Philosophy & Religion • 21 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

Boasting a cast of notable actors, THE WORD OF PROMISE provides a captivating rendering of the New Testament. This production brings to life the Gospels, combining enlivening sound effects, intense dialogue, and illuminating music. Jim Caviezel delivers a compelling performance of Jesus, with a steady tone that can as effectively recount parables as reenact the crucifixion. Following the theatrical portrayal of the life of Jesus, the remaining books shift in narrative character. More philosophical in nature, each book is read as a continuous monologue by one narrator, with fewer interludes of dialogue. Among the variety of actors, Stacy Keach boldly portrays the message of Paul, and Michael York eloquently recounts Acts and Hebrews. Overall, the production is engaging for the listener and well executed. T.D.M. 2008 Audies Winner © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 08]
