I hadn't noticed this low a price before, but Amazon.com is selling this great audio Bible for $20.99 for the MP3-CD version of the New Testament.
The version used is Today's New International Version. The complete cast list reads as a who's who African-Americans in the entertainment industry but also from other fields with
- Angela Bassett
- Samuel L. Jackson
- Cuba Gooding, Jr
- Forest Whitaker
- and many others
Beth and I have been really enjoying our copies of this. The one thing we don't like is that in some of the epistles one person will be reading, then two people will be reading at the same time, then they will phase to the second person only. I can think of no dramatic or other reason they would do this other than to give more people an opportunity to participate in the project. But I really find it distracting.
That quibble aside, this is a fine and engaging audio Bible which is very professionally done.
Amazon.com lists a release date of 30 October 2007 for the Old Testament.
