Faith Comes By Hearing Announces API Access To Digital Bible Platform For Partnering Developers

Ministry seeks 'best and brightest' to partner in bringing God's Word to the world

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Faith Comes By Hearing (FCBH) began in 1972 as a small tape-lending library that allowed members to share Christian material on cassette.  Today, the ministry is excited to announce a level of sharing beyond the wildest imagination of anyone back at that time. The Digital Bible Platform – the world's largest platform of digital Bible audio, text and video – is now open free of charge to ministry partners and approved developers seeking to join FCBH in their Great Commission work around the world.

The access is provided through a Web API (Application Programming Interface), which allows integration of the content from the Digital Bible Platform into apps, websites and other software.  A very simple format for developers to work with and implement, the API system is already used by Faith Comes By Hearing for online listening, in their iTunes store, and within their entire family of Bible.is apps.

Very much a core value in all their work, Faith Comes By Hearing realizes that partnerships are the only way to truly reach the world with the Gospel.  In this newest instance, FCBH is providing access to the content (recorded Scripture in over 700 languages), and others will find creative and inventive ways to reach people from every corner of the earth in their own language.

"In the time of Christ and the Apostles, the Gospel message went from town to town by using the road system built by the Roman Empire," explains Troy Carl, FCBH vice president and architect of the Digital Bible Platform.  "Today, that Roman road is technology."

"The primary key to Scripture advancement in today's world is making technology and content available to the most creative minds in the world," continues Carl.  "Our hope is that the best and brightest developers from around the globe will use this access to provide God's Word in a way that is culturally significant and relevant to their communities."
