Alexander Scourby was the First to Narrate an Audio Bible in the 1950s.


Audio Bible or spoken Bible are Bibles that are recorded in an audio format. The first audio Bible was narrated by Alexander Scourby in the early 1950s for the American Foundation of the Blind.  Scourby first recorded the Bible on long play records, then on an 8-track player, then on cassette tape and then later on audio CD’s. The Bible on cassette tapes was 72-hours long and took 72 cassette tapes to record the entire King James audio Bible.

This was the first time listeners had the capability of listening to the Bible instead of reading it. The benefits of an audio Bible were obvious and numerous. This was a tremendous technology leap for the bind since they now could have an audio Bible at their fingertips, rather than having someone to read to them. Anyone could listen to the Bible while doing other tasks so the Audio Bible redeemed peoples time as they could work and worship for the very first time.

The website was started in 1997 and is 21 years old, and in fact is older than by 6 weeks. The scourby website started by selling the Bible narrated by Alexander Scourby on cassette tapes, then when CD’s came along those were sold as well. was the first company to create a Bible App for the iPhone in 2007 and it sold on the iTunes store
