Last year, I had the pleasure of reviewing the GoBible Traveler. This holiday season, I’m happy to announce the launch of an even more impactful version, the Original GoBible® Catholic Edition. GoBible is a great solution for folks in your life who may not have access to smartphones or tablets. But it’s also great for those of us who desire a device that is solely dedicated to helping us grow spiritually. I love my GoBible for the fact that when I use the device, I’m not tempted to click away to check email. I also think it’s incredible that the GoBible team is able to pack so much content into one simple device. The Catholic Edition includes:
- Entire Bible for Catholics
- Over 80 hours of audio, preloaded
- Searchable by verse
- Story index of 230 popular Bible stories
- Topic index
- Holiday/events index
- Narrated Rosary and common prayers
- Daily readings by year and cycle
- Voice menu for sight impaired

Original GoBible® Catholic Edition
ATLANTA, Nov. 7, 2013 – The Word of God has never been more accessible than it is today. With a largely literate society, the explosion of the Internet and the variety of devices to let you access the Web, there’s no reason not to read Scripture. But for some Catholics, actually reading Scripture can present some challenges.
GoBible is a digital audio device about the size of deck of cards that can be tucked anywhere – purse, backpack, even a diaper bag or medical pouch. The device will be particularly useful to ministries to the disabled, particularly the sight-impaired, and to the elderly, who may find reading the Bible difficult because of illness or physical challenge.
GoBible gives Catholics the chance to take the Bible with them almost anywhere, and to be able to follow by audio each day’s readings. The Catholic version has the imprimatur of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops and is narrated by Emmy Award-winner Stephen Johnston. In addition to the over 80 hours of audio, it is searchable by verse and indexed based on 230 popular Bible stories. Catholics can access the daily readings by both year and cycle.
Each GoBible comes with a cache of 36 bookmarks, so that you can mark your favorite Bible verse or note where you left off in your listening. There is an index for approximately 30 different emotions and circumstances and another index of over a dozen key days and moments. There’s also a voice menu that makes GoBible an easily used hands-free device.
The Catholic GoBible also features a narrated rosary and common prayers, including the Apostles Creed, Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, and Act of Contrition.
A simpler version of the unit was released last year and sold several thousand copies to date. This expanded version is expected to be a best seller.
