This upgrade is part of the overall mission of this ministry to cover the earth with God's Word. That world also includes the online community.

Never in history has it been possible to send the Word of God around the world instantly and at no cost. But that's exactly what's happening at FaithComesByHearing.com.
This website, the virtual home of the world's foremost Audio Bible ministry, was recently updated and now serves as an online Audio Bible distribution center. Internet surfers, webmasters, bloggers and social network users have the ability to spread the Word of God in audio using popular sites such as MySpace, Facebook, Digg and Reddit.
"Our site now functions more as a ministry tool for online users who desire to spread God's Word digitally and less as an information platform," said Troy Carl, Faith Comes By Hearing's national director.
"The website offers many ways for people to get engaged in Scripture listening and, in turn, to reach the world with God's Word in audio," he added.
For those who want to use online technology for that purpose, Faith Comes By Hearing has developed an Audio Bible widget. Webmasters, bloggers and social network users can place this Audio Bible sampling software onto their websites, blogs or social network profiles. Visitors to those sites can then listen to a sample of any of the nearly 300 Audio New Testaments in Faith Comes By Hearing's collection before choosing to download their own free Audio Bible. This widget is featured on the new "Link to Us" page, which also contains "cut and paste" links, website code, banners, graphics and logos.
The "ShareThis" link allows users to post their favorite Faith Comes By Hearing stories on their MySpace, Facebook and Twitter profiles, as well as share content through emails, text messages and AOL Instant Messenger.
Carl said visitors can still download free Audio Bibles, subscribe to Audio Bible podcasts and listen to stirring stories and testimonies about God's Word at work.
At the "Subscribe To" page, users can stay informed by subscribing to monthly ministry emails that deliver inspiring testimonies, worldwide prayer needs and the latest ministry news to their email address.
The website also underwent a few cosmetic changes, such as a revamped visual design, an interactive multimedia Flash player and simpler navigation.
"We wanted to increase and simplify users' abilities to engage in the Word of God and share it with their online communities. All these enhancements make FaithComesByHearing.com more interactive and navigable," said Carl. "This upgrade is part of the overall mission of this ministry to cover the earth with God's Word. That world also includes the online community."
