Leveraging the Power of the Internet to Share God’s Word

Posted on August 2, 2018 by .BIBLE Registry Categories: Examples

When it comes to the Word of God, we are passionate about making sure every people group has access to the Bible. For us, inclusivity has always been key.

In the early 1900’s, American Bible Society was honored to give Helen Keller, renowned author who was both blind and deaf, her first Braille Bible. The Book changed her life. In her memoir she wrote: “But how shall I speak of the glories I have since discovered in the Bible? For years I have read it with an ever-broadening sense of joy and inspiration; and I love it as I love no other book.”

We are not alone in our passion for inclusivity when it comes to the Bible. The people of Deaf.Bible share it too. On their website, they offer those who may be deaf or hearing impaired, the chance to engage with and learn about the Bible.

Some of the coolest features of the website are the quick sign language videos, telling short stories from different books of the Bible, offered either in chronological order, or by book name.

The website is also not exclusive to American Sign Language users! There are many different language options including Bulgarian, Nigerian, Russian, Mexican, Malaysian, Ghanaian, and Japanese sign languages.

It is an honor to have an organization like this leveraging the power of the internet through the .BIBLE domain to reach hearing impaired users all over the world.
