I bought the cassette version of this way back in 1990, it quickly went out of print, then Johhny had his big come back in 1994 and died a legend, seems they bringing many of his stuff back and I think its great.
John reads the New King James Bible (King James basically but some wordage changed to modern terms).
He reads it so goodm you can sit and listen and follow along, retention and recall is great too, you'll be amazed how well you can then retell stories in Matthew per-say to your friends and they will think you are some scholar.
This is a excellent product, maybe not so much so on DVD, but on CD, you can listen in your car, at home, where ever.
enjoy

This Johnny Cash DVD and CD is awesome, though I haven't looked at the DVD yet. The CD is one I have been looking for for years and I was not disappointed. It is well worth the money to buy.

This DVD is such a pleasure to listen to and watch. The voice of Johnny Cash truly makes this presentation a treasure. Often go to sleep with this on. Nice feature is that it plays continuously so you can wake up to it too. Easy to navigate if you're looking for a specific book and chapter.

Johnny Cash may have portrayed himself as an outlaw during his performances. But he could not have cared more about his faith in Jesus. He was a dedicated Baptist, and he considers his reading of this Bible one of his most important works.

As a Catholic, I prefer the "Revised Standard" myself. But the "New King James" Bible is a respectable version. And as far as Protestant Bibles go, I do respect it. Very quickly, the "New King James" Bible is a direct revision of the 1611 "King James" Bible. In the latter 1900s, certain powers felt the "King James Bible " was a good but flawed Bible. They felt it needed to be updated, but they had reservations about previous revisions of it. Hence, the 1979/82 "New King James Bible."

Now to Mr. Cash himself. He does a very nice job of reading this Bible. You can of course read along with the NKJV if you wish. But if you don't happen to have that version on hand, no problem. What Mr. Cash is reading appears on the screen. Hearing the Bible in chronological order is of course an option. But what's nice is you can choose the book and chapter as well. So you can choose to jump to readings for Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Ash Wednesday, Lent, Holy Week, etc. Or, you can just begin a book and let Mr. Cash go!

One thing Mr. Cash does with superb skill is that he can judge how to change his voice depending on the readings. He sounds very devout when he is reading St. Paul's letters. He sounds very open and pious when he is reading the Christmas story. He's very focused when he reads Jesus' teachings. And he has just the right amount of anger when he reads Jesus' frustration with the Jewish authorities.

And don't accuse Mr. Cash of being cheap here.

This is a DVD/CD with Johnny Cash reading the New Testament. It has been used over and over again on a daily basis. The computer screen shows the page of the Bible being read, while the voice of Johnny Cash reads what is on the page. Soothing to the ears, and Uplifting to the soul.

just what I was expecting, you can read the whole New Testament on your TV or listen to Johnny read it, plus a cd of his gospel music

It is okay but I wish there was a way to be able to listen to it in the car. Only works in a DVD player and I don't want to read it, I want to listen to his voice as he reads it. But I haven't found a way to do this yet.

I really like Johnny Cash's voice reading the Bible and the read along video is a nice feature, but this "like new" DVD doesn't function properly in either my PC optical drive or my DVD player - you can't navigate the DVD, it simply doesn't work. I enjoy Gospel music but was disappointed with this CD - not the best from the Johnny Cash library.
If the DVD functioned properly I would have given it another star.
UPDATE: They may have said 'like new' in the listing, but after a thorough cleaning they worked perfect - added another star.
