Excellent performance.

Audiofile may think that the performance is "tired", but Peck's reading of the New Testament is exactly what I wanted. No musical score, no cast of thousands; no overblown, Shakespearean dramatization. Just God's word, read clearly and simply. Gregory Peck was a fine choice, and I never tired of hearing his voice.

My only problem has been that the Bible doesn't seem to lend itself well to the audio format. It's too slow for casual listening in the less interesting parts, and it's too fast for serious contemplation.

The only reason I rate this 4 stars instead of 5 is that I would prefer the NIV or even the NKJV over the KJV, but this is the only version that Audible carried at the time. The KJV is especially difficult in audio because the unclear language often requires some time to work through.
