Audio Bible Review

I wanted to love this Audio Bible. Mostly, I wanted my kids to love it. I wanted them to read the cover and see all the cool stars and be enthralled. I wasn't, they weren't. It is actually so many different people reading that it gets very confusing. Also, hearing children read parts that are not children is mildly confusing at best. Add to that the fact that some of the young boys sound girlish and yet they are reading male parts-it would be great live, but in a recording that isn't exactly what one can benefit from.

Perhaps I am biased because we already have a really cool audio bible-and it has BOTH Testaments!! Audio Bibles are a great resource. It is a wonderful way to build scripture time into your life and the lives of your children. If you need this kind of star power to get your kids interested-buy it. If the story quality is more important than star power, spend your money on a good audio Bible that has both Testaments and fewer characters reading!!

This would make a great gift for a new tween Christian that loves the tween stars. It serves a function and I'm glad it is available. It just wasn't a good fit for us.

Do you own it? or just borrowing it? Maybe I could take a little listen?
