It's the TRUTH
Yes but it would take a very long one sitting. Gen-Rev is a very long sit.
For me this has been the best audio Bible so far.
It's not the "dramatic rendition" that some are. It allows you to decide the emotions that are being felt by those on the scene. For me that's important. For instance my version of John the baptist may not be like others.
If your looking for dramatic this is not it. If you want to hear a good reader read you the Bible consistently the same without being dry. This is it.
The reading is good. The scripture must be narrated according to punctuation - like all reading it's key to understanding. This recording is, for the most part, true to the punctuation. However, the primary fault is navigation -- selecting what you want to listen to. You really don't know where you are in the book. It's most annoying.
This question is irrelevant to this book in my opinion.
Again, irrelevant IMO.
Yes, I've watched most of the Bible movies.
The reading is good.

No sound effects or music.
How can you just pick one character.
This was a good production of the Bible.
Price is its good point.
I bought it because of price and his performance.
Since the book downloads in multiple icons there should be a way to know which books of the Bible are covered by each icon!
The is the best audio bible I've heard. No drama with background noise. No English accent as though I were listening to an opera. Just well narrated.
It does is not "better" than the print version, but it did allow me to listen to the whole book in just a few days, while I did other things (especially through a lot of the Old Testament). Now I can go back and study the books/sections in print that I need/want to study. It was nice to review the whole book again though.
My only preference would have been that it be broken up into some smaller pieces. Sometimes I would not turn off my mp3 player completely and it would play to the end or when the battery died (this long!). Luckily I know the story so I knew how far to rewind it, but that might not be the case for everyone. The sound quality is excellent. I have impaired hearing so I appreciate that the sound was clear and not muffled like some audio books I've listened to.
uh.. let me think.. hm..Jesus? Yes.. I think so. But God was an important contributing character.. :-)
"In the beginning..."
Yes.. "He" often makes me laugh and sometimes cry. God has a sense of humor.
Loved the book. Great narrator!
Bob Souer did an excellent job. His voice has a relaxed vocal pitch that makes you listen for hours. Thank you Audible.
Do not like that the titles of the Books in the Bible are not on the front cover of the audible books. Enjoyable to listen too, clear voice.
Served two combat tours in Vietnam all along the DMZ with the UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS from there was selected for Marine Barracks 8th & I
i found that the audio version is far better then to sit and read the Bible as I felt I got more out of it
It is the word of God as spoken by man
I don't beleve I had a favorite
The whole bible is moving
Going through the bible more than once is important because the 2nd time or 3rd time you learn more. This audio bible is so easy to follow and understand and read perfectly.
It's the Bible
You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” ― C.S. Lewis
Clearly anunciated and very easy to follow audio bible. With no added music or special effects. I just lay back and let the words flow over me untill i find peaceful sleep.
I still think the TNIV bible is the best voiced bible but this one runs a close second. And the NKJV is a better translation.
Pure truth for all who can hear.
