Using the clear, accurate, and easy-to-understand text of the NIV, it allows the stories, poems, and teachings of the Bible to read like a novel.

An easy to understand Bible translation.
This book was far more enjoyable than other audio versions of the Bible I have listened to.
The Bible. The Story is basically an abridged version of the Bible. What they have done is combined stories that were told in multiple places in the Bible into one place. They have attempted to put the stories into chronological order by event. Some stories were completely omitted. However, in these instances the Zondervan people seemed to be careful not to change the meaning of the surrounding passages by these omissions.
Yes. God in particular has an easily recognizable voice.
I think this would be a great listen for someone who has never attempted to read the Bible. It is ideal for new christians and non-christians who know very little about what the Bible actually says. It hits all the "high points" giving the listener a good understanding of the Christian faith. It is abridged in a way that will help keep the listener from loosing interest in the early books of law. It is not a good book for someone wanting an in depth study of the Bible. While nothing is taken "out of context" much of what an in depth study would require is left out. If you have constantly tried to read through the Bible, but never make it, this is a great place to start.
This is an audiobook that I will return to year after year. The Bible came alive in ways I have never experienced before through this audiobook. I am certain I will learn something new each time I listen to it.
I loved the way the book was produced. The different voices for the characters helped me feel like I was watching the Story unfold.
