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.

I cannot believe this great narration has been so ruined by a completely ridiculous lack of orderliness. NO BOOK titles? How on earth are we supposed to navigate these 66 books. Please do something about this as soon as possible. NIL PWANG

The sixteen Old Testament prophets preached God's Word, including both promises and judgment warnings to Israel and Judah, between about 760 BC and 460 BC - a period of great change for God's people. The prophets spoke into the situation - explaining persuasively why the people were living such hard lives in foreign exile, but they also prophesied how God would eventually undo it and redeem his wayward people by grace via a new covenant.Acclaimed British actor David Suchet brings his deep, melodic and un-rushed voice to this beautiful and profound section of the Bible.

The arrangement of this whole David Suchet bible narration is let down by its shambolic book and chapter arrangement in that there aren't any. It is inconceivable in any other electronically printed realm that the Bible would not have an easy find book and chapter. Here, there is no such joy. One is left to click through some 500 chapters starting from Genesis1 through to goodness knows where except we know it should be Revelation 22. Such a pity. H & S should get this sorted immediately and arrange a free upgrade for existing customers.

The book of Acts and the letters of St Paul from the Holy Bible, read by David Suchet.

David Suchet reads the biblical letters (from Acts to Revelation) to accompany his BBC1 series, In the Footsteps of St Paul. In the two-part documentary, the Poirot actor travels to ancient and modern locations around the Mediterranean, interviewing experts and uncovering the latest archaeological research surrounding St Paul's career. Scripture is taken from the Holy Bible, New International Version, 2011 translation.

Wonderful to listen to but let down from 5 stars in every category for me by the ridiculous fact there are no book headings, so you cannot find 1Peter or Ruth or Job or Collosians just like that. Instead, you are presented with a huge list of numbered chapters only. It seems ridiculous that such a masterful rendition is let down by such a simple organisational clanger. Come on publishers, get this solved and I'll gladly revisit the ratings to give it 5 stars for ecerything!
