I can make no comment on the content as for me it is Holy Scripture. However, whilst the NKJV would not be my first choice of (Bible) translation, of which I have several, this is certainly by far my favourite audio Bible. The balance between voice and backing music (and sound effects) is right and the voices are very clear. Personally I would have preferred it if the narrator had given the chapter number at the start of each chapter but this does not detract from the overall quality of this superb production.
