Great dramatized audio bible!


I just loaded onto my iPad and I am so very impressed with the way this app functions, the quality of the audio is great and the actual presentation of the audio is absolutely stunning. I cannot recommend this app more highly.
I listened to John 9 and it brought tears to my eyes.
I’m going to tell everyone that I know about this great way to experience the Impeccable Word Of God! Check it for yourself; I bet you’ll agree.

Works well like the features


Lots of features to organize and track progress. My top 3 likes: 1 Theatrical reading keeps me engaged. 2. Playlist that you can select from like bible in a year, 30 day challenge etc. 3. Download playlist or chapters to take with you on the go.

$50 not $20 for Full Version


There are nice instruments, good narration, and the flow of the app is excellent. Even for $50 it would be worth it.

I gave low stars to quickly attract the attention of the app developers so the previously mentioned problem may be fixed.

It will change to five stars once the pricing information is fixed.
