This is for the Max McLean KJV mp3 Bible.

The best reading of the King James ever.

Scourby is the standard, but the audio quality of the master tapes has deteriorated over the years.

Even so, Max McLean has set a new standard. His rendering is not just a reading of the Word, it is an EXPERIENCE of the Word.

The audio quality is excellent, and the volume level is consistent. (The earlier NIV went from very quiet to very loud making it difficult to listen to with headphones or in a car)

Personally, I love the fact that there is NO background music, as I find it distracting.

There is a bit of a pause at the end of each chapter. Some car mp3 players cut off the last few seconds of audio, so why ever they did it, it works for me.

I wanted an mp3 format so I could listen on my mp3 player while I walked and exercised. I'd heard Max McLean on the audio version of biblegateway.com on my desktop and loved his voice. The mp3 version makes his voice portable and I can leave my desktop.
His interpretation is wonderful. He knows what he's reading. And his voice is not that stilted, basso, fake-o sound. This one is like hearing the Royal Shakespeare Company doing Shakespeare. I understand Max is Panamanian, but his voice sounds like he's from the House of Lords. It's human at the same time, though. It helps that he believes what he's reading and knows how to interpret it. This is lively, meaningful and effortless King James.

I love Max McLean's reading. The words are clear and well enunciated. He sounds like a king giving a speech something. Hes up there with James Ear Jones and the guy that use to do all the major film teasers. I think it is an excellent reading however, my mother prefers the free reading for the New Testament from Listeners Bible. I prefer this though. Not only does it have the Old Testament but I prefer the voice

I recently purchased two of the Listener's Bible on cd, read by Max Mclean. I bought one for myself, and one for my wife. I must say that the power, passion, and substance in which Mr. Mclean reads the bible is priceless. I enjoy the speed in which he reads, which allows you to absorb every word of the scriptures.I encourage anyone who wants to hear the word of God read with vivid reality and relevance, then pick up this gem !! No this is not a substitute for the reading,studying,and meditation on the word of God, but this is a great supplement. It gives you the flexibility to hear the word of God as you travel to and from work, around town, or in your home. I am very happy with this investement in my spiritual walk.

McLeans voice is smooth and easy to listen to, he is never monotone or "over the top" melodramatic! I have seen both in Bible readings. This is good narration! Plain and simple. Grace and Peace!

The Listener's Bible has been a wonderful way for our family to hear the word of God on the go. We have used it in the van and during sleep so that we will not have negative things passing into our brain through osmosis. I purchased this product specifically because of Max McLean's reading. He doesn't make Jesus sound tired and uninterested. That is important. I am convinced that Jesus got excited about His messages to the multitude. Max McLean doesn't quite get excited but certainly give Jesus a voice that is more "normal" rather than sleepy.
I recommend listening to this product simply for the enjoyment of the Bible.

The narrator, Max McLean, reads the Bible in a manner that helps you to understand the King James Version (KJV). The influx in his voice, the timing and verbalization of his words, and his accent are perfect for the beauty of the sacred script. If you already are comfortable with reading the KJV, you will enjoy listening to Max McLean read. If you have been hesitant to read or listen to the KJV because of the language, this is where you should give it your first try!
