Do these people even know what a Bible is?

Very rarely does a person think to themselves, "I would like to go through the entire Bible, beginning to end, and hear everything in that order." Sure, it's nice once in a while to go through the whole thing but really a Bible is for going to a specific part and reading small chunks at a time. Here they've just divided it into unlabelled chapters so if you are looking to read a specific book or chapter of the Bible you really just have to take your best guess at where it is. It's terribly inconvenient and rather ruins the entire point of having the audiobook at all.

The performance by the voice actor was great, I must say. He wasn't trying to needlessly dramatize things or act out different voices. He was just a guy with a good voice, reading me a good book. I could really get immersed in it. Too bad the whole thing is wasted on a navigation system that really should have been an obvious no-no from the start.

It's the best, but...

The voice only narration by Bob Souer was spot on throughout: perfect diction and enunciation. While there was no attempt to "perform" any of the parts, the reading was anything but dry. I was able to absorb and visualize the stories just as though I were reading it myself, no surprising changes of emphasis or other attempts to colour the stories.

The only problem I had, which affected me greatly, is that the 16 parts are not uniform - they vary greatly in size - and are not titled or described. If you open part nine for example, there is no way to tell in advance which parts of the Bible it contains. Similarly, if you decide that you would like to hear the words of 2 Timothy 4, you will find it difficult to locate.

need to implement book separations

the books really need to be separated by the book title, and actual book chapters.
Or at least give the user the ability to re-label items such as headings and chapters.

Great NKJV Bible - navigation is logical

I have both this Bible and the dramatized one. I like this one much better. I find this one easier to navigate than the dramatized version. Here is how the books are arranged:

Part 1 – Genesis, Exodus
Part 2 – Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy
Part 3 – Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel
Part 4 – 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, 2 Kings
Part 5 – 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles
Part 6 – Ezra, Nehemiah, Ester, Job
Part 7 – Psalm 1-75
Part 8 – Psalm 76-150
Part 9 – Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon
Part 10 - Isaiah
Part 11 – Jeremiah, Lamentations
Part 12 – Ezekiel, Daniel, Hosea
Part 13 – Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah,
Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi
Part 14 – Matthew, Mark, Luke, John
Part 15 – Acts, Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians
Part 16 – Philippians, Colossians, 1 Thessalonians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 Timothy,
2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews, James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter,
1 John, 2 John, 3 John, Jude, Revelation

If you are looking for a specific chapter, each chapter is it's own "chapter" and when you select a chapter it will always tell you what book you are in. For example, if I download part 8 and I want to listen to Psalm 139, it is in chapter 64. When I press "play" it will begin with the words "Psalm 139." It is nice that it always tells you what book you are in!

The narrator isn't the most exciting, but he does a decent job and I don't mind listening to him. It is nice to have an audio version to listen to from time to time. I am very appreciative of people who have taken the time to read the Bible for audio (especially since they have to pronounce all of those names!!)

Happy listening!!

Beautiful reading of God's Word

I love listening to Bob Souer's reading of the NKJV. Some audio versions of the Bible are so monotoned that it's impossible to stay with it. Bob has a very agreeable voice, and he puts just enough inflection to give emphasis in the right places, but not enough to make it emotional. I enjoy listening to this audio Bible again and again.

GREAT! (with time intensive navigation)

Would you listen to NKJV Voice Only Audio Bible again? Why?

Because I've bookmarked it very well and can hear my favorite passages whenever I please.

Any additional comments?

The 'immense' job of bookmarking everything because the chapters in no way match up with the chapters of the Bible was a real pain in the rear. Everything else is great.

Great reading of the Bible!!

I downloaded this for my 88 year old mother and put it on CD's for her.. She is almost bedridden and hard-of-hearing, but the volume comes through so well on this, she can easily hear AND understand it... She absolutely LOVES it and has already had many hours of enjoyment being able to lay in bed and listen to the Bible read to her... Would definitely suggest this for anyone!!

NKJV Voice Only Bible

This is a great recording, but is organizationally irritating. There are 16 parts where each contain multiple books. Each book and chapter are announced but aren't identified in file name or by tags so finding a specific book is a bit of a chore. Naming each part with the book that starts it should have been a no-brainer. Would have been better if there were 1-1 correlation between books and parts, ie., 66 parts instead of 16.

Book and Chapter Selection

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is a great audio version of the NKJV Bible, but it is difficult to navigate through the Bible by Book, Chapter and Verse. The books are are lumped together within 16 sections. I re-titled all of mine to say what Part # they are followed by the first book and the last book that is read in that particular section.

What did you like best about this story?

I love the NKJV Bible and the narration is very well done. It is not boring, nor is it theatrical!

Have you listened to any of Bob Souer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

My extreme reaction was before this book....salvation! Praise God! He made a way where there was no way! Jesus IS THE WAY!

Any additional comments?

If you have never made Jesus the LORD (master) of your life read chapter 8 of Romans. Then read Romans 10:9-10 and pray...welcome Him into your heart so you may rule and reign with Him forever!

NKJV Takes a lot of Room on Kindle Fire HD

If you could sum up NKJV Voice Only Audio Bible in three words, what would they be?

More on arrangement. Part 1 has sections for Genesis chap.1-50 then Exodus 51-90 then 91 is the audible tag that says this book is continued on the next part. The parts did not organize as expected(1,2,3 etc) Parts instead organized by no decimal rule ( 1,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9.) Each time I opened one part, It moved to the carousel front place and was out of the original order. It took 2 weeks to figure out how to find desired chapters. The ability to hear bible read for nightly devotionals is worth the trouble due to places that do not have strong enough wi-fi to run Bible apps.

Have you listened to any of Bob Souer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Pleasing reading
