James Earl Jones Reads the Bible (The New Testament) Audio CD (http://www.amazon.com/James-Jones-Reads-Bible-Testament/dp/1618944460/ref=pd_sim_14_3?ie=UTF8&refRID=0T0RSA6RC1H9QGA6Q6PM)


My wife is working abroad and right before she left she sent me a surprise gift that I received yesterday and listened to as I was going to bed.
Probably one of the best voices to be chosen to read the scriptures.

If you can find it it is so worth the money. And there is a full unabridged Bible version wherein JEJ reads the New Testament but not the Old. This on Amazon. My copy does not have the background music, which is the edition shared here. I sought out a full Bible version this morning with his voice featured and that's how I learned all this.
The music edition that accompanies his reading isn't very good quality music at all, in my opinion of course.

This would be a perfect Christmas gift.  ::smile::

I think I saw that at Amazon when I was looking for for the full Bible audio version featuring JEJ. I agree it is an all star cast. Great addition to this thread. Thank you for adding that.

He does indeed. And he's overcome quite a lot to achieve that. I saw an interview with him once wherein he shared that as a child he had a horrible stutter that prevented him from speaking clearly most times. He happened on someone who helped him overcome that through various vocal exercises. Today he's one of the most recognizable voices in entertainment. And thank God he'll live on as the great voice that read God's New Testament.
I adore him. Even when he was Darth Vader. "Luke, I am your father...." And I rock as James Earl Jones! ::noworries::

If I get another one it will be Johnny Cash reading the New King James.  I like JEJ and all (great voice) but am not a great fan of KJV.

Now if he would read the New American Standard ......


Johnny's version:
