Well Worth The Purchase

This audiobook of the New Testament was very well done indeed. Gregory Peck, I thought, did a marvelous job at reading the sometimes difficult language of the King James version of the Bible. Excellent job. No music during the readings. Only at the end of books and sometimes chapters.

While listening through this audiobook, my mind became more familar with the Olde English of the KJV. Now when I read the KJV, I hardly have any trouble with the language. And once your mind is comfortable with the Olde English, the KJV reads better than any version out there.

The quality of the audiobook is very good at level 4. The Audiobook downloads in 3 parts. Beautifully Done!

Best reading of the Bible I've heard

Just voice. The word stands alone. No music or artistic to-do needed. And what a voice! Gregory Peck is wonderful in his reading. I would love to hear James Earl Jones read the New Testament and was thrilled to see it was available until I read in the reviews there was piano music in the background. I don't want that. One thing, I can't read this all the way through in one time period. I've been listening over about 6 months, and may listen again. Recommended!

Excellent performance.

Audiofile may think that the performance is "tired", but Peck's reading of the New Testament is exactly what I wanted. No musical score, no cast of thousands; no overblown, Shakespearean dramatization. Just God's word, read clearly and simply. Gregory Peck was a fine choice, and I never tired of hearing his voice.

My only problem has been that the Bible doesn't seem to lend itself well to the audio format. It's too slow for casual listening in the less interesting parts, and it's too fast for serious contemplation.

The only reason I rate this 4 stars instead of 5 is that I would prefer the NIV or even the NKJV over the KJV, but this is the only version that Audible carried at the time. The KJV is especially difficult in audio because the unclear language often requires some time to work through.

Excellent!

Powerfully narrated Bible text. Robust & clear audio, by one of the best narrators of all time. I only wish Gregory Peck had narrated the Old Testament as well. Alas, it will never be.

I enjoy this reading of the bible

I enjoy listenting to the bible and this is my favorite audio bible. It is broken down into three parts which may be an issue for some. Its not for me. I listen to the bible for the spirtual. This reading of the bible touches my soul. The King James is the most poetic version of the bible; combine that with Gregory Peck as the reader and something special happens.

The Bible:The New Testament (Unabridged)

I think Mr. Peck's reading is excellent. I only wish Audible would provide equally good readings of a modern translation; I prefer the New American Standard or the English Standard Version.

Faith comes by hearing,and oh boy does it just!!!

The New Testament has a thread that seems to flow from start to finish. After going through the New Testament in around six weeks, I couldnt wait to get started again. I have discovered truths by listening that I have overlooked many times during reading. It's awesome....get it!!

Jesus tells it like it is

Jesus Christ begins his ministry with a declaration from the book of Isaiah: He has come to set the captives free. He also said, Repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand. A fabulous story that I can never, ever get tired of.
