[Editor's Note: The following is a combined review with the NIV AUDIO BIBLE NEW TESTAMENT.]--The New International Version, begun in 1967 and published in its complete form in 1978, is not only one of the most widely popular English translations, but it also is among the most effective at finding the balance between accuracy and accessibility. These audio adaptations come in several flavors: the entire Bible on 64 compact discs or 48 cassettes, or the New Testament only on 16 compact discs or cassettes. All come in attractive carrying cases. Each of the Bible's 66 books is introduced with a short overview, most of which--even for the Old Testament books--take a strong evangelical Christian point of view. The production is nicely done, with subtle musical accompaniment running through-out and a massive cast of performers. Performance quality is mixed. Production editors made special efforts to guarantee consistency of characterization and name pronunciation, but some performances are weaker than others. All in all, an attractive, well-produced, and, considering its sheer size, economical choice. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Some people don't like the idea of having to group the chapters into separate folders, and still others doesn't like the chapter breaks since some chapters are quite long. In my personal experience, the chapter breaks gives the listener MP3s that are about two-five minutes long for each chapter being read.
As an individual with a print-related disability, I buy audio books and I'd need to convert the audio format into MP3 format and I group files into chapter folders. I use a digital talking book player called Victor Reader Stream. With this player, I can pause the reading and resume mid-sentence. If I were to use a commercial player (say an iPod), the reading goes too fast. With my DTB player, I can slow down the reading to the pace where I can comprehend the material.
I also like to buy a large-print version of the book (in this case, a large print bible) and follow along. I usually study for anywhere between 30mins to 1 1/2 hours per sitting. And with the MP3 version, I can always replay the book or particular chapters that I need to hear (and study) again. That's a plus.
I was unsure about how the dramatized bible compared to the print version. So I do follow along with a print version, and it's the same thing. Because I can replay tracks that I need more study on, I find that the dramatize version really sinks in. Which is a good thing.
To close on the lack of folders for each book, the publisher doesn't really know how the end user (the reader and listener) will use the product since there's a lot of different MP3 players on the market. 4 out of 5.
1. Copy all the mp3 files from the CD to a folder on your hard drive (doesn't matter where. I saved mine to my desktop).
2. Open iTunes, and click File > Add Folder to Library.
3. Now select the folder where you put the mp3 files. Give it a moment to import the files, and you're done!
After that is complete I typed in "Zondervan" in the itunes search bar so it would bring up everything that I imported. The books of the Bible will be out of order so click on "Artist" and it will arrange the books of the Bible in order. I hope this helps!! God Bless!! :)
