Audio options added to Bible reading initiative

JACKSON, Tenn. (BP) -- Union University and LifeWay Christian Resources have released the "Reading God's Story Audio Bible," a recording of the entire Bible 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. The audio project is based on the RTBFL chronological reading plan developed by George Guthrie, a Bible professor at Union.

Guthrie noted that modern-day 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," Guthrie said. "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.

The audio Bible is being offered for free in a variety of listening formats. For more information, visit or get daily audio postings at


LifeWay's B&H Publishing Group, publishers of the RTBFL-related "Reading God's Story" Bible, also have produced an HTML5 reading plan app for the audio files. By visiting the app online at, anyone with a modern browser or mobile device can listen to the audio files and keep track of which ones they have listened to. The app is updated each day with a new reading.

A full list of apps associated with the Read the Bible for Life Initiative is available at
