Johnny Cash

Johnny Cash Reads The Bible

The Johnny Cash DVD/CD I won from mental_floss arrived a week or so ago. It's really awesome! The CD is full of gospel music, always a great addition to my collection. I was wondering how the DVD would work and I'm really impressed with how they executed it. It's a regular DVD with a lot of menu items -- each entry in the menu is a different chapter of the New Testament. You can set up the preferences to play a chapter at a time, or a whole book at a time. While Cash is reading, the video on the screen is simply a still image of the text being read. So you can read along on screen while Cash is reading out loud.

Of course, one of the first things I wanted to hear Cash read after playing around with the menus a little was Revelation....
