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!
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.
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.
I love the voices in this book,I think it is so wonderful to listen to and follow along
I love it
Enlightening, Confusing, Surprising
God of course
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.
Don't think that is possible its too big and too many hours.
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.
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.
