Truth and Life Dramatized Audio Bible New Testament
November 2010

I’m a fan of any Bible or audio Bible that helps people read and understand the Word. The recording is done with “70 actors including international stars: Neal McDonough as “Jesus,” Julia Ormond as “Mary, Mother of God,” Blair Underwood as “Mark,” Stacy Keach as “John,” Michael York as “Luke,” Brian Cox as “The Voice of God,” Sean Astin as “Matthew,” Kristen Bell as “Mary Magdalene, ” Malcolm McDowell as “Caiaphas,” and John Rhys-Davies as the Narrator.”

The production value is outstanding. The score is well done and the actors do a great job. My only problem – and this is because perhaps I’m not a Catholic and I don’t enjoy hearding thee and thou – is the transaltion. But I recognize that this product is specifically for Christians who enjoy more archaic translations so it does a very good job of meeting those needs. For me, I had a hard time listening to the language as I had to almost interpret some of what I was hearing instead of simply hearing it.

Overall, this is a top notch audio Bible and it should be on your radar.
