The Good: I love the Bible, and a well-made audio or celluloid presentation can make the words leap off the page! This was very well-produced; the music, sound effects, voices, etc., were all amazingly done. For people who want to study the Bible, but would fall asleep trying to read it themselves, this would be a valuable tool!
The Bad: The only problem I have is this: While I understand the need for non-gender-specific pronouns in some verses, it makes the wording awkward at times. That, though, is a minor complaint.
Conclusion: Doing the Bible is audio format is an arduous task, especially when it involves such big-name talent. Still, the makers of this audiobook prove that they're more than up to the task. If you like the Bible on audio, but haven't given this one a try, you definitely should.
