Not well organized (Review of Audio Book)

Well, this exists, so that's good. But it is impossible to use the audio book to find a specific passage. It won't let you skip ahead to a specific part of the Bible. Rather, you have to listen to Genesis, then Exodus.... doubt I'll ever get to the New Testament at this rate....

The Bible Reading is Good/ Preface is Bad

The reading of the Bible is pretty good-- it is clear and the man's deep voice is pleasant enough. The David Suchet production is much more beautiful-- I have that NIV translation also.

This is the only Catholic Bible that I saw. The Catholic Bible has 7 more books in it than the Protestant versions of the Bible. The Catholic Bible with it's 73 books is the original Bible; since the Canon (that is the selection of books that were deemed inspired by the Holy Spirit) were established by the authority of the Church in the early days of Christianity around the 5th century before the Schism of the East and West Churches and 1000 years before the split caused by the rise of Protestantism in the 16th century. The 73 books were deemed inspired by the Holy Spirit at a time when Christendom was one and united.

In the 16th Century, with the turmoil of the Reformation and the split of Protestants into many different factions led by different leaders, the Protestant version of the Bible was formed of 66 books after 7 books were dropped out of the original Bible that had been revered by all Christians for over a thousand years.

The Bible reading part of this recording seems good but the introductory material has some erroneous information that is not consistent with Catholic or Christian belief and seem to be expressing skepticism about the literal truths of the Bible. I skipped that part, but that caused me to give this a poor rating because of that erroneous material that is not accurate. I recommend skipping all that part in the beginning.

Loved it

This is the only full 73 book Bible on Audible so I was anxious to get it and listen to it. And it's really good. It would have been better without the Book introductions, some of which were longer than the Book of the Bible itself and the audio was uneven with often drastic volume changes when a correction was patched in.

Some have complained about no table of contents but that's easily accomplished. All in all, I loved listening to this Bible and will listen to it again, probably annually as I currently read the printed version.

How about named chapters or at least an index!!?

Seriously!?! Index or chapter names or something to indicate where we are in any particular recording is REQUIRED, NOT OPTIONAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The reader is adequate, at least as good as an average lector at Mass.

However not being able to Navigate to particular passages or at least being able to know what book a particular recording is part of is ridiculous!!!! Is labeling that difficult? I think not. Get with it Audible! Insist on finished productions before you release them out to the public.

The Bible is a reference tool even when listening to it. One must be able to navigate the 80+ hours of it to a point they wish to start!

Can't give zero stars

No offense to narrator but, the reading is without any feeling whatsoever. Sticking with NIV by Zondervan.
