I have never been a fan of audio books, but this audio version of the Bible is one of my favorites. Whether on a long drive or just in the car for a few minutes, it's nice to hear Scripture that will encourage your day. Being that the New Testament is where I spend a lot of my devotion time, I thoroughly enjoy hearing the Word vocally interpreted. The dramatization by well recognized voices aids in the understanding of the Scripture and makes the Word come alive. I will say that some of the background music and noises can be distracting. This particular version is read from the NKJV. I would like to hear it in the Message or New Living Translation.
This cd set would make a great gift for those who are on the go on a regular basis. I would not recommend these audio cds to replace your copy of the actual written Word, but they do provide a new perspective that would be useful as an additional resource.
My husband and I really love listening to our Word of Promise New Testament. The script is verbatim from the Bible, but the sound effects, back ground music, and voices make the Bible come to life in a new way. One unexpected perk of this purchase was how much our children enjoy listening to the Bible. Our 8 and 6 year old boys often ask to listen to the Bible as they go to sleep at night.
