We’re pleased to announce two new audio versions of the Bible, available in the Bible App™ right now. Try the New Testament of the popular Reina-Valera 1960 (RVR60) in Spanish, or the modern Chinese New Version (CNV and CNVS) in Mandarin.
Because it’s such a popular translation among Spanish-speaking Christians worldwide, we’re very excited to offer a New Testament audio version of the 1960 update of the Reina-Valera. The Chinese New Version of the Bible is a similar story. First available in 1992, the CNVS and CNV have grown in popularity ever since, particularly among readers seeking a more modern translation in common, “everyday” language.
If you haven’t experienced an audio Bible in your heart language yet, we’d encourage you to explore the versions list in the Bible App. Just look for the speaker icon for audio versions you can listen to as you commute, work, or exercise.*
*Audio Bibles use streaming audio, so be aware of your service provider’s data restrictions. For the best audio Bible experience, we recommend a Wi-Fi connection.
