Holy Bible, NKVJ

I found the listening experience to be very good with this recording. The New King James version is a modern, easily understood translation of the Bible, and the music and "actors" used in the recording added value and interest, without being distracting. My only complaint with the content is that 1 Corinthians 15 appeared between 1 Corinthians 3 and 4 instead of where it should have been. I thought it odd and perhaps a glitch, so I downloaded it a couple more times, once for listening on my computer and once for use on my ZEN Vision:M mp3 player, but all recordings were mixed up with the placement of this chapter. Still, a very worthwhile investment. My complaint with the format is a little more frustrating: I like to have smaller "pieces" of my files, so I can jump quickly to specific parts. With the huge downloads for listening on the computer or mp3 player, it's extremely difficult to find a specific location. It would be so very helpful to have breaks set at chapter (or at the least, book) marks throughout the recording.

Great Version

As I am fond of the NKJV, being that it is the version I study personally and in church, I was quite pleased to find it here. The use of different voices is not distracting in the least and actually made the listening experience more enjoyable. I'm not a big fan of dramatized, performance audiobooks, but I made and exception with this one and do not regret it. I will also be making an exception to my preferences when they come out with the Old Testament.
Great version. You definitely want to get this one.

Excellent reading of a great translation

I have heard many audio versions of the Scriptures. The KJV read by Alexander Scourby to me is the standard by which all others are compared. This rates a 9 out of 10. The use of multiple voices is effective and not distracting as in other attempts to dramatize the reading. I look forward to the Old Testament being offered.

Best Audio Bible Ever!!!

I have listended to more audio Bibles than I can count in every major translation (including both NIV Bibles listed on Audible). THIS PRESENTATION IS THE BEST I have ever heard in any of the translations. The main reader is outstanding. The voices and sound effects are enough to keep message interesting and clear without distraction.

Just what I was looking for

Well, would prefer KJV but NKJV will work too. Did not want to go with the James Earl Jones version due to the reviews it was getting and I did not like the sample. I listened to the sample for this one and OUTSTANDING. Would highly recommend.

Eh not great, can't find anything, voice announcy

What did you like best about NKJV Audio New Testament? What did you like least?

It is interesting to at first. Something about the narrator's voice started getting under my skin. He sounded like one of those radio announcers reading a commercial.

Any additional comments?

As all audio Bibles on Audible, there is no way to easily locate a particular book of the Bible, much less a particular verse.This particular edition of the NKJV is about the worse of them.

I would like to see Audible break their Audio Bibles into actual Bible chapters instead of what Audible thinks is a convenience size.

Love the vocal presentation

Love the vocal presentation, but have a problem when trying to find a books location.

Would like for each chapter to list the books it covers and a locator fore each chapter.

Don't care at all for narrator

The narrator speaks much too quickly and without feeling. The music that sometimes occurs in the background is stupid but not too distracting.

Good reading, plot needs work

The story is a little weak, with a number of plot holes and contradictions. Many of the characters are one-dimensional characatures, portrayed as pure evil or pure good - very hard to relate to as a member of the less black & white world that we live in. I realize that many novels require a certain suspension of disbelieve, but this one just asks too much of me. That said, the voice actors were very good and easy to listen to.
