The NRSV: Audio Bible for Everyone contains a superb new audio version by John Banks, specially commissioned by SPCK from Ladbroke Audio, bringing the NRSV to life as never before.
This new app, offering fantastic value, seamlessly integrates the audio with the text, and includes the option to add access to the For Everyone series of commentaries and Bible studies written by Tom Wright and John Goldingay, via monthly or yearly in-app subscription.

The subscription options are 1 month or 12 months in duration. If you choose to subscribe, you will be charged a subscription fee according to your country. The subscription fee will be shown in the app before you complete the payment.

Ratings and Reviews
Difficult to rate! Felt compelled to drop a star...
I’ve had trouble rating this because tho I like many of the features and appreciate the free audio, I am frustrated by Aimer Media’s insistence for constant subscriptions.
I decided to give four stars for the usability such as: multi coloured highlighting, note keeping, font sizing, syncing, free audio, copying and sharing; and appreciate the popular & accurate NRSV translation. I use several Apps by this Company and enjoy them immensely and customer support is always very good, as are the reliable and consistent updates. However, the many subscriptions are becoming a little tedious to manage. Hence the reason I dropped a star. I prefer to pay a one-off price for each of my Study Aids and would like to be offered a choice of some of the older, more classic Commentaries?!
Pleased you like the app - sorry that the approach to subscriptions is an issue. We are trying out the best way to keep these projects going for a long time and this does seem the best way.
Superb value for money!
The complete NRSV Audio bible with full audio for £0.99 has to be one of the best value modern English audio apps available. The reading is very clear and at s nice tempo. Suggestions for improvement would be to allow audio to play when iPhone screen is off for Bluetooth listening. Update: The developers have done this and it does now play with the screen off. Excellent responsiveness to feedback! Also would be nice to have the verse being read aloud highlighted as it goes. I am delighted with this app for the price.
We have now updated the app to allow the audio to play in the background. We will look at verse highlighting as soon as we can.
We will be looking into highlighting soon.
Audio is not like the Churches Live Lent Course
I bought the app so that I could use the audio version. It’s good if you would like me app to audio read the bible to you as it does in chapter or verse singular version.
However in a church for old, New Testaments and Gospels it’s selected for example Genesis 12 verses 9-12. Unfortunately this app does not allow you to do this, audio read.
It would be great if the app could be improved to read sections like the Church of England have used in their Live Lent Course.
Thanks for the feedback. We will look into how we might implement this idea.
