British actor David Suchet

Pre-order for NIV Audio Bible: Read by David Suchet

Poirot actor and living legend David Suchet has fulfilled what he describes as “a 27 year ambition” to make an audio recording of the entire NIV Bible, from Genesis right the way through to Revelation.

To be released this Easter, the 78 hour recording will be the first full-length audio Bible spoken by a single British actor. Suchet spent over 200 hours in the recording studio while filming the final series of his hit detective TV series.

In a video to promote the new project, Suchet explains that he first became a Christian in 1986 and quickly realised that as an actor he had a particular gift he could use to share his faith. "I thought ’Well one thing I can do, or I think I can do, is to read’, and I’ve for many, many years felt that I wanted to put my voice to the Bible, and not only bits of the Bible, but the whole thing.

The 67-year-old actor has big dreams for the recording, the fee for which he is donating entirely to charity. “What I hope from a personal point of view, is that whoever wants to will be able to read the Bible at the same time as listen to it, or listen to it without reading it, and that they will want to keep returning to it,” he says.

The audio book will be sold in CD and digital formats. Pre-order now on Amazon.co.uk »

Just writing to say that I am enjoying your reading version NIV UK at Bible Gateway.
I did not realize that it was you at first but your voice sounded familiar.
Thank you for your effort.
