      "Disappointed"
      What disappointed you about The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV?

      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.

      "Absolutely the Best Deal for One Credit, Wow!"
      Any additional comments?

      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.

      "A must listen for busy christians"

      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

      "The Greatest Story Ever Told"
      Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

      This captivating story never grows dull. The performers for the Audio Bible are believable and make the words jump from the pages.


      What did you like best about this story?

      The special effects are moving and captivating.


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

      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.


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

      The Greatest Story Ever Told

      Absolutely, this audio book was perfect!


      What did you like best about this story?

      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.

      Worth way more than one credit! I purchased the boxed CD set for $80, so one credit was incredible.

      The musical accompaniment is terrific! The sound quality is amazing. The readers are excellent. I have not listed to the entire set, but what I have listened to so far is truly great. As the cover states, you really do hear His Word come alive in this audio theater presentation. Easy listening, and good for the soul! Well worth purchasing!
