ESV Hear the Word Audio Bible

Product Review (submitted on November 9, 2009):
Good Audio - with one major shortcoming if you do not use iTunes/iPod

The audio is great. I like the ESV Bible and like the voice of Mr. Heath.

This audio Bible proved to not be the best choice for me due to the following reason: book divisions and chapter divisions are only available if you use iTunes or an iPod. If you use any other MP3 player, you will have 59 files that are not divided according to book of the Bible. If you want to listen to a particular chapter of the Bible, it will take some patience as you try to find it in the middle of a file.

If you are a non-iPod user and you plan to listen to this Bible like you would any other book - from beginning to end - this may be the edition for you.

I originally posted a review of this Bible before the M4B files were available. In response to customer concerns Christian Audio created the M4B version as a solution for iPod users. I applaud Christian Audio for responding to customer concerns and making a solution available for iPod users at no additional charge. I am also thankful for the free downloads offered on each month.
