The Holy Bible is the most influential and widely published book ever written. It has been translated into over 2000 languages and is still the world's best-selling book every year. English speakers around the world are acclaiming this new recording of the King James Bible by British narrator Christopher Glyn, who draws on 35 years' experience as a Christian narrator and broadcaster to bring you this expressive reading which captures the beauty and power of God's Word and makes the King James English clear and easy to understand. The New Testament was completed last year, and we are very pleased to announce that the recording of the Old Testament has been finalized just in time to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible.

Listener Opinions

    " Reading this classic was amazing. He did such a good job of capturing his experience rather than what was happening throughout the journey. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Skylar Hatfield | 2/4/2014

    " I enjoyed the wit, gentleness, and generosity of the writer of this book. Mr. Slocum was an interesting person whom I would have liked to have met. I enjoy stories of the sea, and have read many. I do not know anything about the vocabulary of seamanship or ships, but I find the narratives of sailors compelling. This is particualarly interesting, because it is the story of the first lone circumnavigation of the world. It took over three years for Mr. Slocum to complete his endeavor. In those years, he met individuals from across the globe. His weapon of choice against canibals? Carpet tacks. His most unruly passenger? A goat. His greatest savior? A ghost from the Pinta. This book would be good to present to a geography class or a sociology class. Very instructive and educational. There is a Joshua Slocum society which keeps a log of all the single sailor circumnavigations of the earth. This is only one of many interesting sites about Mr. Slocum. "

    " First hand account of the first man to sail around the world. Enough said. I love nautical books, but this one was especially fun as it captures the solitude of his journey. He describes meeting cultures and people who are long disappeared. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 1/31/2014

    " I'm sadly not in a mood for romance books right now (sorry Rachel! and the 30 books she's loaned me). I'm more into complete lack of romance and adventure stories. That's my life right now: no romance, one BIG adventure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joshua Harris | 1/29/2014

    " Sailing around the globe is a dream of mine. This trip has inspired countless other adventure seekers to attempt to circumnavigate the world. Some have been successful. Others have failed. Joshua S succeeded (and even built his boat from scratch and by hand) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 1/27/2014

    " I gave this book 4 stars because I LOVE real-life adventure of any kind. To a fellow lover of this kind of book, I would actually say it is a 5 star book, but to those not equally inclined, it may be a 2 or 3 star. Hope that makes sense. All about Cape Horn and its extremely difficult currents that have sunk multitudes of ships. The Straits of Magellan, Tierra del Fuego, the fascinating and gruelling life of the indigenous Indians. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jrobertus | 1/17/2014

    " 5 stars. absolutely marvelous narrative by the man who built a boat and sailed around the world in 1895-7. elegant, humane, noble. i can't recommend it enough. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Austin. Moore | 1/15/2014

    " I would offten find my self reading till the sun slowly sneaked thru my blindes. But this was worth the hounding from my mother. A must read for anyone wanting a wonderful ride about sailin or refelctions on solitude. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 1/11/2014

    " If you love to sail, you'll like this book. Keep in mind it was written in the 19th century. All considered it is a great memoir, especially if you'd like to have sailed around the world in the 19th century. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debra | 1/7/2014

    " Although this is an amazing feat and very interesting in all, I couldn't get into the book. I would like to learn more about it, but for only a 7 hour audiobook it seemed to last forever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard Hansen | 1/6/2014

    " This is a fantastic true adventure story. It helped me to realize that I have the power to accomplish any dreams I have, however out-there they may be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lake Lady | 12/16/2013

    " actually not quite finished but close enough to meet my goal. Quite enjoyable reading with a quirky sense of humor in unexpected places "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Li | 12/11/2013

    " Currently listening to the LibreVox version, and it's very good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tahia | 12/1/2013

    " Great novel for those that love the sea! The tacks on the deck was my favorite tactic. Clever. I love this kind of stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Myron | 11/19/2013

    " In 1895 telecommunications and transportation were much more elegant. Capt. Slocum's voyage is recorded in beautiful detail with encounters of distant peoples, storms & perils, and introspection that advance my thinking. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 April Atkinson | 8/22/2013

    " I usually love adventure/travel books, I cannot say that about this one. If you want to read about a guy who sails around the world alone, the waves, how he stocks his ship and his loneliness then this is the book for you. I not, I would skip it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Douglas Ivan Brown | 6/26/2013

    " A good read. Joshua Slocum made this incredible journey after he was "50"! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Russell | 6/14/2013

    " Slocum's narrative of the first solo circumnavigation of the earth is a really fun read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 5/26/2013

    " Warm-hearted with dry dry bone-dry humor. Excellent book for anyone who values solitude or anyone who wonders how they can come to value solitude. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Samantha | 5/4/2013

    " interesting subject, but a little boring. i enjoyed reading about the sailing adventures slocum had. but it was written by a sailor, not an author and it reads like it. a little too dry to be really interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann | 3/9/2013

    " ereading this, and enjoying the 1st person narrative. Technically detailed, but not dry . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cmcquade17 | 3/8/2013

    " Fantastic, this book changed my life and my ideas of what is possible. I actually have the plans to build an updated version of Slocum's boat and one day i will build it maybe bringing solar sailor into the mix. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jp | 2/25/2013

    " A story of amazing adventure after building the "Spray" virtually from ground up, and with his own hands! It has definitely inspired wanderlust in me...... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 2/15/2013

    " 4.5 stars. very enjoyable. capt. slocum has a very understated humor that is a delight to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mjdrean | 1/12/2013

    " An absorbing and detailed story of the first person to have sailed around the world alone. The language has a definite "old fashioned" style which may bug some. I advise to continue, you'll more than likely get used to it. Joshua Slocum is a charming and fascinating gentleman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 12/23/2012

    " This book was exactly what I wanted it to be, and that is infrequently the case "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cottero | 11/28/2012

    " A great sailing odyssey! Capt Slocum has a wonderful disposition and does a terrific job of describing his adeventures in a form that brings out the wonderment of the world! You do not have to enjoy sailing to like this book, but it helps. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Raymond III | 11/1/2012

    " It was an interesting read. I wished the author would have went into more detail describing the places he visited. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kobe Bryant | 10/8/2012

    " vintage account of some idiot who fixed a boat and went sailing. meeting people, having adventures. i liked the part where a tree crab got loose and made a mess of his cabin and a goat ate his hat "
