My Review:

Packed in a 20 cd Collection that features many popular actresses and actors including Richard Dreyfuss, Kimberly Williams Paisley, Louis Gossett Jr, Stacy Keach and many more The Word of Promise New Testament Audio in NKJV format is well done with dramatic audio theatre. This cd collection makes the Bible come to life in an audio format that I have not heard before. Generally speaking, you can listen to the Bible via the You Version App, but is isn't quite as exciting as this theatrical audio, which helps you remember the stories, the verse and the word become flesh. 

I love how compact the cd set is and how nicely I can stick it into my car, which allows me to listen to the Bible while I travel from place to place. The plastic case is a bit small for 20 cds, so I think it needs something more durable, but overall it is a great set. I have been wanting an audio set for a long time. My only beef is that this is the New Testament and does not include the Old Testament. I would like to hear that the Old Testament done in this same format.  I have not listened to all 20 cds, but the cds I have listened to so far, I have really enjoyed!

Thank you to Thomas Nelson for allowing me to review this awesome audio cd set! I was not paid for this review, but was only given the product for review!
