Difficult to Find Specific Bible Books or Chapters

The voice recording is good and clear and keeps your interest. My only and biggest gripe is that I cannot listen to a specific Book like Acts for instance. Forget even trying to be specific like Acts 3 Ch.7 as the sections of audio are listed as Part 1 to Part 26 to be downloaded. At the start of chapters I hear for instance: Chapter 7 (of which book? I don't know if I haven't listened for a while) I think it only says which book at the start of each Book. You cannot find the start of a book easily either. So defeats the object. Unless I'm doing something wrong - but I don't think so...
UPDATE: I have since seen that there is a PDF that you can download that lists the content of each 'PART' but this is still a painstaking way to find anything. Part 6 for instance lists as Joshua 1, Joshua 2, etc to Ruth 4, there are no mins/seconds listed so you would still have to fast forward and shuffle through, and even then each chapter audibly says Chapter 4, etc, not Ruth Chapter 4. So you don't know where you are.

Just the word

I listened to a number of samples before settling on this audio bible. With the amount of options available it was hard to pick the right one. I picked this one because it had no background music which I found distracting. Also, it's not a dramatization, while it has a number of different narrators each one reads a different gospel. Which is a really nice touch; I didn't want the bible to sound like a radio play.
It's fairly easy to find the the chapters you are looking for if you download the PDF. If you are useing the audible app on your phone carry the PFD with you to. I've read other reviews that complain about this. There's no problem if you are prepared for it.

As to the story, I'm gonna have to say its the best one I've ever heard!

Needs to have books of the bibles labeled vs section 21 chapter 4 for example

I wish the books of the bible were titled by the names and not only the numbers. I have to try to figure out where the books begin. So instead of being able to go to ACTS, you go to something like section 8 chapter 6. And you have to click on a lot before getting to it. doing bookmarks has been hard. The voice sounds good though.

Faith comes by hearing

Would you listen to KJV Audio Bible, Pure Voice again? Why?

Yes, I wanted to improve upon my memory of the scriptures in addition to my bible reading and this audio bible has helped with my studying.

What was one of the most memorable moments of KJV Audio Bible, Pure Voice?

Its different when you're listening versus reading. While listening my imagination begins to create what I'm reading and makes the scriptures all the more memorable. I still attend services 3 times a week but this audio has enhanced my desire to KNOW and LIVE God's word.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narrator brings my imagination to life.

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

Considering the bible is so long and incredibly detailed it's impossible to read in one sitting, its the best book known the man.

Any additional comments?

I encourage people who aren't readers of the Word because of difficulty reading to buy an audio bible. Once you have heard, you'll naturally want to read it for yourself. Faith coming by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Thanks Audio Book.

There is a Problem

The narration is great, but here is the problem: the audio books are not titled. Therefore it is a problem finding a certain Book. I bought another KJV audio book and it had the same problem. Maybe they fixed this in later releases, for I have had it for a couple of years. So why did I wait so long to write a review? I got frustrated looking for a certain Book today. I'm spite of all that I said above ... I still enjoy and recommend it.

Yours in Christ,

Alex

Disappointed

Would you listen to KJV Audio Bible, Pure Voice again? Why?

No, I wouldn't listen to it again. Some of the narrators were excellent, but there were too many awful ones! Some sounded angry or sarcastic...very disappointed!

Any additional comments?

I would like to return this audiobook.

Worth the time and money

This presentation of the Holy Bible is worth your time to listen and the price you pay to have it read to you. Actually it is a time saver. I can do other activities while listening. Because there were three sections missing, one reader whose voice was scary to me and one reader difficult to understand at times, I cannot give the full five star rating. Overall I would recommend this selection highly but for those issues. I enjoyed. I will inform Amazon of the missing sections. They are good at resolving problems with purchases. Praise God for making available the King James Version of the Holy Bible. Thank you.

Compelling!

We as a group do our best to read the Bible through each year. Due to the fact that some of the books of the bible are harder to read, and/or a bit beyond my comprehension, I found that reading along helped me maintain a consistency. I tend to struggle through the major prophets. Due to the compelling and intense style of the professional readers I found myself feeling a bit on-the-edge-of-my-seat while enjoying the prophets this time. I would reccomend this audio book to all. It's also nice to be able to adjust the reading speed as well. And because it's Audible your place in the book is always saved so you can pick back up where you left off each time.

Yay Bible

Bible good; I will listen to this many times. However, the readers were slow I had to put the speed at x1.5 and even x2.0. I am not a fan of dramatization of the Bible. It could’ve just been me but some places the reader sounded angry when I don’t think they should have. But this isn’t overly dramatized and I can deal with it.
