I loved the download version so much I went out and bought the CD's just to make sure I have hard copies as well as the MP3.
The dramatised versions brings the Bible alive and makes its very exciting.
I am very satisified with Audible so far and look forward to purchasing more material

Would you listen to The Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible: NKJV again? Why?
This is a wonderful recording. I like the performances and the variety of voices. For example, while there is one main narrator for each book there are diff voices for dialogue and the actors for those people are consistent. The voices are well cast and performed. The music in the background rarely bothered me, but is too loud or exciting in a few spots. I find listening to the word to be a good way to 'hear' it in a new way and is a valuable experience. I also love to play it for my children:) The one main problem is the lack of a guide to the 'sections'. I found a guide to 'parts' but my players show sections. This make it impossible to select which book to listen to! I made a guide, figuring out there there is one section for each chapter starting with 2. So if you need a particular chapter, simply add that number to the book's start.

First, the good: This is a terrific bargain for a single credit. For readability, I have most recently relied either upon the NIV or New Living Translations, but I was pleased with the NKJV translation. It is accurate and easily understandable; this translation was suited perfectly for an Audio book. The readers were outstanding, and there was just enough dramatization, music and background effects to keep the stories moving without being annoying or overly-distracting. The sound quality was flawless.
Now, the bad: As other reviewers have detailed, dividing the Bible into 17 tracks is puzzling. Finding any particular passage is laborious and frustrating.
If you are seeking an Audio presentation of the Bible to listen to and experience a cover-to-cover read, you will find this production very much to your liking. If, on the other hand, you are looking for an Audio Bible to add to your library to listen to various individual scriptures, this format is not well suited for such an endeavor; other audio renditions may be more navigable for such a purpose.
