"Good News" audio-visual


The Good News is an evangelistic Bible teaching audio-visual. It presents a quick Bible overview from Creation to Christ's resurrection in 20 pictures, with a further 20 pictures of basic teaching on the Christian Life. It is particularly suited to bring the Gospel message and basic Christian teaching to oral communicators.

The pictures are clear and brightly coloured to attract those who may not be used to visual teaching presentations. See the script and sample pictures here.

Audio Recordings

These are available in over 1300 languages, and are designed to be played along with the pictures. Playback may be paused from time to time to give opportunity for questions, discussion and further explanations as necessary.

The recordings have been made, where possible, using mother tongue speakers with clear voices who are respected in the local community. Local music and songs are sometimes added between pictures. Various checking techniques are used to ensure the accuracy of translation and communication.

The recordings are available in MP3 format for downloading, and also CD and/or cassette format. (Not all formats are available in all every language.)

Printed Materials


These are A3 flipcharts (420mm x 300mm or 16.5" x 12") spiral bound at the top. They are suitable for large groups of people.


These are A5 booklets (210mm x 140mm or 8.25" x 6") stapled. They are suitable for small group and individual use.

Pocket Books

These are A7 pocket books (110mm x 70mm or 4.25" x 3") stapled. They are ideal for individual use.

Written scripts

These are available online in simple English and many other languages.

These scripts are a basic guideline for translation and recording in other languages. They should be adapted to suit the language, culture and thought patterns of the people. Some terms and concepts used may need a fuller explanation or even be omitted in different cultures. Appropriate local stories and applications may be added to the scripts to better illustrate the basic teaching of each picture-story.

Flipchart Carry Bags

Carry bags can be used to hold several flipcharts and/or other materials.
