I have both this Bible and the dramatized one. I like this one much better. I find this one easier to navigate than the dramatized version. Here is how the books are arranged:
Part 1 – Genesis, Exodus
Part 2 – Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy
Part 3 – Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel
Part 4 – 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, 2 Kings
Part 5 – 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles
Part 6 – Ezra, Nehemiah, Ester, Job
Part 7 – Psalm 1-75
Part 8 – Psalm 76-150
Part 9 – Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon
Part 10 - Isaiah
Part 11 – Jeremiah, Lamentations
Part 12 – Ezekiel, Daniel, Hosea
Part 13 – Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah,
Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi
Part 14 – Matthew, Mark, Luke, John
Part 15 – Acts, Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians
Part 16 – Philippians, Colossians, 1 Thessalonians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 Timothy,
2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews, James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter,
1 John, 2 John, 3 John, Jude, Revelation
If you are looking for a specific chapter, each chapter is it's own "chapter" and when you select a chapter it will always tell you what book you are in. For example, if I download part 8 and I want to listen to Psalm 139, it is in chapter 64. When I press "play" it will begin with the words "Psalm 139." It is nice that it always tells you what book you are in!
The narrator isn't the most exciting, but he does a decent job and I don't mind listening to him. It is nice to have an audio version to listen to from time to time. I am very appreciative of people who have taken the time to read the Bible for audio (especially since they have to pronounce all of those names!!)
This is a great recording, but is organizationally irritating. There are 16 parts where each contain multiple books. Each book and chapter are announced but aren't identified in file name or by tags so finding a specific book is a bit of a chore. Naming each part with the book that starts it should have been a no-brainer. Would have been better if there were 1-1 correlation between books and parts, ie., 66 parts instead of 16.

I downloaded this for my 88 year old mother and put it on CD's for her.. She is almost bedridden and hard-of-hearing, but the volume comes through so well on this, she can easily hear AND understand it... She absolutely LOVES it and has already had many hours of enjoyment being able to lay in bed and listen to the Bible read to her... Would definitely suggest this for anyone!!
Because I've bookmarked it very well and can hear my favorite passages whenever I please.
The 'immense' job of bookmarking everything because the chapters in no way match up with the chapters of the Bible was a real pain in the rear. Everything else is great.
This is a great audio version of the NKJV Bible, but it is difficult to navigate through the Bible by Book, Chapter and Verse. The books are are lumped together within 16 sections. I re-titled all of mine to say what Part # they are followed by the first book and the last book that is read in that particular section.
I love the NKJV Bible and the narration is very well done. It is not boring, nor is it theatrical!
My extreme reaction was before this book....salvation! Praise God! He made a way where there was no way! Jesus IS THE WAY!
If you have never made Jesus the LORD (master) of your life read chapter 8 of Romans. Then read Romans 10:9-10 and pray...welcome Him into your heart so you may rule and reign with Him forever!
I appreciated the delineation of the chapters in the recording. It made advancing through the books much easier.
I'd compare it to the Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible. The NKVJ Bible is great for studying and going through the Bible for daily time with the Lord. Word of Promise is great for just sitting and enjoying.
Bob has a very nice voice to listen to. He has a nice
The price was very reasonable - only 1 credit.

No sound effects or music.
How can you just pick one character.
This was a good production of the Bible.
it was clear and concise
all of it
In the beginning God
great Author I owe him my life
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.
"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.
