A truly remarkable approach to sharing the powerful Word of God has been made available to the world due to the application of modern technology to solve a communication dilemma: how do you share God’s Word with people who cannot, or will not, read? The solution: the audio Bible. The Bible says that “Faith comes by hearing,” and through utilizing the power of audio technology, people around the globe can be exposed to the life-changing knowledge that comes from hearing the Word of God.
For those looking for a small and easily portable audio version of the Bible, audio Bible Downloads used with an MP3 Audio Bible would work well. This version of the Bible can be downloaded onto your mp3 player, a tiny audio playback device that is about the size of a pack of chewing gum. The audio Bible mp3 format gives you a way to take your Bible study with you to listen to when you work out, as you commute in your car to and from work, while you ride the bus or train, or any other time you have free time that could be spent in a profitable way. Parents with small children will find that there are occasions when you are watching your children during nap times that you find yourself in need of a quiet activity, and this can be a great opportunity for using an mp3 audio bible with ear phones so as not to wake the children. You will likely be amazed at how much reading you can get done in the course of a day when you listen to the Book instead of picking up a hard copy.
The Bible comes in audio versions appropriate for children to use as well. Kids love new technologies, and if you give them the Bible on an mp3 player, they will likely find it to be “cool,” and will be more inclined to listen.
If you have a computer, there are several versions of the audio Bible on CD, or compact disc. These can be played on your computer’s CD drive, and listened to through your computer’s speakers. If you have children, you will be happy to know that there are Childrens’ Bible Stories on audio CD available, so you can be sure there is something wholesome for them to listen to on the computer.
Those involved in missions to third-world countries without reliable electricity service know that electronic device use there can be dicey. There are audio playback devices that have been built to run on solar power, so as long as there is sunlight to recharge the battery, people can listen to the Word of God in their specific native language. There are green units that provide digital-quality sound using solar power that provide enough volume that groups as large as 300 people can gather to listen. The audio bible is a great gift to the world, who might not otherwise be able to learn about the powerful message held in God’s Word.
