Creation Story (Genesis 1-11) Dramatized Audio CD
Performed by Steve Cook
The Bible tells us time and time again to “hear” the Word of God, but how often do we actually do this? The Bible compares “listening” to God to “obeying” what God says, but we need to be able to hear God’s voice, before we can listen to God’s commands. In our modern day, where almost every Christian has at least one copy of the Bible (and usually many more), we have convinced ourselves that reading God’s Word is the same as hearing God’s Word.
The Creation Story reading is based on the majestic and historic text of the 1599 Geneva Bible, which was the first English Bible to be fully translated from the original languages of Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek – the three languages Scripture was written in thousands of years ago.
Award-winning actor and sound designer, Steve Cook, presents a dramatic reading of the Creation Account word-for-word from Genesis 1-11. These first chapters of the Bible record the true account of where everything began from the Creation of the universe and the first people, to the cataclysmic destruction of the global flood and the beginning of the new world populated by Noah and his family. Performing all the voices, Steve adds an audio panorama of cinematic music and sound effects that will make you feel like you’ve been transported back through time, experiencing history with your very ears.
“This is a great way to expose my kids to Scripture. They love listening to it. They want it played in the car, at home, and especially at bedtime. To hear them talking along with the narrator, even getting ahead of him, fills my heart with joy. They are becoming well grounded in one of the most important sections of the Bible. This exposure will be significant to them later in life, but for now they think it is just plain fun. I wholly and heartily endorse this product.” Dr. Robert Carter (Creation Ministries International, US)
