Looking for a way to keep the true meaning of Christmas alive -- even as you fight holiday crowds, deal with unruly relatives and cope with the other stresses that somehow appear during this time every year? One way is to take the story of Christ's birth with you on an iPod or MP3 player. "The Story of the Messiah," a richly textured weaving of the four Gospels of the New Testament in an audio format, is available for quick iPod, computer or MP3 download. The 28-episode program, which follows the life of Christ from birth, is narrated by an engaging cast with an inspiring original musical score.
"We're delighted to launch the downloadable version of 'The Story of the Messiah' at this magical time of year," says producer Russell Bond. "The first three episodes recount the Nativity and events leading up to it. These episodes remind us in an eloquent and moving way of the incredible gift to humanity that Jesus Christ is as we celebrate his birth."
Episodes can be downloaded individually or as a subscription. Subscribers download one episode a week for 28 weeks.
"Making 'The Story of the Messiah' accessible as a download was very important to us since more and more people are listening to audio on their computers, iPods and MP3 players," says Bond, "You can listen to any of the downloaded episodes anytime, anywhere. They are completely portable. No matter where you are or what you're doing, the message and inspiration are just a click away."
"The Story of the Messiah," from Sine Ministries, took 18 months to complete and is designed for all ages. It is part narrative, part action and part historical interpretation.
Subscription gift certificates to the weekly downloads of the 28 episodes are available by visiting http://www.annexaudio.com. The cost per episode is $1.29 and $24.95 for all 28. Excerpts from "The Story of the Messiah" are posted to the site. A six-CD, 7 1/2-hour version and illustrated collector's book are also available.
