Is listening to the Bible just as good as reading it? Or do we risk missing something if our Bible intake comes mainly through listening?
We get a lot of questions about audiobooks. Here’s today’s question: “Pastor John, hello! My name is Robert, a transport truck driver in eastern Canada. I tend to get the majority of my Bible ‘reading’ done while listening to the Bible as an audiobook while I work and drive. That includes listening to many of the episodes of this podcast also, so thank you! But would you feel that listening to the Bible has the same intended effects as actually physically reading it with the eyes? Keep in mind I can tell my phone to rewind a chapter if I want to hear it over again (to keep things legal on the road). Thank you for any advice you can give!” Pastor John, what would you say to Robert?
