BEEtween the Pages: The Word of Promise New Testament Audio Bible

Thomas Nelson's The Word of Promise New Testament Audio Bible contains a 21-hour dramatization of the New King James Version. Packaged in a 20-CD set, this audio bible features a well-known cast of actors, including Jim Caviezel as Jesus, Stacy Keach as Paul, Louis Gossett, Jr. as John, Micheal York as the Narrator, Kimberly Williams-Paisley as Mary (mother of Jesus), and Marisa Tomei as Mary Magdalene.

With a satisfying blend of readings by the actors, an original music score, and sound effects, this version of the New Testament not only entertained me but also expanded my literacy of the Bible. I was particularly moved by Jim Caviezel's performance of Jesus dying on the cross in the book of Matthew.

The only downside of this audio bible for me was the amount of time it took to complete it. I found the best place to listen to the CDs was in my car. Because I no longer commute to work, it took me about four months to complete the set. Yet, I would recommend this audio bible because it offers listeners an alternative way to expand their knowledge of the Bible and delivers a high-quality production.

Note: I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of reviewing it.
