What the Critics Say

"Eric Martin narrates the holy Bible from the heart, and with full respect for the contextual settings of the words he reads. He is a passionate reader, and his conviction cannot but impact the listener. His command of the poetic language of the King James Bible brings out its incredible richness, revealing aspects of its truth which would otherwise be lost. I can therefore fully endorse this excellent narration, and encourage others to benefit from listening to it." (Bishop Timothy J. Walker, Fort Worth, Texas)

Very Disappointed

I downloaded this to listen to while out jogging and walking. The narration is at a very rapid pace in almost a monotone. There is no emotion to the reading. It is so uninspiring it becomes white noise. I am looking for another reading that can keep my attention.

Very Clear Diction

What made the experience of listening to The King James Audio Bible the most enjoyable?

Every word is clearly, meticulously pronounced, including every difficult Bible name.


What did you like best about this story?

The Bible tends to be difficult to understand because of the old King James English. Because of this it tends to be difficult to read. In audio book form I'm finding it is much easier to follow and understand.


Which character – as performed by Eric Martin – was your favorite?

Some of the reviewers are critical of Eric Martin's reading performance. Remember, he is reading this as an audiobook, not commenting on it or dramatizing it as as clergymen often do. Eric Martin is speaking every word of the Bible as succinctly as possible. After listening to it a while I really do agree with this sort of neutral approach.


Any additional comments?

Face it -- few people will go to the effort of reading the Bible cover-to-cover as they would other types of books. This audiobook version of the Bible is a tremendous value and I wish I would have thought of purchasing it long ago. No matter how many sermons you've sat through, no matter how many verses you've turned to, if you listen to the Bible in this audiobook form you will likely find yourself quite surprised as I have by the actual content of this book. Don't be put off by the neutral reading style -- the Bible stories themselves are the true content.
