The New American Standard Bible is one of the most accurate translations of the scriptures. Let professional voice artist Dale McConachie, narrator of over 100 audiobooks, take you on a journey through the Old Testament, where you will discover the relationship between God and the nation of Israel. The Pentateuch deals with the creation of Israel and God establishing a covenant relationship with Israel. The historical books record Israel’s history, its victories and successes, and its defeats and failures. The poetic books give us a more intimate look at God’s relationship with Israel and his passion for Israel to worship and obey him. The prophetic books are God’s call to Israel to repent from its idolatry and unfaithfulness and to return to a relationship of obedience and spiritual fidelity.
Perhaps a better title would be the First Testament. The word old tends to give the idea that the Old Testament is not relevant. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Dale’s goal in this recording was to make a simple but reverent audio copy of God’s Word that you can take with you everywhere you go - while you commute, in the kitchen, or at the gym. You can easily access any chapter of the Old Testament at any time.
What disappointed you about The Old Testament of the New American Standard Audio Bible?
The bible is broken into different chapters without titles. Some of the books of the bible are more than one chapter, so although they are in order it the numbers are not the same as the order of the books. It is there for not good to look up something in particular but if you want to listen to the Bible, as it is read straight through, it is fine.

This Bible would be better if searchable or at least have a table of contents.
Still not happy. There are no chapter titles. I just want to know where and what chapter is the Sirach.
