THE WORD OF PROMISE NEW TESTAMENT -AUDIO NKJV BIBLE
I love Bibles I do not like recorded translations. I have Bibles on CD and listened to a few recorded versions. I gave away a very expensive Bible on CD that included the Old and New Testament. When the opportunity to review THE WORD OF PROMISE - NEW TESTAMENT audio NKJV Bible I hesitated before agreeing to listen.
My first impression: great packaging; it will fit on my bookshelf beside my other Bibles very well!
THE WORD OF PROMISE NEW TESTAMENT - AUDIO NKJV BIBLE is released by Thomas Nelson; CD produced by Jim Cavizel and Raymond Arroyo, produced by Carl Amari. It is truly a production.
As I listened to the CD I became irritated with the background music that seem to overpower the words. Then I listened to the character of Jesus- I was not impressed. I did like the narrator.
What is good the pace of the dialog is easy to read along. I would not discourage anyone from purchasing this CD set because I know I can be a Bible snob and I would purchase this as a gift for a friend who has never read the Bible before.
This is the New King James Translation of the Bible and as I said a person can read along or just listen. One chapter per track makes it easy to listen at your own pace, and the list price is very reasonable. BUY IT- I recommend it despite my prejudices. Xxx MARSHA L F RANDOLPH
FOOTNOTE: My husband who does not read his Bible as much as I read mine- likes it!!!!!
