    ""Go-to-everyday" Bible fav"
    Would you listen to The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) again? Why?

    Again & again. Easy to listen and fairly intuitive operation. No distracting music or sound effects. Just straight-forward Bible text being read by a pleasant, non-theatrical, American(?) voice. Most technical issues fixed, improved. Not much in the way of instruction. Just figure it out & go. Most of the technical operational issues now resolved. Like it a lot


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)?

    Being lost to the narrative in a 3-D Biblical event as though I were there at that very moment in a Judaen desert with the story's participants. Doesn't happen often enough with our daily distractions of life in general.


    Have you listened to any of Dale McConachie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    N/A


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Occasionally am surprised by an event, location, - whatever - that I had not noticed in my long previous Bible-reading history. Enjoyable to rewind, and do-over (& over) in those intriguing spots of narrative


    Any additional comments?

    Big fan of this audio edition! Still some glitches. Not perfect, but definitely the best for me at this time.

    "Chapters unknown "

    I feel let down by the production people. The Holy Bible should, in my opinion, have been broken down into 66 books along with the chapter divisions as they can be found in the print and e book formats. I am undertaking to solve that on my copy by creating my own bookmarks and anotations.
    I encourage all audiobook producers to get it right the first time.

    "Great Valuable Tool"

    This is a great tool for multi-tasking. I get so much more study done and get through more passages by listening. It's even nice to read along to as it helps me keep focused. The only thing I wish was that the chapters would be labeled by the title of the bible books they contain. The good thing of course is that it always starts where you leave off but if you want to go to a different book you have to memorize which chapter contains which books. If you want to find a specific verse that takes a little more searching. The narration was good and accurate. The best feature I like is the different speeds you can set the narration on. You can listen to parts you are more familiar with faster and parts you want to study more in-depth more slowly. Overall, a good value for being able to get through more material faster.

    "I love it!"

    A clear, easy to understand Bible. The narrator was absolutely the best I have ever heard . The product worked well. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars for performance was that the "chapters" the book is broken down into do not reference where in the Bible they correlate to. Glad I bought it; I no longer feel like my long commutes are time wasted
