Why buy a Talking Bible?

You can have a brand new experience with God’s Word!

The Talking Bible captures a classic Bible style look with its black and gold book shaped design.

Sit, relax, and turn on the Talking Bible. Or take a walk and listen. Sometimes all you need to rouse your spirit is a simple to use audio Bible.

Listening to God’s Word gives you new insights into the timeless truth. Let God’s Word minister to your soul. Watch your heart change.

Perhaps your mother may have difficulty reading because she is getting older and her eye sight isn’t as it once was. The Talking Bible is easy for her to use.

Available in the more traditional colors of black and gold, the Talking Bible, with its dedicated buttons that take you from book to book and chapter to chapter is an ideal tool for chaplains too.

Maybe you have an uncle staying in a convalescent home, and he can’t get to church like he did before. Imagine how blessed he would feel being able to listen to God’s precious Word any time of the day or night.

God’s Word is a constant companion to those who memorize Scripture. The Talking Bible helps you to hear the Word clearly, so that memorizing important passages becomes easier.

If you have a friend visiting from another country, the Talking Bible could be available in their language too.

You or your church might even be going on a short-term mission trip to some faraway place. Take a Talking Bible with you on your mission trip. Give it as a gift to someone you meet along the way. Your mission will be a success.

You might even organize a small group gathering to share your Talking Bible with friends, family and neighbors. Bring people together. Listen to God’s Word. You will be blessed as you listen to the Bible.

The built-in solar recharging system allows you to take the Talking Bible anywhere, even on camping trips off the grid.

Suppose your friend lives in a remote place where there isn’t a school. Many people in different parts of the world do not have access to formal education. The Talking Bible was developed in part to help poor readers become better readers, and to promote literacy. Non-readers too gain complete access to God’s lifesaving Word through the Talking Bible.
