'The Gospel of Matthew': Derek Jacobi reads St Matthew's account of the life and teachings of Jesus. Specially composed music is included.

'The New Testament': These abridged readings of the New Testament are taken from the 1989 Revised English Bible, which was translated directly from the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek into modern English to produce a Bible that was at once accessible and authoritative.
