Great Narrator

Would you listen to The Complete King James Version Audio Bible again? Why?

Yes.
Christopher Glyn has a great voice and did a superb job of narrating this audiobook. I think it is a great resource for an Audible library. This Audible book is also a good way to read the Bible more if you have the app. The Audible app records your listening statistics and by this you can keep track of how much you have read in total, each day, week, month, and year. It can be motivating to see your total reading time and want to keep adding to that, and try to improve your times with each month or year.
The Audiobook consists of 10 parts, each about 8 hours long.
The things that you might not like about this audible book are that it is inconvenient to find a certain book or chapter of the Bible to read. Each of the 10 parts are not divided by Bible books and chapters. If you want to find say Romans 8, you can't just skip to it, but will have to listen until you find the place and then make a bookmark. You will have take to take time as you listen to make many bookmarks before you can easily find the place where the books and chapters start.
The other problem, at least for me, is that there is music at the start and close of every gospel chapter. The gospels are not divided like a regular book where each new chapter brings a new scene; some continue the same teachings or narratives. Thus, the music can be distracting in certain areas. Both the music and also the music being at the start and close of each chapter were not something that I liked.

Incredible

Any additional comments?

Christopher Glyn reads the entire Bible with just the right amount of emotion, not over the top by any means, yet with enough feeling that he helps the listener learn the meaning in the passages.

Wow!!

I wish I had read this years ago. It would've saved me from so many mistakes. Better late than never.

For people unsure of whether or not they can handle 80+ hours... I had determined that I would listen to it in a month. As a dog walker, that's probably easier for me than most. Still though, you can actually listen to it at a slightly accelerated speed because Glyn is such a spectacular narrator that you don't lose articulation...

I don't want to say there are some parts that you can fast forward through, but in the Old Testament you sort of can get away with 3x speed when they're listing family trees or giving measurements of things...

But enough about the speed settings. I'm only pointing it out in case your on the fence because of the amount of time it will take to listen.

The listen is well worth the time, especially if you do it as consecutively as possible.

It's amazing that this book transcribed by so many different people never contradicts itself -- not even New Testament vs the Old. The New is basically a clarification and deepening of understanding for all set forth in the old...

If you're a devout non-believer, you should read this to at least know what it is you're being devout against. But, if you're simply a non-believer that's curious, I suggest listening, It may just change your life.

Impossible to navigate

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

My review is not a criticism of the bible itself or Glyn's reading of it, but rather Audible's formatting. It is impossible to navigate this audiobook. It comes in 8 units each of which are about 8 and a half hours long. I don't know about anyone else, but does anyone sit down and listen to the bible from the beginning to the end? A bible reader wants to be able to flip to the relevant chapter and verse of the bible and read that part, instead of having to wade through 74 hours to get to it. If I download it into iTunes, I can't access the chapter breakdown. Audible doesn't have an audible app for use on desktop. I contacted Customer service and they were nice but couldn't even understand my query and wanted me to buy the new Fire Kindle HD8 to read this book. My husband is blind and finds it difficult to use Kindle or the audible app on the smartphone because their voiceover functionality is not good and it also changes all the time in the name of 'updates'. This is yet another thing that could be so easy, but companies make it difficult for no good reason. It makes me so angry that companies like Audible grab so much of the market share yet give so little thought to how their consumers actually use their products. You are alienating your readers, especially the blind ones.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I don't know but any audio book from any company BESIDES AUDIBLE

Would you be willing to try another one of Christopher Glyn’s performances?

Well of course! I like his slightly Welsh accent

What character would you cut from The Complete King James Version Audio Bible?

Is this question real?

Any additional comments?

Naxos Audiobooks have better readers and a better system of letting their customers download their books. It is broken down into relevant chunks (e.g. by chapter) to make the reading easier without having to use proprietary software. I love Naxos. I hate Audible.

The best audio bible so far

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

This is one of the best audio bibles so far, I love the KJV, and because of the "old English" and the rich content of the bible, I like to read it slowly, so my comprehension is complete.

This audio bible narrates clear and slower than other audio bibles that I've listened to, Christopher Glyns voice is a pleasure to listen to, without back ground drama sounds and music, keeps me perfectly attentive. I highly recommend this for serious bible lovers and students that don't need God's word cluttered up.

I was worried about this audio not being broken up chapter by chapter or even book by book, and in some situations it is small problem, yet, I'm finding that it is overcome by the convenience of the players and easier to handle the smaller amount of files, I don't think it is such a problem to loose a star over.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jesus! Because He is God & loves us soooooo much that He died for us.

Which scene was your favorite?

Can't pick out just one scene, this book is full of God's love for His creation.

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

This book did and does make me laugh and cry, angry and happiness, full of wisdom, drama, life, death, love, hate, sex, war, peace, joy, travel, suspense, business, mystery, crime, law etc. there is something for everyone in this collection of books

Any additional comments?

Get to know God's word for yourself, by listening to the whole bible, and don't just take other peoples word for it, I am surprised at how much new stuff I find each time I read or listen to the bible.

It is very good

If you could sum up The Complete King James Version Audio Bible in three words, what would they be?

Great God's Word!

What about Christopher Glyn’s performance did you like?

I like the way how he read it. Voice is nice. And I like that it's not too fast reading. Even though Audible allow speed changes.

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

I am listening to this book almost every night in bed when I go to sleep. During the first couple of weeks after purchase I played the book every night all night long. You can't finish the whole Bible in one sitting :)
