Publisher's Summary

Human history traced from our once-upon-a-time origins, through the great disaster that nearly wiped the human race from the planet. From an insignificant family of displaced nomads, kings and poets arise who will shape human destiny.
The spinal cord of the world's oldest and most influential book - the story line of the Old Testament reduced to a gripping tale, told with warmth and wit. The essence of the Bible - true to the text, true to the spirit, eminently understandable.

This has got to be the most fabulous synopsis of the Old Testament! I am currently in the eighth month of reading the entire bible from Genesis to Revelation and 'wading' through Ezra... I came across this audiobook by chance and intrigue and, to my deep joy, it has covered the entire Old Testament factually, and coherently, so that it is perfectly understandable!

So much so, that I have immediately purchased To Make a Long Story Short, which is The New Testament version. It promises to be just as good (I hope), given that most of TNT are letters - but Revelation should be mind blowing!

This is not a dry as dust historical rendition, it is as exciting and as entertaining as the Bible is itself. The other thing that bought a smile to my face was, the fact that the dialects for most of the characters ranged from all over the UK! English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish! The Queen of Sheba appeared to be Indian!!! Hahahahaha!

A thoroughly enjoyable listen.
