because 1) if covered in weekly segments, as done in his class, it would be in year 5 before he got to Matthew, and 2) to help show the relationship between Old Testament and New Testament.
Deuteronomy is the eighth in the Logos Bible Study series, preceded by Luke and followed by John. Deuteronomy has 34 chapters, and the study is comprised of 10 lessons. Total time - 6 hours, 43 minutes.

How can you love just one book of the Bible when the author can bring the life and times to life. However, I may not always agree with the theology . It is nice to see another perspective.
Yes, many other performances. This performance was consistent with the authors performance in previous recordings.
Yes! To any student of the bible
He is a great story teller. I would read a passage of scripture then hear Bill's take on the same passage. I would then have to reread it with his insight instilled in me.
