Chapter and book.

The Holy Bible, how can you go wrong with God's word.
Dale Mcconachie did a really great job in reading this book, but I could only give it 4 stars because!
Audible, please hear what your readers are saying.
You need to arrange this bible so that readers can go from chapter to chapter and book to book. This is an easy thing to do. Your readers can go online and purchase an audible bible that can go from chapter to chapter and book to book, and at a resonable price.
Why give away business!
I'll keep this bible because Dale Mcconachie is such a good reader.
I have been a gold member since 2008, and I really enjoy audible.
Please hear your readers.

William from Texas.

Just One Flaw

Mr McConachie's reading of God's Word is brilliant and I enjoyed it immensely. I'm sure I'll listen again in the near future. Since I was reading along with my Bible, I noticed that he sometimes read at a pace where the end of a sentence could not be verified. I found myself double-checking my Bible to see if the period I saw was just a comma. Regardless, I easily understood the words he spoke and quite enjoyed his narration. So, I'll certainly give him five stars for reading the Word of God entertainingly. Well done, sir!

"Go-to-everyday" Bible fav

Would you listen to The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) again? Why?

Again & again. Easy to listen and fairly intuitive operation. No distracting music or sound effects. Just straight-forward Bible text being read by a pleasant, non-theatrical, American(?) voice. Most technical issues fixed, improved. Not much in the way of instruction. Just figure it out & go. Most of the technical operational issues now resolved. Like it a lot

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)?

Being lost to the narrative in a 3-D Biblical event as though I were there at that very moment in a Judaen desert with the story's participants. Doesn't happen often enough with our daily distractions of life in general.

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

N/A

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Occasionally am surprised by an event, location, - whatever - that I had not noticed in my long previous Bible-reading history. Enjoyable to rewind, and do-over (& over) in those intriguing spots of narrative

Any additional comments?

Big fan of this audio edition! Still some glitches. Not perfect, but definitely the best for me at this time.

Great Valuable Tool

This is a great tool for multi-tasking. I get so much more study done and get through more passages by listening. It's even nice to read along to as it helps me keep focused. The only thing I wish was that the chapters would be labeled by the title of the bible books they contain. The good thing of course is that it always starts where you leave off but if you want to go to a different book you have to memorize which chapter contains which books. If you want to find a specific verse that takes a little more searching. The narration was good and accurate. The best feature I like is the different speeds you can set the narration on. You can listen to parts you are more familiar with faster and parts you want to study more in-depth more slowly. Overall, a good value for being able to get through more material faster.

Chapters unknown

I feel let down by the production people. The Holy Bible should, in my opinion, have been broken down into 66 books along with the chapter divisions as they can be found in the print and e book formats. I am undertaking to solve that on my copy by creating my own bookmarks and anotations.
I encourage all audiobook producers to get it right the first time.

Almost Impossible to Use

This audio version of the Bible is one of the best narrators I've heard and a favorite Bible edition, but the audible is very un-user-friendly. You cannot jump to books or chapters. You cannot even see what book of the Bible is in which audible chapter. So if you want to read Psalm 8, for example, you cannot a) find the Psalms or b) find chapter 8 in the Psalms. You will not even know which segment of this audible Bible to download! The very, very least they could have done is WRITE a Table of Contents, just a simple list of the books and chapters and show you which download and which track they can be found. But even better would be a hyperlinked Table of Contents. There has to be a better way. I really want an Audible Bible because I love Audible for bookmarks and sleep timer, but this book is much better to listen to on a Bible app. :(

Rushed and Frustrating

What disappointed you about The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)?

The narration is rushed. It seems as if the reader is trying to get through the material as fast as possible with no inflection or emphasis on the text. Basically the text is read woth no meaning.

What did you like best about this story?

I love the Bible and was hoping for a good listening experience.

What didn’t you like about Dale McConachie’s performance?

Rushed, no emotion or emphasis on the text. Horrible!

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The book and contents are the path for life. This rendition stunk.

Any additional comments?

None.

Perfect

What did you love best about The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)?

The Narrator has way of actually taking you into the story, you don't feel as if the Bible is being read to you, you fell as if you are living it.

What about Dale McConachie’s performance did you like?

Everything

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

No
