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 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 idea, but I wish they had considered the cd format a little more carefully. Part 1 is the only portion that I have copied to cd, it took 6 cds and the last one only contained 11 minutes of material. I have two mp3 players, neither of which are supported, and I can't convert this to simple ,p3 to copy to my players because the material is "protected." It looks like I am either going to be wasting some cds, or only listening on my pc. This is unfortunate because I got it to listen to when I'm working outside.
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

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!!
I bought two other talking Bibles, one with a very well known actor whose voice everyone enjoys. His performance is fantastic but I sometimes can't hear him over the background music plus if I try to listen at bedtime, the music puts me to sleep. My goal was to "read" the entire Bible and I don't need the inspirational music. It's very distracting.
This version is voice only and very well done. I've never read the NKJV Bible - I'm a King James fan - but the translation is good and close to King James without the archaic language, for instance, it uses the modern term allow instead of the archaic suffer.
The other reviews are correct about the indexing being off. That's the only reason for 4 stars overall. St John, for instance, starts in the middle of what is indexed as chapter 69. It would be nice if it started on an index.
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!
