The Truth and Life Dramatized Audio Bible New Testament elegantly blends voices, sound effects, and an original music score to create an aural environment that will totally immerse you in the Scriptures.
The literal English RSV-CE New Testament is "performed" for you in radio-drama style by more than 70 actors, including international stars: Neal McDonough as Jesus, Julia Ormond as Mary, Mother of God, Blair Underwood as Mark, Stacy Keach as John, Michael York as Luke, Brian Cox as The Voice of God, Sean Astin as Matthew, Kristen Bell as Mary Magdalene, Malcolm McDowell as Caiaphas, and John Rhys-Davies as the Narrator.
My only problem is that any Bible has significantly more volumes (books) and chapters than the average book. Turned into an Audible book, it is almost impossible to find a specific verse by relying on just chapter numbers (counting continuosly across all the books). Until chapter names and numbers (counted per book) are available I have to write an index card and save it on my mobile device. Otherwise, I'd give it all stars.
The experience of almost being there.
It pulls you in and opens your imagination wide open.
Highly recommended for anyone who not only want to read the bible but also the experience of bringing it to life.
I am a reader so i wont say that the audio bible could ever replace the touch and feel of the Bible. However, i loved that i could LISTEN, especially anywhere anytime.
I Loved Jesus and Mark. Their voices just mesmerized me
Love this version. Gilberto makes a great point. I documented chapters to Books of the New Testament.
This was my first purchase from Audible and it is excellent. My husband was about to be received into the Catholic Church and Confirmed and make his First Holy Communion. Although he had received good teaching during his journey of faith so far I wanted us to be able to share the experience of hearing the Word together during the lenten period. This recording is clear, and well read and a joy to listen to. It brought the Word alive in our home. I would highly recommend it to anyone at any stage of their journey of faith, words I have read many times took on new understanding for me as well.
