    "Why?"
    What was most disappointing about Fellowship for the Performing Arts’s story?

    Why did they arrange the books in alphabetical order? I want to listen to this in the car. I can't be fiddling with my ipod. Very disappointed and frustrated.

    "Am not satisfied"

    I am not satisfied with this selection because the sound level falls after a couple of pages of Genesis and stays all the way to the 22 verse. I do not suggest this recording.

    "Very good purchase."

    I am enjoying listening to the Bible, NIV, read by Max McLean. I'm very glad I purchased it. I have a long commute back and forth to work every day and this affords me time in God's Word that I might not otherwise get. I find listening I get as much, if not more, out of scripture because of the passive way I am receiving it. I don't have to concentrate on the written word and I don't get as distracted. The NIV is also a good version to choose b/c the language is closer to the way we speak today. I'm very pleased with my purchase.

    "I was looking for the book of Ephesians, where??"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Listener's Bible NIV to be better than the print version?

    I enjoy all the books in the Bible, in fact while driving from home to office I listen to it. It helps me complete the Bible in one year- a goal I've never completed until I bought this. But where is the book of Ephesians?

    "missing books"

    There are at least six of the books in the old testaments are mistitled - the title of the audio book does not match what's in the content, in order words, i have at least 6 duplicate books and am missing 6 books. I haven't check all the titles so I don't know how many in total I'm missing in this purchase. The reading is ok, hence 2 stars

    "It's not bad , I like his voice"

    It's not bad , I like his voice . Max McLean is Great at what he does , Just when your about to daydream he gets almost emotional and grabs you back into the bible. A truly dramatic reader.
    (but the books are not in order) so 3 stars not 4

    "Beautifully Narrated"

    Max McLean does an outstanding job of narrating the entire Bible. His talent as a storyteller is apparent as I find myself drawn in and really listening to the stories of the Bible as tells them. Mr. McLean does not waiver in his apparent dedication to present every word, chapter after chapter, with equal importance. I am grateful for this high quality presentation of the Bible. It has given me greater understanding and has brought a new and welcomed dimension to studying God's Word.

    "Great narration, poor audible file format"
    What disappointed you about The Listener's Bible NIV?

    I loved The Listeners Bible NIV. It's the audible formatting that failed.

    Max McLean's narration is very, very good. I have listened to various narrators, and I don't tire of or get distracted by Mac McLean's narration - top notch.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Excellent, top notch narration.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible's file format is simply not friendly for something like a bible. The bible is a collection of books, but audible provides you with 1 audiobook file. In iTunes on my Mac, I have a generic "Chapters" menu to pick the chapter from - any chapter from "Chapter 1" to "Chapter 1189" - wowzers, how on earth do I figure that out? I can perhaps figure out Genesis and Revelation, but that's about it for me! Terrible Audible, just Terrible. On my iPhone, I get book titles as "chapter names", that's helpful, BUT it is sorted alphabetically, with numeric chapters (e.g. 1 Kings) being at the end, and the first one being ACTS. This makes it hard to navigate to what I want to listen to.

    Audible/Amazon - please take note: I don't believe most folks will listen to audio bibles or reference materials from start to finish, or from A to Z, or from 1 to... well you get the point. Please provide SEPARATE files for separate books. So for example "Genesis" should be it's own file. Additionally, these books should be sequenced correctly, so for example perhaps you use the Disc # meta data to specify the sequence. Further to that, each book should then have Chapters within the book, so that a person could easily and accurately navigate to the *book* of Psalms, chapter 117 without taking wild guesses as to where in a 70+hr audio file that might be.

    Bah.

    In the past, audible provided me with separate "parts" - while that wasn't ideal, it let me create my own playlist with smaller groupings (e.g. "Hosea - Amos") - now I can't even do that any more. Perhaps I'll have to remove the DRM, split out the chapters, and re-combine my own audiobook... btw folks, I've successfully used iMovie 9 to convert iTunes DRM protected bibles so I can fix them for my own listening (had to do this for the Max McLean ESV version recently, which I bought through iTunes and which is published by Audible if I remember correctly). What a hassle though.

    Love the narration though, and I love being a able to listen to the bible in when going to sleep or doing mundane chores that are quiet enough, etc.

    "Wonderful!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Listener's Bible NIV the most enjoyable?

    Max McLean is by far the most enjoyable narrator for the Holy Bible.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Revelation


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first time ever making it from beginning to end of the FULL BIBLE!!! I definitely recommend listening to this easy to understand version, for those of us that are too busy to read or get bored with the monotone reading of Gods word.
