A different feel: Yes, there is a different feel to this project. First, the cast is different (some actors are the same, but they play different roles), the director is not Jobe Cerny (though he was an assistant director) and the music is fresh.
A different actor for the role of Jesus: For those of you who were disappointed with Jim Caveizel's performance in the WOP, this audio NT is for you. Neal McDonough is outstanding in this role. Jesus was the greatest storyteller of all time, so the actor has to be good enough to convince you of this. Neal sounds incredible doing the sermon on the mount.
It's a Catholic product: Catholic's that took a chance on the WOP will want this product because it was recorded for them. Yes, Carl Amari is Catholic as is most of cast. However, I do believe that non-Catholic's will purchase this product as well (I am not Catholic).
Revamped sound effects: The sound effects occur more often and they are always appropriate. For instance, when Jesus is healing the sick, you can hear people coughing in the background, when Herod is killing the children, you can hear many children crying out accompanied by the sound of swords cutting into flesh.
Different Translation: I probably own over 20 different translations, not counting the one's on my computer. Some people will buy this product because of their love for the RSV.Read more ›
I decided though that $30 is a really good price and I would give it a try. I was immediately memorized. First, the RSV-CE edition is one of the finest translations of the Bible, both for devotion and study. Second, this program is superbly produced. It is never *boring* to listen to this presentation of the Bible being read verbatim. I worried that it might sound like some audiobooks with an author reading off the page like Ben Stein. The sound effects, with the characterizations of biblical figures through different actors made me feel like I was there, with Jesus, through the Gospels. The letters are just as well done, and Revelation is an engrossing presentation.
The sole downside is the packaging. No, the packaging is not bad - it is creative and well thought out - but still comes in the standard cardboard sleeves that can scratch discs. I recommend pitching it and putting the CDs in a better case of their own.
Every church should own a copy, Protestants should not be afraid to give it a try (there is no difference in our New Testament), and individuals who travel in the car alot, have kids, run or exercise, or just enjoy books on tape will get a tremendous amount from this entry. It gets my HIGHEST recommendation.
Please buy this~ I say this and I'm not selling it. You will be very happy with it. The readers are excellent and the "dramatization" part is audible (such as the occasional crowd noise...animal sounds...wind, water etc) but it is not a distraction from the actual text...admittedly this was something I was concerned about. It aids in helping with the "being there" effect without actually being bumped on the leg or forehead by a stray donkey kick. If they could find a way to add "taste and smell" (donkeys aside) it would be even better. I'll ponder that one.
Buy it...you'll love it.
