Within days of learning that The Word of Promise Audio Bible can now be heard online for free, we find that the www.Bible.is website has also been redesigned to allow simultaneous listening and reading of Scripture for free.
Here is a list of noteworthy features at the newly updated Bible.is website (along with screenshots):
The new Bible.is site sports dozens of Bible translations in numerous languages. Some of the versions are dramatized, which is an added bonus. There are currently three English translations offered:
- English Standard Version (ESV)
- King James Version (KJV)
- New Revised Standard (NRS)
Indications are that more versions and languages will be added as time goes on.
Various Ways to Locate Passages
The Search field allows you to locate Bible passages based on key words (such as mercy seat), which is extraordinarily useful. To locate a specific book or chapter of the Bible, you can click the Passage Lookup button that appears to the left of the current location, or you can click the Next button to the right of the current location.
Control Text Size
You can choose from six different font sizes for the on-screen text, which is quite useful if you have difficulty reading small text on a computer monitor.
Useful Player Controls
The audio player includes a play / pause button, a seekbar for skipping ahead or rewinding, a timer, and a volume controller.
In addition to the newly redesigned website, Bible.is also offers free iPad / iPhone and Android apps for hearing and reading Scripture on-the-go.
