The Word of Promise Audio Bible combines over 600 actors, an excellent musical score, and professional sound effects to make the Biblical story come alive. Speaking of actors, the cast includes many award-winning names that you will easily recognize.
The CD box set can be purchased for around $80 at Amazon and other retail outlets. That might be a hefty price tag in our current cash-strapped economy, but it is more than worth the investment for the 98 hours of incredible audio and the invaluable spiritual nourishment that you will receive. (I imported my box set (all 79 CDs!) into iTunes and carry it with me wherever I go on my iPad.) However, if the cost is out of reach, you can now listen to the full production online for free thanks to a partnership with The Christian Post.
The free, online version of The Word of Promise Audio Bible also displays the full text of the Scripture, which allows you to read along as you listen. You can even change the size of the on-screen text to suit your needs.
There is also a nifty search feature that lets you find passages of the Bible by Scripture reference (such as Gen 7:17) or by key word (such as mercy seat).
In addition, it also sports an “Embed Passage” button, which seems like a great feature. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear to be quite functional at this time. Rather than providing embed code for the audio player, it simply provides a link to the Web page. It would be great to see this feature further developed in the future.
If you are not familiar with The Word of Promise Audio Bible, I encourage you to check it out right away!
