If we think it's tough now...

Would you consider the audio edition of Joshua to be better than the print version?

Life during the days of Joshua and the Israelites who conquered Caanan was miserable, brutal and short for both conqueror and conquered. But it still seems terrible to think of wiping out all the inhabitants of the land so that they could live in their towns and settlements. The Media Group that does The Bible Experience has done another great recording with voices and background sounds and music to heighten the experience. The only thing that would make it seem more real is to feel the heat and smell the aromas of that place.

What other book might you compare Joshua to and why?

I would compare it to Exodus because of the battle scenes and seeing how God is working through this band of followers who are threatened with annihilation every time they win a battle.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narrators provide a sense of reality and excitement.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listen to audiobooks as I drive to and from work every day, so listening to it all in one sitting is not ever going to happen, but I appreciate the fact that they do not give chapter announcements. That would be very distracting and make it seem more like a book than a story.

Outstanding production.

Would you consider the audio edition of Joshua to be better than the print version?

Yes. This audio version has excellent sound effects and the right ratio of music to words. The producers have chosen very talented readers to play the roles of Joshua, God; the army commanders and the kings against whom Joshua's army fought. The narrative is brilliant and the story one of the most exciting military campaigns in the Bible. Why, to my knowledge, a movie has not been made of this book of Joshua, mystifies me. It is excellent material. My wife, who listened to some of it with me, said that she "felt goosebumps" all over at certain times. Definitely the best and worth buying.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Both Joshua and God were my favorite characters because the roles played in this recording bring out the strength of the warrior Joshua, without shame, before Almighty God. God's words are interpreted and spoken in a wise and measured manner, which makes a perfect contrast between the two.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Everything I have said above already covers how, to my mind, it is the narrators who bring this story to life in an exciting and brilliantly presented way.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The Warriors of God.

Any additional comments?

Buy it. It is one of the best audio-books from Audible I have (and I have 63). It will give you strength, comfort and encouragement especially if you are feeling in a down mood. It is very virile and exciting.
