Engaging Performance

I enjoyed this a lot. The dramatic performance makes the book very easy to listen to and understand. The cast is sensationally talented. There is perhaps a little too much music and sound effects (they occasionally begin to compete with the text for volume). But I also think the producers deserve a lot of credit for injecting as much life into the story as technology allows. This is a classic story of humanity, referred to in countless pieces of literature and is well worth listening to by everyone. I highly recommend.

accuracy or Translation remains to be seen

The feel of the speakers are really good and can speak to the heart if not for the accuracy of Translation, and word choice. by far the best translation is the new world Translation NWT.

The Trials of Job Come to Life

This is a passionate reading of the book of Job. Having the various (very talented) voices helps distinguish who is speaking in the various discourses of Job's friends. If you are pondering the issues of suffering and wisdom this dramatic rendition of Job is for you. You won't come away feeling like the issue is resolved but the heart-felt discussion between Job and his friends will have you engaged in this drama of the human condition that many have pondered through the ages. Beautifully done audio with dramatic sound effects and music that enhances, yet does not overpower the spoken word.

Performance is great .... content poor !!

Would you try another book from Inspired By Media Group and/or the narrators?

This product is having only the first 9 Chapters of Job against 42 Chapters in the Holy Bible. Though the product claim to be UNABRIDGED, the product is ABRIDGED !!

What was most disappointing about Inspired By Media Group’s story?

The Book of Job was not fully done. Only 9 Chapters were done. That's like switching off a Beethoven half a way through !!

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, the rendering of the "Revelations" is 100% perfect and great.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment !

Any additional comments?
