I really wanted to like this, but am very disappointed that I can't search or go back and forward to particular books or verses without a great deal of trouble. Amusingly too, I can't help but hear Dick Cheney in Richard Dreyfus' voicing of Moses. I don't think I'll listen to any of the other sections I downloaded. Bummer.
Regarding the layout: Although a bit tedious and time consuming at first, you can figure out and make a cheat sheet for finding each Bible book by looking at the number of chapters in each section. For example since the last section is Galatians - Revelation and has 98 chapters, you know Galatians is 1-6 chapters, and then Ephesians would start at chapter 7. Then knowing Ephesians has 6 chapters, the next book, Philippians would start at chapter 13 and so on. All you need is a list of bible books and how many chapters each has and you can work it out. Should you have to? No. It should have been laid out by book. But that's life, sometimes you have to work to get what you want.
I have tried several times to read the bible but time always got in the way. After downloading this I was able to plug in mp3 jack in my truck so now i listen everyday on the way to and from work. The music and sensationalism take what normally would be a hard listen into pure enjoyment
This captivating story never grows dull. The performers for the Audio Bible are believable and make the words jump from the pages.
The special effects are moving and captivating.
The narrator's are A-list performers and seem to effortlessly tell the story of the creation of the earth, the coming of the Son of God, and founding of the new testament church. This is the best audio book ever recorded and needed food for the soul.
The Greatest Story Ever Told
The voices are sometimes very hokie and distracting. The music can be odd also but overall I have really enjoyed this audioi book of the bible. I'm a new Christian and want to spend time daily in the word. Listening during my commute on Audible has been wonderful.
Absolutely, this audio book was perfect!
I love the ability to follow along in a more involved manner rather than reading the text as an outsider looking in.
The narratoration inspires a deeper understanding of the people in the bible.
Greatest Story Ever Told!
Worth way more than one credit! I purchased the boxed CD set for $80, so one credit was incredible.
I love Jesus, family, animals, nature ~ I'm in school for Web Technologies and Information Systems Technology. I love web design and writing.
I plan on listening to this over and over again. It is awesome. I loved every minute of it and learned SO much!!! It is a wonderful way to learn the Bible and will help anyone interested in the Bible to learn so quickly. Anyone who listens to this will definitely want to listen to it again and again. It's awesome. Praise God.
