What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
'I am a lover of the Bible. I own a very large collection of them from all over the world. I have been reading it in Dutch, German and English for most of my 79 years. I cannot live without regular, daily doses of the Word of God. However, I have never 'experienced' the Word of God in the unique way I have since I started listening to The Bible Experience. As a lover of God's Word, you owe it to yourself to regularly listen to The Bible Experience. It will make the Bible come even more alive for you as it has for me, especially when your eyes are too tired to read.' -- Brother Andrew, , Author

“Inspired By…The Bible Experience is exactly what its title indicates, an experience. I’ve listened to many audio Bibles over the years, but none have achieved what The Bible Experience has, which is to bring the Bible to life in a very real, compelling, accessible and experiential way. I would strongly recommend that you listen to it and share it with others. I guarantee it will change the way you and they engage with the word of God.” -- John C. Maxwell, , Author

'The words written in the book of Acts have come to life in our living room as our family has sat listening together to The Bible Experience. The resulting family discussions have ignited conversations with our children about Jesus, the disciples, religion, the growth of the early church and the commitment of the early believers. I am thankful for this quality resource that brings the Word to life. We are telling all youth pastors and parents who come near Student Life about this incredible tool and its potential benefit to young people.' -- Randy Hall, , President

'The Bible Experience is exciting to listen to! If you want to hear a stirring audio recording of the Bible of the highest quality, then The Bible Experience is for you. Listen, and be prepared for an encounter with the Bible that you have never had before but you will certainly enjoy and remember!' -- Robert A. Schuller, , Senior Pastor

“Even if you've read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, you have to listen to Inspired By...The Bible Experience. I guarantee you will walk away with a deeper appreciation and understanding of God's Word having experienced it through that such an amazing dramatic performance. I am strongly encouraging everyone in our congregation to listen to it, listen again, and to share it with others. It is truly remarkable.” -- Dr. Tom Mullins, , Senior Pastor

“As a pastor and a student of the Bible, I have spent most of my life reading it, studying it and preaching from it. It is a never-ending surprise to me how I find more to learn and apply the more I read it. Recently I obtained a copy of The Bible Experience, and to my amazement I found in it a way to experience the Bible that took my appreciation for it to another level. I highly commend The Bible Experience to everyone. You will discover how this incredible high quality, word for word, dramatic presentation of the Bible can take to new heights your appreciation for what the Word can do to change your life.” -- Dr. Robert Jeffress, , Senior Pastor

'When I first heard the impact of this one-of-a-kind recording, I immediately wanted to share it with my friends and staff members. This fully dramatized recording of the entire Bible on CD brings the Scriptures to life in a very real way, with an unprecedented ensemble of distinguished actors, musicians, and personalities. I have listened to it first-hand, and it moved me deeply.' -- Dr. David Jeremiah, , Founder

I received this audiobook as a gift and have been blessed by this treasure. This edition of the Bible is an absolutely wonderful way to experience the Bible. Through the dramatic performances from hundreds of celebrities, great sound effects and beautiful music, you receive a vivid depiction of the Word of God. You feel as though you are right there in the Garden of Eden; skipping down the road and dancing with King David as the Ark of the Covenant was brought to the City of David; looking up at the majestic Temple of God that Solomon built; right in the mist of many battles and other events of the Bible. I am currently up to Psalms and cannot seem to stop listening to it. This is truly a remarkable masterpiece that I plan on purchasing as gifts for others.

I love the Bible Experience. I appreciate all those who contributed to the work so that I can glean from God's Word on a daily basis. I love lighting a fire in my fireplace at night and listening to "God's voice" and to biblical stories on CD. They make it come alive. Its very inspiring that these people served God's purposes and thus brought glory to God!

If you enjoy hearing and contemplating on God's Word or following along in your Bible to catch the subtle differences in the different translations then I highly recommend this product. For the traveler this is a must - get an ipod and enjoy your favorite chapters and verses while "killing time" waiting for that next train or plane. The music and the drama of the speakers is dynamic and adds to the enjoyment of God's Word.

This audio of the Bible brings you into each episode. It is very well done. WIth the exception of a few additions at the end of the New Testament, it is the Word of God. I had always wanted to read the entire Bible but never did. This is a great experience.

Very well done. I really enjoy the natural setting with the background sounds and music. I listen to it in my car everyday. If you have a hard time finding time to read God's word then this is the Bible for you!

I bought my copy on sell from Family Christian Stores. On the CD's each chapter is one file. EVERY file was named wrong. So in order to play the correct book/chapter I had to download it to my computer, rename it, and put it on another CD. Seriously, the book of John was named Revelation. That's not even in the new testament... I contacted the manufacture and they would not exchange it because I had opened it.... Renaming every file was WAY too much work for what I paid. Once I got it set up so it was in the correct order, it's great. But I shouldn't have to go through all that for something I paid so much for! I will definitely NOT buy something produced by Zondervan again!
