I love this narration. I reviewed every audio Bible I could find on the web before purchasing one because if I am going to listen to someones voice for 75 hours it needs to be a voice I like. Many of the audio Bibles are dramatic narrations with music and sound effects and some have different voices for different people, which is great if that's what you want. it is not what I wanted. Others have just one voice but the narrator has a heavy accent or he uses a lot of different intonations. What I wanted was a very simple, plain, easy to understand, clear voice with some emotion but not a lot. David Heath does an excellent job in my opinion of doing just that. I am so glad I kept searching until I found one that I liked. I wasn't really looking for the ESV translation at first - but I actually like it and am 100% satisfied.
EXCELLENT! IT IS TRUE TO THE DESCRIPTION AND TO ALL OF THE OTHER COMPLIMENTS FROM THE REVIEWS! ONE PERSON SAID THEY FOUND IT BORING - IN MY OPINION IT IS ONLY BORING IF YOU ARE EXPECTING SOUND EFFECTS AND DRAMATIZED READING. YOU CAN ALSO LISTEN TO THE SAMPLE BEFORE YOU BUY. I WAITED FOR YEARS TO PURCHASE AUDIBLE BIBLE BECAUSE OF THE OVERDONE VOICES AND EFFECTS OF THE OTHERS THAT WERE AVAILABLE. I STRONGLY, HIGHLY AND GREATLY SUGGEST THIS TO ANYONE WHO WANTS AN AUDIBLE BIBLE. (EVEN IF YOU'RE STUCK ON KJV LIKE I AM) THIS ESV READ BY HEATH IS OUTSTANDING AND WELL WORTH HEARING. I REALLY CAN'T SAY ENOUGH POSITIVE ABOUT IT. I'VE BEEN PRAISING GOD AND THANKING DAVID HEATH AND ALL WHO MADE THIS POSSIBLE EVER SINCE I PUT THE FIRST CD IN. IT IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST BLESSINGS AND BEST PURCHASES I HAVE EVER MADE. THANKS EVERYONE!!!
I recently received the Hear the Word: ESV Audio Bible on CD for a birthday gift, and I am enjoying it very much! The voice of David Heath is clear and soothing and the translation of God's word is easy to comprehend. I love that while traveling in my car I can listen to scripture!
