Bible.is Says ‘Bienvenido’ to Hispanic Christians

bibleonshelfcroppedFollowing the smashing success of its audio-based Bible app in English, Faith Comes By Hearing has rolled out a Spanish version. Now, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users—as well as Android consumers—can listen to the Bible in Spanish.

Like the English app, the Spanish version allows users to read, listen and share the Bible from mobile devices. The social media connection empowers friends and family from across the country, or around the world, to engage in God’s Word together.

“Listeners will still have access to the many other languages offered on the app, but this version opens the door and welcomes millions of Spanish speakers who may have never found us because they don’t speak or read English,” says Troy Carl, national director of Faith Comes By Hearing.

Via Bible.is, listeners can enjoy Scripture in a dramatized audio format in more than 90 languages. The app is available in Arabic, Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese, French, Indonesian and Japanese, as well as less common languages like Koonzime, spoken in regions of Cameroon by roughly 30,000 people, and Cacua, spoken in parts of Colombia by fewer than 500.

Faith Comes By Hearing says it’s committed to providing the poor and illiterate people of the world with God’s Word in audio, and in their own language. Spanish localization is another step forward in the ministry’s efforts to accomplish this goal. Localization of the free Bible.is app into other major languages is currently under development. Faith Comes By Hearing currently has Audio Bible recordings in 500 languages, spoken by 5 billion people, with the goal of reaching 2,000 by 2016.

“Recording Scripture in a people’s heart language is only beneficial to them if they can access and use it to engage in God’s Word,” argues Carl. “As a part of the work to fulfill the Great Commission, we will continue to provide that access until all have heard.”
