James Earl Jones Voice is Key  Jan 30, 2006
This is an excellent way to listen to scripture especially while driving. Fast delivery. Thanks.
 
James Earl Jones should stick with Darth Vader.  Jan 12, 2006
I was excited to get this CD set, since I know James Earl Jones has a great set of pipes, and I have listened so much to Alexander Scourby's reading of the Bible that I was ready for a new reading. I was disappointed the first time I listened. Jones does not use inflection while he reads; the result is that the words sound lifeless. As a Christian believer, that abhors me.

But more than his lifeless reading, I am apalled at Jones' changing of the text. He is reading the King James Version, but he changes the words at will. For example, the text will read "Christ Jesus" and Jones will read "Jesus Christ." I counted 21 errors in his reading of the Book of Ephesians alone. If you believe, as I do, in the divine inspiration of the Word of God, you will not be able to stand how Jones imposes his own changes to the text without any textual or scriptural justification. Jones should stick with Darth Vader.
 
Disappointing  Dec 16, 2005
The guy has a voice like no one else, but the original King James version language (all the "unto's" and "ye's" and "thou's"). - lame backround music - and a whispery, momontone reading (if you can imagine James Earl Jones doing that) - makes this far inferior to Johnny Cash's reading of the New Testament.

Johnny Cash proclaims the Word of God beautifully and simply. If you're not much of a believer, it just is done well and straight forward.

The New King James Version in Cash's reading is more modern English (Easier on the ears.) But this is still majestic langauge. Also, no accompanying organ music. Just him reading slowly and with understanding.

If you are going to buy one - get Johnny Cash reading the New Testament.

 
Fans of James Earl Jones, or Star Wars' Darth Vader, Should Be Pleased!  Oct 6, 2005
I love this reading of the King James Version's New Testament! I only wish he had done the Old Testament as well! He is still alive, so maybe they will do that someday (hint, hint)?

James Earl Jones has a great, classy voice for this type of reverent material. He makes the sometimes difficult King James Version easier to follow, during his reading.

This James Earl Jones set has some quiet music playing in the background, so that is my biggest criticism. The music is more like MUZAK, which has nothing to do with the Bible scenes being read. Distracting, but it also fades away from notice eventually.

If you know any Star Wars fans, then this is a perfect way to get them introduced to Bible material, since James Earl Jones is the voice of Darth Vader in the Star Wars films.

I love these celebrity readings of the Bible. Another great celebrity Bible reading is Johnny Cash's attempt, so check that out, too! These type of celebrity readings are great for fans of the celebrity, but if you are wanting a great Bible reading on CD, then I would suggest a dramatized version of the New International Version (NIV) from the Zondervan company.

I also really enjoy THE MESSAGE!, a contemporary paraphrase, not a translation of the Bible, which is very engrossing, but sometimes strays too far from the actual scripture verses. All of these Bible CDs are imperfect, but it's fun to hear and get exposed to the differences, as long as they make a serious attempt to be faithful and accurate to the Scriptures.

If you are considering buying this James Earl Jones set, then you probably have enough interest to enjoy owning and listening to this. I love this CD set! Even though it's not perfect, it is still very enjoyable and inspirational. I highly recommend it!
 
Beautifully soothing...  Nov 19, 2004
Monotone? I loved listening to Mr. Jones' voice, and I would tend to listen all the way through and even understand it better than when I read it myself....and as for mispronouncing words, I have no doubt that there was training and practicing of unfamiliar words ahead of time, so any "mispronunciations" were just a matter of choice by the speaker, his OWN variation of some words which is very often allowable in our English language. I have always found his brand of accent/dialect very appealing, so yes, I was very happy to start listening to these CDs performed by an actor I've always admired. To each his own though, I guess......
