Yes ,the dramatization is awesome, but I found it awkward to deal with chapters in the audible app that were not titled, as the books of the Bible are.
The greatest, life-changing story ever told!!!
I've tried reading the entire bible and found it difficult to continue moving along. The sound effects in this listening make a world of difference to completing it and understanding the context. So nice to hear books in one shot with consistent flow. It was really exciting to get to the New Testament. I think you'll love this format.
Reading the Bible is a challenge of time (if you have it) and more importantly of appreciation and understanding because the world at that time was vastly different from how it is today. This audiobook took care of time because listening to it is a matter of finding your quiet time. With your Bluetooth headphone on and your eyes closed you could just drift back in time and voila you are in the Garden of Eden. Then with Noah, then with Moses. Then with Jesus, then finally John. The different voices used to represent characters plus the background music and sound effects are all very helpful in making the whole listening experience astonishingly enjoyable. For people waiting for your flights at the airport or bus terminals, this would help a lot. Buy and download it to your mobile device and you're all set for that 10 hour transpacific flight. Most importantly, listening to the many words of God, his reasons for his actions, instructions and punishments allow you to appreciate and understand the world then and the world now.
there is no way to navigate this audio bible... why in the world would anyone produce such a book ? this makes no sense at all...... and all the complaints and reviews and there is still no legend to find the books ?
it is so sad when companies leverage religion and provide poor service and ignore the complaints of customers.... this should have been fixed years ago
I love the Bible. I love to listen to this dramatic reading in the New King James Version. I fall asleep listening to it at night and do my housework to it during the day.
The orchestration in the background.
The Bible is a living book! The narrators of this dramatic reading add to the dimension of it's beauty.
Possibly...but not possible.
Highly recommend to anyone who has every wanted to read through the Bible. The only downside is it is difficult to go to a specific book.
A wonderful find on Audible - so well produced and narrated,
Jesus - the one and only loves you.
It was fun to hear the various performers and nice to have the bible presented with a bit of drama ...however, it's hard to navigate something this large. Overall, I think this is better read and appreciated in print.
wouldn't be possible
fun to listen to - good performances by well known actors - however, hard to get back to a particular chapter, etc. because of the length of this undertaking.
"Is Richard Dreyfuss a mockery toward God's Word as the Superior man of God Moses or what? A dreadful performance. Is he drunk?"
What since r.d. Is an actor He is not powerful and All knowing
He is disrespectful ego centered man
A real treat.
