The past couple of weeks I’ve been listening to Tyndale’s new audio New Testament called “Breathe Bible“. Here is a little more information about it from the publisher:
The Breathe Bible Audio New Testament is a remarkably vivid listening experience that transports you into the world of the Bible. Performed in the New Living Translation by a cast of internationally acclaimed film, television and recording artists, this captivating multi-million dollar audio production features cinema-quality sound with an original music score. It’s an experience you will never forget. The Breathe Bible Audio New Testament—“It’s like being there.” Not only are 18 CDs are included in this premium audio product, it also includes a code to receive the user friendly mobile App for free! Listen however you like!
Created by an award-winning team, this dramatic production features a cast of leading Hollywood entertainers, over 80 supporting actors, a full-orchestral score, and cutting-edge sound design. Stars of stage and film such as Kevin Sorbo (Voice of God), Josh Lucas (Jesus), John Rhys-Davies (narrator), Jesse McCartney (Matthew), Hill Harper (Mark), Corbin Bleu (John), Christian Stolte (Luke), Marshall Allman (John the Baptist), Wintley Phipps (Peter), and Bailee Madison (Young Mary Mother of Jesus) headline this $2 million production, bringing a new level of excitement to the forefront of Bible audio innovation. Features the New Living Translation, the first translation created to be read aloud.
This is a pretty cool audio Bible as it is dramatized. It makes listening quite enjoyable. Each person is a different actor. Some of the actors I had to look up because I had never heard of them before. But there are quite a few well known voices that you will recognize like Kevin Sorbo (Hercules, God’s Not Dead), Corbin Bleu (High School Musical), and many others.
I love that John Rhys-Davies (Lord of the Rings, Raiders of the Lost Ark) is the narrator. I’ve always loved his voice. It is so enjoyable to listen to. Maybe its because he’s English so the accent is awesome, haha. I can’t help it I’ve always loved that accent. Anyway, it’s really nice to hear the scripture dramatized because I think it makes us put it into perspective as far as many of these things happened in crowds and with background noise so you hear noises like you would if you had been there. Music always sets a mood and they did a great job with the orchestral part of the audio.
I think my favorite part is that when you purchase the CD’s you get a code for a free app where you can download the Breathe Bible to your phone or device. Then you can take your Breathe Bible anywhere you go.
I’ve really been enjoying listening to it and I LOVE the fact that if you listen to it through the app the scripture automatically scrolls with the audio so you are looking at what you are listening to if you want to follow along.
I very highly recommend that you check this out. It’s definitely worth a look. It’s available at your local Christian stores or online. Click the image or titles above to find out other places you can purchase this audio Bible.
