Sonata Plus+ users can now enjoy all 83 hours of David Suchet’s Audio Bible.

BWBF’s technical team has been working hard to upload the six CDs so listeners have access to all 1,189 individual MP3 files.

It is the New International Version of the Holy Bible, read by Poirot actor David Suchet.

BWBF launched the audio today (Wednesday, August 24th).

Users will have access to the audio split into six sections: Law – five books; Histories – 12 books; Poetry – five books; Prophets – 17 books; Gospels – four books; Acts and Letters – 23 books.

Mr Suchet says of recording the audio that undertaking such a project was a massive challenge, albeit an exciting one.

BWBF’s IT Administrator, Dave Beard, said: “We were given the go ahead to stream the David Suchet Audio Bible due to the unique way in which we broadcast audio content over our Sonata service.

“It will be available to all our UK listeners who are using Sonata Plus+.

“We have ensured the experience the user has is the one intended by the publishers.

“Having the individual MP3 files allows for simple and quick navigation which is very supportive for daily Bible studies.”
