Word of Promise Audio Bible, with an Award-winning Cast

Thomas Nelson has put out the one-of-a-kind Word of Promise Audio Bible.

Featuring a star-studded cast of over 600 actors, original music score, and incredible feature film quality sound effects. Experience the Scriptures like you’ve never experienced them before – brought to life and dramatized in a way that will fully immerse you in the experience and leave you wanting more. Feel like you’re really there with Abraham, Moses, and Jesus. Listen in your car, on your MP3 player, or with your family to gain a new perspective of the Bible.

It is available in both CD and MP3 formats. There’s even an app for that. The star-studded cast includes:

Jon Voight as Abraham

Richard Dreyfuss as Moses

Gary Sinese as David

Jim Caviezel as Jesus

Marcia Gay Harden as Esther

Malcolm McDowell as Solomon

John Rhys-Davies as Saul (Old Testament)

Marisa Tomei as Mary Magdalene

Luke Perry as Judas & Stephen

Sean Astin as Elihu

…and many, many more.

The entire Bible is on 79 CD’s that contain 98 hours of audio, from Genesis to Revelation – complete with professional sound effects such as animal sacrifices, earthquakes and a plague of frogs. It is in the New King James Version which, though a bit old, reads beautifully. Here is a 4-minute promotional video:

The New Testament module apparently came out last year, but I missed the news. The web site has audio samples and cast information.

Special Offer: Check here for a promotion that offers the complete audio Bible set plus some extras for a total of $79. This is a large discount off the normal $125 price. It includes a two-payment option, and free shipping is available if more than one audio Bible is purchased. Perhaps this will be useful for gift-giving. I don’t know how soon this may expire.

Update: Note that this audio Bible is not the Old King James version, but the New King James. A phone representative stated to me that it was the original King James, but the video above affirms otherwise. Plus, the audio samples are clearly not from the original KJV!

  1. Thanks for the review… I thought it was really insighful. picked this up the other day and really liked what I am hearing so far from the OT I did listen to John its my favorite gospel but didnt care so much for matthew. Strange I know but thanks for the review

  2. Spiro Mendez says:

    I am interested to know if the narrator for the book of Luke is the actor Christian Slater. Can you tell me please?

    • lukechandler says:

      According to the credits Christian Slater was not involved in this project. Michael York is listed as narrator and Christ MacDonald is credited as Luke.

    • Chuck says:

      According to the official website, Luke is Christ McDonald (aka “Shooter” McGavin from “Happy Gilmore”).

  3. Jon Bird says:

    Luke, Thank you for your research on this wonderful resource. I have the entire Bible on my i-phone and listen to it all the time. What I would like to see but cannot find anywhere on even their official web-site is the entire cast of characters. Since I downloaded my Bible from i-Tunes, I have no written info. Do you know where I can access the entire cast of players? Thank you.

      Hello Jon,
      I found this page that includes a few more names & roles in the left sidebar. This is the most complete list I’ve been able to find. I hope it is what you are looking for!
