Essential Listening for your Spiritual Life

When I was young, I experienced great difficulty reading and understanding Shakespeare. I was bottom of the class. I then bought an audio copy of the story. I understood it much, much better. Subsequently, I was the only class member who passed the examination.

How much more difficult it was for me to fully comprehend 66 books written by 40 authors - the Holy Bible. In the past, my goal was to be able to say that I had read the whole Bible at least once in my lifetime. I had made attempts to read and understand the whole Bible - but the result was that I had simply read the words without amassing the totally of the message.

Fortunately, I heard the NIV version of the Bible by Max Maclean on the UCB Bible network. From all the English-speaking actors that I heard reading the Bible here was someone that authoritatively and emotionally conveyed the totality of the God's Word. To state the obvious, I had literally 'heard' God's Word for the very first time. I chose to purchase the more informative ESV version. For an example, visit ESV.org - where you can read and listen alongside Max Maclean. This is the best reason for buying an iPod to listen on the go.

For the first time in my life I have been able to connect all the dots of the message in the Old and New Testament - in a comparatively short space of time. Listening for an hour per day you can hear the whole Bible in 10 - 12 weeks. The reality is that you'll probably want more than an hour per day, simply to answer the question of `what happens next?'

The bottom line is that this is so important for your salvation, as an additional item to the written Word.

Love it

Good performance. Hard to navigate chapters. Easy to listen to and hear. The chapters were present then all disappeared in an update. Still an essential collection
