Misleading Headline

This recording starts with actual books that had been written during the time of the Old Testament that fill out details in the lives of the Patriarchs. Those are interesting. It is likely they were not included due to sheer volume. Later the author gets into all kinds of theological questions and controversies that really couldn't be considered books that would ever have been considered for the Bible when the final Canon was decided. He is getting into Gnosticism and New Age kinds of questions and confusions due to translations from the original languages into English. I am not interested in those topics at all. If you are a believing Christian and just wanted more understanding of the salvation history, inspiration and instruction recounted in the Bible this is not what you are looking for. The narrator has a good voice although he does not use much expression.

Weak Narration

The narrator attempts to read at least half an octave below his natural speaking voice. It makes me think of a community theater actor trying to sound like his character has a sore throat, but knowing that he has to project to be heard.
The mispronunciations begin with "canonical" fairly early in the preface. This is followed by multiple examples of "treatise"... tree-at-us? Read that as "The giant threw a tree at us". There are others, but these examples should make my point.
I'm not sure if the print version is wrong or if the narrator adds the "S" on his own, but the book of "Revelations" is mentioned.
This is all within the preface of a 44+ hour book.
I hope to finish this, as the subject fascinates me, but so far it is extremely disappointing as far as the narration goes.
