      "Heavenly Production!"

      I've always considered dramatized versions of Scripture cheesy and unworthy of The Word despite the good intentions. But this production throws that all out the window.

      Genesis 1-4 held me, my wife, and 9 year old son spell bound. My son wanted to go all night.

      This is one fantastic production. The sound effects, Michael York's narration, the music...all of it combined make a fantastic impact on the movie in your mind. This is a must have.

      I did notice that not every word was narrated, but any time that happened it was pretty irrelevant. It was stuff like "and the Lord said to..."; it wasn't needed because you know God was speaking to Eve. It's a nitpick that really doesn't take away from the production, but is worth noting if your looking to hear every single solitary NKJV word.

      Have a listen to the sample. If it peaks your interest and you think you may enjoy listening to it, go with that instinct. You WILL NO be disappointed.

      "one I was looking for"

      Years ago I worked with a wonderful nurse who had an audioversion of the Bible that she listened to. It was fantastic. Since then I've on and off tried to find that version. I bought a version on CD's and ended up taking them back as it just wasn't "it". This is the version I've been looking for. It isn't just a person reading the Bible, there is light music in the background that correlates to the text. The music would not be objectionable by anyone. The reading is very good and I love listening to the Bible being "read" to me. The only drawback is that you can't go to Hebrews or John, or any other book. The whole Bible is divided into 17 sections and you can go to one of those sections and then fast forward to where you want. On the Kindle though if you stop it will remember where you were and start there again next time, so it's not bad. It doesn't take the place of having a written Bible, but it is a wonderful way to hear the Word of God.

      "Great Buy"

      I debated and debated buying this. It was not at all how I imagined it, it is 100 times better. Really brings the bible to life. It is broken into parts which can make it hard if you are looking for a specific bible story. But other than that it's really really neat. I love it!

      "Epic Production"

      After spending the last 5 months listening to the Word of Promise Audio Bible every day in the car, I am I'm happy I got through it though sad it is over. While there are definitely areas it could have used improvement, but there is no way I could give less than 5 stars for such an elegant production. Getting through most of the Old Testament was a challenge -- this is mostly a function of the material not the fault of the narrators; the one exception was Psalms which I thought was poorly narrated. The New Testament was executed flawlessly. I'd recommend this to anybody who has struggled to read the Bible and is a captive audience trying to make the best of empty time (commuting in traffic for me).

      "Awful"

      Absolutely horrible. First of all the melodramatic narration is reprehensible. The narration is terrible and if that is not enough music is played in the back ground to further annoy one into a mood highly unlikely to enjoy listening to the Bible. I wanted a well narrated Bible to enjoy not a pathetic attempt at play acting the scripture by Hollywood’s finest. What a waste of my credit. If you are looking for a simple easy to follow reading this is not for you. If you’re into ridiculous melodrama then have at it.

      "Brings the Bible to life"

      I've purchased other audio Bibles but this Word of Promise Audio Bible truly brings God's word to life in a new way. This fully dramatized version draws you into the culture and gives a different perspective on the scriptures with sounds of the times in the background and the actors adding voice emphasis to the text. Absolutely recommend this to anyone who finds it hard to make time to sit down and read their Bible...I spend much time each day "chauffeuring" my children to school and various events...listening to the Word of Promise audio Bible helps put purpose in my day...perfect for a multi-tasking mom!
