The Letters of James, Peter, John & Jude: Rosemary Leach reads the Letters from James, Dennis Quilley reads the Letter from Peter, Thora Hird reads the three short Letters from John and Frank Windsor reads the one from Jude. Specially composed music is included. The readings were part of BBC Radio 4's series of 341 daily episodes of the Bible, broadcast in 1991 and 1992. Abridged by Hugo de Klee.
The New Testament: These abridged readings of the New Testament are taken from the 1989 Revised English Bible, which was translated directly from the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek into modern English to produce a Bible that was at once accessible and authoritative.
I highly recommend this recording. Each book SOUNDS like a letter - and not like the daily passage being read from the bible! Whereas detailed bible study of a few verses is very rewarding you don't get the sense of what the whole book/letter is about. The editing in this recording has been very well done. There is a vibrancy in each letter - not least because of the excellent reading, which itself brings added insight.
