The Bible Experience.

The old testament portion was well done. I found it very annoying in the New Testament being interrupted by singing and other music not related to the reading. I did notice that Mark 16 was included in it's original form.

My favorite audio bible!

The performances are all amazing as is the sound effects.
My only complaint is the random songs in the letters to the church. I don't know why they're there!

The Bible Experience Review

I love listening to the audible Bible Experience. I love all the actors voices and the visual sounds in the background. it really truly brings the Bible to life. The audible Bible Experience has become a part of my nightly routine and I regularly fall asleep to it. I highly highly highly recommend the Bible Experience. You will absolutely love it like me. ( be prepared for surprises in Psalms which include professional singers singing a few of the Psalms) so many blessings in the Bible Audio Experience!

Captivating read

I’ve attempted to read the bible from beginning to end a few times, but this was the only way I was successful in doing so. The character voices and background sounds kept my attention and allowed me to read the entire thing. The only downside is that if you’re looking for a particular book or passage, it’s not easy to find the exact unless you search online. I highly recommend this for anyone who has struggled to stay focused in reading the bible as I did.

The Best Bible Audio Presentation

I am really impressed by the quality of the presentation. In particular, the way it tells the story makes it so vivid. I deeply appreciate the presentation.

The only complain I have is that there is no quick access to any part of the book
1. The book chapter listing is completely confusing. You will have to listen to the beginning of each chapter to know what it contains
2. There is no way to search the book
3. There is no way to bookmark across chapters.

Wonderful listening experience

Although the listening experience is wonderful, it is impossible to find the books of the Bible.I finally found the New Testament begins at chapter 930. It would be far more useful if they had at least given you easy Navigation to each books beginning. Again, the listening is wonderful, but very poor, very poor navigation.

Glitchy & Incomplete

I was looking forward to listening the whole Bible but I had a difficult time downloading it. It would not show properly in my app & when downloaded would only play through Genesis. I’ve been struggling to navigate the book as the book information closes when I try to view it. Disappointed and frustrated. I had purchased this book intending to listen by my phone while going about my day and haven’t been able to so.

A very frustrating narration to listen to.

The array of voice actors and sound effects made this quite entertaining. I quite enjoyed having various men and women voice the character roles. The frustration began when I reached to book of Psalms. While I expected the psalms of David to be voiced by a different actor than say Asaph's psalms, they had a different voice actor for each psalm and read them alternating between male and female actors. They did this for Proverbs and Ecclesiastes also. These books were written by men in the first person therefore it became very weird having women voice their roles. Ecclesiastes is where I gave up. I tried so hard but gender role-reversing the Bible is not something I can support. I would have expected better from Zondervan.
