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.
This is one of the few audiobooks with sound effects and a soundtrack. Considering it’s performed by black talent, this is a truly rare masterpiece.
Like everything but the format
I really like this recording of the Bible. Everything about it is good except the format. It's one audio track for the all of the books. I was really hoping it would be divided by chapters. I downloaded it to find out...and now I know. If you purchase this on CD it will be divided by chapter for each book. If the format isn't important to you then I would recommend this download.
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.
