Best known as the moustached eponymous hero of Agatha Christie’s Poirot, David Suchet has now bade farewell to the iconic role and fulfilled a “27 year ambition” to make an audio recording of the entire NIV Bible.
To be released this Thursday, it marks the result of over 200 hours in the recording studio while filming the final series of his hit detective TV series, which ran for an astonishing 25 years. Though he speaks in his usual British accent, rather than the dulcet tones of his fictional Belgian counterpart, Suchet’s velvet-smooth voice nonetheless carries a melody befitting the greatest story ever told.
It’s arguably his most personal project yet. After becoming a Christian while reading Romans 8 in a hotel Bible in 1986, Suchet quickly realised that he could use his talents to share his newfound faith.
