The Original GoBible is a hand-held, portable device preloaded with the entire audio version of the Christian Bible. The Original GoBible does not interact with a PC; all of its content, over 70 hours of audio, has been downloaded onto the device. This is an audio device only. The Original GoBible’s interactive on-screen menu allows the user to easily scroll through the Old and New Testaments and select the book, chapter, and verse which the user wants to begin play at.
The user may also, for convenience, scroll through a Story Index of 200 of the most popular Bible stories. Additionally, the user has the option of following the Original GoBible’s “Bible-in-a-Year” plan for listening to the entire Bible in 365 days. The Original GoBible provides a “Topic Index” that allows a user to find specific scripture passages of particular spiritual relevance to almost thirty relevant topics. Lastly, the Original GoBible can support up to 24 Bookmarks so the user can mark their favorite passages or where they left off listening. Presently, The Original GoBible is offered with either the New International Version (NIV) narrated by Max McLean, the King James Version as read by Alexander Scourby or the New King James Version narrated by Stephen Johnston.
The GoBible is PORTABLE-small enough to fit in the palm of your hand or in a shirt pocket-and VERSATILE, making it easy to schedule the Word of God into the busiest of days!
What makes the Original GoBible device unique is that no other audio version of the Bible anywhere takes the audio down to the verse level. All current recordings of the Bible break down the listening option to the chapter level. We understand that people talk about, think about and study the Bible at the verse level. Therefore, we have cut the audio to the verse level and indexed it so you may search for and begin play at any verse point in the Bible. This has never been done before with the audio version of the Bible and the Original GoBible is the only device in the world with this feature!
The Original GoBible is operated with one AAA battery that can operate the device for more than 24 hours. The Original GoBible is approximately 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches by .5 inch. The screen size measures 2.4 inches in diameter. It weighs approximately 3.2 ounces. The box comes with an Original GoBible device, headphones, a carrying case, a belt clip and a battery. The Original GoBible may also be played through two accessories; a set of portable speakers or an FM transmitter that allows audio to play through a car stereo; both may be purchased on the GoBible website. The Original GoBible retails for $99.95.

One frame from a spool of 8mm film catches a hand holding a gun (pic above in white circle) rising above the crowd and aiming at Pope John Paul II as he rides through St. Peter’s Square. An instant later, the pontiff was shot.
On May 13, 1981: A young Turk, Mehmet Alì Agca, shot the pope in the abdomen and hand while he circles St. Peter’s Square. The pope is hospitalized for 22 days.
Pope John Paul II met with his would-be assassin, Turkish terrorist Mehmet Ali Agca, in Agca’s prison cell in Rome. Italy’s President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi pardoned Mehmet Ali Agca in 2000 and Italian Justice Minister Piero Fassino then authorized Agca’s extradition to Turkey to serve a prison sentence for an unrelated killing.
During a private meeting following Pope John Paul II’s weekly general audience in St. Peter’s Square, the pope embraced Muzeyen Agca, mother of Mehmet Ali Agca – the man who shot the Pontiff 15 years earlier. Agca’s lawyer said she plans to file appeals with Italian authorities either for his pardon or transfer to Turkey.
According to a Vatican spokesman, the Pontiff personally intervened with Italian authorities to gain the release and pardon of Mehmet Ali Agca, the Turk who sought to kill him in 1981. The Pontiff, speaking to children at a Rome parish on Oct. 10, 1999, said the teachings of Christ instructed him to forgive Agca.
