Lighthouse Catholic Media is one of the foremost Catholic content creators out there.  You probably know them from their CD’s that are available at most Catholic parishes which feature talks from world-renown speakers like Dr. Scott Hahn, Jeff Cavins, & Fr. Robert Baron.  Now, imagine having access to this type content on your smart phone!  With this app, not only do you get the complete Revised Standard Version (Catholic edition) of the Bible – with audio!* – you also get access to all this content within the same app!  Take it up another notch and you get access to over 12 hours of free biblical commentary from Dr. Scott Hahn & the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology.  With a FREE price tag, there’s no reason NOT to get this app.  *App comes with Bible audio for the Gospel of John.  To purchase the entire New Testament audio the cost is $20
Cons:

To be honest, there’s not much to worry about with this app.  However, if you like to underline, highlight, or in any way mark up your Bible as your reading – I haven’t quite figured that out on this app yet.  Also, depending on your reading preferences, the dramatization of Scriptures via the audio may or may not be to your liking – but that’s personal preference.

Must have app!  This app is great for anyone who wants to consume massive amount of Catholic content – including a Catholic Bible which can be hard to come by in the app store.  When you get it, make sure to enter Promo Code: 102318 to download some MORE free content including the talk “True Worship” by Fr. Michael Schmitz

“The Truth & Life Dramatized audio Bible is entirely faithful to the text of the Holy Scriptures. The manner in which the text is performed, beautifully assists the listener in understanding the meaning of the divinely inspired words within their context. The background music and sound effects helps the listener to imagine the setting of each particular text of the Holy Bible. I am happy to give my wholehearted endorsement to the audio New Testament.”

–The Most Reverend Raymond L. Burke, Perfect of the Apostolic Signature of the Holy See

“We learn by hearing as well as reading. Those who desire to become true disciples of Jesus will want to learn from His words in every way. For anyone interested in beginning or continuing their adventure of faith, I highly recommend this faithful and powerful presentation of the Word of God.”

–The Most Reverend Charles Chaput, Archbishop of Denver

  2. I'd give it less glowing report. For starters the Bible page needs to open up with all the books of the bible. It opened to John and then somehow it was then on some chapter in Luke. There was no obvious button for all of the books of the Bible.

    Now I am on the "Audio Bible" and there is no way to get to the free audio of the Gospel of John, much less a button to download the whole thing if I wanted. It's not immediately obvious that there is more if you scroll down.

    I have an iphone 4s and I review apps to share with our parish. I'm not quite comfortable sharing this with the parish until some of those glitches are fixed. I don't want them to be as frustrated as I was!

    • When you first download the app it *immediately* opens with a prompt to press the gear icon and select Help if you need help navigating.

      The app automatically comes with the free audio of John. When you're in the book of John just press the "play" button at the bottom of the screen to hear that audio.

      The Bible page will open to where you last left off reading. To see all the book of the Bible just tap the name of the book that's open and the contents page pops up. (This and more explained nicely at Help > Getting Started.)

  3. This app is not user friendly.As as soon as i download, and opened this app, it automatically lead me to the luke chapter.There is no sepcific button system for navigation.But still the 12 hours of free biblical commentary from Dr. Scott Hahn & the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology was since it was an audio

  4. Great App!!!

  5. Although the app is not intuitive it takesjust a few minutes to tap around the screen and see all the wonderful features like easy navagation to books and verse. The introduction and study information is interesting and not availble on other free apps. Give it a little time and this may be one of the best Catholic bible apps. Thanks!
