Item description for ESV Bible: New Testament by Crossway Books & Marquis Laughlin...
Overview The new English Standard Verson translation is founded on the belief that the words of the Bible are the very words of God. Setting itself apart from other translations by sacrificing neither accuracy nor readability, the ESV is an 'essentially literal' translation that seeks to duplicate the original texts while taking into account the differences between modern English and the original languages. Relying on the work of more than 50 Bible scholars, as well as the input of a 60-member, multi-denominational Advisory Council, the translation committee chaired by J.I. Packer realized its goals for word-for-word precision and accuracy, literary excellence and readability, and depth of meaning. Read by Marquis Laughlin. 20 CDs. 19 hours.

Reviews - What do customers think about ESV Bible: New Testament?
Absolutely amazing! Dec 5, 2005
I definitely must concur with the first reviewer---Marquis Laughlin delivers the single finest New Testament narration I have ever beheld! Everything about it is simply splendid....NO, MARVELOUS. Why the 5-star review?
First off, Marquis Laughlin. His slow, thoughtful, and emotionally expressive narration makes you feel like you're ACTUALLY THERE, experiencing the story of Jesus. Anyone who cannot follow along with Laughlin's narration is either asleep or brain-dead. Plus, Laughlin is the first narrator I have ever heard who doesn't sound like he's READING the Bible, but producing it from memory. He expresses emotion when necessary, and doesn't over-dramatize. His narration is so.....sublimely extraordinary.
Second, NO BACKGROUND MUSIC. Not that I mind it that much, but the fact there is none makes it that much easier to follow along with. I can concentrate on Marquis, NOT the music. Besides, with a voice like his, why would music be necessary?
Third, I LOVE the English Standard Version very much, and to hear the New Testament from someone like Laughlin adds so much to the story. I look forward to getting his New Testament narration of the New Revised Standard Version, due out next year.
Excellent, excellent Bible narration. I could not recommend one more highly or more enthusiastically!!!!
THE BEST AUDIO BIBLE EVER! Dec 1, 2005
I say without any reservation or exaggeration that this Dramatic Narration of the Complete ESV New Testament by MARQUIS LAUGHLIN is the best audio Bible ever. I have diligently listened to them all. The English Standard Version is a beautiful translation that is made even more attractive by the soulful voice of MARQUIS LAUGHLIN. His passionte, powerful delivery of God's Holy Word is stunning!
