When we first came in contact with Internet technology in 1994, we saw it as a powerful tool to support our mission. We have been recording the Bible in audio since 1973 and using every advancement in technology to accomplish this mission. We are thrilled with this partnership with Orchard and look forward to hearing reports of the Bible reaching every corner of our globe.
Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) January 23, 2007
The world's leading authority on Audio Bible recordings, Faith Comes By Hearing (http://www.fcbh.org), is partnering with the world's largest distributor of digital music, The Orchard. For the first time consumers will be able to download Audio Bibles from a larger variety of options than ever before. In January, Audio Scriptures can be downloaded in 164 different languages giving the majority of the world's population access to a digital Bible translation in their own language. Selections will be available through most major online digital music retail stores.
Faith Comes By Hearing President and Founder, Jerry Jackson, explained, "When we first came in contact with Internet technology in 1994, we saw it as a powerful tool to support our mission. We have been recording the Bible in audio since 1973 and using every advancement in technology to accomplish this mission. We are thrilled with this partnership with Orchard and look forward to hearing reports of the Bible reaching every corner of our globe."
Greg Scholl, chief executive of The Orchard, said: "Our agreement with Faith Comes By Hearing (FCBH) gives our customers access to the most complete archive of Bible recordings ever assembled. FCBH offers audio Scripture readings in more than 200 languages spoken by two thirds of the world's population, and the company's goal is to eventually cover every language on the planet. We're proud to support this goal through active engagement with our global network of digital media retail partners."
Through a cooperative partnership with the American Bible Society (ABS), Faith Comes By Hearing will be adding an additional 2000 languages to their Audio Bible catalog over the next 10 years. The ultimate goal of Faith Comes By Hearing is to have audio Scriptures available in every language spoken. Through a fund effort called the Global Scripture Fund, ABS will match contributions so that Faith Comes By Hearing may record and distribute Audio Bibles in the mother tongue among the poorest regions of the world.
All profits from the sale of the Audio Bibles distributed by the Orchard Company will go to support Audio Scripture recording and distribution to impoverished people groups throughout the world. For more information, log on to http://www.fcbh.org/.
