I think it’s a brilliant idea. Most kids today are media-savvy, and tend to listen more than they read. This interactive generation of audio and visual learners requires more creative ways to getting to the Word of God, and this Bible is just the way to do it!
“Imagine putting on a headset and listening to the soundtrack from your favorite action movie. Thatâ€™s the experience both kids and teens will get when they plug into The Word of PromiseÂ® Next Generation. This is not just a word for word reading of the actual Scripture, but an exciting full audio drama experience with color and emotion to help the words come to life. A world-class cast of popular young actors portray the characters of the New Testament. All the action-packed events are combined with dramatized background sounds and a breath-taking musical score to create the most memorable hearing and learning experience possible. Kids today need a way to get into the Word in a form that resonates with their world.”
Panalo, di ba?! And here’s what makes it even more awesome! They’ll recognize many of the voice actors! This Bible stars a Hollywood-level cast of young talent including Cody Linley (Hanna Montana, Dancing with the Stars) as Jesus, AnnaSophia Robb (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) as Mary Magdalene, Jordin Sparks (American Idol Season Five 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).
Sweet. I know. You can click here for more information, like I did when I saw a link to it above my GMail.
Note: I am not getting paid in any way for writing about this Bible. I just think it’s way cool. Kudos, folks at Thomas Nelson.
