Sixty-six books. Eighty-seven hours. Sixteen narrators. One Bible. Pure Voice.
We here at Skyboat approach each project with a velvet glove, treating each author, narrator, and text with the love, respect, and appreciation they deserve. We take tremendous pride in the being trusted with such a project.
Executive Producer Brad Hill and Zondervan Audio entrusted the care of this immense and revered project on the 400th Anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible to our team here at Skyboat. We cast it with the brightest stars in our industry, we recorded it for weeks on end with painstaking accuracy, and we edited it with care and attention down to the smallest of detail. Watch the video below to hear Golden Voice Scott Brick, Tony Award Winner John Rubinstein, and Academy Award Nominees Samantha Eggar and Theodore Bikel share their experiences narrating this epic project.
It is difficult to express the amount of love and care that went into the creation of this audiobook program—this Book of all books, this Book made up of sixty-six books overflowing with timeless tales, peopled with hundreds of characters and names, and language that made us swoon, even in those moments when our noses were buried in pronunciation keys.
The Bible is the best-selling book of all time, and we believe this one stands on its own for one very obvious reason: it’s PURE VOICE.
Just Listen. Pure Voice Bible
