Where does The Story, NIV: The Bible as One Continuing Story of God and His People rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This book was far more enjoyable than other audio versions of the Bible I have listened to.
What other book might you compare The Story, NIV: The Bible as One Continuing Story of God and His People to and why?
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.
Did Michael Blain-Rozgay and Allison Moffett do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
Yes. God in particular has an easily recognizable voice.
Any additional comments?
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.
