reading Scripture on an audio Bible? You get something that is refreshing and different!

The Word Becomes Flesh, the new audio Bible specifically for women, promises to be just that.

The Word Becomes Flesh is the complete New Testament read by some of today’s most inspiring female voices. The Word Becomes Flesh features the bestselling New Century Version (NCV)™ translation, which was made popular through the success of the #1 bestselling BibleZines™ (unique New Testament Bibles in fashion magazine guise). This all-women audio recording features 39 well-recognized authors, musicians and speakers, sharing the Scriptures with listeners anytime, anywhere.

“People today, particularly women, lead such busy lives. We know and understand that finding time to read the Scriptures can be difficult. When we looked at creating an audio Bible to help people connect with the Bible, we discovered that other audio Bibles in the marketplace simply weren’t engaging,” says Laurie Whaley, Vice President of the NCV translation. “So we assembled a team of well recognized and beloved women to read the Bible and we added a unique musical score to create an audio Bible that is engaging – people really want to listen to the Bible! Simply put there isn’t anything like The Word Becomes Flesh in the marketplace today.”

Dorinda Clark Cole comments on her involvement on the project, “It was wonderful to hear the great gospel read in such an authentic and engaging way. The Word Becomes Flesh has such a life changing message and makes you feel like you are right there in the Bible times....... It is a ‘must have’ in my collection of Bible cd's.”

All of the readers featured on The Word Becomes Flesh have donated their royalties to Mercy Ministries, and Thomas Nelson has agreed to match their donations. Additionally, ten percent of the product sales will also be donated to the organization. Mercy Ministries is a non-profit residential program for girls ages 13 to 28 who are dealing with problems like eating disorders, chemical addictions, pregnancy, depression and abuse.

The unique features of The Word Becomes Flesh include an original music score which adds flare to the powerful text, an engaging presentation of the Scriptures from the 39 talented readers, a canvas tote case, and 27 personal testimonies from girls who have been helped through Mercy Ministries. With passion and fervor, their emotional stories introduce each book of the New Testament, and vocalize how the Word can become flesh in our own lives.
