I purchased the CD set to listen to during my long commute. So far, I am impressed. The recording quality is fantastic and really gives the sense that you are part of the story. The only drawback is that you cannot rewind a few seconds to clarify what was said..... rather, the rewind function brings you back to the beginning of the chapter. Could be the sound system in my car? I am giving this product 5 stars because I think it is absolutely wonderful!
I own both the MP3 and the CD version, and the MP3 is so much easier to work with. I called Thomas Nelson, and they allow you to download it to all your personal devices. I have a desktop, a laptop and I will be getting a MP3 player to keep with me in my vehicles. If you have the CD's, you can't skip around from the New Testament to the Old Testament. You also have to change them frequently, as part of a book will be on one cd and the rest on another. With the MP3's, a couple clicks of your mouse and your there. Another advantage of the MP3's is that you can highlight all the chapters in a book, right click on properties and click details, and you can see how long a book will take you to get through.
It's wonderful to listen to the Bible and really get a sense of being a part of the story. We are after all, continuing the book of Acts through our own lives and writing our story. The voices give character to all the Saints who have gone before us. I know these are actors, but I believe the emotion and passion of this recording presents a faithful rendering of the heart of The Word. It's a beautiful way to add to the revelation of the written Word. Listen and be blessed!
