This dramatized audio Bible is worth sacrificing your nightly screen time

You arrive home from work, eat dinner, move to the living room, put your feet up, and turn on the TV. Does that sound about right? I’m not passing judgment. I’m speaking from experience.

Recently, my wife and I have fallen into a better routine. We arrive home from work, eat dinner, move to the living room, put our feet up, and turn on a dramatized audio Bible. We’ve traded an hour of Netflix for an hour of listening to God’s epic word which we have found to be much more enjoyable, not to mention rewarding.

(An hour each night will get you through the entire Bible nearly four times in one year.)

I’ll spare you a lecture on why you should choose the Bible over mindless television. I assume you’ve already heard it. Instead, I’ll just offer a helpful suggestion on making the transition should you choose to do so.

Consider the NIV Dramatized Audio Bible. Contrary to conventional wisdom, an audio version of the Bible doesn’t have to be boring. This dramatized audio Bible is not only exciting, but it also makes following Scripture a little easier. Dialogue is performed by various actors and actresses, so you’ll never get confused about who is speaking. Relevant background noises and music raise the experience to a whole other level.

Bible Gateway even offers a free version of the NIV Dramatized Audio Bible on both their website and mobile app. Enjoy.
