A passion to offer all people equal access to the Word of God so that they can experience the hope and salvation of Jesus Christ.

is a company that offers the world's largest catalog of audio Bibles.  Currently, the company is reaching many nations around the globe, with many tools...one being their "Proclaimer" audio Bible.
"We consider the Proclaimer to be a gift from God. Why? Because the inspiration for it came during three days of fasting and prayer by the entire staff of Faith Comes By Hearing. The Proclaimer is a digital player dedicated to playing God's Word in the local heart language. See how it works!" - Faith Comes by Hearing.
The Proclaimer was developed mainly as an audio Bible device for illiterate people who may not have another source of hearing God's Word. Inside the device is an installed microchip which has the recorded New Testament in the heart language.  The sound is digital quality and loud enough to be heard by an entire village. 

The device has a battery; however, it has a solar panel.  As long as there is sunlight, the Proclaimer will run even without battery power.  It is designed to play the entire New Testament over one thousand times.

Currently, 423 languages have been recorded, spoken by people in more than 152 different countries.  "And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come" (Matthew 24:14).Another device is the BibleStick an MP3 player that contains the complete bible. It is also comes in many different languages. There is a ministry to US service men using this
Through the sacrificial work of the Bible Societies, Wycliffe Bible Translators, and other translation groups, more people have access to the written Word of God than at any other time in history. Tragically, the effectiveness of this tremendous work has been limited because more than 50% of the world’s population is illiterate. They cannot read the Word of God, even when it is translated in their own language. The answer to this obstacle is provided from the Scripture: “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God” (Romans 10:17). That’s why Faith Comes By Hearing provides Audio Bibles to poor and illiterate people around the world.
