3934 Surprise by Alberich

This was a neat Listener puzzle. With a single theme and sound clues it was fairly straightforward, once the modification was known. The initial letters of the extra words, in clue order, gave "A turn-up for the books", which explained the title. It was then a case of inverting the abbreviations of Biblical books in down entries. The primary reference gives a useful list of these. Jumbling the across entries was made slightly easier since multiple unches had to be the same letters.

Extra words in across clues are shown by square brackets.
