If you ever wondered how you could get through 2-3 more chapters, this rendition is for you! First of all, chapter numbers are not read. I got lost in the narration, and had to pull myself away after about ten chapters. It's like listening to a movie complete with sound effects, and music that adds to the atmosphere. This recording even makes Leviticus and the Geneologies come alive! From animal sounds to babies' cries, it draws you into both the dialog and the experience of the people who lived long ago. Narrators come from different racial groups which adds to the drama. It's like reading the Bible for the first time bringing freshness to dry parched souls, and music to the ears. Be prepared to laugh, and cry, and be transformed by the experience! This is a recording I will come back to again and again! Gone are the days of dry reading sessions! Thanks Zondervan, and thanks Audible! And thanks to all the people who made this recording possible!
I have loved listening to the Bible Experience. It's great to listen to when you are in a place where you can not read (even better when you can follow along in your Bible). They did an excellent job. I would strongly recommend it to anyone (especially those that struggle to find time to read the Bible or have a hard time understanding it).
This phenomenal spoken word version of the Bible brings new meaning to the Good Word of the Lord, even for people that have read it before. The professional actors, the music, the background noises - it all adds up to a real "experience." This is not to be missed. They even manage to make the genealogies sound interesting with drums, use of voice, etc.
I bought this a couple of years ago. This is wonderful on my iPad as I can let it play me to sleep as it charges up. What a blessed way to end one day and prepare for the next!
Awesome Audio! Open in iTunes for chapter settings. Make sure to download all 9 parts. Thank you for making this available.
First let me say that the Bible Experience is the best Audio Bible that I have ever heard. My only problem is that when I downloaded this into Windows Media Player I did not realize that it would be formatted into 9 parts, w/o books or chapters shown.
Because of this you will have to forward through each part searching until you hear something that alerts you that it may be the book that you are looking for. Because I am an avid bible reader & like to read along w/the narrater this has seriously impacted my enjoyment of listening to this audio book on my computer. For those who just want to listen straight thru will enjoy this.
This is a very exciting listen with a wonderful cast of actors. The only problem is there is a lot of background noise, ie; rushing water, birds, animals, etc... which makes it a little difficult to focus on the words.
It's Genesis through 2 Chronicles... really?
The Inspired By media group is outstanding and this is a faithful presentation of my favorite book.... but not all of it is here.
This should be called "Part 1" or something I downloaded this wanting ALL of what it says it is: The Old Testament.
So... Isaiah... Jeremiah.... Danie... Habakkuk .... Malachi.... where's the rest of it?
I love the drama of this recording, but I was very disappointed that it is not divided into parts by the books. If I had known this I would have though twice about using credits for this and would have bought each book separately or at least only the books I was interested.
