About This Week's Series
Of the 7,140 languages in the world, 2,500 have at least a New Testament that has been translated into their language, and another 1,000 have some portion of the Bible in their language. The rest have nothing. For some, the work of translation has not even begun. Join Dr. Ankerberg and Morgan Jackson from Faith Comes by Hearing over the next several weeks to learn how you can help give God's Word to the World.
Audio Bibles are essential in areas where many people are unable to read a printed Bible and in villages where oral communication is primary. This is why we have partnered with FCBH, a ministry seeking to reach those who have never heard about Jesus by providing audio Bibles in their heart language. And because of your generous response over the last few years, there are now almost 6 million people sitting in listening groups each week hearing the Bible for the very first time. It is estimated that half of them, about 3 million people, have become new believers.
Dr. Ankerberg never set out to launch the world’s most-watched Christian apologetics television program...
As a speaker and evangelist, Dr. Ankerberg spoke on university campuses, at churches, conferences, and other events. While speaking at a Youth for Christ summer camp, he was first asked to host a Kansas City Christian television program. Structuring the program with a debate-format, the show quickly caught the attention of other networks. After moving to Chattanooga, Tennessee to serve another media ministry, The John Ankerberg Show was picked up on CBN, a new network that soon expanded nationwide. Within a short time, Dr. Ankerberg’s side project quickly became a full-time ministry in 1980, renting office space and studio time to produce additional programs.
