“The Truth & Life Dramatized audio Bible is entirely faithful to the text of the Holy Scriptures. The manner in which the text is performed, beautifully assists the listener in understanding the meaning of the divinely inspired words within their context. The background music and sound effects help the listener to imagine the setting of each particular text of the Holy Bible. I am happy to give my wholehearted endorsement to the audio New Testament.”

Not your ordinary Bible App. It’s a Life saver.

I can’t begin to thank you what a blessing this has been in my life. There is so much content to unpack here for any devout Catholic to learn scripture and the teachings of the church. It has Study guides, St. Ignatius notes, references to specific sections in the Catechism, Topical Essays, you can save and share favorite quotes with ease. But the notes have been the most helpful. I frequently utilize them and go to the CCC section it mentions. This Bible app is especially perfect for Catholic Bible studies and Catholic High school and College students. Keep up the good work. God bless.

Audio Old Testament Please

I love this Catholic Bible app. I would give it 5 stars if it had audio for the Old Testament, but awesome app still. Hopefully, an audio Old Testament will come out soon. I’m most unfamiliar with the Old Testament and i find it more difficult to just open up and read the Old Testament. However, i really want to hear and know the stories at the same time. I feel like if there was audio for it, it would help a lot, even if it is not dramatized. That way I can just easily play and hear the stories in the background.

I also just don't want to have to download a non-Catholic Bible app just to hear the Old Testament in audio which would take up extra space on my phone 😄 But, I love the app so far!

Life Changing

I use this app all the time for apologetics. The highlighting, notes, and quick reference are wonderful for those of us who do not have books and chapters memorized. The only issue, that I have had in the past, is that if your phone crashes, or you get a new one, you lose all your saved notes, highlights, etc. Hopefully this has been fixed. I highly recommend this app for everybody who wants to learn Scripture and use it when challenged someone who does not understand our beautiful faith.
