Unlike the First Gospel of the Infancy of Jesus Christ, the events here deal primarily with the birth of the Virgin Mary herself and her own life during pregnancy and up to the birth of Jesus.

The First Gospel of the Infancy of Jesus Christ, also commonly referred to as The Infancy Gospel of Thomas (not to be confused with the apocryphal book simply called the Gospel of Thomas), dates to AD 185 and tells stories of the early events in the life of Christ, including miracles; although, also included are stories depicting the childhood Jesus behaving less sacredly than one might expect, which may be exactly the reason why the infancy gospels were never considered canon by the Church.

I found this gospel amazing and astonishing to listen to. I feel the personality of Jesus from the 4 gospels in the bible match the personality of the child Jesus in this gospel.
It's interesting to listen to the 2 translations of greek and latin and hear the tiny differences, such as where the greek will say 'young man' the latin says 'boy'. From the context of the story its plain that young man is a more accurate description than boy.
The narration is pleasant and soft. Not impeding to the understanding or flow of the story in anyway , as some readers can be.
I recommend this audio book!

If you want just a word for word narration, that is easy to listen to, this audio bible is very very good.
I've listened to a lot of audio studies. I really like this one. There is no running commentary, only an introduction to each book. No opinions of the tutors, no meandering or waffle. Just pure scripture. Narrated in a range of pleasant voices to differentiate the different speakers. A soft variety of music accompanies each chapter, I find it not intrusive at all bit very pleasant once again.
I will listen again to this wonderful version and I strongly recommend it for a basic bible, only downside is there are no apocryphal books but thats fine I can source them elsewhere.

Dr. David Neiman's lectures on Jewish history connect the story of the Jewish people into the larger context of world history. "Joseph and the Exodus" ties the story of Jewish slavery and freedom to archaeological and historical records. "David and Solomon" takes a critical look at the kings of Israel. "The History of the Talmud" is a dramatic account of the development of the Jewish legal system amid a changing political landscape.

Interesting content let down by the narrator and his 'vocal frying'. The book gives a little background information to give explanations and reasonings behind certain practices/beliefs. I didn't feel I had wasted my money at the end of the book..

Mildly interesting and pleasant, it wasn't exactly bursting with information. The narration actually ruined the book. The narrator employs a vocal trend called vocal frying, where she makes her voice croak at the end of most words/ sentences... once noticed it becomes very irritating. In future I will avoid books narrated by this woman.

For thousands of years our ancestors knew that the human body was an intricate and beautiful energy system. And yet, ever since the rise of individualization and industrialization we seem to have forgotten this truth and have distanced ourselves from our higher being. You are more than just a physical body, you are energy. An invisible force runs through our human form and connects us with a higher state of awareness.
