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.
Clearly Well Read
It's God's Word
He reads it simply and swell - not coloring it with unnecessary dramitization that distracts from what the text says.
For that see the also well done - World of Promise Audio Bible
If you're looking for God's Word simply and clearly read - this is it.
No root-menus. You cannot go from chapter to chapter, at least on my device. Overall, a waste of money.
It was the Bible.
Nearly no inflection. just the facts, ma'am.
This is a straight reading of the Old Testament. (Compared with the dramatized versions available.) The audio quality is good, and this is a great way to "get the big picture" of what the Bible is saying.
However, I do wish there was some way to find chapter and verse. It comes in 16 files, each "part 1," "part 2," etc. There is no indicator what books of the Bible are in these parts. I do know for certain that part 1 includes all of Genesis, and at least part of Exodus, because that's where I am in my listening.
I've been using this on the Kindle, and just listening straight thru, starting where I last stopped. My idea is to burn these files to CD so I can at least label the CDs with which book of the Bible it is, and possibly even what chapters are included. Not sure I'll do this, as it will require about 48 CD's!
Ya know, I can't help thinking that one really would expect a rock to be made to a person's specs. That being said, a secular view point would be one complaint after another. A Christian view point would be thankful that God provided man with the intelligence of creating an electronic Bible to be able to use at a moments notice with the God given technology produced by man. My viewpoint is nothing short of awsome. This is really a Blessing! I personalized it by renaming the downloaded files to be a little more convienant to me and I labeled my Bible in book form with tracks and times of the audio version. Only took a couple seconds to do as I was listening to this awsome gift from God. To the people who digitized it to an audible book, May God Bless you!
Although I'm not a huge fan of this narrator, I can get past it. He does a fine job, and is pleasant enough on the ears. My only real issue is not with this book, per se, but for bibles on audible in general. It's so had to track down specific sections within the Bible. I would use it much more, if at least sections were labeled with which books/chapters they cover. Seems like that would be an easy fix.
I love the speaker and quality, but when I purchased, I assumed it would be one download like everything else I have, even things as long as this. When the transfer was complete, I saw 16 identical pictures with no way of telling which was which, except to click and back out of each file. It would be perfect if there was just some organization to let the listener know with ease where s/he is. If there is ever an update to correct this, I would gladly give 5 stars.
I like Bob Souers' voice best when listening to the Bible. Speed control is a must. Because without it, it's much too fast and alot will be missed. I enjoy about a 50% or more slow down speed.
The Bible is the greatest book ever written, The word of God. a must read for all. The audio version of the Bible The Word of God is the best way for those who can't read or have a hard time reading who want to know our Lord Jesus Christ son of God, King of Kings and Lord of Lords
