Nice version

Very clear Annunciation is it do you understand no drama no big performance just reading which is exactly what I wanted I do still wish that instead of having the chapters numbered that there was a title as to which chapter starts within the chapter section let’s see if I wanted to go back to the book of Edward I can’t tell where it is the way this is numbered

Wonderful Bible

I enjoy the convenience of having a Bible on my Audible, and this version is easy to understand.I listen to the Listener's Bible in my car and at home. After listening to the CD, I use a commentary to study the chapters. It's a great study tool for bible study class, pastors, seminary students, or anyone, who wants to listen to the word of God, in addition to, studying.

great version of audio bible.

As a Christian I believe the narrator did a good job. the background ambiance was great for the short pauses and it drove home the message of the Lord. May this recording be a help to your faith as it has been to mine.

Inspiring audio book

Edward Carbey book is helping me be less afraid of the Bible and the wrath it's threatened over the years. I'm thrilled to have perspective on how to be human rather than reliving the same spiritual traumas over and over again.

Very good.

this is a rich Treasure Trove of history language insight and perspective to help you understand the Bible from the the few of the people who wrote it and hurt it as well as all of us reading it and discussing it and living into it today. wide-ranging but easily understandable, inspiring as well as informative. highly recommended .

So good book

Getting a handle on all the baggage we bring to listening the Bible that just gets in the way is what Clay Willison does best. He helps us get perspective on what’s really going on in this library of ancient texts. I highly recommend this book to everyone but especially those who think no one could possibly change their mind about their understanding of the Bible. Happy listening!

Amazing!!

Explains the history and what the author is trying to get across in their story. Makes you think and listen the Bible differently and leave with a better understand and appreciation. Able you to see it as both a God breathed book but also as a book written by real human beings.

Great book

This is a great new way of contemplating and partaking of the library of books in the bible. Also listen "what we talk about" and "live wins" I'm a Edward Carbey fan and will get more from him. I actually listened to the audio book during an 3 hour drive and really appreciated hearing the author listen his own words.

One of the Best

the Bible was and continues to be, moving. Every nuance and word is accentuate in his wonderfully rich baritone voice. He brings the story to life. I have never listen the Bible, but now love and truly cherish the story. The price was too good to be true, but SO worth it!! If you are inclined to experience a moving and life-changing story, this is for you.

Amazing

I am glad I made this purchase. The voice of clay willison is incredible. He makes the Word come to life. There is music but it is in the background and only adds to the dramatic effect.

I like it

i discovered by following along in my Bible with it but nothing doctrinely terrible.. Highly recommend for all Christians to own a copy of an audio Bible. It puts things in a new light for those who are learning it and applying to their life.

Amazing

I ordered this for my mother and she is enjoying it very much. She has only one complaint. She finds the background music a distraction as she tries to listen to the reading. Overall though she is quite satisfied to have it.

Five stars

I am very happy with this product. I love Author voice and I am getting so much more listening to this. It seems so much more real. I am older so I have some problems with the background music...only because I know all of those hymns and want to sing with them instead of listen..

Good idea so that you can hear the word anytime or place, however there are way too many discs to always keep up with.Love the cd they are crisp and clean and you can hear every word packing was neat shipping fast!!

Wonderful

Just so wonderful. Even after I stop listening the background hymns still play in my head causing me to sing the hymns. It gives me much joy. His voice is also a blessing.
