      "Great dramatized audio"

      Was a great audio recording. There was only two little inconveniences:
      One that could be fixed easly which it was read extremely slow.
      The other was unlabeled chapters it is extremely had to just find on book that you want to read. it's broken down into 17 books and nothing is labeled.

      "Incredibly awesome for meditation, and if you..."

      Jesus saves you everytime! There are no distractions, and if you need a bookmark or perhaps take a few notes to come back to that emotionally special place later. This NKJV offers this and much much more. The way is beautifully designed and crafted from character to character with awesomeness in the back ground music. COME AND SEE....

      Everything was awesome. It would be nice to have the chapters separated by each book. Gets a little challenging to find a specific chapter or book without it.

      "Phenomenal in all regards."

      Since 2009 the Father has used the Word of Promise to reveal His love for me, thus change my life. Out of the many audio Bibles I have listened to this one is my favorite and has impacted me the most. The array of voices and passion behind them easily captures and keeps my attention. May the Father bless you through the Word of Promise as He did me and even more so. Glory to Jesus the Anointed through the Comforter, the Spirit of Holiness. Amen!

      "Best Audio Bible on the Market"

      Without question. Performance by nearly every actor's voice was terrific. if you have trouble reading the Bible, this is the way to go. Plus you can back up and review as often as you need or want. Only complaint is the difficulty in finding books and chapters after the fact. Chapters should be noted throughout. Not just in Psalms.

      "Audio gold"

      For the money, and for the benefit, nothing can beat this superb rendition. Brits nervous of the sound of American voices are soothed by Michael York's melifluous tones as the Narrator, and Malcolm McDowell as God the Father - reassuring once again that God is an Englishman ;-). It is also a joy to hear familiar American stars with their rich and varied timbres.
      Readers jaded or defeated by the printed page have the words of life reinvigorated. Long-held goals to read end-to-end can now be achieved and a full perspective on the span and comprehensiveness of scripture is gained.
      I agree that the addition of a referenced search facility would be wonderful, but the characterisations and humanity of the voices more than compensate for this. God's Word was mediated by human vessels and this feature of the Bible - its particular authenticity - is drawn out for those who have ears to hear.

      I loved the download version so much I went out and bought the CD's just to make sure I have hard copies as well as the MP3.

      The dramatised versions brings the Bible alive and makes its very exciting.

      I am very satisified with Audible so far and look forward to purchasing more material

      "An Amazing Achievement"

      An Amazing Achievement in the audio portrayal of the Bible. This presentation features fantastic voice acting by the various actors in this masterpiece. The music and the background audio in the audio book are also excellent in my opinion. The Audio Book manages to create an atmosphere which contributes to the overall wonderful feeling of listening to this work of art. This is in my opinion one of the best Audio Bibles ever made.

      "Esther's review of Word of Promise"

      I bought “The Word of Promise” as I thought it would be good to listen to in the car as I drive back and forth to work. Sadly I have found it a little difficult to move around to different parts \ books of the Bible. I felt it missed out big chunks … like when Moses was born and put into the Nile …. There is no mention of this. I wanted to hear that as we are doing a study on it and it would have been good to have heard it a few times before the study, but it just did not seem to be included. It did mean that I tried to go back and see if I missed it, which is why I say its not easy to move around like you could with a Bible in your hands. I liked the sound effects and want to listen to more of it.

      "Film quality entertainment"

      The bible turned into a captivating drama production complete with everything as if sitting in a great movie. Great sound effects naturally stimulate your equally greater imagination projecting movie quality pictures onto the screen of your mind as when listening to a great radio production. In all, inspiring, entertaining, greatly recommended and a wholesome uplifting experience bringing the whole bible alive and listened to anywhere as when otherwise impossible to read if driving, walking, working etc.

      "Well, it's the bible...!"
      Where does The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

      I've always been interested in the Bible but, despite having had many, never read it before.

      It's excellent value - 98 hours of audio for 1 credit!


      What was most disappointing about Thomas Nelson, Inc.’s story?

      I know it's sacrilegious to say it, but it really could be condensed quite a bit. Yes, I know it is unabridged...


      Which scene did you most enjoy?

      It's good to hear all the familiar stories!


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

      You're kidding, right? 98 hours in one sitting? It's taken a couple of months at 2 hours per working day.


      Any additional comments?

      I would never have read the paper version, this worked for me.
