Great New Resource for Children


Word of Promise

Next Generation New Testament

On MP3 CDs

Thomas Nelson Publishers

International Children’s Bible Version

There’s a great new resource out from Thomas Nelson Publishers. It’s a set of MP3 CDs of the New Testament. What makes this set of CDs special is it is geared for children. Many children stumble over reading the Bible because their reading vocabulary is not quite where it needs to be to understand the Word of God. But with this new resource, children will be able to listen to the New Testament being read to them whenever they want. I’m amazed nobody ever thought of this before. It is such a great idea. This set of CDs is in the Internation Children’s Bible Version and features over 100 actors as various characters and great sound effects. It will keep the attention of ever an ADHD child.  You can order it from Amazon or Thomas Nelson. However, if you go to my website, you can order from My Favorite Books, and proceeds will benefit Revival Fire 4 Kids Ministry. Please recommend this resource to the parents in your church. There’s more information below.

Dramatized Audio Bible

Now the entire New Testament is ready for the Wired Generation.

Today’s youth ingest media at a faster rate than any previous generation. And they can’t get enough! The Word of Promise: Next Generation – New Testament is the perfect way for young multi-taskers to absorb Scripture. This ambitious recording makes the Word accessible to more kids than ever before.

Starring a Hollywood-level cast of young talent including Cody Linley (Hanna Montana, Dancing with the Stars) as Jesus, AnnaSophia Robb (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) as Mary Magdalene, Jordin Sparks (American Idol Winner) as Elizabeth, Cobin Bleu (High School Musical) as Peter, Alyson Stoner (Cheaper by the Dozen) as Martha, and narrated by Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings).    The project includes informative book introductions by author Max Lucado and his daughter, Jenna Lucado, who is a speaker on the Revolve® Tour.

The Word of Promise: Next Generation is much more than just a word-for-word reading: it’s an all-star cast performing audio drama with a rich original score and Hollywood special effects. When Jesus walks on the water, kids will feel like they’re in the boat. When Peter waits in the courtyard during the Lord’s trial, the fire will crackle. The ambient sounds of the Holy land, the breath-taking musical score, the world-class young actors and the timeless Word of Promise all combine to deliver an unparalleled achievement.

Set includes 24 hours of audio drama on 3 mp3 CDs and a bonus 75 minute Behind-the-Scenes DVD featuring interviews with the actors.
