The most ambitious, critically acclaimed presentation of the Bible ever produced
Inspired By... The Bible Experience features a star-studded cast of 400 performers, including 23 Grammy winners, 8 Emmy winners, 5 Golden Globe winners, and 3 Oscar winners. The cast features 2007 Academy Award-winning actor Forest Whitaker as the voice of Moses, along with Angela Bassett (Esther), Cuba Gooding, Jr. (Jonah), Denzel and Pauletta Washington (Song of Songs), LL Cool J (Samson), Eartha Kitt (Serpent), Bishop T. D. Jakes (Abraham), Blair Underwood (Jesus), Samuel Jackson (God, NT only), and Bishop Eddie L. Long (Joel), among others. The Bible Experience uses Zondervan’s most accessible and up-to-date translation, Today’s New International Version (TNIV), and includes dramatic performances set to an original musical underscore by the Prague Symphony Orchestra and Hollywood-style sound design created at Technicolor Studios.
The Bible Experience has received an Audies Audiobook of the Year (the highest honor of the Audio Publisher’s Association), an AudioFile Earphones Award, and a nomination for an NAACP Image Award.
The songs in between confuse me
The Bible reading part is ok- very easy to absorb mentally and follow while I'm busy- but there are song in between chapters- so sometimes you have to skip it to just listen through- but I like some of the songs- worth the money.
Missing a track
I haven’t completed my listening but so far I noticed that there is a track missing of what should be Galatians 5:19-26. I was able to find it on the CD version of TBE so where has this one gone? It should be between track 7 and 8. So that means the numbering is off too. When you listen it’s very obvious a track is missing because there is a lack of continuity like in the transitions between the other tracks. I’m pretty disappointed by this because the rest of the audio is so amazing. Listening to this is another experience that adds to my scripture reading so to have scripture missing is honestly unacceptable. Please fix this!!!
Great, except the interruption songs...
I really did enjoy the books, but unfortunately there are several songs and they come on as you are meditating on the words. You should really have these songs put in between books, and on their own tracks so they can be skipped if your main concern is the word written. They are a distraction in my opinion in the middle of a book or in between chapters.
