No separate tracks

What did you like best about Holy Bible, Volume 21? What did you like least?

The reading etc is fine, but it is one big file, not separate tracks to where you could put on an iPod and re-listen to certain sections or chapters over and over again if a person wished, not happy about that.

Instruction Manual on Interpreting Symbols

What did you love best about Holy Bible, Volume 21?

2 Esdras has 7 visions that are in the style of Revelation but they're each fully explained --
So it's kind of a "how to " read revelations for dummies kind of thing.
Too cool -- not sure why protestant bibles decided to pull these books but am glad I finally read them after being a Christian for 20 years.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Angel Uriel - because he teaches how to interpret visions.

What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I can listen at work.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was amazed at the visions and the interpretations.

Any additional comments?

All Christians should read the apocrypha whether or not you believe the pope is the head of the church. Don't let your bias get in the way of understanding God's word.

Part 4 of 4, Of the Apocrypha

I am ashamed to have taken so many years to finally read the Apocrypha but that bucket list item is now complete. The reading of this part and the historic ties to the Old Testament was very educational and clarified many of my thoughts as to what was actually in this section. These 4 Part Series of the Apocrypha is well worth the time and effort expended. Nether will you have any regrets.

Enjoyed hearing this. Have the books but it's much better to be able to listen.
Narrators did a great job. Thanks

Easy to listen and understand

Hearing this version of the text makes it easier to comprehend. 2 Esdras has some weighty context. It's even better to hear it in some ways than it would be to read. Because I can try to picture the images without centering my focus on a book. That could go for any book. This isn't the best reading of a book I've heard. But considering the rarity of this text, it's well worth the price.
