Mr. Scourby wrote: "Although I have narrated more than 500 books, I consider the Bible my most important work. Why? Because it is the one book that has the power to inspire, encourage, comfort and change the life of the person who hears it. I know this because during the many years since I narrated the Bible, numerous people have written thanking me for creating such a beautiful reading. I have been greatly humbled and moved by the many letters I have received from people around the world telling me how God used the Bible narrations to change their lives and the lives of their loved ones, encourage them in their hour of need, and even healed them as they listened to the Words of Life.
"I am very honored that God chose me as an instrument to narrate his eternal Word . . . I am also proud that I recorded the King James Version. Although many other versions of the Bible have been written, the King James Version in my favorite. It is still recognized by Bible scholars and academics as the most accurate and most beautiful rendition . . . and for the sheer beauty of the English Language the King James version has no equal. I know that you will love it."
