    "Listening is Like Being There"

    If you ever wondered how you could get through 2-3 more chapters, this rendition is for you! First of all, chapter numbers are not read. I got lost in the narration, and had to pull myself away after about ten chapters. It's like listening to a movie complete with sound effects, and music that adds to the atmosphere. This recording even makes Leviticus and the Geneologies come alive! From animal sounds to babies' cries, it draws you into both the dialog and the experience of the people who lived long ago. Narrators come from different racial groups which adds to the drama. It's like reading the Bible for the first time bringing freshness to dry parched souls, and music to the ears. Be prepared to laugh, and cry, and be transformed by the experience! This is a recording I will come back to again and again! Gone are the days of dry reading sessions! Thanks Zondervan, and thanks Audible! And thanks to all the people who made this recording possible!

    "An Exciting Audio Bible"

    I have loved listening to the Bible Experience. It's great to listen to when you are in a place where you can not read (even better when you can follow along in your Bible). They did an excellent job. I would strongly recommend it to anyone (especially those that struggle to find time to read the Bible or have a hard time understanding it).

    "Glorious"

    This phenomenal spoken word version of the Bible brings new meaning to the Good Word of the Lord, even for people that have read it before. The professional actors, the music, the background noises - it all adds up to a real "experience." This is not to be missed. They even manage to make the genealogies sound interesting with drums, use of voice, etc.

    "Best Thing Ever for an iPad"

    I bought this a couple of years ago. This is wonderful on my iPad as I can let it play me to sleep as it charges up. What a blessed way to end one day and prepare for the next!

    "Decent Recording - But Not Complete"

    The dramatic reading is good and has nice background sounds. However, this is not the complete Old Testament (as noted by other reviewers). I have listened to all 9 downloads. At the beginning section of one of the last ones there is also a section that is recorded over in a fast voice. Sounds like someone messed with the recording and Audible has not corrected it. I would not recommend Audibles version unless they correct these bugs.

    "Not Computer friendly"

    First let me say that the Bible Experience is the best Audio Bible that I have ever heard. My only problem is that when I downloaded this into Windows Media Player I did not realize that it would be formatted into 9 parts, w/o books or chapters shown.

    Because of this you will have to forward through each part searching until you hear something that alerts you that it may be the book that you are looking for. Because I am an avid bible reader & like to read along w/the narrater this has seriously impacted my enjoyment of listening to this audio book on my computer. For those who just want to listen straight thru will enjoy this.

    "Love drama, but disappointed in lack of bookmarks"

    I love the drama of this recording, but I was very disappointed that it is not divided into parts by the books. If I had known this I would have though twice about using credits for this and would have bought each book separately or at least only the books I was interested.

    "so far so good"

    This is a very exciting listen with a wonderful cast of actors. The only problem is there is a lot of background noise, ie; rushing water, birds, animals, etc... which makes it a little difficult to focus on the words.

    "Amazing Production"

    The Inspired By Bible Experience is probably the most significant and important work ever committed to audio. This is no mere audio bible but an epic 65 hour drama: a product worthy of Hollywood. I cannot praise this work too highly. The cast are all African-Americans including the cream of the acting fraternity. I don't normally like American audio due to the all too common Texan drawl however these voices are superb. I'm waiting for Audible to release the New Testament which is already available in the shops at an exhorbitant price. The greatest audio production ever. Buy a TNIV XL 'hardcopy' and read along.

    "Good But Could Be Fantastic"

    Hi folks,



    Well the product needs no introduction. It's the word of God after all.



    I have been listening to this consitently and love the change in character voices rather than one monotonous voice all the way through. There is however a lot of background noises for effect like running water or crowds murmuring as the characters speak. This was really distracting at first as I couldn't concentrate on the actual word but after half an hour or so I got used to it and could filter it out.



    My biggest gripe, and it really is a shame cause there has been a lot of work been put into this, is the chapters and books are not separated on the audio. In other words if you wanted to skip tracks to Chapter 12 in Genesis from Chapter 1, you can't simply select the next track to 2, 3, 4, 5..... and so on. Instead it's a laborious task of searching using fast forward which is not practical.



    However, if your intention is to simply listen to the audio systematically and not use it for study purposes then i can highly recommend it. If like me you are studying and want to hear specific books or chapters then it's really not properly set up for this. There is a way around it involving taking the audio and splitting it up manually but this takes me around 90mins per book and with 66 books that's a lot of time investment.



    Hope this helps anyone considering the purchase.



    God Bless

    Michael

    "Good but also disappointed"

    I loved the narration but wish the whole book was divided into books of the bible instead of chapters, i.e chapter 1, chapter 2 etc. This makes it difficult to find the book of the bible you want to hear!
