Ever since he became a Christian at the age of forty, it has been Poirot actor David Suchet's dream to make an audio recording of the whole Bible. In between filming the final episodes of Poirot, David Suchet spent over 200 hours in the recording studio to create the very first full-length audio version of the NIV Bible spoken by a single British actor. Volume 1 of the NIV Audio Bible includes the Law, Histories and Poetry, covering the books of Genesis to Song of Songs.

What did you like best about Complete NIV Audio Bible, Volume 1: Law, History, Poetry? What did you like least?

So you hire David Suchet to read the entire Bible and he does a Magnificent job as you would expect. Then you package it all up and decide not to put in any labels on the chapter makers. This is the Bible, a collection of BOOKS and those books have Chapters and verses. now if you want to listen to lets say the book of John, you have to Guess where it is and what chapter to jump to.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, add correct labelling to the Chapter markers so they reflect the book they are jumping to.

Probably the best read Bible audio book, let down by the implementation of the editing and compilation of the audiobooks themselves.

Did I drift too far? Wait too long? Did I out-sin the love of God? The answer is found in one of life's sweetest words: grace. With In the Grip of Grace, Max Lucado invites you to walk the mountain peaks of God's mercy. Lucado reminds you that the God who first made you is strong enough to sustain you.

Amazing message following biblical teaching about God's grace BUT quality of recording is very poor!! Would definitely give it 5 stars if quality was improved.
