About

We are building a website to allow SonicBiblia™ to be available worldwide and free of charge. A fully functional website will help more people in more places meditate on God’s Word and apply it to their lives. SonicBiblia™ Inc. has a licensing agreement with Crossway Books and Bibles to use the English Standard Version® (ESV®) of the Holy Bible in all memorization lessons. In the future, we will expand to other English translations and to other languages! Ultimately, our website will help people meditate on God’s Word and memorize Scripture. Take a look below, to see how our website will work. Soli Deo Gloria

Step #1

Visual activation is the first step. Spend a few seconds reading the verse & reference and briefly think about its meaning.

Step #2

Listen to a SonicBiblia™ memorization lesson from start to finish, for any verse you have chosen. Each lesson lasts approximately 10 - 15 minutes. The lesson will lead you through a series of spaced repetitions, laying the neural pathway for memory recall. 

Listen to a lesson:

These sample lessons are intended as examples only. Memorization works best when the learner chooses the Bible verse. In order to work properly, SonicBiblia™ memorization lessons require complete focus and uninterrupted attention. Long-term memories are only formed when they are periodically reviewed (as explained below).

Step #3

Periodic Review.

After completing a lesson, the system will immediately store it in your Archive and remind you to review it after a short period of time. The system will move the lesson into your Review section, where you are prompted to review it by reciting the verse from memory. Once you have reviewed the Bible verse, you can send it back to Archive, where it will wait a slightly longer period of time before returning again to your Review section. This process will follow a graduated interval recall methodology, prompting you to review each verse before you forget it. This process will continue indefinitely, with one year being the longest period of time between reviewing a verse. SonicBiblia™ uses a system of spaced repetition to capture the verse in your short-term memory and a system of graduated interval recall to ensure each memorized Bible verse becomes part of your long-term memory.

But he answered, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4 ESV

If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. John 15:7-8 ESV

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Joshua 1:8 ESV

Oh how I love your law! It is my meditation all the day. Psalm 119:97 ESV

And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. Deuteronomy 6:6-7 ESV

I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. Psalm 119:11 ESV

Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. John 17:17 ESV

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Colossians 3:16 ESV

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2 ESV

but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, I Peter 3:15 ESV

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. II Timothy 3:16-17 ESV

I delight to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart.” Psalm 40:8 ESV

Risks and challenges

Since its inception, we have worked diligently to accomplish the task set before us and by God’s grace, many of the initial steps have been accomplished.

Our organization incorporated 2 March 2017, officially becoming SonicBiblia Inc., a non-stock corporation organized exclusively for charitable, educational, religious, or scientific purposes under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. SonicBiblia™ filed for trademark registration with the USPTO 18 May 2017. On 2 August 2017, the IRS approved our 501(c)(3) status, officially making SonicBiblia™ Inc. a registered US public charity, exempt from Federal taxes and qualifying for all donations to be tax deductible for our patrons.

Several thousand Scripture memorization lessons have been created. The concept and design of the website have been developed. We now face challenges related to the creation and launch of the website. Through a tendering process, we have narrowed the bidding down to two capable web development companies and we have critically reviewed their project proposals. Both companies offer value for money, relative to the technical challenges involved in building and maintaining our website.

Our team is fully committed to commissioning and managing a website to launch SonicBiblia™ worldwide and free of charge. When our Kickstarter campaign has brought in the necessary funds, we intend to move quickly to the final stage of negotiation with both web development companies. After making a prayerful decision, and signing the contract, our website will be built within 12-15 weeks. Following an initial period of beta-testing, the SonicBiblia™ website is scheduled to launch to the general public in July 2018.

We acknowledge that, in human terms, the challenges are considerable. Nevertheless, we believe we have been called to this vital ministry and we are confident that, as the 19th century missionary Hudson Taylor once observed, “God’s work done in God’s way will never lack God’s supplies.”

Thank you for your partnership in this ministry.
