Share the Christmas Story from the Gospels via video from Bible App

Reading from the Gospels is the best way to share the Story of Christmas with your family because you’re reading straight from the Word of God. But sometimes the text is difficult to follow. Or perhaps we don’t know where the precise texts are located. The Bible App solves that conundrum by offering in its app beautifully-produced dramatic cinematography covering the relevant chapters in Luke and Matthew. Watch five short videos and you’ve got the entire Christmas story from the Annunciation to the visit by the Wise Men read to you in beautiful narration with gorgeous filming of the events played out on your mobile device or computer. And it’s free! Now, THAT’S a great Christmas gift!

Bible App (Free) iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Windows 8, Kindle Fire, Symbian, Java, HP/Palm. What else do you get with this app? Developers, say this is the #1 Bible app in the world. That may be true given the hundreds of Bibles available for you to  choose from in more than 1,000 languages. Some of the Bibles are approved Catholic versions like NAB-RE and Douay Rheims. Internet connection needed to use most content in this app, but some Bibles are imbedded in the app so you can read them off line. Unfortunately, none of the imbedded bibles in English are Catholic editions. Audio Bibles are available but not downloadable. These include Douay Rheims. Study tools include reading plans, search capability, note taking, highlighting and bookmarking capability.

Text can be sized for easier reading. Your bookmarks, highlights and notes are saved on YouVersion.com which you must log into to use. But this gives you cross-platform use wherever you go with whatever relevant device you use to access the Bible you are in the midst of reading.
