Visitors to YouVersion.com can read the Bible in different versions and languages, add comments or insights, bookmark favorite verses, and even create an online Bible journal. The addition of Faith Comes By Hearing‘s streaming Audio Bible now allows visitors to listen to the Word of God.

“We’re thrilled about partnering with Faith Comes By Hearing to offer Audio Bibles in more than 380 languages on YouVersion.com,” said Bobby Gruenewald, LifeChurch.tv Pastor, Innovation Leader.

“Now, anyone around the globe with access to a computer and an Internet connection will be able to listen to God’s Word,” said Gruenewald. “By making these Audio Bibles available for free, we hope to remove many of the economic and cultural obstacles that can stand in the way of people experiencing Scripture.”

“Faith Comes By Hearing’s Audio Bibles are dramatized word-for-word Scripture recordings complete with sound effects and music,” said Troy Carl, Faith Comes By Hearing’s national director. “People can listen to the Word of God while reading along or discussing with others through the free online Bible at YouVersion.com.”
