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!
No Music is Great!
Not that kind of story.
Not that kind of story
Not that kind of Story.
I tried a Bible reading that had music in the background and it was terrible. It would lull me to sleep as I was listening or it would be inappropriete at certain points. This reading helps you just focus on the words spoken and the contents.
Not possible! It's the Bible!
I love Christian movies and stories, but the problem is the melodrama - overacting and the constant music always takes away from the stories. As much as I appreciate actors playing the parts of the Bible characters, the overacting and constant music drives me nuts. This version is great because it's just narrated and at least for me, I'm getting a lot more from the story, able to listen for longer periods, and not getting annoyed by all the background noise.
If you like the acting and music, this isn't the version for you, but if you're like me and just want the story, then this is probably a good version for you.
Recording is great, but organization is horrible. There are 16 parts where each contain multiple books. How to find the book or chapter or identify the last fragment which I've heard yesterday?
All audio versions I know are very easy to navigate in this one... no navigation.
I have lost few dollars to understand: "quality" of audible.com is not for me.
