This REALLY needs to be indexed

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The performances, music and sound effects are great and provide a vivid and wonderful recitation of the bible BUT there is no way to find the books or verses short of spending a lot of time guessing or book marking sections once you find them. The addition of indexing the sections would make this an excellent audiobook but without it finding sections is extremely frustrating.

Very nicely dramatized!

Excellent audio quality, very nicely dramatized! I love to listen to this audiobook at bedtime. I would even say it has a musical quality - very relaxing. I would, however, voice this complaint: the audiobooks do not list which books start where or the order.

This is definitely worth purchasing!

New to God

I have just found God over the past 8 months. Wanted to start at the beginning. I have spent the past 3 months listening to this book 1 hour every day. I will admit a lot of this was hard to grasp for someone with little understanding of God and the bible. I will say this book was very enjoyable to listen to. Only wish it were easier to keep track of the chapters. Impossible to just look up any certain story.

Love listening to the OT

If you could sum up The Word of Promise Audio Bible Old Testament NKJV in three words, what would they be?

Enlightening, Confusing, Surprising

Who was your favorite character and why?

God of course

Did the narrator do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes all but Richard Dryfus who played Moses. I doubt he even read the text before he read it. He was very unbelievable and boring, unfortunatly Moses has a lot to say. I understand the producers wanted a big name to help get attention but Richard Dryfuss was not a good choice at all.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Don't think that is possible its too big and too many hours.

Any additional comments?

Thank you for making the OT come alive. Hearing things I have never heard or read before. I am very happy this was produced and available.

Poor Organization of Sections

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I'd be hesitant. The organization of the sections seems random and isn't marked. I would like to see the sections organized so that I could glance at the various sections and know which books of the Bible were in that section.

What other book might you compare The Word of Promise Audio Bible Old Testament NKJV to and why?

No comment

What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

Excellent performance

Could you see The Word of Promise Audio Bible Old Testament NKJV being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No comment.

Any additional comments?

None

Addictive!

I've completed the first two parts, and am enthralled. At first, the pace seemed plodding. I tried speeding it up, but it was a bit distorted. However, after an hour or so, I was happily engrossed in the production. I wasn't sure if I would like having music and background dramatization effects, but am loving it. I've been a Bible reader all my life. It's easy to forget that the histories of the OT involved real people living these events in real time. The dramatic effects in this production have reminded me of that fact.

The production quality is excellent. The background effects do not drown out the reading. Rather, they enhance it.

Awesome, but needs indexing

The performance and sound effects are wonderful - and it's God's word...The addition of indexing would make this a 5 star all the way around. Finding a book out of sequence is trial and error... frustrating. For example, I was looking for the book of Jonah - found it in Part 14 starting at chapter 28 - 31 (the 4 chapters of Jonah). Then chapter 32 starts the book of Micah.
