Bible Reading Tip
You can listen to an audio recording of
the Scriptures while following along in your
own Bible. This is especially helpful
through the names in the Old Testament and to
keep the pace from getting bogged down.
• Buy The King James Bible in MP3 audio 2 CD set for only $14.95. This recording can be legally copied for non-commercial use. It is read at a slower pace, which would help children follow along in their Bibles. Listen to a sample.
• Listen to the Bible online. Choose from six English versions (plus Spanish and other languages) at BibleGateway.com/Audio.
