Voices are such and read slow enough that you can imagine and also meditate on His Word while listening.
I cannot tell which audio has which book of the bible. That has been only problem with me. I now got printout from Audible that says which one has which book of the bible.
Christian, middle-school teacher, horse lover and rider, grandmother, love America, hate getting old, pretty good cook.
I like this ok, but the voices of some of the characters are pretty lame...especially Moses, never even got to Jesus!
It makes the Bible more of a story with music (which is sometimes distracting) and sound effects (which are sometimes dumb).
This audio book is on one of my top favorites so far!
To hear the story of Christ and all those in the Bible come alive was so inspiring. The whole book, especially the New Testament was great!
This is a great version for travel or quiet moments with God. The various speakers really helped keep my focus. I highly recommend this!
Yes. The number of readers and production background greatly enhances listening pleasure, easy to stay engaged.
Great moments when I actually applied the truths, NKJV is easy to understand yet remains true to original script.
Multiple narrators add to listeners interest
Reaction comes from paying attention
This is best audio treatment of the Bible that I have ever listened to. The main narration is done in an excellent deep voice that embraces the words while also adding power to them. The sound effects, rather than distracting, add depth and make you feel more present as you listen. I particularly liked Richard Dreyfuss's reading of Moses -- he's a talented actor and he did a great job here. My one complaint was the reading of Esther -- she's made to sound like a sultry vixen, which completely distracts one from the power of that particular story (the real Esther was a scared teenage girl, making this a lamentable piece of poor casting). Ruth, I am happy to say, was handled very well. As for the New Testament, I felt like the reader who handled Paul did the best work -- that's very much how I imagine the real Paul might have sounded. On the whole, this work is truly a masterpiece.
The World Changer
The Word of God is amazing and stands alone. This audio book just enhances the bible listening experience with my bible in hand. I'm not a great reader, but I don't use this as an excuse to not learn the Word of God. This will help spark a desire in the Word if your thirsty for truth. Now, go change the world. Faith comes through listening-- the Word of God.
The cast did and exceptional job.
I am still listening and am excited every time I go into the app to listen to the Bible. I have never been so excited or looks forward to my time with the Word as I have been with this experience.
I am still listening so I still have many characters to discover but aim sure I will not be disappointed. Great job. I feel like I am there.
Because these characters and writers did such a great job you can truly feel the sadness or the excitement of each story. Making it easier to truly learn the Bible and it's key stories.
One thing I would improve is to give the info of what books are covered in what part. Ex, part #1 Genesis - Exodus. Or an accompanying PDF with the call out. That way I can read what I want when I want to.
Awesome Faithful Soothing
Jesus basically putting the religious leaders in their place.
Jesus explaining what and who he was sent for.
I listen to this when I go to bed, I fall asleep in the word, sleep to the word and wake up in the word, awesome!

The author Jehovah God takes all the credit but the performances, readings and musical additions are great.
The whole Bible in this format is great.
When Daniel is NOT eaten by the Lions.
It made me happy to have had the chance to listen to such a great reading.
Get this audio Bible NOW.
I love the multi-voice approach! It adds so much to each biblical character making each come alive in their own unique way. I hate how you cant find any 1 particular book of the bible or if you've forgotten which book your in you cant look it up with any ease.
Well its the bible so its amazing! But the best part it brings the books to life and you can view it as a story and a teaching.
The greatest book ever written with the greatest performance, whats not to love?
