Audio Bible Ambassadors

Audio Bibles is a very interesting concept and something being produced by Faith Comes By Hearing. They’re recording the New Testament in many languages and versions since they are an interdenominational organization. A big area for distribution has been Catholic Bibles in Latin America where groups are being formed to listen to the Bible.

The parishes listening through the New Testament are representative of a movement among the Catholic church in Latin America. During 2009, Audio Bibles in seven different languages proclaimed God’s Word in 10 Latin American countries. Demand is so great that plans are underway to send another 3,600 Audio Bibles this year.

“Right now, I am having to hold my hand on the faucet,” said Phil Kenney, the ministry’s manager for the Americas region. “We need a new supply of resources to meet the increasing demand.” He expects the number of Audio Bible listening groups to double by 2012.

The Audio Bibles have been well received. A Guatemalan priest said, “I’ve used Audio Bibles both at the parish and diocese level. People show interest, paying close attention. Above all, the children in the biblical catechism classes concentrate much more on the message. The congregation is motivated and shares what they have heard with their brothers.”
