      "Great way to read the Bible."

      Great way to read the Bible while on the road. Though my personal experience with it, I did require some mental focus as I like to actively think about the Bible's content. At times I found the dramatic reading form of narration to be good, especially with the multiple narrators taking up the parts of different speakers; and at others to be distracting, though mostly the distracting points where the genealogies. Overall I did enjoy the dramatic reading though I am not a big fan of the primary narrator, but that is probably just personal.

      "Fantastic!"
      What made the experience of listening to The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV the most enjoyable?

      The Bible read as a story. Easy to listen to. Even the long, drawn-out genealogy lists were easy to pay attention to. I've been able to get a lot out of it hearing the Word verbally that I have missed when reading visually. Of course, it is the Living, Breathing Word of God, so we get something out of it every time we go there! But nice to get a multi-sensory approach:)
      For those who say you can't find the chapter in the Bible to reference. It's easy. Depending on what part you're in (i.e. Book 1 is Genesis and Exodus) you look at the chapter on Audible and count up. (i.e. Audible book 1, chapter 61 = go to the last chapter in Genesis (50) and count up from there in Exodus. So chapter 61 = 61 minus 50, so it's Exodus, chapter 11). Just do the math :) Plus, the entire Bible for one credit!!


      What other book might you compare The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV to and why?

      none other


      Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

      God


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

      no

      "Adds so much to the experience of the Bible"
      What made the experience of listening to The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV the most enjoyable?

      The readers are outstanding. The score, both music and special effects, really adds to the experience. Listening to the Bible this way engages the senses -- my imagination soars in the same way that it does when listening to great radio drama.


      What did you like best about this story?

      It was easy to keep track of the many many many characters in the Bible while listening because the readers did so well at staying in character.

      Listening to the Psalms is especially pleasing.


      Any additional comments?

      Great work!

      "Longest On Best Seller List Ever Known!"
      Would you listen to The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV again? Why?

      It is a little bit long to read it in one sitting. I listen to it on a daily basis and of course, will repeat reading it and learning more. This is a "living document" one that keeps on giving one knowledge of life, knowledge of God and His Son. The variety of those reading the Words of God make it a real live experience. The background sounds and music do the same. An awesome experience to say the least. This is the best buy I have made on audible.com: one credit to purchase a $70 book!


      Who was your favorite character and why?

      Jesus, the Holy Spirit and God the Father. It is Their book.


      What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

      Mentioned already in first box.


      Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

      It can do both and does both.


      Any additional comments?

      My best buy on audible.com. However, I just bought the NIV Bible to compare with this New King James Version: my second best buy.

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

      "Compelling Presentation"
      If you could sum up The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV in three words, what would they be?

      This performance presents scripture in the form of a compelling narrative that brings characters to life. Excellent for someone who has a difficult time concentrating on the written word. Way better than listening to NPR on the commute!
