      "Wonderful!"

      First let me say I was shocked that this download was only one credit!! Be that as it may this was a wonderful presentation of the Bible and well worth the investment of the 96 hours to listen to, ponder, and review. The background sounds, different voice performers, and overall production is awesome. To use a phrase it was ". . . the Word made flesh." I could see returning to this production over and over and being able to pick it up anywhere and enjoy it.

      So many great things to say but I have only one misgiving. I wish in this format there was some easy way to bookmark and return to each book for review. If there is a way please let me know.

      "slow listen"

      I had to increase the read to 1.5 to 2 times the read speed to get thru a lot of this book. I find that all of the "begets" get in the way of the history. I haven't finished this yet. Can only take it in stages.

      This audiobook is very well done. The different voices for the different characters make the story come alive with drama and interaction. The background music and sound effects are a nice touch.

      "Dissapointed"
      What disappointed you about The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV?

      The way this downloads it is impossible to just start at a certain book of the Bible. Was definitely not what I was looking for in an audio Bible and I now just use Youversion to listen to it. That said it is read in a style that is very good to listen too. I would give this 5 stars if I could choose what book I wanted to listen to.

      "Nice way to learn about christian teachings/storie"

      I have never been deep into religion, but I wanted to learn more about the stories I remember hearing growing up. I purchased this version of the Bible, and really enjoyed the performance. I know some say they like just pure narration as to not take away from the message of the story, but for me, I enjoyed the performance angle. This is in my opinion the best copy of the NKJV on audio. It takes the edge off the overwhelming idea of getting caught up on everything and anything I wasn't familiar with. I would definitely recommend this anyone looking for the same.

      The only draw back is the arrangement of the entire thing, Its kind of difficult to navigate through. I wish they would have made it a bit simpler and better outlined in chapter format.

      "Excellent - Better on the iPod Touch than iPad"
      Any additional comments?

      When this book is played on the ipod touch (and perhaps any ipod) you can easily select the Chapters within the Part being played by pressing on the three little horizontal lines at the top right.pf the ipod. Below the scrolling Title name it also says which Chapter (i.e. Chapter 47 of 66) is playing. Despite using the same player on the iPad there is not the same flexibility. On the iPad you choose the Part (i.e Part 11 for Isaiah) and when playing you can move the wiper over with your fingure to advance through the book but there is no indication of which Chapter is playing - Very poor but seems to be an Apple issue not the software per se.

      "Disappointed"
      What disappointed you about The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV?

      I really wanted to like this, but am very disappointed that I can't search or go back and forward to particular books or verses without a great deal of trouble. Amusingly too, I can't help but hear Dick Cheney in Richard Dreyfus' voicing of Moses. I don't think I'll listen to any of the other sections I downloaded. Bummer.

      "Absolutely the Best Deal for One Credit, Wow!"
      Any additional comments?

      Regarding the layout: Although a bit tedious and time consuming at first, you can figure out and make a cheat sheet for finding each Bible book by looking at the number of chapters in each section. For example since the last section is Galatians - Revelation and has 98 chapters, you know Galatians is 1-6 chapters, and then Ephesians would start at chapter 7. Then knowing Ephesians has 6 chapters, the next book, Philippians would start at chapter 13 and so on. All you need is a list of bible books and how many chapters each has and you can work it out. Should you have to? No. It should have been laid out by book. But that's life, sometimes you have to work to get what you want.

      "A must listen for busy christians"

      I have tried several times to read the bible but time always got in the way. After downloading this I was able to plug in mp3 jack in my truck so now i listen everyday on the way to and from work. The music and sensationalism take what normally would be a hard listen into pure enjoyment

      "The Greatest Story Ever Told"
      Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

      This captivating story never grows dull. The performers for the Audio Bible are believable and make the words jump from the pages.


      What did you like best about this story?

      The special effects are moving and captivating.


      Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

      The narrator's are A-list performers and seem to effortlessly tell the story of the creation of the earth, the coming of the Son of God, and founding of the new testament church. This is the best audio book ever recorded and needed food for the soul.


      If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

      "Audio gold"

      For the money, and for the benefit, nothing can beat this superb rendition. Brits nervous of the sound of American voices are soothed by Michael York's melifluous tones as the Narrator, and Malcolm McDowell as God the Father - reassuring once again that God is an Englishman ;-). It is also a joy to hear familiar American stars with their rich and varied timbres.
      Readers jaded or defeated by the printed page have the words of life reinvigorated. Long-held goals to read end-to-end can now be achieved and a full perspective on the span and comprehensiveness of scripture is gained.
      I agree that the addition of a referenced search facility would be wonderful, but the characterisations and humanity of the voices more than compensate for this. God's Word was mediated by human vessels and this feature of the Bible - its particular authenticity - is drawn out for those who have ears to hear.

      I loved the download version so much I went out and bought the CD's just to make sure I have hard copies as well as the MP3.

      The dramatised versions brings the Bible alive and makes its very exciting.

      I am very satisified with Audible so far and look forward to purchasing more material

      An Amazing Achievement in the audio portrayal of the Bible. This presentation features fantastic voice acting by the various actors in this masterpiece. The music and the background audio in the audio book are also excellent in my opinion. The Audio Book manages to create an atmosphere which contributes to the overall wonderful feeling of listening to this work of art. This is in my opinion one of the best Audio Bibles ever made.

      "Film quality entertainment"

      The bible turned into a captivating drama production complete with everything as if sitting in a great movie. Great sound effects naturally stimulate your equally greater imagination projecting movie quality pictures onto the screen of your mind as when listening to a great radio production. In all, inspiring, entertaining, greatly recommended and a wholesome uplifting experience bringing the whole bible alive and listened to anywhere as when otherwise impossible to read if driving, walking, working etc.

      "Esther's review of Word of Promise"

      I bought “The Word of Promise” as I thought it would be good to listen to in the car as I drive back and forth to work. Sadly I have found it a little difficult to move around to different parts \ books of the Bible. I felt it missed out big chunks … like when Moses was born and put into the Nile …. There is no mention of this. I wanted to hear that as we are doing a study on it and it would have been good to have heard it a few times before the study, but it just did not seem to be included. It did mean that I tried to go back and see if I missed it, which is why I say its not easy to move around like you could with a Bible in your hands. I liked the sound effects and want to listen to more of it.

      "Well, it's the bible...!"
      Where does The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

      I've always been interested in the Bible but, despite having had many, never read it before.

      It's excellent value - 98 hours of audio for 1 credit!


      What was most disappointing about Thomas Nelson, Inc.’s story?

      I know it's sacrilegious to say it, but it really could be condensed quite a bit. Yes, I know it is unabridged...


      Which scene did you most enjoy?

      It's good to hear all the familiar stories!


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

      You're kidding, right? 98 hours in one sitting? It's taken a couple of months at 2 hours per working day.


      Any additional comments?

      I would never have read the paper version, this worked for me.
