NEW YORK—April 20, 2011—GoBible today announced that its Original GoBible and GoBible Voyager digital audio Bibles now are available with The Word of Promise – a dramatic narration of the New King James Version of the scriptures by top Hollywood stars including: Academy Award winners Marisa Tomei, Richard Dreyfuss, Louis Gossett Jr., and Marcia Gay Hardin; well-known names such as Gary Sinise, Jason Alexander, and Michael York; and Christian music stars Rebecca St. James and Michael W. Smith.
The Word of Promise is an engaging, scripted reading of the Bible, backed by a stirring musical score. And now, the full version of the recording from Genesis to Revelation is available on the portable, easy-to-use Original GoBible and GoBible Voyager models, which feature the ability to search the scriptures and begin play at the verse level.
“With the GoBible Word of Promise version, we combine GoBible’s unique technology with a unique narration of the scriptures to create a special product,” said Andrew Block, president of The GoBible LLC.
The Word of Promise – which features the talents of over 600 actors – was launched in 2009, and produced with state of the art audio technology in the narration, scoring, and sound effects creating a “you are there” listening experience. Combined with GoBible’s Original and Voyager digital audio players, listeners now have unprecedented access to an engaging, entertaining version of God’s word.
“We’re very glad to partner with GoBible to make The Word of Promise audio Bible available in even more formats,” said Gary Davidson, senior vice president and group publisher for Thomas Nelson’s Bible Group. “It is an outstanding project that has touched a lot of lives, and this partnership will help get it into the hands of even more people.”
