Recently we finished the remastered version of the King James Audio Bible and I have posted the new version on its own dedicated Sound Cloud account. Each of the 66 books has its own folder and playlist. You can find it here:
In this remastered version, all breath and background noises and clicks have been removed and each chapter is uniform in volume and mastered with optimum EQ and compression.
I recorded the King James Bible off and on between 2008 and 2012. Since then we have had a lot more experience in recording and mastering in the production of the various African tribal Bibles we have been recording. So we have now brought the King James Audio Bible up to the same high quality production level.
The original recording has actually been available on Amazon and Audible for a few years, but I never went in to look at any comments or anything. But recently I did and was very encouraged by the reviews. I compiled some of the best ones and, if you are interested, you can read them below. I also have a higher star rating than any other narrator.
I am not sharing this to toot my own horn, but just to give the glory and thanks to the Lord for the gift He gave me. Reading is something I could do naturally and I didn’t have to work or study or practice to develop that gift, so its not something I can take any credit for.
Shortly I will make available “The Bible 365” which is 365 of the main stories from the Bible, one story for every day of the year.
CUSTOMER REVIEWS FROM AUDIBLE AND AMAZON TO THE KING JAMES AUDIO BIBLE READ BY CHRISTOPHER GLYN
“The Complete King James Version Audio Bible is a step above other versions I’ve heard, it really drew me in, captivating me with a good balance of reverence for the Holy Word and emotional vibrance inherent in such a great literary work.”
“This is the third version of the KJV I now have. Scourby was the standard reading, but this has replaced it because the pace is perfect, the emphasis is, to my taste, just right, finding the balance between drama and detail which is so much a matter of timing. I find this ticks every box. Superb.”
“Christopher Glyn’s talented voice and knowledge of the text makes for a rich listening experience. I’d recommend it enthusiastically to anyone looking for a fuller inspirational experience.”
“Glyn’s voice and diction are clear and pleasing to the ear, and his sense of pace as well as rhythm is second to none. Not only this, he succeeds in bringing out different voices without overdoing it. There’s deep emotion in the Bible, vociferous and unrelenting, and Glyn’s reading captures it. I think this will become my go-to audio Bible, if it isn’t already — it’s that good.”
