Is the Focus God's Word or the music?

I tend to agree with many of the above comments. Mr. Jones has, as always, a wonderful voice, clear deliverance/vocal inflections and proper pacing. BUT the piano is often distracting. I'd be able to listen to the Word of God better without the music.

Background music

The narrator is excellent. His voice is deep, yet very soothing.
The only thing I found annoying is the music playing in the background. Personally I think it would be a much more enjoyable listening if there was no music at all.
If you can, lisen to the sample before buying.
