Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, but I would warn them about the patronizing narration style and recommend the print version.
What other book might you compare The Bible's Cutting Room Floor to and why?
History of the Bible- The Making of the New Testament Canon
by Bart D. Ehrman,The Great Courses
How could the performance have been better?
The narrator speaks clearly and pronounces names and places properly, for the most part (far moreso than most non-fiction narrators tend to do).
The problem is that his style is that of an adult reading "down to" a child. He makes me feel like I am a 6 year old during story time at the public library.
Any additional comments?
There is some highly interesting information in this book. Overall, I think Bart Ehrman's works are a bit better, but you do yourself a disservice if you only look at things from one vantage point. This compliments Ehrman's similar books and Great Courses lecture series.
I found this book for surpassed my expectations. I started with a casual interest in the title but the author and narrator combined to do an excellent job of keeping me very intrigued. I will certainly go on to read more of the recommended works on the subject
