Publisher's Summary

The New American Standard Bible is one of the most accurate translations of the scriptures. Let professional voice artist Dale McConachie, narrator of over 100 audiobooks, take you on a journey through the Old Testament, where you will discover the relationship between God and the nation of Israel. The Pentateuch deals with the creation of Israel and God establishing a covenant relationship with Israel. The historical books record Israel’s history, its victories and successes, and its defeats and failures. The poetic books give us a more intimate look at God’s relationship with Israel and his passion for Israel to worship and obey him. The prophetic books are God’s call to Israel to repent from its idolatry and unfaithfulness and to return to a relationship of obedience and spiritual fidelity.

Perhaps a better title would be the First Testament. The word old tends to give the idea that the Old Testament is not relevant. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Dale’s goal in this recording was to make a simple but reverent audio copy of God’s Word that you can take with you everywhere you go - while you commute, in the kitchen, or at the gym. You can easily access any chapter of the Old Testament at any time.

difficult to search for a specific book

What disappointed you about The Old Testament of the New American Standard Audio Bible?

The bible is broken into different chapters without titles. Some of the books of the bible are more than one chapter, so although they are in order it the numbers are not the same as the order of the books. It is there for not good to look up something in particular but if you want to listen to the Bible, as it is read straight through, it is fine.

Hard to find specific Books/Chapters

As others have said, it is difficult to find a specific place you want. In addition, some of the Chapters have been omitted. When I came across this I quit reading/listening and applied for a refund. I will also apply for a refund for the New Testament.

Content is wonderful. Hard to navigate

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The chapter breaks are not according to Bible's structure, and are not documented in any way. It was very difficult to find specific books.

What about Dale McConachie’s performance did you like?

Solid, respectful reading

Not searchable

This Bible would be better if searchable or at least have a table of contents.

Audible Audio version is NOT Navigable OR USABLE.

NO TABLE OF CONTENTS, NOT ONLY are chapters NOT - THAT IS NOT!! NOT labeled by book and chapter number but tracts are NOT EVEN divided up into chapters. Bookmarking system is so awkward it is TOTALLY impractical. And as always with audible books, there is NO possibility of setting reader to repeat a chapter. This means that when listening, as i do, when doing other things like paying attention to traffic and road, I miss most of what i am listening for.
