    "Good to Have Bible on Audio"

    Having read the Bible launching it on audio is a great way to get to know its content in a different pleasant perspective largely thanks to the excellent narrator Mr. Dick Hill.
    The advantage of the original paper Bible is its easy quick reference consulting, and it has the feel; of having in our hands a book. A Bible! Nothing will ever replace that!
    The advantage of audio Bible is it is easy to listen any time you want and easy portability, just a simple MP3 player or mobile phone will do it!
    For those who hate to read no more excuses for not knowing the bible.

    "Chapters"

    I enjoy this version of the Bible. I do not believe it sounds like a computer generated voice and enjoy the voice it has great listening quality. The only thing I wish is that there was an easy way to find a book, chapter and verse. Maybe another time!

    "Excellent narration; not an easy translation"

    Whatever its other merits - and I'm not a Biblical scholar, so I can't judge from that standpoint - the NASB is not the easiest translation to follow on audio. The vocabulary isn't archaic, but the syntax is sometimes a little gnarled, and some names (like "Lo-Ruhamah" in Hosea) are translated only in the notes, which of course don't make it into the audiobook. Having a hardcopy at hand to follow along helps, but only partly.

    Dick Hill, on the other hand, is an excellent narrator. His voice is a very pleasing baritone, and he reads rhythmically and expressively. One point worthy of note here is that the producers decided to include the subheadings in the reading. These short tags, inserted by most Bible publishers to break up and clarify the text, actually do aid in comprehension when listening, and I wish more audiobook publishers made a practice of doing this in their editions of the Bible. Hill is particularly effective at keeping these separate from the text itself.

    The sound quality is excellent in the new enhanced format. Not all parts of the title are available yet in enhanced format, but most of the Old Testament (at least up through Ezekiel) is available in enhanced format as of this writing.

    "Can't navigate at all....very inconvenient"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a review of the navigation for this audio Bible, not the Bible itself which gets a enthusiastic 5 stars.
    There is no was to navigate this Bible. The Bible is a very large book made up of 66 smaller books each with many chapters. It can be read from cover to cover, but many people prefer to study particular books. With this audio book there is basically 14 different parts to the Bible, each being 5-7ish hours long with no way of telling which one you are going to listen to until you start. I'm going to try to return this Bible and look for an audio bible where I can choose where in the Bible I want to start listening.

    "Its the bible"

    What can I say, its the bible and the narration was good. I did some research before hand and the NASB seems well accepted as one of the better and more accurate English translations currently available.

    This fits my purposes, which is to try and finally get through the whole thing. Since I'm just trying to have a proper run through hitting certain sections is not an issue. If you are thinking of using this as a general resource don't, its just kind of silly idea in the first place, that's what book style bibles are for.

    However, if you are one of the many who have never managed to find the time to give the full thing a proper read/listen, and you'd like that commute time to mean something for once, then this is a good option.

    "No book, chapter or verse direct access."

    I enjoy the audible bible, but it is frustrating that I have to guess which of the 14 Parts contains the book, chapter or verse I may want to listen to. An important upgrade of this audible would be to add the ability to go directly to book, chapter and verse. The bible is not a book that is read as a novel, from beginning to end, by almost anybody. It is a book that is studied by sections or individual books, by chapter and/or verse. That is really what I was looking for when I bought it. I enjoy listening, the reading is done well, but this lack of ability to navigate the bible would have me returning it for a refund if that were possible, and trying another approach.

    "I love my bible..."

    The NASB is a great bible translation. The narration is of good quality. Unfortunately audible divided the audio presentation is such a way it is nearly impossible to find a particular book or chapter in the presentation.

    Unless you intend to use this as a listen from beginning to end don't get it. If you would like to be able to find books and chapters select a different presentation on audible.

    "Wish I knew before buying!"

    I only listened for a minute and was disappointed with the quality of this Bible. It sounds like a computer generated voice.
    However, my BIGGEST problem is with how this plays on my Sansa Fuze. I'm new to Audible and the Sansa, but have many audio Bibles on my Treo 755p smartphone. This Bible downloads in 14 lonnngg sections, and when you want to listen, you DO NOT HAVE THE OPTION TO FIND A SPECIFIC BOOK, CHAPTER, AND/OR VERSE!!!
    On all my smartphone Bibles, I have that option!
    This is absolutely ABSURD to have to click play, and find that you are lost in over 7 hours of audio and wouldn't know where you are!
    This is NOT for those who want to use the audio as a tool for a daily Bible reading schedule!!
    Especially if your schedule requires you to read a little from certain OT books and a little from NT books!
    Impossible!!
    Be forewarned before buying this Bible from Audible!
    I am out a free book now, and will go back to listening on my smartphone. It would be nice to be able to use my mp3 player for all audio, but I guess that's not going to happen!

    "hard to search for scriptures"

    The way it is divided into sections don't help in finding the old or new testament or even certain scriptures I don't recommend this to anyone who wants to study the Bible
