YouVersion Bible
on Amazon Alexa

First Century Christians treasured the apostles’ letters, hand-copying passages onto scraps of papyrus to share with one another. Today, our smartphones give us hundreds of complete Bibles in our pockets. And those early believers would be astonished to see us speak into the air… and then hear God’s inspired Word read back to us!
