lookingupCentral OregonAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great item!January 10, 2014lookingupCentral OregonAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I got this for my husband for Christmas. He has always had a lot of difficulty reading (68yrs now). We've had Bible on Cassette tapes, CD's, DVD's, all have been helpful but this is the first format that he can navigate easily to get anywhere in the Bible. It has a Read in a year plan, and other background Bible stories and info so there is more than just the Scriptures on it. It wasn't 'cheap' but the investment in getting God's Word in his heart was worth every penny. It's small and portable, easy to use, he can hook it up to little speakers if we both want to listen to something.

She had been asking for a GoBible for a long time and this year I finally got one for her. I asked her if she liked it as well as she thought she would, and she said yes. She seems to be very happy with it. She said that now she can listen to the Word of God while she is at work.

It just feels like a "Dinosaur " device. In this modern techno world, who really wants to keep buying batteries for anything. I should have chosen a device that the power could be recharged. Oh well.
KimSKilauea, HI5 Stars Out Of 5GoBibleJanuary 9, 2012KimSKilauea, HIQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I bought GoBible for my husband for Christmas. He works long hours and doesn't have much time to sit and read. He listens to Christian radio all the time, so GoBible is the perfect fit for him. It is easy to use, small enough that it doesn't get in his way while working, driving, etc and he loves it. The features allow him to bookmark right where he left off and begin again the following day. I was telling a friend about it the other day and her husband was listening. He said that would be something that he would like too and asked where I got it. I told them Christianbooks.com.
Q: Does the GoBible player resume from where it was shut off? If you are listening to the bible and turn it off, when you turn it on again, does it begin where it was when it was shut off?
No, it does not save where you leave off automatically. When it turns on it brings up the main menu. A bookmark feature is provided so you can save your place.
Q: Does this allow me to repeat a verse, or chapter if I am trying to memorize it? I am trying to memorize Matthew Chapter 5. Let's saying I'm laying down in bed and trying to fall asleep. If I put this on, is there a way for it to continue repeating Chapter 5?
No, there is not a repeat option on this player.
Q: Is it possible to connect the GoBible to an MP3 external speaker?
This has a jack that will receive both headphones and speakers. You just need to have the correct hardware to make it work. It is intended to be used with ear buds or a headset, so the experience may vary depending on the device you use.
Q: Is this the dramatized version of Charles Taylor?
No, this is the voice-only version.
Q: What does it mean to not have a recharagable battery? One of the few differences between the Original and Voyager models is the rechareable battery, which the Original does not have. So does this mean once the battery runs out on the orignal model it is no longer any good, or does it mean you can then only listen to it if it is plugged in to an outlet?
The GoBible Original uses a standard AAA battery. This battery must be replaced once it dies. The Voyager has a rechargeable battery, which can be plugged into a wall outlet for recharging, so replacement is not necessary.
Q: will it turn off automatically? This is about the GoBible. Is it set up by chapters, books, etc. in playlists? Would it work to listen to when going to sleep, and yet not keep on playing all night long? I think this would be perfect for my mom who loves the Word, but also has trouble sleeping. She could listen herself to sleep. What better material to rest by? Thanks!
If you are in one of the specialty modes, such as "Story Index" or "Bible in a Year" the device will return to the main menu, after the selection is played, and shut off after 5 minutes if there is no further activity. For general listening, the device will play through to the end of the Testament.
