ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Dec. 22, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A recent LifeWay Research survey reports that 91% of Americans celebrate Christmas. However, the results showed that only 28% of the country reads or tells the Christmas story from the Bible.
Faith Comes By Hearing, the world's foremost Audio Bible ministry, hopes to have a positive impact on those findings as they announce their annual release of "The Christmas Story," a free Audio Bible program about the birth of Jesus Christ.
For the last four years, Faith Comes By Hearing has produced this family-friendly program – which runs about 11 minutes – to help people engage in the Bible during the holiday season and hear the Christmas story in a dramatic, audio format.
"The Christmas Story" is a word-for-word Audio Bible special taken from the New Testament Gospels of Matthew and Luke. This audio recording was produced using multiple character voices, musical backgrounds and sound effects.
Here's how you can get this free holiday program:
- Download or listen online at www.FaithComesByHearing.com
- Via podcast through the iTunes store.
- By texting "CHRISTMAS" to BIBLE (24253)
The program has also been made available, free-of-charge, for radio stations to air.
Founded in 1972 as a non-profit organization, Faith Comes By Hearing records and uses Audio Bibles to reach and disciple the world's poor and illiterate people. Currently, the ministry has Scripture recordings in 500 languages.
