SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, (May 27, 2011)The Divine Office Catholic Ministry, in partnership with Surgeworks Inc., a Salt Lake City-based application developer and graphical interaction design firm, has announced a new app for the Apple Mac App Store based on 20 versions of the Bible in six different languages.

The Bible App features scriptures in English, German, Italian, French, Spanish and Croatian. Users can access twenty English, Latin and Greek versions of the Bible:

American Standard Version (ASV)

American King James Version (AKJV)

Darby Bible (DBY)

Douay-Rheims Bible, Challoner Revision (DRB)
