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.
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!
Yes, a blessing every time.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The most read and most popular book the world has ever seen, The Bible is a must-read for everyone...both young and old, man and woman. Nothing really compares to its scope, depth, and variety. Stop hesitating. Read. It.
Bob's voice is pleasant & not distracting. I listen at 3/4 speed & try to concentrate. It's like a breathe of fresh air... Review by Rick Lightbody, Oroville, CA. Feb 2, 2017
The narration is perfect and I really love that, but I absolutely hate that I have to go through them to find a certain book. No index or a way to know unless you listen to beginning.
"Very easy to listen"
The voice is easy to listen, and I enjoy this audible. I wanted to read the old testament for a long time, but never had the time or will, this audible provided me with all the stories and I made comments and annotations.It had several books and each book many chapters, but the books are not named. I made annotations, maybe a next revision can name the individual books, I am aware no audible is naming chapters.Great voice and good flow you can listen while you do any work.
yes, I already did
The diction is perfect and I could investigate more on the names and places in the bible, very mellow still melodious
"Great quality, very, very, poor Audible labeling"
The bible is not a new book, so i was disappointed to find that none of the chapters or books of the bible are actually labelled, so you couldn't look for psalm 1 for example, it could be chapter 88 of that one downloaded section (of many sections). This make it nearly impossible to navigate. I would have returned it if this option was available.
Bob Souer was fantastic and my review is in no way a reflection of the quality/delivery of the Audio narration, which is fantastic and worth buying.
As i can't navigate this audio book - its been a challenge to find the appropriate chapters i'm looking for; so i can't say if there is anything to be cut or edited.
I would have preferred to have the different books separated. To make it easier to find specific Scriptures. However the narration is quite good.
