Our take: 'BibleStick' is a pocket-sized, digital audio device that is growing in popularity and demand. BibleStick plays the entire New Testament and has been used by military chaplains and service members to help support spiritual growth. The software is funded mostly by donors who contribute financially so that the BibleStick can be provided at little or no cost to U.S. service members.
A Christian software developer that creates "BibleStick" pocket-sized digital audio devices that can play the entire New Testament is reporting that requests for its product have spiked higher than ever before as the July 4 holiday approaches.
Faith Comes By Hearing (FCBH) said in a statement that since 2008, more than 218,000 units have been freely distributed to more than 1,000 chaplains who have used them during pre-deployment briefings, counseling sessions, chapel services, Bible studies and upon direct request of service members. The organization was established in 1972, and is celebrating its 40th year of ministry.
FCBH also revealed that those demands were rising, and as of the first half of June, more than 80 chaplains have asked for over 20,000 Military BibleSticks to be used in the Army.
