No Pulp Fiction here

Zondervan, the massive Christian publishing company located in Grand Rapids, Mich., is planning to release a celebrity-stocked audio version of the New Testament this October. The voice of God: Samuel L. Jackson.

The "Snakes on a Plane" star is one of more than 100 celebrities lending their voices to the audio Bible, called "Inspired by ... the Bible Experience." Others lending their voices to the project include Denzel Washington, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Angela Bassett and Forest Whitaker.

They'll use the more contemporary TNIV translation of the Bible -- the copyright to which is owned by Colorado Springs-based International Bible Society.
