ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Faith Comes By Hearing has added 10 sign languages to their expanding catalog of recorded Scripture that now stands at 797 languages. These translations join American Sign Language (ASL) on the ministry's Digital Bible Platform and will be available shortly on the Deaf Bible app and at www.DeafBible.com.

Combined, these newest releases represent over 7.2 million Deaf who now have God's Word available in their own sign language.
Faith Comes By Hearing (FCBH) remains committed to the mission of making God's Word freely available to everyone in their heart language and is encouraged that supporters continue to help make this possible. The ministry is also grateful to the partners whose hard work and dedication made these recordings possible. For this month's sign language releases, they are: Bolivian Bible Society, French Bible Society and DOOR International.
"As a ministry with a long history of providing Audio Bibles, we are humbled and honored to be blessed by God with the technology to bring His Word to the Deaf around the world," states Jerry Jackson, FCBH founder and president. "We look forward to providing digital access to God's Word in many more sign languages as these videos are produced and made available for the Deaf Bible app."
Jackson has seen the growth of a small tape lending library established in 1972 to what is now the world's largest resource of digital Scripture content. Collectively known as the Digital Bible Platform, Faith Comes By Hearing offers free access to this digital collection of Scripture via downloads, podcasts, Internet radio and satellite TV, while the Bible.is and Deaf Bible apps for mobile devices offer access to God's Word right from the palm of your hand. Approved developers, broadcasters and ministries can also have free access to this content to incorporate into their apps, software, websites and radio/TV programs.
The ministry's goal is to record and provide access to the Word of God in every translated language, making the fulfillment of the Great Commission a reality in this generation.
