God's Word - Christmas 2018 - Ankerberg Theological Research Institute, John Ankerberg Show

Is God leading you to provide an audio Bible for someone who has never had a bible?

This holiday season, give a gift that truly matters.

Donate to this ministry this Christmas or give this special gift in someone's name. The many children and families who receive God's Word will appreciate this thoughtful gesture.

These audio Bibles make it possible for those who cannot read or do not have a Bible written in their language to hear God's message. Weekly groups started with just one audio proclaimer can grow into local churches where many lives are changed through beginning a relationship with God.

We know not everyone can go and take God’s Word to those who need it in person, but through your gift, you can join us and become a part of something bigger. Your help will lead those who need Him most to know Jesus.

Your Gift Can Change Lives

Field partners are blessing people in restricted-access countries with the Word of God on BibleSticks. One partner told us: “My wife visited a woman, Millie, who had been part of the local fellowship, but has been reclusive for years, avoiding contact with other believers. Millie has never stopped believing in Jesus, but was forced to cut ties to the local church because of
her husband’s family’s opposition to her faith. Millie hides her Bible out of fear that her in-laws will discover she is still a believer in Jesus, but this keeps her from being able to memorize Scripture (something she once enjoyed doing).


“My wife gave Millie a BibleStick in her heart language, which was very exciting for her. Now, she can listen and be encouraged by the Word freely.”

Chris confessed openly that he was often very drunk. Yet when he came to understand the Gospel his life changed enormously. The change, however, was not what Chris expected.

One day the Audio Bible listening program came to his church and what resulted was a miracle: Chris finally stopped drinking. He says that he does not remember doing anything extra—he simply listened to the Word on the Proclaimer. Soon he realized he was not drinking anymore; it no longer seemed attractive to him.

Not only did Chris notice this change, but the entire community noticed it as well. His Quechua brothers nominated him as a local representative with authority over eight other communities. Chris was able to respond to this great responsibility only by God’s help. He says: “The Word has changed me. Today, I feel a great love for my brothers that motivates me to serve them.…The Spoken Word, that which we hear on the Proclaimer, has completely changed my life so that I can serve God and my Quechua brothers.”

“My mother died shortly after I was born, so my father is raising me. One day when I got home from school, my neighbors told me that my father was admitted to the hospital. When I arrived, I saw my father on a ventilator. The doctors told me an operation was necessary to remove the large kidney stones or he may die. I didn’t know what to do. We had no money for the operation, and my relatives kept telling me that I was going to be an orphan.

“Suddenly, Matthew 17:20 came to my mind: ‘If you have faith like a grain of mustard seed…nothing will be impossible for you.’ I was part of a Telugu Audio Bible listening program and learning about Jesus, and we had recently heard and discussed this Scripture. The group leader let me borrow the Proclaimer to play for my father. After three days of continuous listening and prayer, doctors examined him and said that the stones had dissolved and there was no need for an operation. Praise God!
