Relying on the work of more than 50 Bible scholars, as well as the input of a 60-member, multi-denominational Advisory Council, the translation committee chaired by J.I. Packer realized its goals of word-for-word precision and accuracy, literary excellence and readability, and depth of meaning. Written in language beautiful enough to be used for public reading, clear enough for preaching and devotions, and trustworthy enough for academic study, the ESV sets a new standard, and is truly a Bible for all people.

"The Holy Bible: New Testament"
I have never heard this version before. I enjoyed listening to it and liked the authority in his voice as he reads the Lords words.
"Expressive, but not too dramatic"
Yes. Over and Over. I am hearing learner.
Expressive timing and intonation that seems appropriate to the content.
No, one book at a time.
The reader used a stereotypical "God" voice which sounded angry and self-righteous. I found this to be very distracting and also contrary to the way that Jesus Christ is usually portrayed.
Unfortunately, the producers have arbitrarily created chapters that have nothing to do with the books and chapters of the New Testament. Therefore, the listener is unable to select particular books (Matthew, Mark, I Corinthians etc.) and listen selectively. I wonder if the producers have ever studied or read the Bible. The New Testament is composed of multiple books and epistles (letters) written by various authors. Most readers(listeners) will want to listen to selected chapters of particular books of the New Testament.
Organize the table of contents to reflect the actual books and chapters of the New Testament like every written version.
Will not listen to this version due to the lack of organized table of contents.
"easy to listen to flows through the bible"
The Bible is our guide to salvation through Jesus Christ
That while I was dead in my sin and seperated from God that Christ died for me
knowing that Jesus made the way for men to be saved
Gods love and grace toward man in that he gave his son Jesus to pay for mans sin
Jesus is the Christ he is God in the flesh he was crucified and then has risen from the dead. There is no other name under heaven that you can be saved but Jesus Christ.
"love the book"
yes this book was very well read by the reader.
The story just comes alive. its all about the Bible and not a bunch of music. The story is just very believable. Narrator is very good at telling the stories.
All of it but I'm mostly into knowing about Revelations.
Revelation and the story of Ruth
