    "Excellent narration but should be easier to search"
    What did you like best about this story?

    The Bible is a well known story. What impressed me most was the dramatic narration. Voices are well chosen. Background music & sound effects are good as well.


    What three words best describe the narrator’s performance?

    Excellent, appropriate, dramatic


    Any additional comments?

    Understandably, this audio book is downloaded in several parts. It is very disappointing that you cannot tell which section you are about to hear until you start playing. Since the Bible is not just one book but a compilation of books, each section should be appropriately labelled so the listener can select which book of the Bible they want to hear. Since each section contains more than one books or a only a part of a book, the chapters should state clearly which chapter of what book is being played; for example, ' Amos chapter 2'; then when the reading moves to another book in the same section, ' Obadiah Chapter 1 etc. People do not usually read the Bible from beginning to end so it is important that the listener is able to go to a particular chapter of the particular book they want to hear. It would be great if they could go to an actual verse if this would not detract from the audio quality which is excellent. Even if the listener wanted to listen to this audio Bible from beginning to end sequentially it would be a challenge as each section has exactly the same cover. One would have to do a thorough search to find the section one was listening to before. I realize if you select list by title the different sections are listed in order but one cannot tell what books of the Bible are in each section as mentioned earlier. I certainly hope later versions of this Audio Bible will make improvements in this area. This version has the potential to be an excellent audio book.

    "Audio Bible"

    At first I thought this was a little on the slow side and not like most novels that dance right along to the end. There is nondescript music in the background, which is different. After awhile the slower pace was really nice. Unlike a novel where you wonder who did it or how it will end, I pretty much know how this book starts and ends. Truly the saying about it is all about the journey is true in this case. Enjoyed just listening and letting the book unfold as opposed to sections and stories being deliverd by a Pastor or in Suday School. Really didn't realize what and how much was in there having never really sat down and read any of the books from beginning to end much less the entire bible. Thought this was a great experience.

    "Books as Chapters issue solved!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of NIV Audio Bible (Dramatized) to be better than the print version?

    no. both handle different applications. This is a silly question!


    Any additional comments?

    A provided PDF clearly maps each book of the Bible to the corresponding Audible audiobook 'Part' so browsing to a specific book of the Bible is manageable. Glad to see this is handled; first NIV version I've seen to handle the Audible 'Parts' separation issues.

    "Hard to search"
    Any additional comments?

    I like the narration but the books I want to listen to are hard to find. I would be nice or even necessary to label so you can find each book easier.

    It really would be helpful to have a better way to search for what you are looking for. I don't know how you would do it, but it would have been nice. Still, this audio book is highly recommended.

    "Would be better if sorted by books not chapters"
    What did you like best about NIV Audio Bible (Dramatized)? What did you like least?

    The Holy Bible doesn't need its own ratings or reviews. However this version of it does. It is well narated and remains a wonderful story. Still there is so much of it that you can only download a section at a time and it doesnt download easily on my device. Also, if you are looking for a particular book or reference in the Bible, you have to take your chances about which section to download to find it. It would be better if the sections were divided into the books of the Bible instead of chapters as with any other book.

    "The Bible coming to life"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    In today's media frenzied world it becomes harder for people to sit down and read the bible at times. This audio book is not only convenient, but the dramatized version here makes it truly come to life! From hearing the noises of the birds during Noah's story to the portrayal of God's voice... Truly immersing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of NIV Audio Bible (Dramatized)?

    I haven't yet finished even half of it yet, but I'm very well working on getting there! So far I'd have to say the part between God, Adam, and Eve was a highlight--The books of John and part of Revelation up to where I've left off.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When God took Enoch and Elijah up to Heaven without letting them suffer longer from the earth nor feel the pain of death.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was overjoyed with tears to not only know these words true, but to hear them so vividly brought to life. It truly holds a strong impact to those who may have the joy of hearing it.

    "Good version but impossible to navigate"
    Any additional comments?

    An otherwise great audio version of the study bible brought to market without labeling the chapters. You will find this frustrating, you will become aggravated, and ultimately will discontinue using it for a resource. A shame really...I'm not sure what reasoning the publisher could have had for not labeling the chapters.
