    "Very nicely dramatized!"

    Excellent audio quality, very nicely dramatized! I love to listen to this audiobook at bedtime. I would even say it has a musical quality - very relaxing. I would, however, voice this complaint: the audiobooks do not list which books start where or the order.

    This is definitely worth purchasing!

    "Poor Organization of Sections"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I'd be hesitant. The organization of the sections seems random and isn't marked. I would like to see the sections organized so that I could glance at the various sections and know which books of the Bible were in that section.

    "Addictive!"

    I've completed the first two parts, and am enthralled. At first, the pace seemed plodding. I tried speeding it up, but it was a bit distorted. However, after an hour or so, I was happily engrossed in the production. I wasn't sure if I would like having music and background dramatization effects, but am loving it. I've been a Bible reader all my life. It's easy to forget that the histories of the OT involved real people living these events in real time. The dramatic effects in this production have reminded me of that fact.

    The production quality is excellent. The background effects do not drown out the reading. Rather, they enhance it.

    "Love listening to the OT"
    If you could sum up The Word of Promise Audio Bible Old Testament NKJV in three words, what would they be?

    Enlightening, Confusing, Surprising


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    God of course


    Did the narrator do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes all but Richard Dryfus who played Moses. I doubt he even read the text before he read it. He was very unbelievable and boring, unfortunatly Moses has a lot to say. I understand the producers wanted a big name to help get attention but Richard Dryfuss was not a good choice at all.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Don't think that is possible its too big and too many hours.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you for making the OT come alive. Hearing things I have never heard or read before. I am very happy this was produced and available.

    "New to God"

    I have just found God over the past 8 months. Wanted to start at the beginning. I have spent the past 3 months listening to this book 1 hour every day. I will admit a lot of this was hard to grasp for someone with little understanding of God and the bible. I will say this book was very enjoyable to listen to. Only wish it were easier to keep track of the chapters. Impossible to just look up any certain story.

    "This REALLY needs to be indexed"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The performances, music and sound effects are great and provide a vivid and wonderful recitation of the bible BUT there is no way to find the books or verses short of spending a lot of time guessing or book marking sections once you find them. The addition of indexing the sections would make this an excellent audiobook but without it finding sections is extremely frustrating.

    "Inspirational"

    I can make no comment on the content as for me it is Holy Scripture. However, whilst the NKJV would not be my first choice of (Bible) translation, of which I have several, this is certainly by far my favourite audio Bible. The balance between voice and backing music (and sound effects) is right and the voices are very clear. Personally I would have preferred it if the narrator had given the chapter number at the start of each chapter but this does not detract from the overall quality of this superb production.
