There are more people in the world who would prefer to listen to a Talking Bible than read it.


Global Learning Preferences

An oral learner is a person whose mental framework is primarily influenced by spoken rather than literate forms of communication
— International Orality Network

According to the International Orality Network, there are an estimated 5.7 billion people in the world who are oral learners, people with basic or below basic literacy skills. That staggering number includes men, women, and children of all ages.

Most oral learners belong to cultures that do not teach with books but with conversations, narratives, music, and visual arts. For these people, reading is not their preferred method of learning. As a result, oral learners may struggle to understand the Gospel when their only access is the printed Bible.

The Talking Bible communicates God's message to oral learners in the method they most easily can understand.
