The reader is described as having a 'baratone voice' and that is no lie. I can't believe how many hours of listening are contained on one CD. Have listened from Genesis to Judges in just a month of my daily commute! Have recommended it to all my friends.
What is it with the people who read audio bibles? They seem to begin by inserting a plum into their mouths, and then make it worse by 'acting' the text, as if they were some 2nd rate shakespearian actor (although I guess that is exactly what they are). Why cant someone just READ the Bible, in a normal voice? The way this guy Johnston does it is absolutely ghastly - I mean does anybody actually speak like this???
Stephen Johnstone. This is an actor narrating - And it sounds like it! This man rams expression where it was never intended to be. At times, he seems to almost sing the words. I have grown to enjoy the ESV (which I did not initially like) But this is truly dreadful! I have played it to Christian friends of mine and they are instantly irritated by the reader. I'm just glad it was cheap.
As with everything I have ordered from amazon I can only say how pleased I am with both the product and the sevice. I have listened to the beginning of the cd and it is a quality product. Thankyou amazon.
