theWord is a Home & Hobby::Religion software developed by LutherSoft. After our trial and test, the software was found to be official, secure and free. Here is the official description for theWord: theWord is an audio Bible, unlike any other you may have used before. Instead of simply being a recording of someone reading the Bible, theWord uses Apple's powerful voice synthesis to "read" the Bible to you. Using it's built in database, theWord can navigate to the exact book, chapter, and verse you want to hear.
Because it uses voice syntheses, instead of recordings, it is a very small download, and does not use excess space on your computer. A traditional audio bible recording can span many CDs.
A traditional audio recording of the bible also makes it difficult to listen to your favorite passages. It is broken up in to tracks based on the chapter. theWord can index the entire bible by verse, so you can pinpoint the passage you want to hear, and create a "bookmark" of that passage. You can store many bookmarks in a playlist called "my bookmarks".
If you have no experience with The Bible, theWord includes many built in playlists with suggested readings, historical highlights, helpful passages. With the built in daily reading calendar, you can listen to the entire bible in one year without any problem. Put it on your iPod, and you could listen to it during your commute, at the gym, or whenever. you can download theWord 1.0 free now.
