The Word of Promise® Audio Bible has won three Audie Awards from The Audio Publishers Association’s (APA) Audies competition. The audio Bible project took home more Audies than any other title when it was crowned the winner for the “Audio Drama,” “Inspirational/Faith-Based Non-Fiction,” and “Package Design” categories. 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.”

Great while it worked

I’d been searching for a NKJV audio Bible without a distracting voice, and this one was the BEST by far!!!

The only thing that would be even more awesome would be if an audio version without the sound effects could be made available. I’d pay for it. The effects often jolt me out of listening to the words. I know others love them though.

Recently it stopped working- it crashes or the screen goes black. I’m upgraded to iOS 11 so I’m not sure what caused it. After paying $20 for the New Testament, I’m pretty bummed, hence the 4 stars. Otherwise it’d be 5 all the way!

Love this audio Bible!

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.

Needs Speed Control

By far, this is my favorite dramatized audio Bible in any version. The reading is excellent and the audio effects are film quality. I’ve read along with the Audible audio for years. But I wish this app had a speed control. The downside of dramatized versions is that they usually read slower than you would read yourself. So I always read along with the text in front of me and the audio on faster speeds.
As soon as this app adds a speed control, I’ll gladly pay for the full version (and raise my rating).
To my knowledge, this is one of very few Bible apps with audio that DOES NOT have a speed control. [Developers, please see the YouVersion app to see how they do the speed control.]
