Free Audio Bible

Rebekyah Brewer

ENGESVC2DAIf anyone is looking for a free audio bible this website offers free downloadable ones available in the ESV, KJV, CEV, NRS versions.  It offers the entire bible or just the New or Old testaments and either in dramatized or non-dramatized editions.

This website offers free audiobooks in the public domain that you can listen to online or download and transfer to your favorite listening device.  I was wary of the sound and voice quality but I found it surprisingly amazing. A great voice, a slow reading pace and good technical sound quality are essential for a good audiobook in my opinion and I found many of the audiobooks on this free website met all three and surpassed my expectations.
