Daily Audio Bible: listen, learn, live, love

If you’re making new year’s resolutions about eating, exercising, saving money, or listening to your spouse better,  here is one I  hope you will try.

Listen to or read the Bible  this year.  There are many ways to read the Bible but I invite you to join me in listening to the Bible at Daily Audio Bible.  


Brian Hardin reads the Bible every single day- a selection from the

  • Old Testament,
  • New Testament,
  • Psalms, and
  • Proverbs

so that he completes the Bible in one year. He and his team offer a unique Bible reading/listening opportunity.

If you don’t know much about the Bible, don’t worry. You will when the year is over.

Brian doesn’t just read the Bible; he

  • explains it,
  • points out its relevance to our world today,
  • encourages us to apply it to our lives and
  • to share its good news with our friends and family.

Besides English, several other languages are available, including Spanish, French, Chinese, Arabic, Portuguese, and Japanese.


There are special versions for


a daily Psalm and a daily Proverb

and a Chronological version-reading the books of the Bible in the order the events happened.

From the DAB Core Values 

In all that we do we have the goal of irreversible change.

It’s not education, though that certainly happens,

it’s not inspiration, though that may be a result and

it’s not encouragement, though we hope it happens…

It’s irreversible change – the transformation of hearts and lives that in turn empowers an awake and alert heart to influence those within their sphere of influence for irreversible change.

One of the best parts -DAB offers this wonderful opportunity free of charge.

You pay nothing for the app and use of the web site.

Of course, it costs money to produce something of this quality;  generous donations and the sale of books and other items on the website fund the project.

So please use the links above to check it out- you have nothing to lose. I’ll check in with you in a few weeks to ask how it’s going or you can let me know now.

Do you celebrate Christmas in July?

Isaiah 9: 6, ESV

For to us a child is born,

to us a son is given;

and the government shall be upon his shoulder,

and his name shall be called

Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,

Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

from the English Standard Bible 

Why am I sharing a Bible passage about Christmas in July? Not because stores may already be selling Christmas decorations.

This selection was read on Daily Audio Bible (DAB)  recently. I told you about DAB before and hope you’ve been listening to it with me daily or as often as possible.


I listen to the chronological version, meaning the text is read in the order it happened or was written, rather than the order the books are arranged in the Bible.

George Frideric Handel and Messiah

George Frideric Handel used this scripture from Isaiah in his famous work, Messiah, first performed in 1742, performed or heard by millions of people since then.


Although it’s usually performed at Christmas, Handel wrote it for Easter.

Handel’s father  was a barber-surgeon. Barber-surgeons were physicians in medieval Europe, who as the name suggests performed surgery, often treating wounds from war injuries. Eventually, surgery and barbery became separate occupations.

When is “Christmas” for you?
