Amazon is giving away a Free ESV New Testament Audio Bible. The Bible is in MP3 format which will allow you to listen to it on most personal media players.
I’m a big fan of audio books and especially audio Bibles. While an audio Bible will not allow you to easily read a passage over and over to meditate on it, the audio format will allow you to hear the book as a whole and grasp the big picture.
There are two downsides to Amazon’s free version. First, it is dramatized with somewhat annoying electronically generated music in the background. Second, the reading talent isn’t quite on par with what you would expect from professional audiobooks. However, since it’s free, you really can’t beat the price, and if the shortcomings of this version get on your nerves, you can always go out and buy something better.
