the bible experience

Ever since hearing about this project last year, I never really paid attention to it. I’ve never really been into audio books, let alone audio bibles — I think mostly, because I love looking at texts as a whole. When I’m listening to something, it’s hard for me to fully grasp where something has been, and what’s to come. Maybe it’s just my intervarsity training, but the inductive-esque style of bible study are my chopsticks when it comes to digging through soul food — there’s something about laying out a passage, double spaced, in 3-4 pages in front of me and seeing connections, references, making notes, etc.

After watching the whole video clip,… wow. I know there’s been a lot of dispute about how it’s just a celebrity-filled reading of the Bible, but honestly, I truly believe this brings the Word of God alive in another dimension. It doesn’t have to be exegesis to be an experience of the Bible,… and for someone like me who’s used to wanting to know what’s before and what’s after, it’s a “w, you need to slow down and listen to what My Word is saying to you NOW” kind of experience.

I get this mental image of some key passages getting played at prayer meeting, large group, meetings,… and responding to the Word made life in such a tangible way.

So yes, in a nutshell, I am waiting for the 11/5

    I think it’s out in stores today, October 22. My friend works at a Christian bookstore and that’s what she told me at least.

    I have the New Testament already. It does bring the scriptures to life!

    I’ve never been a fan of audiobibles. I even tried books on tape and I just can’t do it. So I totally know where you’re coming from. I am still working my way through the New Testament though. Are you enjoying the Old Testament? There’s a clip now of the Song of Songs that Denzel and Pauletta read together available online., I found it while surfing the web.

    Thanks for your support of the Bible Experience. I am an employee at Zondervan and I was wondering if you were interested in posting a widget that we have on our website. Just go to and there is a grey widget on the right-hand side that shows a cover of the product. Just click on “add” and the HTML should display. Thanks! Hope you enjoy listening to the Bible Experience and thanks again for your support!

    And that would be the same direction they could go with, should it be redone.

    Cash has a great story and one that definitely needed to
    be told. Whether flying a little airplane between falling
    sky scrappers or driving over a collapsing freeway off-ramp, you are moving left to
    right and ducking along with the terrified cast.
