NIV Audio Bible on MP3 CD

Full Product Description

David Suchet’s new audio reading of the Bible gives you the entire NIV Bible from Genesis to the Revelation in the much loved, award winning actor’s deep, melodic and restfully unrushed voice.

This 78 hour, 752,702 word recording presented on just 6 MP3 CDs is the distillation of more than 200 hours studio times and David Suchet’s own spiritual journey that began with his reading of a Bible in a hotel room in 1968.

Most famous now for his role as Agatha Christie’s Belgian super detective, Hercule Poirot, the Sandford St Martin's Trust award winner’s actor portrayal is loved in more than 100 countries by an estimated 600-700 million viewers.

NIV publishers in the UK, Hodder Stoughton, say it is the first time a single British actor of this stature has taken on presenting the Bible’s entire text as an audio recording. Speaking for the Biblica consortium who backed the NIV audio Bible project, Hodder Faith director Ian Metcalfee said: "I am delighted the whole thing came together. It is amazing, just having David Suchet is transformatory... It is a labour of love, and so much of a benefit to everyone".

The gifted actor has made a gift of his recording to Bible readers everywhere by donating his 200 hour recording fee to charity. The whole project is David’s idea following a letter from a blind woman whose life had been transformed by his earlier recording of St John’s gospel. And for people who love him for other things, for Poirot, this recording is a wonderful gift opportunity for Bible readers to introduce others to the scriptures too.

This 78 hour recording comes on six MP3 CDs. They can be used on any device that displays the MP3 symbol. You can transfer the audio files for your personal use onto your computer, smartphone, MP3 player and other compatible devices. Please check your audio equipment before ordering this product.

NIV Audio Bible on MP3 CD by David Suchet was published by Hodder & Stoughton in April 2014 and is our 52nd best seller. The ISBN for NIV Audio Bible on MP3 CD is 9781444786408.

Product Q&A

Got a question? No problem! Just click here to ask us about NIV Audio Bible on MP3 CD.

Q:

Can this Bible be played without it stopping at the end of each chapter or do you have to always manually start the next chapter?

A:Hi Alison, The NIV Audio Bible on MP3 CD will play continuously, on repeat or shuffle depending on the function you select when playing it through your computer music software or MP3 device. Hope this helps, James
Q:

A suggestion in response to a question about playing the mp3 recording.

Q: I dont have an mp 3 player and wonder if there is a facility to buy and download from your website otherwise this is very limited.....

A: Hi, Gill. Thanks for your question about the NIV Audio Bible on MP3 CD. At present we are not offering this product as a download, only as the 6CD set with free delivery in the UK. Yours, Les.
Most modern DVD players and televisions with integrated DVD players will play mp3 CDs without any problem, as well as standard audio CDs. There is the additional advantage when using a television or portable DVD player with its own screen that the track details are somewhat larger than on most CD player displays.
A:How to play the NIV Audio Bible on MP3 CDs if you don't have an MP3 player. Peter says: Most modern DVD players and televisions with integrated DVD players will play mp3 CDs without any problem, as well as standard audio CDs. There is the additional advantage when using a television or portable DVD player with its own screen that the track details are somewhat larger than on most CD player displays. Thanks to Peter for this helpful reply. Les
Q:

I am disappointed to only find this as an MP3 CD. Is it produced as as a normal CD as well?

A:Hi, Margaret. Thanks for your interest in the NIV Audio Bible read by David Suchet. This is an MP3 recording as it's the only way to get the content down to a manageable and affordable 6 CDs. To record it in standard audio CD format would mean a CD collection of about 10 times as many discs. However, you can convert the mp3 tracks into audio tracks using the standard software on your computer (such as Windows Media Player or Real player) and then 'burn' them onto a blank recordable CD to play on any CD player in your home or car. Yours, Les
Q:

Hi, can I choose to select and listen to a particular book from the Bible easily? 

A:Hi, David. Thanks for your interest in The NIV Audio Bible on MP3 CD. The tracks are arranged by chapter and in sequence; they're not grouped into 'folders' for each book of the Bible. So while it flows through very smoothly, chapter on chapter, there is a very large number of tracks to sort through if you're trying to find a particular book and chapter. However, each CD is printed with the book and chapters it contains, so it should be quite easy to sort through and make your own 'book order' folders for loading to your listening device. Yours, Les
Q:

Can I load this bilbe on to an ipod?

If not is there one that I can?

A:Hi, Nicholas, Thanks for your interest in the NIV Audio Bible. The tracks on the 6 CDs are recorded in MP3 files which will transfer to an ipod and take up a lot less memory space than audio CDs. You'll have to check with your ipod's equipment manual or supplier as to how much of this Bible you can get on your ipod at any one time as this will depend on the memory/storage capacity on you i pod. Yours, Les
Q:

If I don't have an MP3 player is there any way I can listen to this voice only Bible reading on my home stereo or in the car?

A:Hi, Les. Provided you have a pc or laptop with a CD reader/writer, which I'm guessing you have, you'll be able to listen to the recordings on your computer. You can also transfer the mp3 files from the CDs in this set to your computer. Using the standard software on your computer (such as Windows Media Player or Real player) you can convert them to audio files. You can then 'burn' them onto a blank recordable CD in a standard audio format so that they'll play on any CD player in your home or car. The only problem is, while mp3 files are small enough to let you have the entire Bible on just 6 CDs, audio cd files are much bigger. So much bigger in fact that and it might take up to 60 audio CDs to contain the whole Bible. That's why the creators of the NIV Audio Bible chose to use the MP3 format. Yours, Les
Q:

How are the tracks broken up. Is there one track per book or 1 track per chapter?

A:Hi, Paul. Thanks for your question about the NIV Audio Bible on MP3. The tracks arranged by chapter by chapter in sequence and not grouped into 'folders' for each book. This means that the Bible flows through very smoothly chapter on chapter when you're listening, but that there is a very large number of tracks to sort through if you're trying to find a particular chapter. Yours, Les
Q:

I have a CD player on my stereo & a DVD ROM on my computer but i'm not sure if this will work on either. What is an MP3 CD product? Do i need a certain piece of equipment for this to work? Being dyslexic this product would be perfect for me as reading the bible is a slow & difficult affair. Thanks for any advice. Stuart.

A:Hi, Stuart. Thanks for your question - don't worry, this gets asked many times. Audio CDs will play on your CD player and in your computer's CD/DVD drive. However, this product is not on Audio CDs but on MP3. MP3 is a special kind of CD recording which allows much more information (sound, words, music) to be put on a CD disk. For instance a complete Bible in Audio CD might take up to 15 CDs. Recording it in the MP3 format takes as few as 6 CD. MP3 CDs will play on your computer's CD/DVD drive, but won't play on most older stereos and CD players. Many newer ones can handle MP3 CDs but you'd need to check your player's manual or with your supplier/seller. The main purpose of MP3 CDs is to transfer the disc's contents via a computer to a personal stereo like an ipod, other mobile device such as a smart phone or ipad type of thing or your computer, laptop or tablet. If you order this NIV Audio Bible on MP3 CD be sure to read the specifications on the case thoroughly before opening. This is because - while this an excellent reading of the entire NIV Bible by David Suchet - once opened it can't be exchanged or returned as unwanted. Yours, Les
Q:

A:Hi Clive, This Audio CD is currently only available in MP3 format, though we do have the following NIV CD audio Bible available: http://www.eden.co.uk/shop/niv-listeners-bible-complete-cd-1001792.html I hope this helps, Yours, Nia
Q:

Q:

Is David Suchet reading the most recent anglicised version of the NIV?

A:Hi, Colin. Thanks for your question about David Suchet's reading of the NIV Audio Bible on MP3 CD. This 80 hour recording on 6 MP3 CD discs uses the 2011 translation of the New International Version Bible. Yours, Les.

Publisher's Description

Ever since he became a Christian at the age of forty, it has been Poirot actor David Suchet's dream to make an audio recording of the whole Bible. In between filming the final episodes of Poirot, David Suchet spent over 200 hours in the recording studio to create the very first full-length audio version of the NIV Bible spoken by a single British actor.

The 78-hour recording is available on MP3 CD.

Endorsements

"David Suchet has been best-known for years for his TV portrayal of Agatha Christie's detective Hercule Poirot. This recording of him reading every word of the New International Version of the Bible is an entirely different sort of tour de france. It is also wonderful. Suchet's voice, freed from the stiff disguise of Poirot's accent, is melodic but strong. He reads in a measured way, always full of feeling." - The Tablet 2014
