Courage for Life Bible, First-Ever Audio Bible Narrated Only by Women, is Released With Aim to Help At-Risk and Abused Women Hear God’s Word

Georgia-based Bible teacher Ann White has released the first-ever all female-voiced audio Bible, which was inspired by her ministry in prisons, to “strengthen, equip and empower the world for Christ.”

Called the Courage for Life Bible, named after her ministry and which can be listened to via the Courage for Life app, was recorded by 12 women, reading from the New Living Translation, according to Premier Christian News.

Grammy-nominated artist Amik Byram was also part of White’s audio Bible project.

“There are 200,000 women — the size of a small city — that are living in jails,” White, a survivor of childhood abuse, was quoted as saying. “Although they’ve made bad choices, they have found themselves with abusive men. … When we work with at-risk women, we find that a woman’s voice does not remind them of their abuser’s voice.”

As the group notes on its website, “More than half of Americans have read little or none of the Bible and 33% have never picked it up at all. Nearly 30% of Americans cite that they don’t have time to read the Bible, don’t read books generally, or don’t have a Bible.”

The women’s audio Bible addresses those challenges.

Women connect with women, “especially if they have abuse in their past,” the website continues. “Extensive research and clinical experience have proven, ‘the best way to help at-risk women and girls heal from substance abuse, trauma, and mental health issues, is to use gender-specific programs.”
