Posted here are complete Told Bible Stories in various languages with no discussion. As well, we are formatting complete stories done STS Style With Discussion. As various languages come to us, and we are able, we hope to to post sample stories on this page. We plan to post some sample stories in audio and in video. (Click here for sample of Radio Style STS. Since it is a "one-way" interactive discussion with a radio audience, the story teller gives time to the listeners to think of their responses as they listen in on radios.)

Sample Bible Stories in English
At last! The recording of multiple Bible stories in English is seriously under way. These two stories are samples from “The Beginnings,” which are ten Bible stories, and one introduction to Satan. They cover a large part of Genesis, chapters one to eleven. Our goal is to record over 300 stories which can be used by everyone from non-literates to preferred oral communicators, and in particular for students in the STS-Oral Bible Schools.
We are using all of the English stories (done by multiple storytellers, men and women) as examples of conversationally and accurately told Bible stories for leaders who are recording in other languages.
These stories are being prepared in concert with By Design Ministries International. www.ByDesignVisuals.org
