I would recommend this audio book to anyone who has trouble reading the bible. Such a beautiful experience. Don't miss out. Worth a credit
I enjoy listening to the majority of the audio. However for someone considering I would suggest to look at a different one. For me, the transitions in between different audio voices was disturbing. This occurs for example in epistles when one voice's volume goes down while a different reader starts to read it as well. I consider this as a distraction.
It's hard to rank the bible...haha
The bible...these questions aren't relevant
The sounds and narration really bring the story to life. I felt myself wanting to hear more. It's cool because the bible is a story like any other, it's just a loooong story. The parts that don't work so well on audiobook is the lineage that is often listed off in the old testament.
This is more for listening on the go. If you want to study the bible I recommend actually reading it. It took me quite awhile to get through Genesis time wise. It would have taken far less time if I had read it instead.
Absolutely loving the ease at which I'm able to catch up on all my reading with this app.
Take the music out while they're trying to talk. Aggravating.
No not really.
I wasn't able to make it all the way through it because it was bothering me, so I don't really know.
Any fool can know something the point is to understand!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
