Fabulous Fabulous job!

This is so wonderful! The biggest recommendation would be to label out the books of the Bible instead of calling them chapters. For instance, if I want to go to James it's a guessing game as to which chapter it is because it's not labelled as James. This is a brilliant production if you're just wanting to listen to it straight though!

Great dramatization

Pleasant to listen to, but label the chapters please! There's no way to know what book you're clicking on.

Good job, very accessible

A word before I give my thoughts about this audiobook. I’m guessing that most of the people who would stop to read a review of The Breathe Bible are going to be believers. I am not, and I think it’s important to be clear about that because it may affect what I say.

At the same time, I have great respect for Christianity, and have collected Bible translations since I was 15 years old. I’ve read the New Testament at least a dozen times and the Bible as a whole 5 times. The New Living Translation has long been one of my favorites. From my perspective, it strikes a good balance between accuracy and readability. Its clarity and its graceful writing makes it an especially good candidate for an audiobook production.

And so we have The Breathe Bible. It uses many of the techniques that first (as far as I know) appeared in the Word of Promise (another excellent production but one that unfortunately used the much less accessible NKJV). The techniques include original music, multiple voices, and elimination of many “he said/she said” statements. As a result, many of the “scenes” of the New Testament are performed as exactly that: dramatic scenes. In the Breathe Bible, this is particularly effective in the Gospels and in Revelation.

The Word Of Promise is more heavily “produced” than The Breathe Bible, and the cast of the latter, though excellent throughout, are generally younger and less well-known (at least to me). The clarity of the translation more than makes up for any differences here. Of the many translations available in audiobook format, the NLT is easily one of the most “listenable.”

I’ve read that the producers are hoping (sooner or later) to pair this with the Old Testament. I hope they do. I would love to hear the historical books and the Hebrew Prophets done the same way as the New Testament has been done.

Inaccurate and Horrible

This was an epic fail! Horribly done. It reads too fast, the translation they chose is very inaccurate, some of the voices are horrible. Also buyers beware! Audible knows this audio sucks. You cant return it through the website, you have to CALL them to get a refund. This is precisely why I will NOT renew my audible subscription.

Love It!

I love the people reading the Bible. The only thing I wish it had was the names of the books instead of just chapters. You have to know how many chapters are in each book and then add them up to go to the books that you want to read. Other than that is awesome!

No Index

Excellent in terms of listening.
Can't easily find chapters to read.
It needs a clear index.
Reverted to YouVersion Bible App which is so easy.

mislabeled

Excellent dramatic work, lovely to listen to, needs to be labelled as an interpretive compilation of the gospels.
