The deep, melodic, unrushed voice of David Suchet reading the NIV Bible.

Ever since he became a Christian at the age of forty, it has been Poirot actor David Suchet's dream to make an audio recording of the whole Bible.

This 80-hour recording comes on six MP3 CDs. It can be used on any device that displays the MP3 symbol. You can transfer the audio files for your personal use onto your computer, smartphone, MP3 player and other compatible devices. It is also available separately as an audio digital download.

For me it fulfils a 27 year ambition. — David Suchet
He has spent 200 hours recording the entire Bible from Genesis to the Book of Revelation - 752,702 words, in his deep, melodic, unrushed voice. — The Guardian
His appetite for work is frankly alarming. While starring in Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey into Night and filming his final Poirot, Suchet has also spent 200 hours in the past year recording the entire Bible - 752,702 words - in his sonorous, antique voice. The recording will be released next Easter. — The Telegraph

David Suchet, the British actor best known for his portrayal of Agatha Christie's Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, has recorded an audiobook of the entire Bible from Genesis to the Book of Revelation.
It took him over 200 hours in the recording studio to deliver the 752,702 words, the very first full-length audio version of the Bible spoken by a single British actor.
Suchet became a Christian after reading a hotel room Bible in 1986, his moment of epiphany came upon reading St Paul's epistle to the Romans, in which he proclaims: "if God be for us, who can be against us?". Suchet says of his own faith: "I am a Christian by faith. I like to think it sees me through a great deal of my life."
In 1989 Suchet was one of a band of leading British actors who recorded parts of the Bible for an earlier Hodder & Stoughton project: Suchet reading the Gospel of St John. Now, close to 30 years on and in between filming the final episodes of Poirot, Suchet has produced an 80-hour recording available to buy from this Easter and already in the audiobook charts on Amazon.

David Suchet, the actor best known for his TV role as detective Hercule Poirot, has recorded an audio version of The Bible. Suchet - who became a Christian in 1986 after reading a Bible in a hotel - undertook the project for publisher Hodder and Stoughton. — The Irish News
Fans having withdrawal symptoms for the melodic timbre of a moustachioed David Suchet are in for an aural treat. [...] Suchet who converted to Christianity at the age of 40 after reading a Bible in a hotel room in 1986, devoted 200 hours of his time to recording the audio book, and donated his fee to charity. — The Metro

David Suchet CBE has recorded the first ever full-length audio version of the New International Version Bible spoken by a single British actor for Hodder & Stoughton.
The 80-hour recording will be available on MP3 CD (four CDs) and as an audio digital download. E-books of each section of the Bible enhanced with Suchet's audio narration will also be available.

— The Bookseller
This audio Bible will be useful for so many people. If you have a busy life and find it hard to spend time regularly reading God's Word, you could listen to it in the car on the way to work. It can be used for Bible study alone, and in groups, it will also be useful for those with a range of physical and learning disabilities, the elderly, and for those who are unable to read. — Scattering the Stones
The Bible means a great deal to me, and I admire Suchet as an actor, so I sat down this morning with high expectations. Fifteen chapters into Genesis and I knew I possessed a thing of beauty. I was transported deep into the words I was listening to. — Karen Turnbull, Knowing Alice
In the same year I have finished the complete works of Agatha Christie and also read the whole Bible. It's lovely to feel that whenever I go up to the sky, I've left that behind. — Carey Lodge, David Suchet as interviewed by Christian Today
It's arguably his most personal project yet. After becoming a Christian while reading Romans 8 in a hotel Bible in 1986, Suchet quickly realised that he could use his talents to share his newfound faith. — Carey Lodge, Christian Today
The Bible makes the most wonderful collection of literature; it's got stories, poetry, songs, drama, fortune telling and prophecy - it really is an extraordinary collection of works. When you're holding the Bible, you're holding a library. — Carey Lodge, David Suchet as interviewed by Christian Today
Actor David Suchet became a Christian as a result of reading a hotel-room Bible in 1986. He says that after his conversion he decided he wanted 'to put my voice to the Bible - not only bits of the Bible but the whole thing.' Many years later, he has achieved his ambition. — The War cry
I've had quite a lot of Audio Bibles over the years and at Easter this year I got the new NIV Audio Bible narrated by David Suchet. It is head and shoulders above any other Audio Bible that you might have used with a clear UK accent, no background music distracting. For those who find reading tough, or those who just want a change then please consider trying this. It's worth the cost and Suchet will bring the words to life and literally make them dance them across the page. Listen to the resurrection narratives if you get it and hear the excitement of his voice at the words, 'He is not here, He is risen.'. . . Another tool bridging the ages of the 'book' and the 'digital'. — Birds Have Nests blog
David Suchet has been best-known for years for his TV portrayal of Agatha Christie's detective Hercule Poirot. This recording of him reading every word of the New International Version of the Bible is an entirely different sort of tour de force. It is also wonderful. Suchet's voice, freed from the stiff disguise of POirot's accent, is melodic but strong. He reads in a measured way, always full of feeling. — Julian Margaret Gibbs, The Tablet
As to the performance, you cannot get much better than David Suchet. His use of light and shade is excellent, the clarity and diction is perfection and his voice extremely listenable. I would particularly recommend his reading of the psalms, which are full of emotion. For the household or someone who just wishes to study the Bible in sections or in its entirety, this is an ideal medium to use. — Reflections
Extracts of the NIV Audio Bible have been broadcast across BBC Radio 2 and have been featured on The Today Programme on BBC Radio 4. — BBC Radio

David Suchet is one of the best actors of his generation. He's a star of stage and screen, probably best known for his iconic portrayal of Agatha Christie's Poirot.
He's also a committed Christian who's passionately committed to the Bible. Suchet has recorded the whole of the New International Version - the first ever recording of the NIV by a single actor.
It was a hit for publishers Hodder when it was released 18 months ago, with total sales of 25,000 across all platforms.
It's fair to say that it was a surprise hit; no one predicted its popularity. And it's largely down to Suchet himself - who's donated his fee from the project to a fund for training Church of England priests - that the vision became a reality.
Suchet had recorded parts of the Bible before. He was inspired to push for a recording of the whole NIV by a woman from Northern Ireland with multiple sclerosis, who wrote to him saying she had listened to his recording of John's Gospel because her disease had left her partially sighted. By the time she'd finished it, she realised she had to know more about the Bible and prayed that God would help her. She woke up the next morning and she could see.

— Christian Today
Hodder sold 15,000 copies of the original recording - which was publish in an MPV/CD box set - even though it cost £40. The success of that venture led Hodder to produce two versions of the app - one with Suchet's audio recording and one without. — The Bookseller
The brilliance of this app is that on top of a clean and and friendly reading experience, you have access to award-winning audio content. — iBelieve Magazine
