.- With the support of a Vatican imprimatur, a celebrity voiced audio production of the New Testament is set to be released this week.

The audio series, featuring celebrities such as Neil McDonough,  Julia Ormand and Kristen Bell, was produced by New York Times bestselling author and broadcast journalist for EWTN, Raymond Arroyo.

Available on November 1, the 18-CD, 22-hour series is called Truth & Life Dramatized Audio Bible New Testament, with contributions from over 70 actors.

“They're not just reading,” Arroyo explained, “these actors are performing, sharing these stories in the same way they were originally communicated – passed from person to person as part of an oral tradition.”

“The stories come alive (think radio drama style with sound effects and original music), propelling us right into history, the way it might have happened,” he added.

Arroyo noted that reading "or listening to Scripture being read is often a confusing, dull experience."

"But performed like this," he said, "you are thrown into the middle of the action. The Bible is suddenly not only understandable, but arresting and compelling."
