Summary

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. Starting with the writings of the Apostle Paul to accompany his BBC1 documentary, 'In the Footsteps of St Paul', Suchet now turns his attention to the poetical books of the Old Testament, Job to Song of Songs. This portion of the Bible includes the famous Psalms of David - some of the most deeply emotional and beautiful passages in biblical literature.

Scripture is taken from the Holy Bible, New International Version, 2011 translation.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying index to books and chapters will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Missing chapters

I started listening to the recording of Psalms from Ps 130 onwards and noticed that Ps 134, 136, 142 were omitted. Ps 139 was in a wrong place. Then I started listening from the beginning and Ps 1 was omitted. I simply gave up... Performance excellent but what good is that when edited so poorly.

Beautiful

To hear some of the most profound thoughts ever written wrapped in beautiful prose and poetry narrated by someone with such a beautiful, mellifluous and rich voice is a sheer joy and only enhances the power of the written word. Glorious.
