Welcome to the fifteenth edition of the Question of the Week! Please consider sending me your ideas for future questions :)
Do you listen to the Bible on audio? Why? Why not? Do you have a favorite audio edition? Do you prefer dramatized editions or voice only editions? Do you have any you'd recommend?
I've tried listening to the Bible on audio--several times--but I have yet to find the perfect match for me. Either I like the narrator, but am not so fond of the translation the narrator uses. Or I like the translation, but the narrator creeps me out. Or I like the narration--mostly--but there are weird sound effects put in for dramatic purposes that snap me out of it. It's hard for narrators--I'd imagine--they have to treat the Bible with respect and not make too light out of it. But if they're too glum, or too monotone, or too robotic, or too anything really...then it can be hard to listen to. Also, I've found that some narrators sound like they're reading it for the first time. That they're surprised by where the sentence actually goes and they've ended up putting emphasis on weird words.
