Davis's overview of the Bible from historical, etymological and chronological perspectives offers explanations for confusing passages. Davis reads the introduction and the epilogue, his quick, clipped speech full of enthusiasm and interest. The remaining segments are read by Eric Conger and an unidentified female, who capably present the information in strong, clear tones with a natural flow that gives a conversational sound to the shorter passages. This format allows the readers to alternate and provides the subtle changes needed for continuous listening to long narratives. Conger reads the lengthy passages, adjusting his voice for dramatic statements, as well as for humorous lines, all with just the right style.
