CHRISTOPHER GLYN trained at the Rose Bruford School of Speech and Drama in the UK . In the forty plus years since, Chris’ inspirational radio shows have been heard on stations all around the world and he has narrated numerous inspirational and motivational audio books, including a highly acclaimed reading of the King James Bible as well as other Christian classics.
THE COMPLETE KING JAMES AUDIO BIBLE
First published in 1611, the King James Bible is the greatest English translation ever produced. English speakers around the world are acclaiming these recent recordings – THE COMPLETE KING JAMES AUDIO BIBLE and THE KINGS JAMES OLD TESTAMENT AUDIO BIBLE by British narrator Christopher Glyn, whose inspirational vocal performance and knowledge of the text make for a rich listening experience, capturing the beauty and power of God’s word.
In Biblical terms, ‘Apocrypha’ is a much-misunderstood term – and the title belies the immense significance of the 14 books to which it refers, all of which were originally published in the 1611 King James Bible but removed in 1885. Most of those books have always been in the Roman Catholic, Greek and other Orthodox Bibles and therefore are accepted as true Scripture by the majority of Christians. So, although the word ‘apocrypha’ literally means ‘things hidden away’, these texts have never ‘officially’ been considered secret.
These books are certainly not as well-known and understood as the canonical Scriptures – and who better to bring to light and new life these lesser-heard Words of God than acclaimed British narrator Christopher Glyn!
Morning and Evening daily devotional
An inspired reading by Christopher Glyn of Charles H. Spurgeon’s classic ‘Morning and Evening’ daily devotional, still dearly loved by millions of Christians worldwide. Includes 365 devotionals, each around three minutes long, with beautiful meditative background instrumentals.”
1st and 2nd Maccabees
The setting of 1st and 2nd Maccabees is about a century and a half after the conquest of Judea by the Greeks under Alexander the Great. It tells how the Greek ruler Antiochus IV Epiphanes attempted to suppress the Jewish religion, resulting in the Maccabean Revolt from 175 to 134 BCE.
Originally included in the King James Bible, 1st and 2nd Maccabees is a thrilling historical account of the guerrilla warfare in which, with God’s help, the Maccabean brothers, Judas, Jonathan and Simon were empowered to win extraordinary victories against vastly superior armies and restore an independent Jewish kingdom and religion.
British narrator, Christopher Glyn, brings these epic stories to life with an inspired and professional reading.
The Book of Enoch
The Book of Enoch was thought to be lost for over 2000 years, until in 1773, a traveller brought three copies back from Ethiopia. Whether or not this ancient book was actually authored by Enoch, the father of Methuselah and great grandfather of Noah, is an ongoing debate amoung historians and theologians. But all recognise the Book of Enoch as one of the most important apocalyptic works outside of the Bible.
This 1917 translation by R. H. Charles is professionally narrated by Christopher Glyn and aims to provide those who are curious to know the contents of this cryptic and mysterious book with an enjoyable way to do so.
The First and Second Books of Adam and Eve
An intriguing supplement to the Book of Genesis, “The First and Second Books of Adam and Eve” remains an ancient text of great interest to modern readers.
We are given intriguing insights into what life was like in the almost 1,600 years leading up to the biblical Great Flood of Noah, and how evil came to dominate the whole Earth due to Satan and the cursed Fallen Angels, who still seek to tempt, corrupt and destroy the world today.
These books bring out the astounding knowledge and dynamic details as to how emotional it was for Adam and Eve — physically and spiritually — to have to leave the Garden of Eden, where they had personal interaction with God the Father, and be thrust out into the physical world due to their disobedience.
When “The First and Second Books of Adam and Eve” were written and by whom remains a mystery. Parts of this ancient book are found in the Talmud, the Koran, and also in the early writings of the Greeks, Syrians, Egyptians, Abyssinians, Hebrews, and other ancient peoples, showing what a vital role it played in ancient wisdom literature.
This audiobook version is read by Christopher Glyn from the English translation by Dr. S.C. Malan, working from the Ethiopic translation of the Arabic original. It was first published in 1882 as part of “The Forgotten Books of Eden”.
The Catholic Audio Bible

These include the deuterocanonical books of Tobit, Judith, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Wisdom (Ecclesiasticus), Sirach, and Baruch and also additions to the books of Esther and Daniel.
These are works recognized by the Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Oriental Orthodox Churches as being part of scripture. Protestants do not regard these as being divinely inspired, but do recognize them as important books to read.
Now all the 77 books of the original King James Bible are included in THE COMPLETE CATHOLIC BIBLE, professionally narrated by Christopher Glyn whose narration of the King James Bible make for a rich listening experience, capturing the beauty and power of God’s word .
The original 1611 King James Bible
Since its first publication in 1611, the King James Version of the Bible, with its flowing language and rhythmic prose, has had a profound influence on the literature of the past 400 years and is the greatest English translation ever produced.
Early in the nineteenth century, however, the British and Foreign Bible Society decided to exclude the 14 books known as “the Apocrypha”.
Today, English Bibles with the Apocrypha are becoming more popular again.
Now for the first time, the original, unexpurgated version of the King James Bible – complete with all of the Apocrypha – is available as an audiobook performed by British narrator Christopher Glyn who has been acclaimed for his many Biblical readings and other classic christian inspirational works.
