Cannot find specific books in the bible

Cannot even tell what books are in which section of the audio book. It could have been easily listed in the description . Make it extremely hard to find what I want to listen to

Very Disappointed

I to was so disappointed in this download. There is no way to find books, chapters, verses you want to listen to. I can't see myself using it much either, it's just to random. The audio bible downloaded in 19 segments but you can't even rename each section to label what books/chapters are within. Not at all user friendly and very confusing. It's such a shame in the George W. Sarris does such a good job in the reading.

I wish I had seen the review earlier and I would have saved myself a lot of time.

chapter divisions

Any additional comments?

I've read many reviews that point out that it is hard to find the book or chapter you are looking for, because it is divided into 19 parts rather than 66. Here is the division by part and chapter within the part. I really like it overall now that I can easily find the book I am looking for and with some simple math, the chapter.

Part 1 – Genesis 1-50 (ch1-50), Exodus 1-40 (ch51-90)

Part 7 – Nehemiah 1-13 (ch1-13), Esther 1-10 (ch14-23), Job 1-42 (ch24-65)
Part 8 – Psalms 1-99 (ch1-99)
Part 9 – Psalms 100-150 (ch1-51), Proverbs 1-31 (ch52-82)
Part 10 – Ecclesiastes 1-12 (ch1-12), Song of Songs 1-8 (ch13-20), Isaiah 1-66 (ch21-86)
Part 11 – Jeremiah 1-52 (ch1-52), Lamentations 1-5 (Ch53-57)
Part 12 – Ezekiel 1-48 (ch1-48), Daniel 1-12 (ch49-60), Hosea 1-14 (ch61-74)
Part 13 – Joel 1-3 (ch1-3), Amos 1-9 (ch4-12), Obadiah 1 (ch13), Jonah 1-4 (ch14-17), Micah 1-7 (ch18-24), Nahum 1-3 (ch25-27), Habakkuk 1-3 (ch28-30), Zephaniah 1-3 (ch31-33), Haggai 1-2 (ch34-35), Zechariah 1-14 (ch36-49), Malachi 1-4 (ch50-53)

Part 18 – Philippians 1-4 (ch1-4), Colossians 1-4 (ch5-8), 1 Thessalonians 1-5 (ch9-13), 2 Thessalonians 1-3 (ch14-16), 1 Timothy 1-6 (ch17-22), 2 Timothy 1-4 (ch23-26), Titus 1-3 (ch27-29), Philemon 1 (ch30), Hebrews 1-13 (ch31-43)
Part 19 – James 1-5 (ch1-5), 1 Peter 1-5 (ch6-10), 2 Peter 1-3 (ch11-13), 1 John 1-5 (ch14-18), 2 John 1 (ch19), 3 John 1 (ch20), Jude 1 (ch21), Revelation 1-22 (ch22-43)

Hope that helps.

No way to find a specific book!!!

I just bought the whole bible. The voice is clear and good. But how can one find a particular book to listen? There is simply NO WAY to do it. It wastes money to buy each book, but who would know the whole bible edition does NOT even have table of contents to let you choose a book to listen! I need a refund.

Fine reading, Horrible for iPod

What disappointed you about NIV Audio Bible, Pure Voice?

This Bible is not organized for useful access. Cannot choose book or chapter.

Any additional comments?

A Bible should be accessible by book and chapter, not arbitrarily chopped into 19 segments with random audio chapters. This was a complete waste of not 1 but 2 credits. It is an outrageous offering.l

OUTSTANDING!!!

I reviewed several versions of audio Bible before choosing this one. I was certainly not disappointed! George Sarris does an excellent job delivering a crystal clear reading and I found his perfect pronunciation of the tricky names and locations in the Old Testament quite helpful! I purchased this media to assist me in my reading thru-the-Bible-in-a-year undertaking and it has been a wonderful tool. SPECIAL THANKS TO TENA, who took the time to list out the break down of the books on the multiple files - MOST HELPFUL! I copied the listing and printed it out to keep handy when I go to change books. Thanks! :)

Well Narrated, but no titles

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The voice actor is easy to listen too.

Any additional comments?

The lack of titles on the downloads for the books within the bible (Genesis, Exodus, matthew, mark, luke, john, etc) and incorrectly divided chapters by audible does not make finding a specific section easy. Matthew and Mark might be placed into the same download, but I have no idea which download they are in, and then I have to skip through all the chapters of Matthew if I want to get to Mark. And there's no way to know if I'm on Mark without listening to the narrator.

I'm glad to have the opportunity to listen to the Bible on long drives, but the way the download was created is not very user friendly. Though once accurate titles have been added I'll be quite content with this download.

Excellent!!! Don't miss!

The NIV version of the Bible is clear, and easy to understand in modern English.
It is a great choice for listening and I was surprised to notice that with someone else reading, I remembered better and saw connections and had comprehensions of underlying themes which I had missed in reading it.

I like to listen to a few chapters a day.

Don't miss this! It will give you plenty to listen to and think about for years to come.

I have really enjoyed the narration of George W. Sarris. He has a great, easy to listen to voice and he uses it well.

He uses his inflection well, although he clearly has not tired to do a tremendously dramtic rendering. I like this approach.

Given that, he had me giggling when speaking for Balaam's donkey and several characters who were clearly drunken.

I will listen to this many times in days to come.

You will not regret this version, this voice or this purchase.

Where are the individual books of the Bible?

I downloaded this thinking it would be broken down into the 66 books of the Bible which would then be divided into chapters for each of the 66 books. Not so. This is one long continuous reading of the Bible, which is well read and easy to listen to. However, if I want to listen to a particular book and chapter I can't because it's not properly broken down. So disappointing.

Excellent!

I like that you can download portions, hold your finger on one and see a summary of the whole Bible to know which part contains the book of the Bible you want to read. George Sarris does an excellent job of reading with passion and inflection in his voice. The reading speed is easy to adjust. This is very well done!
