One of the best Bibles I ever heard!
The NIV Audio Bible is almost exactly like this.
Except for the fact it doesn't have all those expert
readers that were very good
It's when Richard Dryfuss acted out the part of Moses
All in all. It was a very good Audio Bible!
This is an amazing deal for the price of one credit. There is music and sound effects that bring the story to life. There are multiple narrators and this work was very well done.
The sounds and music bring great visualizations.
one of my favorite audio books.
narator is very soothing
brings the stories alive
I ove this edition of the Bible. first one I found that I really love.
The readings and the background music / sound effects give the added pleasure of feeling like you were there. I love listening to the bible and some of these narrators are extremely gifted.
Absolutely!! Due to my vision issues it enriches my devotion time.
Jesus, of course because He died for me. Ruth is my second because she was a woman of character.
Yes but this brings the living Word to life as if you are right there. Great actors were chosen.
The only problem is that if you don't know where a specific scripture is you have to find it the best you can.
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.
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.
see above - 'god' was a bit dodgy!
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.
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.
All of it .
David when he was young fighting Goliath and being victorious.
The story and life of the prophet Elijah.
When Jesus is tortured and died by crucifixtion for our sins and was raised again the 3rd day.
The way that this Bible is read will keep your attention. It is brought to life the way they read it.
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.
Richard Dreyfuss as Moses is worth it right there.
the Bible is a book that was written to be read aloud, it is best to be heard in audio format.
Nope, that covers it.
I like the way it is has added dramatization with music and sounds to accompany the Word.
I like them all but I think the narrarator is my favorite.
There are lots of moving moments in the Word.
The dramatization may not be for everyone, some may find it a bit distacting.
For the money, and for the benefit, nothing can beat this superb rendition. Brits nervous of the sound of American voices are soothed by Michael York's melifluous tones as the Narrator, and Malcolm McDowell as God the Father - reassuring once again that God is an Englishman ;-). It is also a joy to hear familiar American stars with their rich and varied timbres.
Readers jaded or defeated by the printed page have the words of life reinvigorated. Long-held goals to read end-to-end can now be achieved and a full perspective on the span and comprehensiveness of scripture is gained.
I agree that the addition of a referenced search facility would be wonderful, but the characterisations and humanity of the voices more than compensate for this. God's Word was mediated by human vessels and this feature of the Bible - its particular authenticity - is drawn out for those who have ears to hear.
i have put this on my kindle and it's amazing! well done audible.
"NKJV Word of Promise:"
Superb rendition. Great balance of dramatic interpretation without compromising the purity of the text.
I loved the download version so much I went out and bought the CD's just to make sure I have hard copies as well as the MP3.
The dramatised versions brings the Bible alive and makes its very exciting.
I am very satisified with Audible so far and look forward to purchasing more material
"Enjoyed every minute of it."
Close your eyes,relax and listen to the deep wisdom of this book in superb audio quality.
"An Amazing Achievement"
An Amazing Achievement in the audio portrayal of the Bible. This presentation features fantastic voice acting by the various actors in this masterpiece. The music and the background audio in the audio book are also excellent in my opinion. The Audio Book manages to create an atmosphere which contributes to the overall wonderful feeling of listening to this work of art. This is in my opinion one of the best Audio Bibles ever made.
"Film quality entertainment"
The bible turned into a captivating drama production complete with everything as if sitting in a great movie. Great sound effects naturally stimulate your equally greater imagination projecting movie quality pictures onto the screen of your mind as when listening to a great radio production. In all, inspiring, entertaining, greatly recommended and a wholesome uplifting experience bringing the whole bible alive and listened to anywhere as when otherwise impossible to read if driving, walking, working etc.
"Well, it's the bible...!"
I've always been interested in the Bible but, despite having had many, never read it before.
It's excellent value - 98 hours of audio for 1 credit!
I know it's sacrilegious to say it, but it really could be condensed quite a bit. Yes, I know it is unabridged...
It's good to hear all the familiar stories!
You're kidding, right? 98 hours in one sitting? It's taken a couple of months at 2 hours per working day.
I would never have read the paper version, this worked for me.
"Makes it real"
Anybody who always wished they had read the bible, but can never find time, can now listen on their drive to work, or whenever is convenient. Seeing the whole book, rather than the edited highlights presented at bible class or in church, really opens the work up to self study.
The quality of this audiobook, together with special effects and music really brings home the absurdity of this work. The perceived authority given to scripture in its written form is stripped away when presented in such a familiar way, and this should be applauded.
My only real criticism is that the indexing should have been more bible based, allowing readers to search using biblical references. Otherwise, excellent.
"Better by far"
Well I was surprised. This is an excellent product. Sound effects, goo music and yes acting is good and by famous persons.
Only problem is part 15 does not download. Audible are fixing this.
