Publisher's Summary

The New English Standard Version translation is founded on the belief that the words of the Bible are the very words of God. Setting itself apart from other translations by sacrificing neither accuracy nor readability, the ESV is an "essentially literal" translation that seeks to duplicate the original texts while taking into account the differences between modern English and the original languages. Relying on the work of more than 50 Bible scholars, as well as the input of a 60-member, multi-denominational Advisory Council, the translation committee chaired by J.I. Packer realized its goals of word-for-word precision and accuracy, literary excellence and readability, and depth of meaning. Written in language beautiful enough to be used for public reading, clear enough for preaching and devotions, and trustworthy enough for academic study, the ESV sets a new standard, and is truly a Bible for all people.

Expressive, but not too dramatic

Would you listen to The Holy Bible again? Why?

Yes. Over and Over. I am hearing learner.

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

Expressive timing and intonation that seems appropriate to the content.

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

No, one book at a time.

Poorly Organized

What would have made The Holy Bible better?

Unfortunately, the producers have arbitrarily created chapters that have nothing to do with the books and chapters of the New Testament. Therefore, the listener is unable to select particular books (Matthew, Mark, I Corinthians etc.) and listen selectively. I wonder if the producers have ever studied or read the Bible. The New Testament is composed of multiple books and epistles (letters) written by various authors. Most readers(listeners) will want to listen to selected chapters of particular books of the New Testament.

What could Various have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Organize the table of contents to reflect the actual books and chapters of the New Testament like every written version.

What didn’t you like about Marquis Laughlin’s performance?

Good performance.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Will not listen to this version due to the lack of organized table of contents.
