I wish I chose another

I am disappointed because there is no way to choose a particular book or verse in this audio-book. It is the Bible after all and chapter and verse are quite important. The background music is distracting and I've fallen asleep many times while listening, maybe over dramatization is the right format.

Good narration, distracting music

This would be one of my favorite Bible audiobooks if the music were less distracting. It's not so much that it's repetitive -- though it is, at times -- as that it's sometimes too loud.

Ronnie Meeks is a great storyteller, and the NCV is probably one of the best translations for audiobook listening; it's a translation, not a paraphrase, but it sticks to a simple vocabulary and uses straightforward syntax. It's similar in a lot of ways to the CEV or GNT versions but is (in my opinion) better than either of those.

I'm hoping that this will be made available in Audible's new enhanced format. There's a good possibility this will smooth out the clash between music and narration, as it did on Audible's version of The Bible Experience.

One note about the way music is used here. Each chapter has its own musical background. The music varies in quality (some is quite good, some mediocre); all selections are composed, or at least recorded, in a loop, so it can play through the whole chapter regardless of how long the chapter is. The music usually fits the mood of the beginning of the chapter, though sometimes, if there are abrupt transitions within a chapter, it doesn't always fit by the end. Still, I find that having the music helps in listening. If the volume-control issues get resolved, so much the better.

really annoying music

this is very poor, has music playing all the time behind the narrator. Also, cannot locate a book of the Bible, verse etc. Impossible to use

Not my favourite version

If you like this version then this is a good resource. However, it was not for me. Again, there are difficulties in locating specific Books / Chapters. Good for listening in Biblical order though.
