The Bible and James Earl Jones

Is it bad if I admit to never having sat down and reading the Bible from cover to cover?  Sure, I've read the stories in church, Bible study and all those Sunday schools.  But sitting down and starting with page 1 and reading through all the way until the very last page?  Nope, never did it. 

Well, now I can say I've read ALL of half of the Bible, the New Testament specifically.  Just last week I finished the 14 CD edition of The New Testament, as read by James Earl Jones.  I don't know about you, but I could listen to James Earl Jones read the dictionary and not be bored.  In fact, when I purchased this jewel at Half Price Books, both my mom and David laid dibs on being the next to listen to it.  It was a fine choice if I do say so myself...

Now, I just need to find the Old Testament and listen to it...though I can't seem to find a version read by James Earl Jones.  I suppose I'll have to settle for someone else.  Phooey.

If you're a little rusty on your biblical reading and want try listening to it this way, I would highly recommend this version!

*This will probably be my last post for two weeks as I'm getting married on Saturday and don't intend to take my laptop with me on my honeymoon.  Please hang in there, there will be recipes, book reviews and wedding pictures coming soon!  In the meantime, I'll leave you with this engagement picture.


  1. I always thought James Earl Jones had a good God voice. He is the perfect narrator for that!

  2. Oh and forgot to say CONGRATS...have a fabulous wedding and I can't wait to hear all about it. The engagement picture is awesome so I have no doubt that the wedding pictures will also be amazing. YAY!!! I'll miss you!

  3. I've never read the bible cover to cover either.

    I'm looking forward to hearing all the wedding news and seeing the pics. I love the cute pic of you guys kissing.

  4. Just blogging around and found your blog. But it makes me want to do a return visit, with wedding nesws and alot of things to come. Thanks for letting me visit.
