The new ESV Hear the Word Audio Bible provides more than 75 hours of Bible reading, for listening at home, in your car, or for loading on an MP3 player. The ESV Hear the Word Audio Bible is ideal for busy commuters, people on the go, and for the visually impaired—anyone who prefers to listen to as well as read the Bible.
