Editorial Reviews

Review

'...a full show of music, sound effects, and a dazzling array of celebrity voices. The producers...put together a cast of...actors who deliver a rich, diverse rendering of the contemporary Today's New International Version (TNIV) translation in gospel-meeting style. Listeners are treated to a sort of aural kaleidoscope with layers of voices, sound, and music....The lavish production pulls out all the stops....If a modern multimedia production experience is what you're after, enjoy the fine voices and often dynamic dramatized readings.' -- AudioFile <br><br> (AudioFile)

Review

Inspired By...The Bible Experience is exactly what its title indicates, an experience. I've listened to many audio Bibles over the years, but none have achieved what The Bible Experience has, which is to bring the Bible to life in a very real, compelling, accessible and experiential way. I would strongly recommend that you listen to it and share it with others. I guarantee it will change the way you and they engage with the word of God.' -- John C. Maxwell, Author, New York Times bestselling author <br><br>

I purchased the cd's audio Bible and have been happy ever since.

We normally read along in our Bible while listening, and it helps to focus in on the words so much better.

The voices and sound effects really bring the word to life in a new and vibrant way!

I think that this product is a blessing to those that are really trying to take in as much word as possible-- With the limited time we have today, it is about time that someone put the Bible into an ingestible format that is not BORING and TORTURESOME. The voices and sound effects really bring the word to life in a new and vibrant way! I recieved my box yesterday and immediately popped in the first CD! It was like a drink of water on a steaming hot day! I highly reccommend this product to those that cant sit down and read as much as they would like-- or for those who actually retain scripture better by hearing it... "faith comes by hearing....". Be blessed! The sound quality is exceptional.. and the actors are superb!

I love both box sets because, when I read the Bible or just listen to a plain cd I get sleepy or bored, but when I listen to The Bible experience, it's awesome, because actors betray the parts in the Bible and briong it to life!!!! I would suggest these to everyone who thirsts to hear the Bible, but has trouble reading it.

To me the OT was always hard to read.. but hearing the words spoken with expression and voice changes has opened up my mind...
I wish I could get this for everyone I know!

Go out and buy it. When you hear it you will love it, is all I can say.
It's the best dramatization on the market. I wish they had used the same Old Testament voice of God for the New Testament voice of God. Samuel Jackson was just not a good choice for God featured on the New Testament on this CD in my opinion, Blair Underwood was simply awesome as Jesus. He really got it right.
I was really disappointed that Samuel L. Jackson's voice was used for the New Testament voice of God. His voice was just not credible for the role of God in the New Testament. I kept thinking about his role as the crack addict in Jungle Fever and that other silly Pulp Fiction movie. I also could have done without the contemporary Christian songs that unexpectedly popped up between Scriptures in the New Testament. Everything else was so good that I can over look the other parts that I didn't care for.

The realness, passion and energy in these voices were so much better than the other New Testament bible on CD called The Promise but I still bought both. I purchased The Promise because I love the New King James Version and the Bible Experience for its modern translation. The Promise is good but the Bible Experience is great. You will get more than your moneys worth if you buy The Bible Experience. It will not disappoint.

Denzel Washington's voice was just perfect for the Song of Solomon along with his wife Paulette's voice that responded, that was a brilliant choice.

I would like to find out more about who played the voice of God in the Old Testament. His name is Paul Adefarasin. I heard he is a Pastor. He is obviously an anointed and Spirit-filled man of God to portray the voice of God so passionately and not be a Hollywood Actor.

I receivied the new testment a few years back as a gift. The first and last tracks on every disc are promotion tracks. The first time you hear the promotion track it is great: however way over done the 1st and last tracks become annoying at best.
When I purchase the old testment same thing 1st and last track are promotional tracks still annoying. However in the old testament about every few tracks they have added music tracks from various people some who can not sing and just plain SSSSSSsssssscreaming in the mic.(YUCK) Plus the music and backround tracks can be annoying and sometime drown the information form the Bible, if that your thing okay but I find it a distraction from learning the word of GOD.
Be ready to advance the tracks and the beginning and end of every disc, and in the old testment about every four tracks. Had a good product and screwed it up.
Also if you put it on your computer all the disc and tracks read matthew matthew matthew both new and old testament. Hours of typing to straighten it out Track names and disc names ASCAP does not have correct information.

My husband and I absolutely love this! We've always tried to be faithful Bible readers and what a help this has been to us! We normally read along in our Bible while listening, and it helps to focus in on the words so much better. It has truly made the Bible "come alive" for us even after many years of studying the Bible. We have been recommending this for anyone, and especially those people who may have a hard time reading the Bible on their own, while traveling, etc. We now have both the Old and New Testaments and love them both and use them daily!
