NIV Bible: the Prophets - Part 1
By New International Version
Read by David Suchet
This audio book contains three of the major prophetic books of the Old Testament - Isaiah, Jeremiah and Lamentations, narrated by Poirot actor David Suchet.
The first three of the prophetic books of the Bible, from Isaiah to Lamentations, using the New International Version 2011 translation, read by Poirot actor, David Suchet.
The sixteen Old Testament prophets preached God's Word, including both promises and judgment warnings to Israel and Judah, between about 760 BC and 460 BC - a period of great change for God's people. The prophets spoke into the situation - explaining persuasively why the people were living such hard lives in foreign exile, but they also prophesied how God would eventually undo it and redeem his wayward people by grace via a new covenant.
Acclaimed British actor David Suchet brings his deep, melodic and un-rushed voice to this beautiful and profound section of the Bible.
An enhanced ebook, containing the NIV Bible text to accompany the narration is also available.
