The Christian power-house publisher Zondervan, together with Media Group, has plans to release a star-studded audio-version of the New Testament with Samuel L. Jackson playing the voice of God, and Forest Whitaker as Moses–to name just a few Hollywood luminaries showing up on their voice-roster. Also included are: Angela Bassett, Blair Underwood, and Oscar-winning actors Denzel Washington and Cuba Gooding, Jr.

In a recent press release, Zondervan explained the motivations behind such a grand endeavor:

“Inspired By Media Group, producers of the project, selected the TNIV (Today’s New International Version of the New Testament by Zondervan) version based on its superior combination of accuracy and readability. The goal of utilizing the TNIV is to increase the audio Bible’s reach to the 18-to-34 demographic while simultaneously creating a product that will appeal to the mature consumer.”

The All-Star Bible is due to release some time during this October.
