Updated Bible App for Voice: More to try on your Amazon devices.

We live in an amazing time!

First Century Christians treasured the apostles’ letters, hand-copying passages onto scraps of papyrus to share with one another. Today, our smartphones give us hundreds of complete Bibles in our pockets. And those early believers would be astonished to see us speak into the air… and then hear God’s inspired Word read back to us!

Our latest update to the Bible App for Voice makes it more amazing than ever. If you’ve already enabled Bible on your Amazon devices, then you can immediately start trying everything you see below. But if you haven’t, just tap this button (or use your Amazon Alexa App to enable the Bible Skill).
