IBN Partners with Faith Comes By Hearing


Read the bible in your language. Audio available on most translations.
IBN Television is a ministry of CrossTalk International. One of the close partnerships that CrossTalk has is with the Bible translation and platform ministry Faith Comes By Hearing (FCBH). There ministry is focused on making sure that the translations of the Bible in the many languages of the world are also available to those language groups in audio form, and when possible, in visual form as well in addition to print. They have created what is known as the Digital Bible Platform (DBP) to house all of these languages in the cloud. The DBP is basically the Bible content brain. This partnership with IBN is how we are now able to provide more than 1,000 languages of the Bible right here on our website for people in any region of the world to be able to access.

Providing God’s Word free-of-charge to every person takes the entire range of available technology. Even when the Bible is offered in audio, video, and text, people can get it only by using whatever methods are open to them at the time.

Isolated communities lacking infrastructure require Proclaimers; the Deaf need sign language videos; those in areas hostile to the Gospel can rely on satellite feeds; and the technologically blessed among us can access God’s Word via mobile apps, websites, podcasts, downloads, and Internet radio.

So how is all this accomplished? It’s all powered by the Digital Bible Platform.

The DBP is the cloud-based “brain” that houses an ever-increasing collection of digital Bible content in languages spoken or signed by billions worldwide. Every digital file is standardized into a format that is not dependent on operating system, making the content completely accessible and the future possibilities virtually unlimited. Whatever innovative technologies are on the horizon, and even those that have not yet been thought of, will ultimately be compatible with this digitized Bible delivery.

This amazing resource, freely available to developers and ministry partners through an open API (application programming interface), is already revolutionizing Bible access on a global scale. With over 200 million users receiving free Scripture in their own language through the many available channels, the future prospects are limitless.
