Before you could tuck it under your arm, before you could bring it up on your phone - you did not read scripture, you listened to it. For centuries, the only way to access God's word was to hear it read aloud in public gatherings. Today, many are blessed to own personal printed copies of the Bible, but there is a surprising benefit to hearing the scriptures read aloud, as it was for so many generations. Verses you have read many times will impact you in a new way when you hear them through the NIV Listener's Audio Bible.
Read in a single voice with subtle background music, Max McLean's skillful, engaging, but never overdramatized style will bring God's word to life during your personal and family devotion times, group Bible study, or weekday commute. Listen to just 13 minutes a day, and you'll get through the entire Bible in a year. Or listen to six minutes a day to hear the New Testament twice a year. Max McLean's skillful narration will help you understand, memorize, and enjoy God's word.

"WISH IT WAS BROKEN INTO THE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE"
I LIKE TO STUDY DIFFERENT BOOKS INSTEAD OF GOING FROM THE BEGINNING TO END WITHOUT IT ALL RUNNING TOGETHER LIKE ANY OTHER BOOK
this would be a five star rating if only the listener could locate the books of the Bible and find some way to determine what is on each illustrated disk. It will take much effort and time to download and note (on paper somewhere) the contents of the 37+ parts of this Bible. The reader is excellent.
"The Bible Is Great...Navigating Not So Much."
The Bible is broken down into 20 segments, with multiple chapters in each segment. There are no bookmarks for OT and NT or books of the Bible. This would be so much easier to use if the books and chapters were broken down like the Bible to easily navigate. I was disappointed that this wasn't organized any better.
"Needs to be broken down into Books of Bible."
Extremely hard to follow. Needs to be broken down into books in Bible. I had to listen and then write on a piece of paper which books were contained in which part! Very time consuming.
"Max narrate in a way that makes this enjoyable"
The bible is made easy to listen when narrated by Max.
Learning the bible.
I plan to listen to this over one year.I love to listen while I drive.
"File Totally Corrupted"
It would be nice if the darn book was intelligible. I worked with an Audible employee and he recognized that the file was corrupted.
If I could understand him, yes.
Performance fine. File was corrupted totally.
I want my money back!
"great version of audio bible."
As a Christian I believe the narrator did a good job. the background ambiance was great for the short pauses and it drove home the message of the Lord. May this recording be a help to your faith as it has been to mine.
"The NIV Listener's Audio Bible"
Staci at Grace Community Church in Fort Smith Arkansas gave me a compact Zondervan NIV Bible end of 2016. I can listen to this Audio Bible and follow along in my Bible. I want to read through the whole Bible this year. I have a hard time staying focused and this is helping me so much and
making it so enjoyable. Thank you for providing this audio Bible!
"very well done!!"
loved the narrator!!! this version made me feel like I was listening to them in person.
