I jumped at the chance to get this set of CDs when I saw them listed over at BookSneeze.com because I have been searching for a set that gets and keeps my attention as I drive. I have listened to other Bibles on CDs...and I have never really been impressed by the same person reading...booo-oooring. (Yes...I am ADHD, but that is not much of a shock...look! Shiny!!)
So when this set of CDs arrived in my mailbox, I popped them into the player in my van within seconds of opening the box...and they have been playing ever since. Even my kids have enjoyed hearing the New Testiment acted out by different voices with realistic background sounds as you can close your eyes and see it all playing out.
The CDs come in a great looking, zippered binder for safe storage and the actors used on the recordings are are well-known and amazing to listen to. (Having seen The Passion Of The Christ, it adds a lot to have Jim Caviezel's voice coming thru as Jesus.) They are done in the NKJV, but with the tones of voice and the conversations playing out, I have had no issue following along and understanding God's Word.
