JACKSON, Tenn. – Jan. 2, 2012– Union University and LifeWay Christian Resources have released the “Reading God’s Story Audio Bible,” a recording of the entire Bible read by 38 members of the Union faculty and staff.
The audio Bible, in the Holman Christian Standard Bible translation, is part of the “Read the Bible for Life” biblical literacy initiative developed by George Guthrie, the Benjamin W. Perry Professor of Bible at Union. The audio project is based on the RTBFL chronological reading plan.
“We are so excited about the audio Bible project,” Guthrie said. “Modern believers are increasingly biblically illiterate, and that is due in part to a general illiteracy -- many people don’t read. Others simply find it hard to take time to read the Bible extensively.
“To provide people with a well-done, accessible audio option for daily Bible reading is an important ministry,” he continued. “We believe the ‘Reading God's Story Audio Bible’ will be widely used around the world in the years to come.”
Produced by Joshua Moore, assistant to the vice president for church relations at Union, the audio Bible features original music by recording artist Michael Card.
