      Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

      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.

      "Love the content but Menu is awkward"
      Would you consider the audio edition of The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV to be better than the print version?

      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.


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

      see above - 'god' was a bit dodgy!


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

      no


      Any additional comments?

      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.

      "The best Bible that I have ever heard."
      Would you consider the audio edition of The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV to be better than the print version?

      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.


      What did you like best about this story?

      All of it .


      Which scene was your favorite?

      David when he was young fighting Goliath and being victorious.

      The story and life of the prophet Elijah.


      Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

      When Jesus is tortured and died by crucifixtion for our sins and was raised again the 3rd day.


      Any additional comments?

      The way that this Bible is read will keep your attention. It is brought to life the way they read it.

      "Best audio Bible available"
      Would you listen to The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV again? Why?

      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.


      What was one of the most memorable moments of The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV?

      Richard Dreyfuss as Moses is worth it right there.


      What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

      the Bible is a book that was written to be read aloud, it is best to be heard in audio format.


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

      Bible.


      Any additional comments?

      Nope, that covers it.

      "Highly dramatized"
      What did you love best about The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV?

      I like the way it is has added dramatization with music and sounds to accompany the Word.


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

      I like them all but I think the narrarator is my favorite.


      Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

      There are lots of moving moments in the Word.


      Any additional comments?

      The dramatization may not be for everyone, some may find it a bit distacting.

      Would you listen to The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV again? Why?

      Yes I would listen again.


      Any additional comments?

      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.

      "What a fantastic way to hear the Bible"

      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

      "The best Bible ever criated."
      What did you love best about The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV?

      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.


      Who was your favorite character and why?

      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.


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

      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.


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

      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 additional comments?

      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.

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

      Great reading, however, it is difficult to find individual chapters. No Table of Contents.


      What was one of the most memorable moments of The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV?

      Like the different voices. Makes listening much more interesting and remembered.


      What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

      Many different ones


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

      No - Too long. I love to listen to it while I clean and cook.


      Any additional comments?

      Again, no table of contents, so it is difficult to go to a certain portion.
