Amazing!!!

I'm so happy that this Translation is on audio!! I just discovered this Translation a few months ago and instantly loved it.

The only thing I would add would be to rename the chapters to the Bible chapters for easy navigation.

*EDIT*: I made a chart with all of the Chapters labeled! See link to get it!

Great translation! Impossible to navigate!!

The Passion is a great translation but Audible has treated it as one book with single chapters instead of dividing into 27 Books with their corresponding chapters. It’s impossible to find the book of the Bible you are looking for!

Wonderful translation / gross oversight the chapter numbers are not included

This is a great translation that opens a whole new freshness to the word of God. It’s wonderful to have all these books in one audiobook. That being said, the fact that chapter numbers were not originally included in the first edition is a terrible oversight on the part of this production. I am reviewing the second edition which still does not have chapter numbers to my great disappointment. I feel that we all deserve a third edition that includes chapter numbers and we should not have to pay to re-purchase the audiobook again to get the basic navigational tool to play this book. Audible.com there are many many reviews that state the same thing about the chapter numbers, would you please consider re-issuing a third edition with the chapter numbers so we can easily navigate this book. Thank you for your consideration

Throughly Enjoyable

I am generally not a “fan” of Bible Translation as I grew up with King James : my father was a minister.

However, this translation have moved like no other. I purchased both the Kindle and the Audible versions.

My only criticism is that the Books of this Translation are only identified as “Chapters” in the Audible version.

Otherwise; this is a great resource in its understanding , scope, and subsequent application.

No way to locate books within bible

I enjoy the Passion Translation. However, it is a very large book considering of multiple books and NONE of the books or chapters are titled so it is difficult to locate any specific book you may want to listen to within the bible.

So so...So Good. Gets even better with study!

After listening 50+ times, so far, I am more convince than ever of its accuracy and the absolute need to consume God's Word daily! Intimacy in a relationship requires time. God wants to talk to you! and this makes it easy to listen. John 1:14

impossible to find the books of the bible

they just used arbitrary "chapters" starting st "1" to over 200 of them. impossible to just jump to a book in the bible you want to read. makes the audio WORTHLESS.

Not fit for purpose

update: apparently Audible are chanign chapter headings so as we can see where they are in the Bible! And they are doing all Brian Simmons stuff. no date given tho when they will b user friendly... shouldve been sorted before release I thikn. Will alter stars when its happened!!

Divided into 450 nameless chapters you have to guess which one corresponds to each biblical book. No idea how you even begin to access chapters and verses with in each book. How this got to market in this nightmare format beats me. It's a joke.. But on the person who bought it in good faith to use!! As I said... Unusable.

Beautiful translation... Terrible navigation

A beautiful translation read beautifully with beautiful music. Just BEAUTIFUL.

However the navigation is awful, badly needs a navigation pdf to be released so you can find your way around as you have no hope currently, only option is to listen from start to finish which is fine but would be good to be able to navigate to different parts of the bible

Wonderful Translation of the Word of God but........

This amazing translation is rich and enriching powerful and empowering anointed and fragrant but WHAT A SHAME the music in the background is intensely distracting annoying and upsetting. When you just want to listen to the power of the Alice giving Word in all its fullness the impact of the Word is lessened to a devastating extent by the piano continually playing. In a very short space of time you find yourself really wishing for silence and just to let the Word wash over you and enter your heart. Sadly with the irritating constant plague of background music the power of the fulfilling and awesome translation is drowned out.
SO SAD!!! GET RID OF THE MUSIC!
Although the piano score is lovely it pulls down the narrative and as a listener you are just left thinking “Why oh why did they ever even think of doing it like this?”is t the amazing impact of the Word of of God enough? It doesn’t need any single thing to pad it out!!!
Sadly another annoying thing is that the chapter headings don’t help you identify the passages you want to listen to.
If you wanted to listen to Psalm 1 for example well good hunting!! No chance!! Could be way down the list or somewhere in between.
All in all a wonderful translation spoiled in the rendition and formatting of information makes it impossible to listen to specific parts of the Word.
So Disappointed!!

Couple of tweaks REALLY needed

Wonderful translation more complete than many. Thank you very much! My feedback is re formatting: the music is too loud and distracting plus the books and chapters of each book are not shown!!! It is impossible to find a specific book or passage!

Never seen anything like this before and I but LOTS of audiobooks! Why is this? This is so basic! Had I known this, I would not had bought it in this format as I use it as a complement to study and teach... It would be great if this was fixed and offer us the option to update pleeease! :-) Thanks you and blessings..

Beautiful translation

Beautiful translation and well recorded. Would recommend.

The only reason for not giving 5 stars is that all the chapter numbers follow each other (e.g. 209, 210) with no reference to the books of the Bible so it’s quite difficult to remember where in the New Testament you are. I would love it if the chapters could be named as per the Bible references e.g. Mark ch1. Also when the chapter numbers are read out, it would be nice if it reminded you which book you were in.

Really? No chapter headings!?

No way to search for chapter and verse? You have to guess then narrow it down? So if I want to listen to 1 Cor 6, I have to figure out that’s chapter 142? Please fix.

Chapter headings completely unhelpful and useless

I love this audible book. It is beautifully read, lovely for going off to sleep. Unfortunately the chapter headings are useless, more than useless because they are numerical and do not reflect the Bible's chapters. Therefore it is impossible to find favourite chapters to hear again or use as a study guide. Since the reader does not announce which chapter he is reading you have no way of knowing even which book of the Bible it is that is being read let alone the chapter of that book. It is very frustrating and I hope the translater rectifies this as soon as possible.

Good but can be improved

I hope you can put titles or we can put titles in every chapter coz it is hard to hard to know which book we are in.

Wow, emotive and breathtaking

Changed my view! Listening to it brought so much alive to me, especially with it’s excellent background sounds, clear emotive reading and just amazing translation.
Downside to audible rather than the actual audio book is that there are no chapter names hence it’s hard to skip to favourite books. But this is a programming thing that audible can’t get around I e read.

Great Audio Book.

I enjoy listening to this regularly especially bedtime and in the car whilst driving around.
