The Spoken Bible

Like apples of gold in settings of silver,
so is a word skillfully spoken.

Proverbs 25:11 (NET)

Welcome to The Spoken Bible: The Bible as it was meant to be heard.

Spoken by Paul Douglas Boyer

My overall guiding principle is to create an audio recording of the Bible that sounds as if it were being told to someone, not read to them.

That is, spoken.

I am recording the NET Bible® (NET). Besides having a very accommodating copyright policy, the NET Bible® sounds very natural when spoken. I encourage you to also read the NET Bible® for yourself and make use of the 60,000 plus translation notes that explain why they chose to use the words they did.

I started speaking Mark and will continue through the New Testament, speaking the Psalms and Proverbs, and then speaking the remainder of the Old Testament. It may take me several years to finish, but it will be worth it!
