    Easy way to enjoy The Bible

    My wife and I recently purchased The Bible Experience - The New Testament and we haven't stopped listening to and talking about it. The Bible truly comes alive as you listen to these talented and gifted actors. We have been able to gain new insight and revelation each time we put in another disc. Because we have been so blessed by this purchase we also purchased The Bible Experience - The Old Testament. If you have been wanting to read through the bible, you will find this the most enjoyable way to go from Genesis to Revelation.

    It's a must have, I can't get enough!

    I have listened to this recording of the bible as I have others. The Bible Experience, I must say I heard over and over again. I have yet to get or hear the old testament because I thought it was not out yet. I just happened to finish listening to the New Testament again and decided key in the old and there it was, I am so excited,I have to have this collection also, I can close my eyes and see everything. It's a must have for every believer.

    Excellent

    I LOVED this. I purchased it as soon as it came out, and absolutely love listening to the gospels, especially Luke (my personal favorite). The acting is amazing, and you will feel like you're watching a movie. I still get goosebumps every time I hear it!

    Thrilling!

    This is a copy of the Bible that I am eager to share with friends. I found myself sitting in the car for a few extra minutes so that I could hear to the end of exciting passages.

    Inspired Indeed

    Hear the Beatitudes spoken to you from the mouth of Jesus. The words of Jesus come to life with Blair Underwood in The Bible Experience. I am in awe of the power of the Bible experience. The words, music, background take you to the place where the words are spoken. I have been blessed with comprehension and study of the KJV of the bible, I am having a more enlightened experience with the audio. This is a must have for any family. I am presenting this to my family members for Christmas presents. What better way to honor the birth of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. I listened to the book of Matthew on my daily commute, and received powerful revelations from God's word. I recommend that you read the New Testament Chapters before you listen to the tape to realize the blessing of the Bible Experience. Wonderful casting of the Books of the New Testament.

    Truly An inspiration

    I have waited since last year for this CD release. When I received the email from Gospel.com I saved it until October 6th. I purchased the CD and listened to it immediately and love it. I have purchased copies for family and friends. This is on the top of list for gift giving this holiday season. I have read many versions of the bible since 2003, and to be honest this is the best. I can see the story as it is being told to me. The drama that is accompanied by the reading are fantastic. I love the way the executive producers surround the angel 'Gabriel' with such a voice and the speed of it. This is such an anointing project and I am sure many who NEVER would pick up a bible or attend church services WILL be blessed by this audio version of the bible. As God inspired in the four gospels he meets everyone right where they are and then waits for us to get there. The Bible Experience is living testimony of just that... Missy

    It's not about the 'race' of the actors...

    This is truly an inspired work by those who love God's 'WORD'. Jesus our Lord said it best himself, those who have ears, let them hear. The Word of God delivered in any format is pure to those who have a pure heart and receive it with gladness. Those who don't make study and meditation of the Word a lifestyle choice don't repsect it and make silly comments like some of those I've read. I have one question, did you get the message? Do you know if the word that was being delivered was in proper context or mis-represented? For the record, there are several audio bibles on the market and not once has anyone made a big deal about the race of the person producing it. Let's not spoil this project by emphasing race and not glorifying God for His wonderful work accomplished through Christ Jesus.
