Product Description

From AudioFile

THE BIBLE EXPERIENCE is just that--an experience--that bypasses many of the previous Bible recordings with a full show of music, sound effects, and a dazzling array of celebrity voices. The producers from Inspired By Media Group put together a cast of more than 80 African-American actors who deliver a rich, diverse rendering of the contemporary Today's New International Version (TNIV) translation in gospel-meeting style. Listeners are treated to a sort of aural kaleidoscope with layers of voices, sound, and music overlapping and occasionally colliding. The lavish production pulls out all the stops, so this is not a Bible recording for purists. If a modern multimedia production "experience" is what you're after, enjoy the fine voices and often dynamic dramatized readings. The "making of" DVD disc is an entertaining extra. R.F.W.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brings the New Testament to Life in Your Heart Feb. 5 2008
By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This recording provides an awe-inspiring experience for Christians. It's like walking with Jesus and listening to his teachings. Later, you'll find yourself in prison with a chained Paul as he sends his letters of love and admonition to the various churches.

There's only so much spiritual growth you can gain by merely reading the Bible. You also need to feel it deep inside your heart. To access your heart in this way, I strongly recommend listening to this recording which re-enacts the New Testament in the Today's New International Version. With music, sound effects, and excellent pacing, reading these sections of the Bible will never be the same for you.

These aren't just any performers: They are an all-star cast of some of your favorite performers. The excellence of their performances helps the words ascend towards heaven.

I intend to listen to these performances again and again. I'm sure you will, too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Experience! April 13 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been inspired by The Bible Experience. I felt I needed to have something other than music playing in my car and so read the reviews posted here regarding this version and took a chance...I was not disappointed. It is a great way to hear the Word and with the dramatization and different voices, you almost feel like you are there. I highly recommend the Bible Experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Ambitious Bible Project to Date Oct. 17 2006
By M. Fields - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Finally. Not just a reading or recitation of the Holy Scriptures but a re-enactment of them. The words leap and dance off of the page due to the passion infused into every word. What a wonderful project. This is indeed a sight and sound generation. Try getting kids to sit down and read a book these days. Impossible! But now we have The Bible Experience. It's packed with more stars than a blockbuster movie. Although the cast is entirely African American, it makes no difference because when God speaks, he speaks to every person.

The set includes 19 CD's which hold the complete New Testament. There is also a CD which includes bonus features. That's where you will find the Making of Video, pictures and cast list and what characters they play. The really nice thing about this set is that the discs are already tucked into a nice cd case, ready to take with you as soon as you open the box.

The talent used here is a smart move. It creates an audience that may not have been attracted to a project like this. What a cast: Denzel Washington, Angela Bassett, Cuba Gooding Jr., Samuel L. Jackson, Bishop T.D. Jakes, Blair Underwood, Yolanda Adams, Shirely Ceasar, Faith Evans, Kirk Franklin, Hill Harper, Levar Burton, Tisha Campbell, Loretta Devine, Kim Fields, Eriq Lasalle, MC Lyte, Glynn Turman, Garrett Morris, James Avery, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Donnie McClurkin, etc., etc., etc. There are too many to name here.

The cast re-enacts from the new testament of Today's New International Version of the bible. Not only is there acting but wonderfully scored music and sound effects to make the listener feel as though he is at the scene. You may have noticed that some of the cast aforementioned may not be known as being Christian but many of the people in the bible were not people of faith. It is hoped that in taking part in this awe inspiring project, at least some of the unsaved might become saved.

I emplore you to buy this Audio Book for yourself and give it as a gift to others. Especially the young people. It will be a blessing. The Old Testament is being workd on and will be released in 2007. There will also be a CD of all the music released in 2007. Many of the original cast will return to work on the Old Testament. The voice of God is still to be cast as I understand it. I vote for James Earl Jones! Is there anyone better to play God? I think not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Done with Excellence! Nov. 20 2006
By butchdaulton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Fantastic! When I first heard of this product, I expected something very much like my NIV on CD - clearly presented, but still having that "reading-a-book" feel. However, the Bible Experience accomplishes exactly what its name implies. In the Gospels and Acts, you feel the action taking place. In the Epistles, you get the experience of the letters actually being written.

I read an earlier review that criticized the production quality of this project. As a former professional editor in radio and video and as a current pastor, I can assure you that I was thoroughly satisfied with both production and content. The fact that there is little pause between narrator and actor keeps the momentum moving and eliminates the "wooden" feel of more traditional readings. However, even with this more realistic pace, nowhere do you feel that the text is being treated with anything but respect.

I also thought that the background sounds were very well done. Two of my favorites were the marching soldiers panning slowly from right to left in Romans and the dank, dripping feel of the prison in 1 Corinthians. Never overwhelming - just enough to create the "experience".

Finally, I thought the scoring was very appropriate. That was one of my criticisms with the NIV recording, where it seemed that the background music was on a continuous loop and would rise and fall at random times. In The Bible Experience, the music fit the scenes - and there are many times when there is no music, just the ambient sound that would surround a 1st century letter being written.

I have been recommending this project in my church, and will highly recommend it on this website. It treats the NT with reverence, while realistically animating it from an oft-times lifeless page. I can't wait until next year's OT release - the history books are going to be a blast!

5.0 out of 5 stars Such an Inspiration Nov. 17 2006
By Reader's Paradise - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have waited for this release since last year when I first got the email from Gospel.com. As soon as it came out in October I brought it. I love this CD, I have purchase 4 copies already for family and friends. This is on the top of my gift giving list.

I have read many versions of the bible since 2003, and to be honest this is the best. I can see the story as it is being told to me. The drama that is accompanied by the reading is fantastic.

I love the way the executive producers surround the angel "Gabriel" with such a voice and the speed of it "wow" very exciting, you can truly feel his sense of urgency when talking to Zechariah about the birth "John" YES Lord!!

This is such an anointing project and I am sure many who NEVER would pick up a bible or attend church services WILL be blessed by this audio version of the bible.

As God inspired in the four gospels he meets everyone right where they are and then waits for us to get there. The Bible Experience is living testimony of just that...

3.0 out of 5 stars Wish there was a non-enhanced version March 8 2007
By Kenneth Chan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've owned a copy of the Zondervan NIV Audio Bible for a while, so I was excited to check out this new TNIV series. The star-studded cast was very appealing, and I think overall I was really happy with the voice-acting in this new release. However, I think the background sound effects kind of ruined the "experience" for me. I just didn't agree with the decisions to have sounds of "writing" and "prisoners coughing" during the reading of Paul's letters, or random horses clomping and ambient crowd noises when it wasn't directly relevant to the content of the reading. Paul's thoughts were probably *away* from his immediate prison environment when he was writing, so why does the listener have to hear the chains dragging on the ground or the dripping water from the leaky ceiling? The background music was acceptable, but I think the producers tried a little too hard to add sound effects here. Just my opinion.

If Zondervan released a version of this production without the extraneous sound effects, I think I would be interested in buying it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars and Praises for "The Bible Experience" Oct. 13 2006
By S. Minor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The words of Jesus come to life with Blair Underwood in The Bible Experience. Hear the Beautitudes spoken to you from the mouth of Jesus. I am in awe of the power of the Bible experience. The words, music, background take you to the place where the words are spoken. I have been blessed with comprehension and study of the KJV of the bible, I am having a more enlightened experience with the audio.

This is a must have for any family, African American or otherwise.

I am presenting this to my family members for Christmas presents. What better way to honor the birth of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

I listened to the book of Matthew on my daily commute, and received powerful revelations from God's word.

I recommend that you read the New Testment Chapters before you listen to the tape to realize the blessing of the Bible Experience.

Wonderful casting of the Books of the New Testament.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
