The voice of Mr. Jones is very good. However, it was a bit too soft and reverential for my taste. Would it not have been better if it carried a bit more punch and authority?
However, that's a minor quibble when compared to the accompanying 'music'. It was spectacularly horrendous. Saccharine nonsense that destroyed the recording. (And that piano!)
It was the King James bible. Could we not have some music from that period to accompany it? Something appropriate. The english is beautiful and powerful, but how can we listen to it when it's accompanied by that noise?

The narrator is excellent. His voice is deep, yet very soothing.
The only thing I found annoying is the music playing in the background. Personally I think it would be a much more enjoyable listening if there was no music at all.
If you can, lisen to the sample before buying.

This version of the New Testament is read so well. Those who listen out of faith will be rewarded as well as those who will listen because it is good literature. However, why the music background? It is so distracting that the words are hard to follow. I am disappointed that the producers just didn't think that the New Testament would be worthy of consideration on its own terms. I can't understand why James Early Jone's work couldn't stand alone. The producer didn't apparently believe the public can tolerate literature for its own sake and that Jame Earl Jone's isn't worth listening to without something "extra" to carry his work. If you can follow the reading despite the music background, rent it. Otherwise, don't.
