by | Read by Clifford Norgate

Children Ages 8+ • 2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Clifford Norgate's powerhouse of a voice leads listeners through these 20 familiar Bible stories. True to the title, the stories provide brief highlights of Old and New Testament scripture, ranging from "The Beginning of the World" to "The Story of the Cross." Most of the violent biblical scenes have been avoided. Norgate's practiced baritone offers a paternal presence. The counterpoint of a female narrator would be a pleasing addition to Norgate's robust voice. Some of the stories, "The Baby in the Basket," in particular, cry out for a feminine delivery. British pronunciations ("et" for "ate") may intrigue some American children. E.B.A. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
