Publisher's summary

Early prophets wrote the Bible over the centuries spanning both BC and AD. The first Bible was written in Hebrew, and many of the chapters bear the names of those who wrote the 66 books. Moses wrote Genesis, David wrote much of Psalms, Solomon wrote the books of Solomon and Ecclesiastes, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John wrote those books. The Hebrew Bible was then translated into Greek and finally into English.

John Wycliffe first translated the entire Bible into English in 13th-century England. William Tyndale translated the Bible into English in 15th-century England. The King James translators used the Tyndale translation in the publishing of the King James Bible in 1611, and it is commonly referred to as the Holy Bible.

Alexander Scourby was the first to record the King James Bible in the early 1950s. Since that time, millions have been sold the world over. Although many have recorded the Bible since then, no one could ever match Scourby's unparalleled reading. The combination of Alexander Scourby reading the King James Bible is an incomparable hearing experience. The Bible verse in Revelation 1-3 seems to apply: “Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.”

We hope you enjoy our King James Bible audiobook.

Critic reviews

“Alexander Scourby has the greatest voice ever recorded.” (The Chicago Tribune)

"Next to Scourby, most readers are 'just good'.... The late Alexander Scourby is reputed to have been the world`s best audio-book narrator, bar none. He is heralded as having the greatest voice ever recorded.... What made Scourby so great? People who try to describe it generally stutter through glowing adjectives and adverbs, concluding that it's an intangible, indefinable quality. But they all agree on one thing: He was a man with a truly rare gift." (Sandy Bauers, Knight-Ridder Newspapers; Chicago Tribune, February 22, 1990)
