Word of Promise Next Generation - New Testament

Holy Bible: Word of Promise Next Generation - New Testament: Dramatized Audio BibleHoly Bible: Word of Promise Next Generation - New Testament: Dramatized Audio Bible

Now the entire New Testament is ready for the Wired Generation.

Today's youth ingest media at a faster rate than any previous generation. And they can't get enough! The Word of Promise: Next Generation - New Testament is the perfect way for young multi-taskers to absorb Scripture. This ambitious recording makes the Word accessible to more kids than ever before.

Starring a Hollywood-level cast of young talent including Cody Linley (Hanna Montana, Dancing with the Stars) as Jesus, AnnaSophia Robb (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) as Mary Magdalene, Jordin Sparks (American Idol Winner) as Elizabeth, Cobin Bleu (High School Musical) as Peter, Alyson Stoner (Cheaper by the Dozen) as Martha, and narrated by Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings). The project includes informative book introductions by author Max Lucado and his daughter, Jenna Lucado, who is a speaker on the Revolve® Tour.

The Word of Promise: Next Generation is much more than just a word-for-word reading: it's an all-star cast performing audio drama with a rich original score and Hollywood special effects. When Jesus walks on the water, kids will feel like they're in the boat. When Peter waits in the courtyard during the Lord's trial, the fire will crackle. The ambient sounds of the Holy land, the breath-taking musical score, the world-class young actors and the timeless Word of Promise all combine to deliver an unparalleled achievement.

Set includes 24 hours of audio drama on 20 CDs and a bonus 75 minute Behind-the-Scenes DVD featuring interviews with the actors.

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
This audio Bible was quite the experience. It's over 23 hours of voice read Bible with various actors that if you are involved in the teen movies today you know and are familiar with. I liked it and I do think that it would be fabulous for a pre-teen. For myself, the voice of Jesus was so "airy" and exaggerated that it really frustrated me. But overall it was a neat experience.

View all my reviews.

My friend Deena loved it however and said this:

I'm giving "The Word Of Promise: Next Generation" the Golden bookmark award, with a set of praying hands. Hold these young people up in prayer, whether you believe that THEY believe or not...because if they don't...they need to.

Happy Reading!
