Editorial Reviews

About the Actor

The precise, mellifluous voice of Alexander Scourby, trained in Shakespearean roles in the 1930's and perfected in radio dramatic parts in the 1940's, has become a well-known sound on Broadway, in motion pictures, and on television, where as Harriet Van Horne has observed, he is "the most sensitive and knowing narrator in the business." His most appreciative audience, however, is found among the nearly 80,000 borrowers of Talking Books, the recordings of literature produced under the supervision of the Division for the Blind of the Library of Congress for the use of the legally blind. Scourby, who has recorded about 300 books for the blind, has described this as "the one work that really means something to me." Nelson Coon, a former regional librarian in the Library of Congress' program for the blind, has observed in the letters column of the Saturday Review (September 9, 1961): "The dependence on and satisfaction in the voice of Alexander Scourby among blind people is something you would not believe unless you had been a librarian."

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent narration highly recommended March 7, 2004
Format:DVD
As previously mentioned, the series comes on two disc; old and new testament. As the disc begins, you will see the holy bible in book form laying on an alter in a stain glassed church. The book opens and you pick which book from the bible you wish to read; next the page turns and you get to pick which chapter you wish to read or review. then that book you wish to read from opens and you follow along whith the narrator.In the "options" section in the book you may choose 1.play one book at a time 2. play in entire old testament. or 3. review the photos. (about 200)
Stephen Johnston is an excellent narrator but dont think this a a boring monolog. Additional voices are used when a charactor is mention; such as Moses or Abraham etc, plus sound effects such the sound of rain during the story of the great flood in Genesis, and troops marching around the walled city of Jerico. futher inhance the nuance of this series. I'm still in the old testement but had to express my pleasure with this reading of the bible.
this would make an excellent and thoughtful gift for someone who has difficulty reading or may be vision impaired.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good narration but not perfect !!! July 14, 2004
Format:DVD
It's for the first time that the entire scriptures have been made available on DVDs making it a whole new experience for everyone to listen to the scriptures. The DVD set has two DVDs - One for the Old Testament and other for New Testament. Stephen Johnston, with his clear, expressive baritone voice, is one of the foremost narrators of the Bible and he delievers excellent word-for-word rendition of the popular New King James Version Bible over a soft instrumental background. However, there are some shortcomings too. The pace with which the scriptures are narrated is not consistent throughout. Though most chapters of the Bible have been read quite nicely, some have been narrated in quite a hurry. Chapters like Revelation 13 and 17 have been read at such a lightening pace as if the DVD storage space was running short. The Gospels however, have been read beautifully by Stephen Johnston. In the Old Testament DVD also, some chapters have been read speedily. It may be due to the fact that some chapters like those in Revelation are not read much by the christians and hence the narrator took the liberty of reading them hurriedly.

Another improvement in the DVD could be the enlargement of the text of the scriptures being displayed on the screen so that one can read it also quite comfortably even from a distance. Presently, the verses are shown on both pages of the Bible in a open book layout and are not easily discernible. One option could be that only one page containing scriptures is displayed on the screen. The page may look like a scroll used in the older times.

The images stored in the DVD though beautiful, are not enough as they do not show many of the important places in the Holy Land mentioned in the Bible.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay--but don't let it replace your bible book October 2, 2003
Format:DVD
The entire bible is narrated over two discs--one disc for the Old Testament, and another for the New Testament.
The only feature besides the reading and showing of biblical passages are several pictures that one might read about in the scriptures; the pictures are the same on both discs.
The reading is fine. However, LEVITICUS 18 sounds like it was read by a different narrator--the reading was a little faster.
If you're planning to buy the DVD, don't throw away your bibles to replace them with this DVD. The best way to learn is to read each verse and let it absorb in your head before continuing on to another verse; the DVD won't stop for you after the reading of each verse--thus, no time to reflect and absorb the verse.

5.0 out of 5 stars I previewed this and it was great! April 26, 2003
By Boone
Format:DVD
There has never been a Bible like this! You get to hear the Dramatized KJV with the beautiful voice of Stephen Johnston...Plus! you can read along with Scripture on your TV screen. You can even go to Chapter and Book with a touch of your remote. And...you have a wonderful library of crisp photos of the Holy Land. What a deal and what a wonderful way to hear and see the Bible come to life! You cannot get anything like this anywhere else.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bible on DVD January 21, 2005
By Shannon
Format:DVD
It's worth buying, especially if you're someone who isn't sure how all of the names, etc. are pronounced. It surely doesn't replace your Bible, but it's nice to play in the background, whether you're cleaning the house, or trying to relax and refocus after a rough day.

However, some of the chapters are read too hastily!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Idea December 4, 2003
By BERTAB
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Johnston's reading the scriptures as you read along is an excellent idea. There is a section of nice Bible pictures. There are pictures in the text that are entertaining, but I really appreciate the plain Bible reading.
Johnston reads fast and well. The scripture passages are there on screen for you to read along or not. I really really enjoy these discs. I use them when I am tired at night and I can read longer and faster along with Johnston. Now even my husband doesn't mind joining me as we substitute a silly sitcom with the Word of God. A TRUE BLESSING. GREAT FOR TRIPS WITH A PORTABLE DVD PLAYER.

5.0 out of 5 stars So simple and so astounding! July 8, 2003
Format:DVD
Bible study is so enhanced by this DVD. As an individual at home ro as a group...you can hear the Word and read it at the same time. Plus it's dramatized with actors and sound effects. The Word of God has never been more accessible. Thank you Stephen Johnston and thank you whoever found out how to put 17 hours on one disc...what a new world. Watch and Listen!

It's a good DVD to help absorb the Bible if you're reading it. But that's all. I was expecting live action. It's just page after page of the old and new testaments on screen.
