Fall in love with listening to the most important book in history: the Bible.

Dwell has been called "the Spotify of Scripture" because of how easy (and delightful!) we've made it to explore the Bible. Browse popular passages or curated playlists that include select verses by theme. Use our Listening Plans to help you cultivate a habit of seeking God in Scripture every day. Or take the traditional approach: pick your favorite book and dive in!

Connect with scripture through 4 brand new recordings of the Bible, each showcasing a unique and inspiring voice. And with intimate background music exclusively composed for Scripture listening by Steinway Artist Chad Lawson, you'll be drawn into every story like never before.

Dwell is unique in that you can switch voices and background music on-the-fly without losing your place in the audio. Plus, every book, story, playlist, and plan is accompanied by beautiful artwork.

Absolute Wow!

I’m impressed with this app so far.
I like the voices. I love the pace. I always found other narrated bibles too quick. I’m the kind of reader who isn’t in a rush as I read. I like to be at a pace to really think it over as I go. I also really like the music options, and all the various plans and arrangements to listen through. I’ve listened to audio Bibles my whole life, and this is a fresh approach to it.

One thing would be neat, if I could download everything, rather than stream.
I don’t have a lot of data, and I have no home internet. If I were able to download, it’d make it better. $43-ish for a year in Australia is fine with me, and I expect it will bring continued support and updates for this superb app. I will be listening to this as much as I can! Dependant on my data allowance that is. Good job Dwell App!

I’m surprised how much I like the Dwell app. It has quickly become part of my daily life. From listening to stories in the car with my kids, playlists as I hang the washing and psalms in quiet moments. I love getting to listen to different voices, the music in the background isn’t intrusive and I’m surprised how much I appreciate the “topic” playlists (eg all Jesus parables) when I typically just take a book at a time.
My only surprise is that there’s no timer to automatically switch off - although there very well could be this feature and I’m not observant enough!!

Beautiful Listening Experience

This is a gorgeous app for listening to the Bible. The choice of readers voices is a big plus, sensitive music in the background, well planned playlists, and an app that moves seamlessly through each plan; it really is something special. I hesitated purchasing the full subscription but after listening to it for a while decided it was well worth it. I don’t think I’ve heard anything quite like it before, congratulations to the developers of Dwell.
