I bought this for James Earl Jone's exceptional vocal talent & was disappointed that he only read the New Testament... until I listened to it.
THIS PRODUCT IS ONLY WORTH BUYING FOR JON SHERBURG- who until now I have never heard of. I find it truly ironic.
I would think that the voice of Darth Vader & Mufasa - world class actor James Earl Jones would have an excellent reading voice. It appears to me that he didn't try or didn't care enough read eloquently because of his status. His reading is almost glib. His cadence is terrible. His enunciation is dry & he breaths very loudly. Anyone on his level should know how to mask their breath.
I work with editing Bible lessons & I record scripture readings form time to time. IT IS NOT EASY. The old English of the King James version can be tough to get through smoothly. It takes patience & effort. It's a task not to be taken lightly. It's the everlasting word of God. It contains the mysteries of eternal truth, so it doesn't read like a movie script & was never meant to. I pay a lot of attention to tone & inflection, etc... As much as I was disappointed by James Earl's inexcusably bad reading, I was amazed & impressed by Jon Sherberg's reading of the Old Testament.
Jon's pronunciation is PERFECT. I have never known anyone to demonstrate traditionally accurate pronunciation of names & places. That alone is a lot of language work. He actually makes lineage lines fun to hear!! Jon changes the pitch of his voice to add emphasis. He can shift it from being high & thin to deep & textured! He reads with a consistent voice but his delivery is very dramatic & intense. His cadence & tone are outstanding. He reads just a little faster than I prefer, but if I had to record the entire Old Testament I would probably read faster too - if I could do it without affecting the quality of my delivery! He brought TALENT!
James Earl has talent for sure, but he didn't bring it.
BUY THIS unless you can get Sherburg's Old Testament separately.
If you're looking for a clean smooth engaging experience with the word you won't be disappointed.
James Earl Jones and Jon Sherberg both have great reading voices. The voice pacing and pronunciation is Excellent.
Also, there are no back ground noises, music or people talking / reenactments, etc, which makes it easier to focus on the words and content.
Well Done James Earl Jones and Jon Sherberg..
Nevertheless, don't think that you're going to get Darth Vader if you buy this CD set. You're not. James Earl Jones speedily runs through the New Testament without slowing down anywhere, to inject any feeling or emotion into the text. Jones is doing nothing more than just reading words, but he may be following the instructions of the producers. It's as if Jones is emotionally disconnected from this project.
James Earl Jones is a mega-talented actor, yet his reading of the New Testament fails to tap into his vast abilities. I blame the producers--Topics Entertainment--for that.
The Old Testament reader, Jon Sherberg, does a much better job.
