Passio, an imprint of Charisma House Book Group, publisher of the Modern English Version (MEV), has announced the addition of the translation to the YouVersion Bible app.
Founded in 2008 by Life Church.tv, YouVersion has become the world’s most popular Bible program for mobile devices, having been downloaded more than 140 million times to date. The user-friendly app is available at no cost for iOS, Android, Windows Phone and many other operating systems.
“In this generation, smartphones and tablets are essential conduits to reach more people with the Word of God,” said Tessie DeVore, executive vice president of Charisma House. “The incorporation of the MEV into YouVersion’s global platform enables more of today’s Bible readers, who value biblical truth, to take His Word into any environment and impact their world.”
The MEV is the most modern translation produced in the King James tradition in 30 years. This literal translation capitalizes references of God, seeking to maintain reverence for the Scriptures.
