Listening to the Bible in a year
Those who desire that people access and respond to the Bible need to present it in formats which appeal to people today and which work within their busy schedules. Each year, many resolve to read through the Bible in a year. One interesting alternative is to listen to the Bible in a year.
Nearly every major English version which has been produced has been recorded and can be listened to in cassette, CD, or mp3 format. Click here to see what versions and formats are available in audio.
For those who like freebies (I'm one), there are a few Bible versions which are available as free mp3 downloads:
- Bibles in other languages
- NET Bible New Testament
You can listen to free downloads of Max McLean reading the entire NIV in a year.
The ESV can be read and/or listened to in a year. There are two daily plans:
email or RSS feeds.
The Daily Audio Bible (DAB) is unique in that it uses different English Bible versions [e.g. CEV, The Message, NLT, HCSB, NIV, BBE (Bible in Basic English), GW, NRSV, AB (Amplified Bible), NKJV, GNB], each for a week at a time, for its daily Bible feeds. If you listen to the free DAB feeds, you can hear the entire Bible in a year.
You can also listen to the Bible in a year via feeds from BibleOnRadio.com. The readings are from the NLT first edition.
You can listen to daily readings of the NAB, but they will not take you through the entire Bible in one year.
You can listen to the Hebrew Bible via free downloadable mp3 files.
Do you know of any other Bible versions which are available in daily audio formats?
