A New Way of Reading the Bible

After being a Christian most of my life and reading the Bible almost on a daily bases for a lot of years I have found a new way to read my Bible.  No, its not while swimming or anything like that and it isn’t actually “reading,” it is listening to God’s Word on MP3.  I know that the Bible recorded on cassettes or CD’s have been around for a lot of years but this is the first time I have taken the time to ingest the Bible by listening.

Wow.  It is like I have never heard some of these passages before.  A ministry out of Dallas called, “FaithComesByHearing.com”” has taken on the challenge of recording the Bible into as many languages of the world that they can afford to and send them to people in villages and towns who have never read the Bible before.  Their ministry discovered that many people groups couldn’t read even if the Bible was translated into their language.

After hearing their mission we decided to hand out free MP3’s to our church and asked our congregation to listen to the New Testament in the first 40 days of 2010.  I am about half way through and it is so refreshing.  What is making this experience so exciting is that the people of Faith Comes By Hearing didn’t just read the Bible in a monotone voice, they dramatized the Bible with many different speakers, music and sound effects.

If you would like to get on board, just ask for a free MP3 at church while they last.  If not, you can order one directly from their ministry at the link listed above.
