Why incorporate the music?

That’s all that was frustrated by. It was interruptive and not necessarily on point. Good otherwise

Worth It!!!

For those who would rather have the names of the books instead of the generic part 1,2,3... labels, here is the info you so you can relabel it in itunes.

Part 1: Matthew-Luke
Part 2: John-2 Corinthians
Part 3: Galations-Revelations

Also enter the numbers accordingly for each part in the disc number criteria so the books will be sorted in the proper order on your ipod/iphone.

Good Content but lacking quality.

After listening to the sample, I was excited to download The Bible Experience and start listening to it. I was disappointed that the audio quality did not sound as good as the sample. I really wish audible.com used a high quality encoding process instead of their current 32kbps 22khz setting. Most of the time the lower bitrate is fine for spoken word audio but since this book contains spoken word mixed along with music and sound effects, the lower quality bitrate sounds like listening to it on a AM Radio. May be best to purchase the physical MP3 CD version since it is encoded at a much higher quality.

not user friendly

I like the narration on this audio Bible but I don't like the fact that they don't announce chapter/verses and you can't search it. It just chapter 1, 2, 3 instead of which book of Bible it is. It's a pain if you are interested in just listening to a particular part because you can't find it. I won't be buying the Old Testament as I had planned.

Feelin' Cheated

My 'one-star' rating is because this is NOT IN STEREO. If I had purchased this from iTunes, in parts, it would have cost more but it would have been IN STEREO. Don't buy the whole NT here. Buy it somewhere else or from iTunes. This wonderful production is completely ruined in MONO.

Maybe someone should NOTE THAT THIS PRODUCT IS NOT IN STEREO in the product description so that customers wouldn't unnecessarily waste their money! Hear me O Audible! Or am I just the voice of one crying in the wilderness?

ANGELS not zombies

Great! Finally a recording that does not exude what I feel is mediocrity, that makes angels sound somewhat awe-inspiring rather than echoing zombies, and a recording with music other than elevator music. There are nice transitions here between narrators and some great juxtapositions between gospel music and the meaning of the verses it accompanies. The narrators provide excellent interest and emotion to the verses.

Lacks ability to find books and chapters

The dramatization is great. However, if you want to listen to a particular book you are out of luck. It is not, that I can see, search-able so if you want to just listen to Romans then it's hugely time consuming to find. Wish I had known that before I purchased it. I am somewhat disappointed.

Brought the Bible to Life

This was well done! My husband and I listened to the new testament on our road trip this summer. We found that the time flew because we were so involved in the stories of the Bible. It made it real to me. The emotions conveyed by the voice actors were well done, rarely corny (although there were a few times). The only negative thing was that the background music and noises sometimes detracted from the story rather than adding to it. All in all, well done!

Opens up the Bible like never before

This is a semi-dramatised version featuring some of the biggest names in Hollywood. It brings the Scriptures to life and is unlike any other audiobook of the Bible you'll have heard to date. I enjoyed the energy in this and found that it carried you along with enthusiasm and actually got me 'feeling' the book rather than reading it (if that makes any sense). Highly recommended for those who are finding their path and attempting to read the Bible for the first time, young people, and anyone who want's a new breath of life from the book.
