Word of Promise. New Testament

Word of Promise – New Testament

Previously I have reviewed Word of Promise: Next Generation. That audio set featured voices of many teen stars and was aimed at the teenage audience. This audio set is the New Testament (as was the other one) but features “mature” voices such as Jim Caviezel (Passion of the Christ) as the voice of Jesus. It is presented in the New King James Version. In addition to vocal acting for the many people, it also features a musical score and sound effects which add to the ambience of listening. It is a 20 CD set and comes with an bonus DVD featuring “behind the scenes.”


On the whole I enjoyed this audio Bible. The quality was very high and easy on the ears. Hearing adult voices for the various roles put it a step above Next Generation for me as well. Though I would prefer to sit down and read a Bible, I can see where this would be of great help. If you travel a lot, you can play it through a CD player or rip it to your computer and play it on your mp3 player. If your vision is going, it may be relaxing to hear a collection of voices read scripture.

Of course, this like any audio book can easily be blocked out if you are distracted easily. I sometimes found the sound slowly turning into a soft whisper as my attention shifted elsewhere. On the whole, though, a great product.
