Contributor Two Contributor Two

Romans 10:17 says that "faith comes from hearing the message," and now, NIV Live: A Bible Experience reintroduces Genesis through Revelation in a powerful and vivid dramatic presentation that envelops listeners as they hear the Word of God. The Bible's eternal story is read by a talented, multicultural cast of actors, musicians, pastors and teachers including Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr., Emmy winner Patricia Heaton, Grammy-nominated singer Martha Munizzi, Grammy winning singer/producer Kirk Franklin, pastors Erwin McManus, Craig Groeschel, Jonathan Falwell and many others.

NIV Live uses text from the New International Version, the world's most popular modern-English Bible, and the readings are accompanied by a beautiful score performed by the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, making this an unforgettable listening experience.

“Part of the beauty of NIV Live is that it doesn’t belong to any one segment of the Christian community,” says director Chip Hurd. “The cast transcends denomination and demographics to unite the whole Christian family around God’s Word.” And Patricia Heaton, the voice of Mary Magdalene, says that hearing NIV Live “makes it very real, so that these people aren’t just historical figures, but they become real to you and you understand that we are all connected through all these generations.”

The complete set features 79 CDs mastered in 3D theatrical sound, a bonus "making of" DVD, free digital downloads, a mobile app and online access to bonus material. This set and other packages are now available for sale at, and the CDs can also be found at, and other outlets.
