The Audie Awards is the only awards program in the United States devoted entirely to honoring spoken word entertainment. “The cast members were well-chosen. The sheer number of actors and the direction and the quality were effective, impressive, well-packaged, well-organized, and well-done. WOW! This is an audiobook people will hear about for a longtime,” noted the Audie Award judges. “The Word of Promise® Audio Bible was a labor of love and I feel truly blessed for it to be honored with three Audie Award awards,” says producer Carl Amari. “Over four years of work and thousands of man hours went into both the creation and promotion of this project and to have The Audio Publishers Association recognize it in this way is a great honor.”



  • Fatal navigation flaw!!! Beware

    By 142tohg9
    App has great potential BUT.... I purchased the New King James study bible. Lots of helpful resources...HOWEVER there is a major problem with toggling between bible text and app resources such as : bible book introductions book outlines Indexes by topic Concordance Subject index Once a resources is accessed and you click on any bible verse link provided you are taken off the page you are on and to the Bible text. You must then navigate your way back to the resource and scroll down to find where you were reading. NO BACK BOTTON PROVIDED. Very disruptive to any line of thinking and study. The resources mentioned above are rich with many bible verses so being taken to the verse with no way to quickly ( back button) return to where you were reading is defeating the purpose of linking the two thoughts together as one . It can be done if you hold your thought , read the associated verse, navigate back to the page ,scroll down to try to find where you were reading and then remember what the verse said to apply it in context. And repeat the process many times due to the great volume of verses supplied... even multiple verse links in one sentence. This procedure defeats the ease of use this app should provide to help accomplish its purpose. If you have not purchased this app hopefully ( not sure if possible with nkj study bible ) you can get a sample ( I think the book or a chapter from John) to try out the resources I mentioned to see for yourself why a back button is critical. There is a “tree” feature which is excellent and splits the page so you can see both the Bible text and the selected resource AT THE SAME TIME. But there are limited resources to choose from while using the tree and none of those mentioned above. Why all the resources are not available on the tree feature I don’t know. I contacted customer service and they said that the developers were aware of the problem but did not mention if or when a fix update would be released. I will submit an updated review with a much higher rating. When a back button or ALL RESOURCES are added to the tree feature.

  • Can’t love without my Bible app

    By Anna the cummuter
    The app will draw you deeper into the Word of God. It will open your eyes the the ENTIRE story of who God is and his character. Please buy it. I bought it and listened to the entire Bible. Genesis to Revelations. Wow I learned so much. You must set a time daily for Gods Word so you don’t get lazy. I commute 1 hour so that was my audio Bible time in my car via Bluetooth. You can also listen off your phone with ear headphones. Excellent Excellent! God will open your eyes and ears in a new way you never thought before.
  • Great way to receive the Word

  • Best Audio Bible I have used thus far

    By JoshBibleReader
    I listen to the Bible while I commute to work or on the weekends at home. It’s very dynamic and fun to listen to the Bible and it almost feels like watching a movie.
  • Awesome app but....

    By cmcfi
    Is a great app! I have enjoyed it for several years now. However, in the last month or two, it has this glitch that whenever I open the app the audio automatically starts playing whatever passage I was reading last. This can be very disruptive as this is happened during a church service two weeks ago!! This needs to be fixed so that it plays only when I hit the play button.

  • Paid app now features Ads

    By DoeJoe
    So now they have heavily monetized this app with Ads. A paid for app should never have ads. Thanks for the horrible update.
  • Love this audio Bible!

    By Historylovr
    Downloaded this recently and I listen to it as I clean my house, just listen for pleasure, do my Bible studies and listened as I fell asleep last night. I enjoy the different actor’s voices as they read the Bible and the music/sound effects enhance the text rather than distract imo; however it is a good idea to listen to the free download of John before buying because some reviewers found the music/sound effects did bother them. Besides the superb audio readings the app has many study tools similar to those on my Olive Tree Bible Study app. I purchased this app (both OT and NT) just for the audio, but the other features make it a great value for the money. Many thanks to the people who developed this audio app of God’s is truly a blessing to me.

    I love this Bible app! The actors reading scripture, the music and the sound effects are excellent! I like to read along with my Bible (you can also read along with the moving phone screen text! When I put my headphones on, it is like I am transported to the world of the Bible! Highly recommended!
