Perhaps you saw an earlier article by the Evangelical Examiner about the audio Bible version of the “Christmas Story”. The free download is being offered by Faith Comes By Hearing, a ministry based in Albuquerque that translates the Bible into different languages. They are committed to reaching the many nations and peoples of the world with the Word of God in audio. It is estimated that 50% of the world’s population is illiterate. Translating the Bible into people’s native tongue is an enormous task, but what a marvelous way to spread the Gospel. Indeed, faith comes by hearing!
This year for Christmas the ministry is offering a free audio download of the Christmas Story – a dramatized reading from the New Testament Gospels of Matthew and Luke. This is a fine treat for us and could launch a new tradition for many families. Download the story and play it on your computer or MP3 player. It’s the modern equivalent of gathering the family around a radio. The story of the birth of Christ is marvelous and dramatic and this version uses multiple character voices, musical backgrounds and sound effects.
