This REALLY needs to be indexed

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The performances, music and sound effects are great and provide a vivid and wonderful recitation of the bible BUT there is no way to find the books or verses short of spending a lot of time guessing or book marking sections once you find them. The addition of indexing the sections would make this an excellent audiobook but without it finding sections is extremely frustrating.

Very nicely dramatized!

Excellent audio quality, very nicely dramatized! I love to listen to this audiobook at bedtime. I would even say it has a musical quality - very relaxing. I would, however, voice this complaint: the audiobooks do not list which books start where or the order.

This is definitely worth purchasing!

I can make no comment on the content as for me it is Holy Scripture. However, whilst the NKJV would not be my first choice of (Bible) translation, of which I have several, this is certainly by far my favourite audio Bible. The balance between voice and backing music (and sound effects) is right and the voices are very clear. Personally I would have preferred it if the narrator had given the chapter number at the start of each chapter but this does not detract from the overall quality of this superb production.
