The theatrics, the emotions instead of just someone reading words, it was like I was back there. I was able to understand the words of the bible, for the first time in my life I gave up reading the bible, and always wanted to get closer to god through the word
ITs the Bible being acted out with emotion, music, simply amazing
I am still in the old estament, and but now I enjoy and look forward to "reading"/ listening to the bible.
If youre someone who doesnt read the bible because you dont understand it, or you try and try but give up because it doesnt make sense then this book is for you. If you want to get a closer relationship with god that reading the bible can bring, then this book is for you. If you have poor eyesight and cant follow the storyline of books then this book is for you.
This makes the bible come to life. Makes it sound lively. I really enjoy listening. I only wish that I had the bible verses so I didn't have to guess where they are in the book.
I absolutely recommend this audio version of the Bible. It is nice to to listen to it in story form . Also they used different readers for the different characters in the stories. So not boring.
I have not listened to other performances.
There is one really BIG draw back to the way this version down loads. There are no chapter divisions and no book divisions. There is no way to choose the book and chapter you want to listen to. This is a real hassle.
I would try another book but I would look carefully first before I bought it to make sure that chapters and sections were clearly marked.
It was well done and I enjoyed all of it. But it was extremely annoying not to know at a glance which section came next.
The only thing that was a detriment to this item was the fact that the sections weren't labeled in an obvious, easy to find manner. So once purchased it was impossible to listen to them in order without taking a lot of time to sort through them trying to find the next piece.
I could listen and feel like I was in the story.
Too many characters to choose one. Very well done by all who compiled the story. Music an background sounds were incredible.
I would encourage anyone new to the Bible or even if you have read it many times before to listen to it on Audible. It may change the way you read it the next time.
Listening to the Bible read by men and women gave an new perspective
Excellent team of narrators
The voice character they hired for moses and Joshua in the old testament, "which reads most of gen, exo, Lev, deut, num, and josh" sounds like he's stifling angry the whole time when he talk about God. Its horrible. I can't listen anymore.
Yes i will over and over again. this is a must have for every christian. it help those who have difficulty in reading the bible. i am glued to my bible.
The story is told distinctly and dramatically at a rate where you can listen and hear without having to move swiftly replaying back saying "what did he say?".
You feel as if you were there.
"Hear the Word of God come to life".
So far so good. I like the benefit of listening to positive Word while I work on my computer. And not just my computer but my phone also. Thank you actors and actresses.
