Poor Organization of Sections

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I'd be hesitant. The organization of the sections seems random and isn't marked. I would like to see the sections organized so that I could glance at the various sections and know which books of the Bible were in that section.

What other book might you compare The Word of Promise Audio Bible Old Testament NKJV to and why?

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.
