Chapters

I enjoy this version of the Bible. I do not believe it sounds like a computer generated voice and enjoy the voice it has great listening quality. The only thing I wish is that there was an easy way to find a book, chapter and verse. Maybe another time!

Good to Have Bible on Audio

Having read the Bible launching it on audio is a great way to get to know its content in a different pleasant perspective largely thanks to the excellent narrator Mr. Dick Hill.
The advantage of the original paper Bible is its easy quick reference consulting, and it has the feel; of having in our hands a book. A Bible! Nothing will ever replace that!
The advantage of audio Bible is it is easy to listen any time you want and easy portability, just a simple MP3 player or mobile phone will do it!
For those who hate to read no more excuses for not knowing the bible.

Better than ... no NASB at all?

Would you try another book from Foundation Publications and/or Dick Hill?

With all due respect, I have other audiobooks by Dick Hill in which I am very fond of his narration -- just not here. The beauty of NASB's crisp, clean translation, considered by many scholars as the most literate and accurate of all modern translations, becomes lost in this narrative's combination of chronic and irritating name/place mispronunciation, together with its plodding and lumbering style, leading to so much distraction.

Lockman Foundation: Twenty-three years ago the NASB became my Bible of choice, and continues each day to help me understand and experience God's precious Word as none other. What I cannot understand is why I, and many others, still await an audiobook version with narration that reflects its supreme literary style and accuracy, formatted into a logical book and chapter arrangement.

Its the bible

What can I say, its the bible and the narration was good. I did some research before hand and the NASB seems well accepted as one of the better and more accurate English translations currently available.

This fits my purposes, which is to try and finally get through the whole thing. Since I'm just trying to have a proper run through hitting certain sections is not an issue. If you are thinking of using this as a general resource don't, its just kind of silly idea in the first place, that's what book style bibles are for.

However, if you are one of the many who have never managed to find the time to give the full thing a proper read/listen, and you'd like that commute time to mean something for once, then this is a good option.

Can't navigate at all....very inconvenient

Any additional comments?

This is a review of the navigation for this audio Bible, not the Bible itself which gets a enthusiastic 5 stars.
There is no was to navigate this Bible. The Bible is a very large book made up of 66 smaller books each with many chapters. It can be read from cover to cover, but many people prefer to study particular books. With this audio book there is basically 14 different parts to the Bible, each being 5-7ish hours long with no way of telling which one you are going to listen to until you start. I'm going to try to return this Bible and look for an audio bible where I can choose where in the Bible I want to start listening.

I love my bible...

The NASB is a great bible translation. The narration is of good quality. Unfortunately audible divided the audio presentation is such a way it is nearly impossible to find a particular book or chapter in the presentation.

Unless you intend to use this as a listen from beginning to end don't get it. If you would like to be able to find books and chapters select a different presentation on audible.

Excellent narration; not an easy translation

Whatever its other merits - and I'm not a Biblical scholar, so I can't judge from that standpoint - the NASB is not the easiest translation to follow on audio. The vocabulary isn't archaic, but the syntax is sometimes a little gnarled, and some names (like "Lo-Ruhamah" in Hosea) are translated only in the notes, which of course don't make it into the audiobook. Having a hardcopy at hand to follow along helps, but only partly.

Dick Hill, on the other hand, is an excellent narrator. His voice is a very pleasing baritone, and he reads rhythmically and expressively. One point worthy of note here is that the producers decided to include the subheadings in the reading. These short tags, inserted by most Bible publishers to break up and clarify the text, actually do aid in comprehension when listening, and I wish more audiobook publishers made a practice of doing this in their editions of the Bible. Hill is particularly effective at keeping these separate from the text itself.

The sound quality is excellent in the new enhanced format. Not all parts of the title are available yet in enhanced format, but most of the Old Testament (at least up through Ezekiel) is available in enhanced format as of this writing.

No book, chapter or verse direct access.

I enjoy the audible bible, but it is frustrating that I have to guess which of the 14 Parts contains the book, chapter or verse I may want to listen to. An important upgrade of this audible would be to add the ability to go directly to book, chapter and verse. The bible is not a book that is read as a novel, from beginning to end, by almost anybody. It is a book that is studied by sections or individual books, by chapter and/or verse. That is really what I was looking for when I bought it. I enjoy listening, the reading is done well, but this lack of ability to navigate the bible would have me returning it for a refund if that were possible, and trying another approach.

Wish I could search

Everyone should read through the Bible at least once so I chose this audio version to listen to on the way to work. The narrator does an excellent job.
I would like to be able to search for a specific book or chapter to listen to and can't find any way to do it. The Bible is uploaded as 14 sections, with no TOC.
