When the boys started school this fall, we had an opportunity to buy audio cd's of the Bible at a discount. Kelsey ordered a set. They're Tyndale's New Living Translation, and I didn't really pay them much attention.
I am not an auditory learner. This is a high class way of saying that I don't listen. Generally, if someone is trying to read me something, I impatiently grab the paper from them and say "let me read that...". When I read it, I get it.
I guess this is why I was so surprised to find myself loading them into my computer for transfer to my iPod as rapidly as I could (61 cds, 70 hrs, it's going to take a while...). In listening to these - in particular, the Proverbs - I am finding a newness to the Word. It is liberating to hear the proverbs and allow the power of the words to wash over me, giving me a few seconds of application opportunity without the stress of reading the next one.
Great stuff. I'm going to plug in right now.
