Recently, a new mission-based organization, The Video Bible, launched the world’s first free video Bible.
The Video Bible has garnered global support from YouVersion, with more than 600 million app installations worldwide; the Gospel Coalition, with more than 16 million yearly website visits; and a licensing commitment from Biblica to use the NIV audio Bible, narrated by Max McLean.
Using the crowdfunded model, The Video Bible is committed to sharing the Word in video and audio format, which allows everyone (young, old, dyslexic, illiterate, disabled, and perfectly healthy) to engage Scripture in a meaningful way in today’s digital age.
Consider these stats:
- 75 million people, or 20 percent of the US population, are unable to read, and 35 million are dyslexic, making the written word difficult to process.
- For 54.1 million senior citizens, reading has become increasingly difficult. That means that nearly one-third of the population of the United States has limited ability to experience the message of the written Bible.
The Video Bible will serve this need not only in the United States but also around the world. For more information, visit their website.
