Audio Bible Ministry Announces the Word of God in 573 Languagesand Counting!(August 22, 2011)
Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) August 22, 2011
Faith Comes By Hearing has added eight new language recordings to their catalog of Audio Scriptures. In addition, single-voice recordings in Achuar and Zapoteco Mitla are being replaced with complete, dramatized New Testament recordings.
The new releases are:
- Antipolo Ifugao Philippines
- Bru Eastern Vietnam/Thailand
- Khmer, Northern Thailand
- Kinaray-a Philippines
- Kok Borok India
- Mizo India
- Murle Sudan
- Rote Indonesia
Combined, these eight languages represent more than 3.2 million people that now have an Audio Bible available in their heart language. These recordings are possible because of dedicated translation work by: Wycliffe Bible Translators, The Bible League, United Bible Societies and the Bible Society of India.
The 573 languages in their catalog are the single largest resource of Audio Bibles in the world. Spoken in more than 185 countries, these recordings represent a potential outreach to more than 5 billion people.
Faith Comes By Hearing offers free access to Audio Bibles through streaming and podcasts, while the Bible.is app for iPhone, iPad and Android devices now offers access to Bibles in more than 540 languages.
For those areas that do not yet have regular access to the Internet or mobile devices, Faith Comes By Hearing continues to reach out by providing Audio New Testaments on solar-powered Proclaimers for listening groups. As of July 2011, more than 290,000 Proclaimers are proclaiming God's Word around the world.
The ministry's goal is to record and provide Audio New Testaments in every translated language, making the fulfillment of the Great Commission a reality in our lifetime.
The average cost to record the New Testament in a people's heart language is $25,596, or $948 per book. Once recorded, the average cost to provide Gods Word in audio for an entire village is $157.
