    IMPOSSIBLE TO NAVIGATE!!!!!!!!!

    Would you try another book from Thomas Nelson, Inc. and/or the narrators?

    IF they use some common sense in how to navigate the Bible. This is not acceptable.

    Has The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes - someone does not know how to use a Bible. Chapter 900? It does not take you to the book of Exodus, Mark, John. ????

    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The narration that I heard was incredible. I just couldn't get it to go to the books/chapters that I wanted to hear.

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

    The performances were amazing but navigating this is not worth the $40. Really ridiculous for someone who would purchase a Bible. We expect someone who actually knows how to navigate a Bible but this is not it.

    Any additional comments?

    Don't purchase expecting this to go to the book of ....whatever.... it doesn't. VERY hard to hear a book/chapter you want to hear. So well performed but impossible to navigate. Don't spend your money until they fix this.

    Wonderful rendition

    My goal is too read thru the Bible once a year. I appreciate this production helping me meet my goal. At times I realized insights as voices changed, that I had not picked up on while reading by myself. It was easy for me to place myself into the unfolding drama with the timely and well orchestrated sound effects.

    Very good production

    I am an atheist and don't really buy into the Bible, but I thought I should be open minded and read it. I was never able to get through it in print and Audible was my last hope. it is the only way I could have done it, mostly listening while working out our going for long walks. It was still difficult to stick with it, but the quality of the narrators, the background music and sound effects kept me going to the end. I remain an atheist and no more of a believer, but I'm glad Audible made it possible for me to finally read the Bible.

    Boring

    I expected so much more based on the premise of the Bible being brought to life by celebrity voices but the narrator was terribly boring

    Outstanding!

    I love love LOVE this audio Bible! I go to it frequently so I can really focus on the message. It comes alive in a much grander way. I appreciate all the work that's gone into it! The Bible is already alive! However, sometimes the meaning of the text can get lost so the audio version gives me a broader perspective. Thank you, LORD, for guiding this production!!
