Poirot Reads the Bible

"“I am Hercule Poirot, yes madam. . .”

Hercule Poirot, the fictional detective created by Agatha Christie, played masterfully by David Suchet for over 25 years and nearly 70 British TV episodes.

But did you know? It was David Suchet’s dream to record the entire Bible—something he called a “27-year ambition.”

“For many, many years I felt that I wanted to put my voice to the Bible—not only bits of the Bible, but the whole thing!”

Released in 2014, it took 200 hours to record!
When asked why such a monumental task, David Suchet said: It goes back to “early school days when I loved reading the Bible. . .it formed my way of looking at the world!”

Read the Bible—this important Book of all Books!"
