Starred Review. This is not your grandmother's recorded Scripture. The Bible Experience breathes new life into the pages of the bestselling book of all time, enthralling the listener with its energy, wit, adventure, romance and power. The New Testament captured the Audiobook of the Year honor in 2007; now with the entire Bible available, the complete work has set the standard for excellence that is maintained across 85 hours. Of the more than 400 cast members, picking out favorites is harder than a rich man going through the eye of a needle, but there are some standouts. Robert Guillaume plays Noah with a wisdom that warrants God's mercy. Faith Evans, MC Lyte and others make the music and lyricism of Psalms come to new life. Cuba Gooding Jr. reminds us why he won an Oscar with his portrayals of the recalcitrant Jonah in the Old Testament and the ultimate traitor Judas in the New Testament. The Song of Solomon soars as Denzel and Pauletta Washington bring the ancient love poetry into the here and now. This is not Charlton Heston declaiming page after page of a dusty tome. The Bible Experience pulls you in and makes you part of what is arguably the greatest story ever told.
