Truth and Life Audio Bible

Before television, there was radio and radio dramatic theater. And after bound books came audio books. Now comes the effort to combine the two and utilize the techniques of radio drama to bring Sacred Scripture to life.

Two years in the making, “Truth & Life Dramatized Audio Bible New Testament” brings together more than 70 actors, over 20 audio engineers and 100 media-development experts across three continents who amassed 10,000 production hours for this first-ever Catholic edition of the New Testament.

Listeners will hear every word from Matthew through Revelation dramatized by world-renowned actors like Neal McDonough as Jesus, Julia Ormond as Mary, Stacy Keach as John, Blair Underwood, Michael York, Kristen Bell, and John Rhys-Davies.

Since we’re naming names, this extraordinary 18-CD, 22-hour New Testament is endorsed by the Vatican, bears the imprimatur of Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York, and has a special foreword by Pope Benedict XVI. . . .

This sounds like it would be good for those long car rides or for listening to on an mp3 player while on those long walks and runs.
