Lovely...needs a section guide. I made one
Would you listen to The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV again? Why?
This is a wonderful recording. I like the performances and the variety of voices. For example, while there is one main narrator for each book there are diff voices for dialogue and the actors for those people are consistent. The voices are well cast and performed. The music in the background rarely bothered me, but is too loud or exciting in a few spots. I find listening to the word to be a good way to 'hear' it in a new way and is a valuable experience. I also love to play it for my children:) The one main problem is the lack of a guide to the 'sections'. I found a guide to 'parts' but my players show sections. This make it impossible to select which book to listen to! I made a guide, figuring out there there is one section for each chapter starting with 2. So if you need a particular chapter, simply add that number to the book's start.

A bargain for one credit
First, the good: This is a terrific bargain for a single credit. For readability, I have most recently relied either upon the NIV or New Living Translations, but I was pleased with the NKJV translation. It is accurate and easily understandable; this translation was suited perfectly for an Audio book. The readers were outstanding, and there was just enough dramatization, music and background effects to keep the stories moving without being annoying or overly-distracting. The sound quality was flawless.
Now, the bad: As other reviewers have detailed, dividing the Bible into 17 tracks is puzzling. Finding any particular passage is laborious and frustrating.
If you are seeking an Audio presentation of the Bible to listen to and experience a cover-to-cover read, you will find this production very much to your liking. If, on the other hand, you are looking for an Audio Bible to add to your library to listen to various individual scriptures, this format is not well suited for such an endeavor; other audio renditions may be more navigable for such a purpose.

Amazing Narration! Impossible to Navigate!
This version of the Bible is the best audio version I have ever heard hands down. This one is treated, almost, like a normal book, but with small (tasteful) sound effects and music. Other versions I have heard either have a terrible narrator or the sound effects and music is so triumphal and overdone it drowns out the Bible it self. Michael York does a fantastic job as the primary narrator. The only gripe is that it is hard to navigate. The books not separated, some seem to be split down the middle and then other books are bundled together. The math says it all about this 66 books only 17 parts. 66 books 66 parts would be easier for a book like the Bible. A normal book split in to chapters would be ridiculous, but Bible readers want to hear a certain book not have to go hunting. Again, just fantastic the first useable audio version of the Bible I have ever used.

Majestic!! I have for many years wanted to go through the scriptures but due to limited eyesight I had all but given up!! Michael York's reading is beyond anything I expected. The music in the background makes it so much more powerful! I listen to it as I go to sleep at night! Pour yourself a cup of tea, sit back in a comfortable chair and prepare to be transported to another place and another time. What a value for one credit!! I am a believer in audible.com! Thank you!!

Excellent rendition of Scripture text
I love having having the background sounds added to the narration. It adds another layer of depth to the already deep text of Scripture. I wouldn't use it to supplement my study, but it's wonderful to just sit and listen to. The only actor I really don't care for is Jim Caviezel as Jesus. I have certainly enjoyed Mr. Caviezel's performances in movies, however there are times when I think he makes Jesus sound weak, almost frail when he should sound authoritative, for example in the book of Revelation. In some other portions of Scripture Jesus' speech would naturally sound quiet and even comforting at times. But He is still the Alpha and the Omega, the Son of God Almighty, to whom all power is given in heaven and earth. At the times when He is demonstrating those attributes Mr. Caviezel falls short, in my opinion.
Overall, this performance of God's Word is excellent and I highly recommend it.

Amazing production word-for-word and get Enhanced!
Without a doubt, get over any bias you have with your favorite bible translation, and get this! Download the enhanced format (64kbps/22kHz) stereo production and use a good set of earphones/earbuds and hold on! This brings to life what it was like to be there when each book was written. No additional wording, no additional explanations, just word-for-word NKJV bible! I am through to 2nd Samuel and can't wait to turn it on again and continue reading. Use this in the off times when you can't read the Book, like in the car, around the house, at lunch time. You will enjoy this. Keep on reading!

Brings the Word to Life
I absolutely love this audio bible! I've read the bible through a few times but listening to this audio book makes the bible more alive to me. Its sad to admit but sometimes when I read my bible I feel sleepy but when I listen to this audiobook keeps me interested. The narrators and background sounds are wonderful. I put this on my ipod and start cleaning my house or do my yard work and I feel closer to God. This is definitely worth a credit to me!

Best Audible purchase I ever made
I listen to this on my way to work every day, and I just completed it a couple of weeks ago. The advertisement on the cover really says it all, "Hear the Bible come alive in dramatic audio theater."
Mind you, I have, in the past, listened to numerous audio Bibles that left me annoyed due to the overwhelming music in the background. At times, it was almost as if whoever came up with the score for those audio Bibles wanted to make the listening experience as annoying as possible with awful music that did nothing but distract from the Word. This is not true for the Word of Promise. There is music in the background, but it is very calming, and I never found it distracting.
What really sets this audio Bible apart from the others is the exceptional quality of the background sounds - not just the music, but the sounds. When people are walking, you hear the footsteps. When they are crying, you hear the sobs. When the tabernacle is being constructed, you hear the construction. When Paul is writing, you hear his pen on the paper. When someone is killed, it is almost too realistic. This is all beautifully edited and mastered to very high quality standards until you feel that you are there, in the Bible, with the characters.
As to the all-star cast, you can almost see Moses crying as he delivers his final sermon knowing that he will never be able to enter the promised land. Richard Dryfuss delivers the voice of Moses with such an exceptional perfomance that you will be crying when you get to that point. Everyone in the cast did an exceptional job at delivering the content with conviction and gravitas.
The only thing, in my opinion, that would have made this work better would have been for the version to have been the Old King James rather than the New King James. That said, I really enjoyed listening to the Bible in a way that I never have before because of this audio recording. Bravo! to the entire cast and to everyone who contributed to it. I am already listening to it, again, and I believe that this is going to be an audiobook that I will enjoy listening to for the rest of my life.

I've always considered dramatized versions of Scripture cheesy and unworthy of The Word despite the good intentions. But this production throws that all out the window.
Genesis 1-4 held me, my wife, and 9 year old son spell bound. My son wanted to go all night.
This is one fantastic production. The sound effects, Michael York's narration, the music...all of it combined make a fantastic impact on the movie in your mind. This is a must have.
I did notice that not every word was narrated, but any time that happened it was pretty irrelevant. It was stuff like "and the Lord said to..."; it wasn't needed because you know God was speaking to Eve. It's a nitpick that really doesn't take away from the production, but is worth noting if your looking to hear every single solitary NKJV word.
Have a listen to the sample. If it peaks your interest and you think you may enjoy listening to it, go with that instinct. You WILL NO be disappointed.
