    "An Exciting Audio Bible"

    I have loved listening to the Bible Experience. It's great to listen to when you are in a place where you can not read (even better when you can follow along in your Bible). They did an excellent job. I would strongly recommend it to anyone (especially those that struggle to find time to read the Bible or have a hard time understanding it).

    "Listening is Like Being There"

    If you ever wondered how you could get through 2-3 more chapters, this rendition is for you! First of all, chapter numbers are not read. I got lost in the narration, and had to pull myself away after about ten chapters. It's like listening to a movie complete with sound effects, and music that adds to the atmosphere. This recording even makes Leviticus and the Geneologies come alive! From animal sounds to babies' cries, it draws you into both the dialog and the experience of the people who lived long ago. Narrators come from different racial groups which adds to the drama. It's like reading the Bible for the first time bringing freshness to dry parched souls, and music to the ears. Be prepared to laugh, and cry, and be transformed by the experience! This is a recording I will come back to again and again! Gone are the days of dry reading sessions! Thanks Zondervan, and thanks Audible! And thanks to all the people who made this recording possible!

    "Better to purchase CD than downloading via Audible"
    What disappointed you about Inspired By...The Bible Experience?

    The Bible Experience is wonderful. The Audible version is not so good however. The audible version does not breakdown the tracks by Bible book therefore you can't intentionally listen to what you want when you want and when its the Bible that is important.

    Story
    "The end of 2 Timothy 3 is missing...."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I used to think I would recommend it, but not anymore because of it dropping 2 Timothy 3:16-17.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Inspired By...The Bible Experience?

    I liked the performances.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    I pretty much liked them all.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to it in my car.


    Any additional comments?

    Put 2 Timothy 3:16-17 back in. "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."

    "Best Thing Ever for an iPad"

    I bought this a couple of years ago. This is wonderful on my iPad as I can let it play me to sleep as it charges up. What a blessed way to end one day and prepare for the next!

    "Decent Recording - But Not Complete"

    The dramatic reading is good and has nice background sounds. However, this is not the complete Old Testament (as noted by other reviewers). I have listened to all 9 downloads. At the beginning section of one of the last ones there is also a section that is recorded over in a fast voice. Sounds like someone messed with the recording and Audible has not corrected it. I would not recommend Audibles version unless they correct these bugs.

    "So...Where's the rest of it?"

    It's Genesis through 2 Chronicles... really?
    The Inspired By media group is outstanding and this is a faithful presentation of my favorite book.... but not all of it is here.
    This should be called "Part 1" or something I downloaded this wanting ALL of what it says it is: The Old Testament.


    So... Isaiah... Jeremiah.... Danie... Habakkuk .... Malachi.... where's the rest of it?

    "Not Computer friendly"

    First let me say that the Bible Experience is the best Audio Bible that I have ever heard. My only problem is that when I downloaded this into Windows Media Player I did not realize that it would be formatted into 9 parts, w/o books or chapters shown.

    Because of this you will have to forward through each part searching until you hear something that alerts you that it may be the book that you are looking for. Because I am an avid bible reader & like to read along w/the narrater this has seriously impacted my enjoyment of listening to this audio book on my computer. For those who just want to listen straight thru will enjoy this.
