Digital Bible Platform Sees Bible Engagement By Over 100 Million People

Via streaming, podcasts and apps, ministry passes major milestone in digital Bible distribution in less than 3 years

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --  Faith Comes By Hearing began as a small tape lending library in 1972.  Originally known as Hosanna, their early work in providing Audio Bibles revolved around English recordings and focused on sales to U.S. churches.  In the mid-80's, the ministry began to record Audio Scripture in the various languages of the world, which they refer to as heart languages.  Going from cassette tapes to CDs and then to a solar-powered digital device they call the Proclaimer, the ministry conservatively estimates they reached over 50 million people with Audio Scriptures in their first 37 years of work.


Nearly three years ago, Faith Comes By Hearing (FCBH) introduced the Digital Bible Platform and began providing free access to these digital Audio Bible recordings through streaming, direct downloads from their site, podcast downloads in the iTunes store and on mobile devices via the family of apps.  As a result of this technology – and an ever-expanding catalog that now includes Bible recordings in over 700 languages – FCBH has seen Bible engagement from over 100 million people across their online platform.  

Those seeking God's Word are able to engage through text and audio, as well as video from the JESUS film and the ministry's newly introduced Deaf app.

"I remember starting out in ministry by handing out pamphlets on the street to people who passed by.  We never knew if anyone really read them or if it got them to read their Bible," states Jerry Jackson, found and president of FCBH.  "But now we can actually see when someone interacts with God's Word – what language they are listening to and how long they are listening, or how long they are viewing a video.  It's certainly an exciting time to be laboring in the field of Great Commission work."

While the ministry is recognizing this significant milestone, they are fully aware this is just one more stepping stone along the path toward their ultimate goal of providing access to the Good News in a format that can be used by every nation, tribe and tongue.
