1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in His sanctuary:

Praise Him in the firmament of His power.

Praise Him with the psaltery & harp.

4 Praise Him with the timbrel & dance:

Praise Him with stringed instruments & organs.

5 Praise Him upon the loud cymbals:

Praise Him upon the high sounding cymbals.

Missing chapters

The last chapters of psalms are missing. I hope this will soon be fixed. I like parts of this recording but find background effects and some music to be distracting and at times overpowering, annoying and unpleasant. For instance, in Amos, the music is awful in my opinion.
I also don’t like the heavy beat and style of music in some sections. Other sections are great and engaging.
I appreciate how the attention to detail in this recording helps to engage the listener. There is such power in the Word of God!
I like how the books and chapters are clearly labeled.

Hard to listen.

Many of the voices are shrill or annoying.
Some are scary. Ambitious experiment but not my favorite.

Outstanding

The use of background music and different voices for the multiple characters bring to the Bible to life. It leaves you with a deeper understanding and discernment of what is happening.

So good that I lent my CDs to a friend and never saw them again!

This is the audio Bible which has clearly had the best production effort put in! With background sounds and a different actor voicing each character, it comes alive in your ears!
I used to own the CD version, which was so good that I lent it to a friend and never got them back! I can’t give better praise than that.
The only side note I would include a warning on is, if you are a Brit who struggles with American accents, you might struggle with this. Sadly, British people speak very differently! However, it is a great reminder of how God saves all people, not just your own culture, and this is a great thing. Personally, I had no issues with this!
I did find that I’d be walking down the street listening to this, and be so immersed in it, that I’d occasionally jump at the background noises, forgetting it was in the audiobook and believing it was there next to me! Good work! I’m clearly a wimp! Haha
