The New American Standard Bible is one of the most accurate translations of the scriptures. Professional voice artist Dale McConachie, narrator of over one hundred audiobooks, takes you on a journey through God’s word, where you discover His holiness, love, power, mercy, and grace.
Do you often feel you’re too busy to sit down and read the Bible, yet you know you need time with God? Well now you can hear from God from virtually anywhere with this digital recording of the New American Standard Audio Bible.
Dale’s goal in recording the NASB is for you to feel as if your best friend is right by your side reading the Bible to you while driving in your car, working out at the gym, or traveling on a plane.

Caveman5 Stars Out Of 5NASB MP-3 CDApril 21, 2015CavemanQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I came close to buying the regular CD version but put it off due to the lower price of the MP-3s, so I got the set as soon as it was available. After dealing with some learning curves with MP-3 format to get the audio on other devices to work, (they don't call me Caveman for nothing) I accomplished the goal of being able to listen to scripture in my shop, living room on the computer, and in our newer car. Older CD players will not play them, but that's no fault of the product nor why I gave it 4 dots for quality. Likewise for my inexperience. So if you don't have a player that is capable playing MP-3s, you may want to get the regular audio CD set. Check your player's instruction manual if you aren't sure.
At this point, I have only listened to disk 4 and 5, the New Testament portion of disk 4, and mostly the Gospels through Romans 3 on disk 5. Disk 4 starts with Jeremiah 50-52.
If I could give 4.5 dots for quality, I would. The only reason it doesn't get 5 dots on quality is that there are slight differences in the recording, mostly punch-in edits where the voice sounds a little different, which is really no big deal at all, and I would certainly expect such differences in such a lengthly narration. Everybody reads with a little different emphasis and this is no exception, but also not a terrible objection at all, and nothing is over or under emphasized. There are slight differences in pronunciation compared to how you and I would pronounce words to the narrator, and that too is to be expected.
Unlike some other Bible narrations, there is no music, no dramatization, which I find to be distracting - if not silly, and the recording quality is very good; no noticeable noise. It is not a monotone either. It is a good tempo and easy to listen to and understand. The punch-in's are just a little different in equalization and sometimes just a little different in tempo, but not distracting, just a little noticeable and shouldn't bother normal folks. Some people are way to picky for their own good, especially when it comes to a good Bible narration. There is nothing in the recording that is objectionable at all.
Each chapter has its own track but not all the chapters or tracks are individually listed on the table of contents. For instance, on the small sheet (7.25" x 5"), single sided printed table of contents that comes with the set, Luke is divided between disk 4 and 5. Disk 5 starts with track 1, Luke 14-18. Next listed is track 6, Luke 19-21. So each chapter has its own track, but all the tracts aren't individually listed. Some people may find that a little confusing, but all they have to do is learn to count.
You don't want to take any chances on loosing the printed table of contents so make some copies and use them instead of the original. I made some on an enlargement copier so they would be a little easier to read, although the smaller print on the original is not difficult to read. The printing is white letters on a visually textured brown/dark burgundy background that appears to be a photo of a leather covered Bible. This makes it difficult to write notes on my copies of the table of contents, but that doesn't have much of a dangerous effect on changing the course of time and space; but loosing the one and only table of contents probably would. Make and use copies! Sort of like Bible manuscripts, isn't it?
Again, there is nothing here that should disappoint anyone at all who wants to hear scripture read to them. I'm VERY happy with this purchase and will enjoy listening to it for years to come.
I hope the reader finds this review to be helpful, if not just a little amusing.
My best to you.
RalphSDAge: 55-65Gender: Male4 Stars Out Of 5Excellent reading, but the MP3 CD's don't have plaintext Bible book and chapter identifiers inside file names or inside MP3 tags; so a provided cardboard index sheet is needed to identify filesApril 9, 2015RalphSDAge: 55-65Gender: MaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I first heard Dale's reading of the NASB on www.biblegateway.org , and I liked his style of reading, so I purchased this item.
After purchasing this item, I discovered the following technical production weakness in the CDs (not a weakness in Dales reading): Each MP3 file on these five CD's is named using a CD-index number (1 to 5) and a file-index number that together correspond to a set of index numbers on a printed cardboard sheet that is included inside the hard-plastic hinged case. Unfortunately, neither the file name nor the MP3 tag information for an individual MP3 file indicates the Bible book or Bible chapter for that file, so it is not possible for a listener to see the book and chapter displayed on the audio player equipment, and so the listener must use the printed cardboard sheet that is included with the set of CD's. Bible book names are usually verbally announced by Dale at the beginning of the Bible book, and chapter numbers are verbally announced by Dale, but electronic equipment that is used to play these CD's will not visually indicate either the book name or the chapter number. The player equipment will display the set of index numbers that correspond to numbers found on the printed cardboard sheet that is included inside the plastic case. I would have preferred that file names and/or MP3 tags directly spell out book names and chapter numbers. I hope the CD production company will improve this weakness, so the user can know what is playing without using the printed cardboard sheet.
