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 2 of the NIV Audio Bible includes the Prophets, Gospels, Acts and Letters, covering the books of Isaiah to Revelation.

Where does Complete NIV Audio Bible rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Good performance from David Suchet, easy listening.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Complete NIV Audio Bible?

Although I have needed to put in the bookmarks for the books manually, now that that is done, it is easy to navigate to chapter 1 of each book, although you could easily bookmark every 5th book.

Which character – as performed by David Suchet – was your favourite?

Impossible to say, given that it is the Bible. I used to listen to the bible through my bible app but it required a data connection, so having this downloaded makes for easy listening.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. I have been doing HTBs BIOY app, but sometimes I get behind and need to catchup, listening as I drive, run or walk the dog. Also listening and then reading through helps me to focus and reflect on what I am reading.

Any additional comments?

Great audio bible, no regrets.

A definitive, deeply moving narrative, Bonhoeffer is a story of moral courage in the face of the monstrous evil that was Nazism. After discovering the fire of true faith in a Harlem church, Bonhoeffer returned to Germany and became one of the first to speak out against Hitler. As a double agent, he joined the plot to assassinate the Führer and was hanged in Flossenbürg concentration camp at age thirty-nine. Since his death, Bonhoeffer has grown to be one of the most fascinating, complex figures of the twentieth century.

Excellent, thoroughly enjoyed. Long but necessarily so, to do justice to Bonhoeffer and his remarkable and challenging story.
Narration very pleasant and easy to listen to.
