What a great idea! I wanted to listen to the complete old testament especially and this seemed an approachable way to do. I don't share the views of the commentator and there is so much here that is speaking to s specific people in a specific time... but everyone should read The Bible at least once. What really makes this recording annoying is the trashy Muzak in in the background and the Echo Chamber for the voice of God. Certainly there are great actors that could convey authority without this trite device.
I don't know why so many recordings of the scriptures insist on sounding like the astronomy show at a planetarium--tinny space music, overly slow and deep narration, the avoidance of human inflection, and either flat or badly-acted emotion. And why, oh why, must God's voice have a mechanical echo?! If these types of scripture readings appeal to you, here is another.
Also, this is not just the bible--there are tedious and insipid introductions before every book, and no way to just skip those to get to the text itself. These introductions seem to focus more on what the scriptures should mean to you than on providing helpful historical or theological context.This is particularly frustrating if you have limited time for daily listening and are trying to get to and through the scriptures themselves. I've given it 3 stars only because the NIV is a good translation, but this particular production I would only give 1 star.
The voice on the sample is not the narrator of the text but the woman who reads the introductions only. I would not give this as a gift--I think it would turn off anyone not very committed to trying to hear scripture. For an entirely different (much more LIVING) approach to scripture recordings, try some of the ones produced in England and Scotland. Johnny Cash also did an absolutely terrific reading/recording of the whole New Testament which audible carries, it's one of my favorites.
ok i like the idea of this but, seriously an hour a day manage? thats about what the audio length breaks down to. Also if you are in seminary or bible school and getting decent grades you can probably skip the first 5 mins of commentary.
Also the way this is packaged/priced makes this a waste of credits for members better to just pay the 3 dollars or whatever each time.
Finally, to the people managing audibles listing pages can you please relist the weeks in order.
The Audible version is easier to understand and more engaging than the printed version!
Nothing I have read, seen or heard can be compared to "The Bible in 90 Days"
From the beginning to the end, the Word was clarified
Not sure if the Bible move needs a tag line
I understand the Bible much better now. I recommend this series to EVERYONE!
An audible addict:)
