Features

  • Listening Options

    Wonder Bible gives two options for listening as it comes with a built-in headphone jack and speaker system. It does not come with a set of earphones but is compatible with any standard pair.

  • Rechargeable Battery

    The portability of the Wonder Bible the Message is made possible by the charging cable attached to a 18650 lithium-ion battery which means no disposable batteries are needed to power your listening experience. There is a small battery icon on the screen giving you an idea of when you will need to plug your Wonder Bible back into an outlet.

Positive Aspects

  • Easy To Understand Language

    You will not need to be confused by ancient language that is not used in everyday conversation or be left asking what a particular verse meant. The message is a version of the Bible, written by Eugene Peterson, which takes historical, cultural and linguistic research into account. This creates an easier to understand account of the religious writings of the Christian faith.

  • Hands-Free

    Instead of sitting down with a hard copy of the Bible you can listen when you are cooking, doing dishes, working on a project around the house, commuting or a variety of other hands-on tasks.

  • No Physical Copy

    Sometimes it can take a while to flip to the exact book, chapter or verse that you want to read because of the thinness of the pages. The number of pages in a bible can also be quite substantial and hard to read if you have any wrist problems. You can take notes while reading and pause at any time to reflect on what you heard.

  • 30 -Day Money Back Guarantee

    The company offers a 30-day money back guarantee if the product is not what you envisioned and will pay whatever return shipping charges accrue if purchased from the official website.

  • Makes a Great Gift

    There are many occasions or milestones the Wonder Bible is ideal for such as christenings, first communions, joining a church, baptisms, Easter, birthdays and Christmas.

  • Narrator

    The narrator speaks concisely, clearly and has a lovely British lilt to his voice making it a seamless experience for most people.

Negative Aspects

  • Battery Icon

    The Battery Icon, while it shows the amount of power left in the product it doesn’t give an exact percentage thus making it hard to tell precisely how much listening time is left.

  • No USB Adapter

    You will have to purchase a USB wall adapter or plug this into your computer USB port. This will be an extra expense not included in purchasing this player.

  • Surcharge

    There will be a surcharge added to the order for the international shipping to Canada.

  • Visually Impaired Customers

    This device although using audio instead of the traditional print bible can be complicated with its coding system. It would not be impossible for a visually impaired person to navigate but it would take memorization and practice to familiarize them with the machine.

  • Possible Problems with All Audio Devices

    After considerable use, the audio can become warped if the volume is turned up at a high-level for extended periods of time. The speakers can start to become worn down or the machine could be faulty.

Does It Really Work?

Customer reports for the original Wonder Bible include many people who enjoyed this product, heralding it as precisely the devotional experience they expected when purchasing. Others received a product that did not work during the first listen or over time the Wonder Bible player could no longer connect with the memory card inside.

How it's Different from Competitors

This device is specifically designed for listening to scripture without any distractions that could come with listening on an app on your smartphone or tablet. This device offers a more isolated and meditative experience which requires all of your attention.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Power On

    If this is the first time using your Wonder Bible charge it before using it. To turn on your device hold down the button with the power symbol on it. The device after rebooting will commence play at the exact location when you last turned off your device.

  2. Finding Chapter Code

    To find the chapter you want to listen to you must look at the codebook to find the unique six-digit code to input. The codes can be found in the back of the instruction manual or on the backside of the Wonder Bible player.

  3. Inputting Chapter Code

    The first number will either be one, two or three: one denotes the Old Testament; two denotes the New Testament and three is meditation music. The next two digits are the book number and the three-digit number at the end is the chapter number. You will not need to input the dashes just enter the sequence of numbers.

  4. Navigating Controls

    You can press the skip button once, either backward or forwards, to go to the next or previous chapter. If you press down on the same button it will fast forward or rewind the chapter you are listening to. There is a volume wheel on the right top corner, which you can roll down to increase the volume. The M button is an easy way to change from the different sections of the Bible or to listen to the meditation music.

  5. After Use

    Hold down on the power button to end your session. Plug your charger into the side of the Wonder Bible and let it sit for a few hours to charge.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Memory Card Issues

    If the screen is only displaying the words Idle or Load, the memory card may need to be reseated to make sure that it is inserted correctly. Use your fingernail or a quarter to push gently onto the memory card on the side, let it click out and then gently push it back in. If the memory card has fallen out completely insert it with the brass bars facing out towards you. It should be noted that some products memory cards fail and the machine will not be able to be used as a result.
