Talking Bibles is dedicated to serving the "Great Commission" as commanded by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The Ministry provides "talking" Bibles contextualized in their native languages to leaders within communities of oral learners. The ministry trains leaders to use "talking" Bibles to share the good news of Christ, and then, supports the leaders to assist in nurturing of their congregations and their continued outreach to unbelievers. This approach, which rises up and equips indigenous leaders, has proven to be effective, as the "talking" Bibles attract multiple listeners within the village at a time -- giving birth to Christian churches.

Our mission stems from a strong conviction that everyone in the world needs access to the Bible. The purpose of Talking Bibles is to give non-readers and the blind access to the Bible in their native language. Our mission is to serve the Lord Jesus Christ by producing audio recordings of translated Scriptures in hundreds of languages and making these recordings accessible in the form of Talking Bibles for millions of people around the world who cannot read.
