I‘ve been listening to The Word of Promise Next Generation MP3 version of the Bible. I have two tween girls that love to listen to their MP3 players day and night. At their age, we are still able to monitor 100% of what they listen to. The fact that we get to download the New Testament on their MP3 player is awesome enough, but the voices of those reading the words of the bible are some of my girls’ heroes is the icing on the cake.
The voices include a Hollywood-level cast of young talent including Cody Linley (Dancing with the Stars) as Jesus, AnnaSophia Robb (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) as Mary Magdalene, Emily Osment (Hannah Montanna) as Mary, the Mother of Jesus, Jordin Sparks (American Idol Winner) as Elizabeth, Corbin Bleu (High School Musical) as Peter, Alyson Stoner (Cheaper by the Dozen) as Martha, and narrated by Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings)
I could not have put together a better cast of readers for them. My girls have loved their little kid Bible’s with bright colors and words, but this is a next level of learning and growing in God’s word for them. I am giving this to my girls for Christmas and I look forward to seeing how they learn and grow from listening.
I personally am a very busy Mom, so I have enjoyed listening to the Bible at home while I do my work at home. It’s been great. I know the girls will love this too!
If you have kids in the tween/teen ages, you might still have time to order this for Christmas. It would make an awesome gift.
