The Bible Experience

In December, my aunt was telling me about her purchase of the Bible Experience. She was able to get it while it was 50% off and it included the study bible that went along with it. She had purchased it for Aunt Hattie for Christmas and mentioned I should get one for my mom. Even on sale I was kind of giving the price the side eye like hmmmmm I don’t know about all of that. I thought about possibly getting one for my mom but then my ADD made me forget all about it.

Fast forward to after Christmas and the topic of the Bible Experience came up. I had asked my aunt what was she gonna do with the Bible Experience set that she had bought Aunt Hattie. She mentioned that she was just gonna keep it. She mentioned that they were gonna go back on sale again and my mom had mentioned that she wanted one. So I gave my mom the money and she went out and bought us the set.

I’ve started listening to the cd’s and I love it. I’m so glad that we received the bible that comes along with it because it would be hard to follow along without it. I will admit that I probably wouldn’t win a in bible trivia because my knowledge is not where it should be considering all the years I’ve spent in Sunday School. However, I’m really actually learning. I really am retaining this information. To the point that I can actually share what I’ve read/listened to.

The only thing that I hate is that the cd’s came in this HUGE case. I wish I could tell you how many cd’s there are but I don’t remember off the top of my head. At least 40. Maybe more. So you can imagine the size of the case.  Right now I listen and read along to the cd’s in the evening. I would also like to listen to them in my car. But I already know how things are once they make they way to my car. They may not make it out. So with that being said the cd’s probably will not leave my house.

It’s also fun to recognize the actors/actresses voice. Of course James Earl Jones voice is always recognizable. I was able to pick out Monique a few nights ago. Like I noted earlier, I listen to them in the evenings. I’ll pop the cd in and then I’ll read along. I’ll admit I get distracted with reading along because I want to read ahead instead of reading with them. Sometime’s I’ll just sit the bible down and listen to it. Sometimes if I’m laying down for a nap I’ll stick the cd in. Boy, when I do that I have SOME CRAZY DREAMS. I blame the bible. LOL

But overall, I highly recommend purchasing this set. It is phenomenal. I am enjoying it so much. Right now my method is listening to each cd twice before I move on to the next one. That way I can ensure that I’m retaining the information. I know last night I was listening like I remember all of this stuff. It’s very fascinating and definitely worth the money.

    Oh no don’t hang your head…. You know our stuff don’t get publicized all that well anyway….. But it’s a whole bunch of black actors, actresses, and musicians who are reading/acting out the bible…..

    They do a great job. And it has different sound effects included in the background to give you the whole experience….. It’s really nice..

    Oh and after Aunt Hattie had passed I was thinking I wanted to read the bible in her honor just because I know that she knew the bible hands down….. So that’s another reason I purchased it. But man, this really has me feeling like a bible scholar already.

    And I’ve tried to read the bible before but I don’t think I was actually reading and comprehending it. But now I can say that I’m actually retaining the information that I’m hearing & seeing….

    My aunt was able to get hers for 60 and I believe me and my mom’s was 70….. Them jokers are over 100.00 regular priced. But I would recommend most definitely getting the bible that comes with it. Ours was free as part of the promotion. But on the top of the pages it has like Disc 3 Track 1 or something to help you keep track.

    @Comeback… I was wondering the same thing… I want to find out more about it… Maybe this weekend I’ll pop in some of the extra stuff to see if it talks about any of the creating this process.

    And then I believe that they had just did the old testament first and since it was a huge hit then they went back and did the the new testament too.

    But I don’t know… I’ll try to research it and then maybe I’ll write a blog on the behind the scenes stuff.
