Voxbiblia Releases User-Generated Bible Albums
Swedish Voxbiblia.com today has today released the option for users themselves to construct their own Bible albums, effectively giving them a peer recommendation system for Bible passages.
The new service lets people easily construct their own Bible albums based on Voxbiblia’s repository of over 3,000 Bible passages. Thereby it is possible to put together thematic selections from the Bible, for instance based on specific situations in which the Bible has helped you, comment the selction and add pictures to the album. Once you are finished and chooses to publish the album, it becomes immediately available online for other to listen to or download.
- The Bible has so much to say in the situations of life, but it is so hard to find the relevant passages. We all need help with this, says Johan Jorgensen, founder and CEO of Voxbiblia.com.
In Acts (8:26-40), we meet Philip who teaches the Ethiopian eunuch who to read Isaiah. In fact, we all need someone to teach us what the Bible says. No-one can claim to know what the Bible has to say in all situations, but together we can.
Initially there are a total of approximately 200 Bible albums available on Voxbiblia.com – a number that is constantly growing. The albums are available for download or through streaming audio, and the whole Bible also comes in the form of a download archive, as mp3 files on DVD, CD or pre-loaded onto an iPod Nano.
An access to Voxbiblia.com’s download archive (valid for one year) costs $29 for the New International Version and $49 for the Today’s New International Version. It includes downloads of all the albums and the whole Bible both in the traditional form of books and chapters as well as the approximately 3,000 passages. Individual albums are $3 a piece.

Voxbiblia.com aims at a disruptive modernization of how the Bible is brought to the masses. The idea is to make it easier for modern people to access one of the most important pieces of text ever written, and, hence, to further expand their understanding of our world and their own role as human beings. By helping people to access the Bible more easily, Voxbiblia.com hopes to not only show how useful and interesting the Bible can be, but also how easy it can be to start digging into the material. There should be no reasons for religious illiteracy to continue to spread.
The release of the Bible in the form of thematic albums represents the perhaps most significant new navigational system of the Bible since Robert Stephens (Robert I Estienne) added the verses to the Bible in 1551. For audio this new system is essential, since it is impossible to find passages by fast-forwarding through 100 hours of recorded material.
Voxbiblia.com’s mission is to give to as large an audience as possible an easy-to-use means of accessing the Bible. Voxbiblia.com is not affiliated with any church or other religious organization. Its sole purpose is to make the Scriptures available in a user friendly way.
Currently Voxbiblia offers three complete recordings of the Bible in English: the New International Version, the Today’s New International Version and the Authorized (King James) Version. In Swedish the recent translation Bible 2000 is offered. The recordings are sold as MP3 downloads, or thematic play-lists, pre-loaded on iPods, and as MP3-files on DVD or CD. You can also listen to the whole Bible through streaming audio, More Bible translations are currently being processed for future launch.
