Publisher's Summary

Ever since he became a Christian at the age of forty, it has been Poirot actor David Suchet's dream to make an audio recording of the whole Bible. In between filming the final episodes of Poirot, David Suchet spent over 200 hours in the recording studio to create the very first full-length audio version of the NIV Bible spoken by a single British actor.
Volume 2 of the NIV Audio Bible includes the Prophets, Gospels, Acts and Letters, covering the books of Isaiah to Revelation.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying index to books and chapters will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
The NIV Audio Bible is also available as an app. The app contains the full text of the New International Version (British Text), so you can easily navigate the audio or read and listen at the same time.

Great reading - and an index!

What did you like most about Complete NIV Audio Bible?

I have a couple of other Audible Bibles and this is by far the best. David Suchet is a great reader. In addition, there is no background music, which is a surprisingly big bonus. When listening to the Bible with music in the background, it quickly feels very repetitive. Probably the best bit of this audio Bible is that the chapters match the chapters in the books and there is an index document provided. In the past, I have spent ages trying to find a particular passage in other audio Bibles. Now it's easy!


What about David Suchet’s performance did you like?

David Suchet has a wonderful reading voice and the reading is unhurried and clear. You can (if you want) listen at double speed and it is still clear. Perhaps it could become soporific, but that's not always a bad thing!


Any additional comments?

If you are an Audible Member with a monthly plan and you buy using credits, make sure you buy the two half Bibles (2 credits) rather than the 8 smaller sections (8 credits).

Any additional comments?

If you buy this audiobook you will be surprised to find that all the chapters on the audio are only identified by a list of chapters from 1-510. Yes, really. No mention of the individual prophets or New Testament writers.To find out where, say, you access Ezekiel 15 you have to look it up on an accompanying list sent as a pdf. Hardly handy if you are listening on a country walk! My use of this audiobook has been greatly improved by putting bookmarks at the start of each book. A time consuming effort but worth it. What a pity that the producers of this audiobook did not stop to think, or take advice, on how its listeners might wish to make use of this valuable resource. The Bible is not a book in which one begins in Genesis and keeps going. Well, not usually anyway. Quick, easy access to each individual book is vital. 'Chapter 294' is an almost worthless signifier unless you have a very mathematical brain and can work out that that is Mark 16 or you are able to carry sheets of A4 paper with you everywhere that lists the chapter numbers. Btw if you are trying to find a particular chapter and use the pdf that accompanies the audiobook, the chapters given are incorrect by one digit. If you want Revelation 1 don't go to chapter 490 as per the list: go to 489 instead. It is a petty that despite other comments similar to mine there has been no amendment or modification to the crass system that was initially put in place with this otherwise excellent work. Even with the bookmarks it is still tricky finding a specific chapter in a lengthy prophet like Isaiah. I suppose I should bookmark each of the 66 chapters individually!
