Listening to The Word of Promise Audio New Testament felt like I was hearing familiar passages again for the first time. It made the Word alive to me in a way it never has been before. The sound effects that were a part of this dramatic audio theater presentation added to the experience rather than being a distraction. Following along in my Bible for a short time, I didn’t find anything changed or left out except for “Jesus said”. But the actor, Jim Caviezel’s, now familiar voice made it clear who was speaking. The lineup of gifted artists who also participated in this project included; Marisa Tomei, Michael York, Richard Dreyfuss, Stacy Keach, Louis Gossett Jr., and many others. The production quality of this work leaves nothing to be desired. The 20 disc set comes in a sturdy CD book that is easy to take along or store on the shelf amongst your books.
There are three generations of very real fans of this audio presentation of the New Testament in my family. It is absolutely engaging. My 11-year-old son likes it because, “It’s like having someone read it to you. It’s great for people who don’t like to read. It’s cool.” My mother-in-law said that it reminded her of what radio was like when she was a kid. It’s wonderful to be able to fill the house or the car with God’s word. I can’t recommend The Word of Promise Audio New Testament strongly enough.
