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. This also allows us to offer this software to you for FREE.
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.
