Great NKJV Bible - navigation is logical

I have both this Bible and the dramatized one. I like this one much better. I find this one easier to navigate than the dramatized version. Here is how the books are arranged:

Part 1 – Genesis, Exodus
Part 2 – Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy
Part 3 – Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel
Part 4 – 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, 2 Kings
Part 5 – 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles
Part 6 – Ezra, Nehemiah, Ester, Job
Part 7 – Psalm 1-75
Part 8 – Psalm 76-150
Part 9 – Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon
Part 10 - Isaiah
Part 11 – Jeremiah, Lamentations
Part 12 – Ezekiel, Daniel, Hosea
Part 13 – Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah,
Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi
Part 14 – Matthew, Mark, Luke, John
Part 15 – Acts, Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians
Part 16 – Philippians, Colossians, 1 Thessalonians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 Timothy,
2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews, James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter,
1 John, 2 John, 3 John, Jude, Revelation

If you are looking for a specific chapter, each chapter is it's own "chapter" and when you select a chapter it will always tell you what book you are in. For example, if I download part 8 and I want to listen to Psalm 139, it is in chapter 64. When I press "play" it will begin with the words "Psalm 139." It is nice that it always tells you what book you are in!

The narrator isn't the most exciting, but he does a decent job and I don't mind listening to him. It is nice to have an audio version to listen to from time to time. I am very appreciative of people who have taken the time to read the Bible for audio (especially since they have to pronounce all of those names!!)

Happy listening!!

Book and Chapter Selection

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is a great audio version of the NKJV Bible, but it is difficult to navigate through the Bible by Book, Chapter and Verse. The books are are lumped together within 16 sections. I re-titled all of mine to say what Part # they are followed by the first book and the last book that is read in that particular section.

What did you like best about this story?

I love the NKJV Bible and the narration is very well done. It is not boring, nor is it theatrical!

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

No

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

My extreme reaction was before this book....salvation! Praise God! He made a way where there was no way! Jesus IS THE WAY!

Any additional comments?

If you have never made Jesus the LORD (master) of your life read chapter 8 of Romans. Then read Romans 10:9-10 and pray...welcome Him into your heart so you may rule and reign with Him forever!

NKJV Voice Only Bible

This is a great recording, but is organizationally irritating. There are 16 parts where each contain multiple books. Each book and chapter are announced but aren't identified in file name or by tags so finding a specific book is a bit of a chore. Naming each part with the book that starts it should have been a no-brainer. Would have been better if there were 1-1 correlation between books and parts, ie., 66 parts instead of 16.

Great reading of the Bible!!

I downloaded this for my 88 year old mother and put it on CD's for her.. She is almost bedridden and hard-of-hearing, but the volume comes through so well on this, she can easily hear AND understand it... She absolutely LOVES it and has already had many hours of enjoyment being able to lay in bed and listen to the Bible read to her... Would definitely suggest this for anyone!!

GREAT! (with time intensive navigation)

Would you listen to NKJV Voice Only Audio Bible again? Why?

Because I've bookmarked it very well and can hear my favorite passages whenever I please.

Any additional comments?

The 'immense' job of bookmarking everything because the chapters in no way match up with the chapters of the Bible was a real pain in the rear. Everything else is great.

Beautiful reading of God's Word

I love listening to Bob Souer's reading of the NKJV. Some audio versions of the Bible are so monotoned that it's impossible to stay with it. Bob has a very agreeable voice, and he puts just enough inflection to give emphasis in the right places, but not enough to make it emotional. I enjoy listening to this audio Bible again and again.

Navigation is impossible

What did you like best about NKJV Voice Only Audio Bible? What did you like least?

The reading is good. The scripture must be narrated according to punctuation - like all reading it's key to understanding. This recording is, for the most part, true to the punctuation. However, the primary fault is navigation -- selecting what you want to listen to. You really don't know where you are in the book. It's most annoying.

Who was your favorite character and why?

This question is irrelevant to this book in my opinion.

Which character – as performed by Bob Souer – was your favorite?

Again, irrelevant IMO.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes, I've watched most of the Bible movies.

Any additional comments?

The reading is good.

Great quality, very, very, poor Audible labeling

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The bible is not a new book, so i was disappointed to find that none of the chapters or books of the bible are actually labelled, so you couldn't look for psalm 1 for example, it could be chapter 88 of that one downloaded section (of many sections). This make it nearly impossible to navigate. I would have returned it if this option was available.

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A

What didn’t you like about Bob Souer’s performance?

Bob Souer was fantastic and my review is in no way a reflection of the quality/delivery of the Audio narration, which is fantastic and worth buying.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from NKJV Voice Only Audio Bible?

As i can't navigate this audio book - its been a challenge to find the appropriate chapters i'm looking for; so i can't say if there is anything to be cut or edited.

Very easy to listen

Would you listen to NKJV Voice Only Audio Bible again? Why?

The voice is easy to listen, and I enjoy this audible. I wanted to read the old testament for a long time, but never had the time or will, this audible provided me with all the stories and I made comments and annotations.It had several books and each book many chapters, but the books are not named. I made annotations, maybe a next revision can name the individual books, I am aware no audible is naming chapters.Great voice and good flow you can listen while you do any work.

Would you recommend NKJV Voice Only Audio Bible to your friends? Why or why not?

yes, I already did

What about Bob Souer’s performance did you like?

The diction is perfect and I could investigate more on the names and places in the bible, very mellow still melodious

I would have preferred to have the different books separated. To make it easier to find specific Scriptures. However the narration is quite good.

I was born again listening to this audio Bible.

A little over a year ago God put it in my heart to read His Word. His Son saved me listening to this Bible. I have listed to it for hours every day since. It is a beautiful reading and I often weep listening to it.
