Drawing on newly available sources that increase our understanding of many previously obscure biblical passages, the NRSV stands out "as literal as possible" in adhering to the ancient texts and only "as free as necessary" for understanding. 25 Hours. Read by Marquis Laughlin. 16 CDs.
New Revised Standard Version New Testament - audiobook on CD
After listening to the first CD, I would not purchase this particular one again. It speaks to the children/teens in the church, in that it is like listening to the Muppets reading the Bible. :):) It was not my best choice, and would not recommend it for adult listening. Good quality, good format, but not for adults.
Could you recommend a more appropriate Bible CD for adults.?

Pleasant audio rendering
This recording of the NRSV New Testament is both pleasing to the ear and easily used.

I love Marquis Laughlin's voice and enthusiasm, and really do think he is one of the very best narrators out there! Although my only real beef is that he reads a little too quickly in some parts, I think this audio New Testament is definitely worth it. I'd really like to hear Laughlin narrate an ENTIRE Bible sometime.
