I’m baaaaack…

From Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference, that is. It was GREAT! I took the Career Track and had a terrific time, plus I learned a lot (notice the “terrific time” is before the “learning a lot”).

Anyway, I’ll recap Mount Hermon later. I just got back yesterday and I’m exhausted.

Today I got an email from This week, their free weekly listen (also available as a free download) is an Easter Story excerpt from The Bible Experience, the new Bible audiobook from Zondervan.

The Bible Experience is just WAY COOL. And yes, I’m shouting.

THE BIBLE EXPERIENCE is just that--an experience--that bypasses many of the previous Bible recordings with a full show of music, sound effects, and a dazzling array of celebrity voices.

The producers from Inspired By Media Group put together a cast of more than 80 African-American actors who deliver a rich, diverse rendering of the contemporary Today's New International Version (TNIV) translation in gospel-meeting style. Listeners are treated to a sort of aural kaleidoscope with layers of voices, sound, and music overlapping and occasionally colliding.

The lavish production pulls out all the stops, so this is not a Bible recording for purists. If a modern multimedia production "experience" is what you're after, enjoy the fine voices and often dynamic dramatized readings.-- AudioFile, Portland, Maine

You can listen to the Easter Story excerpt online free, but you might need to belong to Audible’s email newsletter to do that.

You can also download the Easter story excerpt free, but I think you do need to register with in order to do that.

Either way, it’s FREE!

You can also listen to a sample of the Easter Story excerpt on the product information page.


  1. I just discovered that we can also download The Bible Experience: The Easter Story directly from the Zondervan website, as a free mp3 download. There are no hoops to jump through.

    Thanks for this great post to great listening!

  2. I have never read any Goyer or Warren's books, would love the freebies to start off with! Checking out that Bible Experience today - thanks for the tip!
