The creative team behind the No.1 selling audio Bible in history, Inspired By…The Bible Experience, has done it again. They have created the largest audio-Bible production to date using the world’s No. 1 English-language translation, the New International Version (NIV), to create NIV Live: A Bible Experience. With audio performances from Oscar®, Emmy® and Grammy Award® nominees and winners, as well as some of today’s most respected and dynamic pastors, NIV Live offers listeners an audio experience of Scripture like never before.
NIV Live: A Bible Experience packs a sound design that rivals most Hollywood blockbuster films. Its multi sensory, cinematic 3D enhanced sound and musical score by the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra makes hearing the Word a truly unforgettable listening experience.
With audio performances by such stars as Cuba Gooding, Jr. (Jerry Maguire), Patricia Heaton (The Middle), Antonio Sabàto Jr. (General Hospital), CCH Pounder (The Shield) and Christopher Gorham (Covert Affairs) they’ve joined respected pastors such as Craig Groeschel (YouVersion and LifeChurch.TV), Erwin McManus (Mosaic Church), Jonathan Falwell (Thomas Road Baptist Church), Miles McPherson (The Rock Church in San Diego) and Robert Jeffress (First Baptist Church in Dallas) to lend their voices to this all-star ensemble cast.
“Part of the beauty of NIV Live is that it doesn’t belong to any one segment of the Christian community,” said Chip Hurd, director of both productions. “The cast transcends denomination and demographics to unite the whole Christian family around God’s Word.”
Distributed by Zondervan, NIV Live has been available everywhere Bibles are sold since October 1st.
“We are pleased to partner with the stellar creative team behind NIV Live: A Bible Experience to bring this Hollywood-quality, cinematic audio production into the most popular NIV Bible Translation,” said Chip Brown, senior vice president and group publisher for Zondervan.
From Cecil B. DeMille’s The Ten Commandments to the History Channel’s miniseries The Bible, the Bible has long been a source of inspiration for Hollywood. NIV Live has a rare combination of Hollywood A-listers and leading pastors from some of the Christian community’s fastest-growing churches, giving God’s Word a fresh, unique voice.
The diverse cast also includes:
§ Tatyana Ali
§ Phil Morris
