I would recommend this book to anyone that wanted to read the bible, but has never gotten to it. Listening is very easy, and feels like your listening to a movie.
NO - any dramatized version is subject to the particular preferences of the listener & for me it seemed 'put on' and didn't flow as natural 'storytelling' or conversation might. It is JUST a personal opinion though - you may love it.
see above - 'god' was a bit dodgy!
I am now back at Audible seeking a different version - preferably one where I can select by the book - rather than a track that may have any number of books in it.
If you have ever wanted to read the whole Holy Bible but had a hard time, then listen to the Bible on audio.
You can also add these audio books to itunes, then put them on your ipod. It is an excellent way to listen to the word of GOD and work out at the same time.
All of it .
David when he was young fighting Goliath and being victorious.
The story and life of the prophet Elijah.
When Jesus is tortured and died by crucifixtion for our sins and was raised again the 3rd day.
The way that this Bible is read will keep your attention. It is brought to life the way they read it.
Yes. First off it's God's Word. So it should be a part of everyone's library. Second, I've listened to several different audio versions and this is the best hands down. Even though the translation chosen isn't the best (NKJV) the performance is so good it overcomes that issue.
Richard Dreyfuss as Moses is worth it right there.
the Bible is a book that was written to be read aloud, it is best to be heard in audio format.
Nope, that covers it.
I like the way it is has added dramatization with music and sounds to accompany the Word.
I like them all but I think the narrarator is my favorite.
There are lots of moving moments in the Word.
The dramatization may not be for everyone, some may find it a bit distacting.
Yes I would listen again.
I haven't finished the recording yet but I want to let all potential listeners know the recording is fantastic. I like the narration and the sound effects add to my enjoyment. I can't sit still and read it but listening while I clean house and do dishes or even pulling weeds I think I can get it finished by Easter. Some of the words have been changed from what I read in my bible but that's ok. It's basically the same idea and it's fun to see what I remember from the first time I read it.
If you are like me and just never had the patients to read the Bible cover to cover but the desire to, then this is the answer. I listen to it while comuting, and I love it! I am only on Part 5 which is Kings. But I have learned so much! True that it is not a bible for studying and referencing, but still a very good version of the Bible to have in your library.
Listening to the old testament at night under a starry sky. Listening to the earlier books of the Bible like
Heck no..its huge
It is not just one isolate thing. It is the whole package. The high quality of pronunciation, the dramatization, the great number of actors who worked professionally to bring this Bible alive, the clever way with which the translations was made, which is not so old as King James', but it is not so simple as the common standard ones; the size of it, the speed, the rhythm with which they utter it; the clarity of it. If the Devil is in the details, God is in the details as well. Those details are far superior than a normal Bible, read by a monotonal, lifeless voice, which takes away all the pleasure in the listening. The ensemble is far greater than the additional of its parts.
Other than Jesus, all the other men's of God who have lived before him in the Old Testament. Saint Paul is one of my favorites also.
I still haven't heard all the Bible yet, for I prefer listening several times the same passage over and over, but they are all very good.
It would be impossible to make only one film about so much material. I would rather make a ten years series telling the whole story of the Bible. The name of it would be the whole Bible.
Any crhistians should have the opportunity to listen to this Bible, for all its high qualities. I will listen to it my whole life: only God knows how many times.
Great reading, however, it is difficult to find individual chapters. No Table of Contents.
Like the different voices. Makes listening much more interesting and remembered.
Many different ones
No - Too long. I love to listen to it while I clean and cook.
Again, no table of contents, so it is difficult to go to a certain portion.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
