Publisher's Summary

Before you could tuck it under your arm, before you could bring it up on your phone - you did not read scripture, you listened to it. For centuries, the only way to access God's word was to hear it read aloud in public gatherings. Today, many are blessed to own personal printed copies of the Bible, but there is a surprising benefit to hearing the scriptures read aloud, as it was for so many generations. Verses you have read many times will impact you in a new way when you hear them through the NIV Listener's Audio Bible.

Read in a single voice with subtle background music, Max McLean's skillful, engaging, but never overdramatized style will bring God's word to life during your personal and family devotion times, group Bible study, or weekday commute. Listen to just 13 minutes a day, and you'll get through the entire Bible in a year. Or listen to six minutes a day to hear the New Testament twice a year. Max McLean's skillful narration will help you understand, memorize, and enjoy God's word.

What the critics say

"These are the most engaging recordings of the Bible I have ever heard." (Hank Hanegraaff, The Bible Answer Man, president, Christian Research Institute)
"He sounds as you might expect the writers of the text to sound if they were speaking instead of writing.... McLean reads the Bible like it is the Word of God." (Donald Whitney, professor of biblical spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary)

can't be beat, but....

max maclean brings the bible to life like no one else can.
my only issue is specifically with audible, that the parts are unlabeled and if you searching for the gospel of Matthew for example, you have to guess which of the 20 parts it resides in. desperately needs proper chapters and sectioning.

WISH IT WAS BROKEN INTO THE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE

Any additional comments?

I LIKE TO STUDY DIFFERENT BOOKS INSTEAD OF GOING FROM THE BEGINNING TO END WITHOUT IT ALL RUNNING TOGETHER LIKE ANY OTHER BOOK

Needs to be broken down into Books of Bible.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes

What about Max McLean’s performance did you like?

Yes...A plus

Any additional comments?

Extremely hard to follow. Needs to be broken down into books in Bible. I had to listen and then write on a piece of paper which books were contained in which part! Very time consuming.

AUdio Bible

this would be a five star rating if only the listener could locate the books of the Bible and find some way to determine what is on each illustrated disk. It will take much effort and time to download and note (on paper somewhere) the contents of the 37+ parts of this Bible. The reader is excellent.

The individual books of the Bible are not labelled

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I can't find the book of the Bible I am looking for without listening to excerpts of about ten individual books. The books of the Bible are not individually labelled and the covers are identical. Can't you fix this problem?

Would you listen to another book narrated by Max McLean?

His tone of voice is not in tune with the passage sometimes. He makes Jesus sound irritable and impatient in situations where that tone of voice is not warranted.

Any additional comments?

I listen to this in the car.

The Bible Is Great...Navigating Not So Much.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The Bible is broken down into 20 segments, with multiple chapters in each segment. There are no bookmarks for OT and NT or books of the Bible. This would be so much easier to use if the books and chapters were broken down like the Bible to easily navigate. I was disappointed that this wasn't organized any better.

great version of audio bible.

As a Christian I believe the narrator did a good job. the background ambiance was great for the short pauses and it drove home the message of the Lord. May this recording be a help to your faith as it has been to mine.

Books of the Bible?

When I purchased this it was so I could listen at leisure and to hear a certain book and scriptures. This doesn't list the books so I don't know until I turn it on which book of the Bible I'm in, then I have to search and scan, and because of this I don't listen to it very often.

The NIV Listener's Audio Bible

Staci at Grace Community Church in Fort Smith Arkansas gave me a compact Zondervan NIV Bible end of 2016. I can listen to this Audio Bible and follow along in my Bible. I want to read through the whole Bible this year. I have a hard time staying focused and this is helping me so much and
making it so enjoyable. Thank you for providing this audio Bible!
