THE NEW TESTAMENT Selections from the Bible

by | Read by Hugh Dickinson, Edward de Souza, Dermot Kerrigan, Heathcote Williams

Philosophy & Religion • 7.65 hrs. • Abridged • ©

The Authorized Version, an eighteenth-century edition based on the King James Bible, can be difficult for modern readers. The British narrators in this recording, however, breathe life into the ancient text. The Very Rev. Hugh Dickinson delivers all of Matthew and John, plus selections from Luke, in his Oxbridge accent, while Williams's presentation of Revelation is superbly chilling. De Souza is excellent in his handling of a well-chosen selection from Paul's epistles, and Kerrigan's expressive reading of the Acts of the Apostles demonstrates his comfort with the rhythm of the language. This fine package also benefits from smart editing--there's virtually no repetition in the selections from the gospels--and from informative liner notes that provide useful context.
