About this app

The opening of a magnificent Bible drama! "Listening Drama Bible" is Japan's first full-scale drama-style Bible app.
■ Feel free to listen to the world's best-selling Bible at any time.
■ Famous actors and voice actors such as Shinya Ohwada, Eiji Okuda, and Yoshio Inoue will appear.
■ In order to draw the world of the Bible more realistically, more than 150 actors and voice actors play a total of more than 1,300 casts.
■ You will be drawn into the world of the Bible with realistic BGM and sound effects.
■ We have adopted the Bible of "New Revised 2017", which expresses conversations lively.
■ We faithfully reproduce the words of the Bible word for word.
■ Includes a listening plan that is useful when listening continuously.
■ In the listening plan, an explanatory video of each volume of the "Bible Project" is inserted.
■ You can stream, download, and use it as you like.

Awesome and free! I'm totally blown away by this app. I've been looking for a Japanese Bible app and this is the best. It's based on the modern translation Shinkaiyaku, which is easy to read, it's has furigana for Japanese Kanji, and is dramatic. I would highly recommend this to friends! Best also for us who are learning the Japanese language. On top of that, it's free!

This has to be the best app out there. The best Japanese translation, print and audio, high quality production on all fronts from what I've seen so far, and totally free with no ads, even though the いのちのことば会社 app is $28 and a print copy runs from $50 minimum, and a cd audio Bible is some $200 if I remember correctly.

Amazing! The amount of work that must've gone into this is huge, and it's free with no ads! I'm dabbling with learning the language so this is a really cool tool to help with that.
