A Bible listening programme
A segment of our population, for some reason or other, is unable to comfortably read the Bible and for this reason, sound is the medium through which the Bible is made accessible. These include, among others, the visually impaired, the elderly and the illiterate.
A small, rechargeable device, the AudiBible, designed to be used anywhere, makes it possible for individuals or listening groups to listen to the Word of God in their own language.
The Bible Listening Programme encourages groups to listen to the Bible together and to discuss what they have heard.
The complete audio Bible is currently available in English, Afrikaans, Sesotho, Sepedi, Setswana, isiXhosa and isiZulu. The Bible Society hopes to have the audio Bible available in all our languages in the foreseeable future.
Many people who would specifically benefit from the use of the audio Bible are, however, unable to afford one. For this reason, the Bible Society has a special Bible listening programme through which the special listening apparatus, the Audibible, is made available free of charge.
- everyone for whom the written word is no longer accessible
- everyone who is still involved with the recordings of the Bible in all of our languages.
