A New Way to Experience God’s Word – her.BIBLE
We are excited to share a new resource with you that we hope you will love and that will draw you closer to the heart of God! An audio Bible in women's voices. Here's how it came about:
A couple of years ago, I had a lot of “windshield time” in rush hour traffic, getting to and from work. I listened to several audio Bibles, but the longer I listened, the more it felt as if something was missing. After searching apps to find different readers, I realized most free apps accessed the same list of male readers. There was a silent space.
I was simply looking for a pleasant woman’s voice to read Scripture with compassion and kindness, yet with the authority God’s Word deserves. I wasn’t looking for dramatization, background music, or additional resources to make it an interpretation, just a focus on the words themselves.
In talking with others, I discovered my longings were shared by other women. From past ministry, I had met women who had experienced abuse or had emotional barriers to listening to God’s Word in a man’s voice. Globally, I knew there was a hunger for God’s Word in heart languages where emerging technologies were breaking ground.
I wondered, if a modern language Bible could be recorded in English, available free, with voices from different ethnicities, could it connect with younger listeners and those who learn orally? Could it serve as a model to women leaders in other language groups and be replicated in a way they could use to reach others?
Thus began the journey of her.BIBLE in women’s voices. It began with a simple, personal longing. Now that this new edition of God’s Word is available, we hope you will love to Listen as you go about your day. We pray you will Connect with God on a deeper level.Share His Word with your friends. Share what touches your heart and how you are growing and becoming the person God created you to be.
