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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Breathe Taking

I was emersed from start to finish. It was like being there and watching my ancestors. The best bible experience ever. One should still self read and study. BUT this experience has seeped into my dreams, and has brought a new view and understanding to my walk. HalleuYah, oh ye Yisrael! #HebrewIsraelites2018 #12TribeDescendant

Cannot select book, chapter or verse

The Bible Experience is a great audiobook version of the Bible. However, the implementation of this is very poor. You cannot select the Book, let a known the chapter or verse you want to start on. So if you want to listen to a specific book... Good luck finding it.

Nice

Its wonderful to be able to listen to the word of God this audible Version Is nice HOWEVER , it would be so much better if you could actually SEE the chapters listed rather than having to guess where you may have left off all this shows are "Chapters" no names of The Book.

Great audiobook but...

I downloaded this book to help with a year long bible study so I could listen on the way to work and back home. The one thing that NEEDS to be changed is to add the books of the bible each one is so they can be easily referenced when looking do for a specific one. having the same title for all of the files doesn't help.

Great value, tough to navigate

This is really well done. I like the different voices for every character.

But what is really needed is easier navigation. Audible, please consider labeling each book and chapter for easier navigation.

Thanks!

The best

I've listened to several audiobooks, especially while flying abroad but this by far has to be the best audio book I've ever listen to. I'd recommended this audiobook anytime.
