Tell others about Jesus like Johnny Cash did:
Though we are not all called to the ministry of a Pastor, Foreign Missionary, Prominent Evangelist, or Christian Writer, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians. Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). ____________

The Spiritual Legacy of an American Turned Legend
"I heard the wife of an Eastern Orthodox Priest say that this was her favorite audio version of the Scriptures, the one that she listened to constantly.
She also stated that Johnny Cash had a great voice, and was a really good reader.
So we obtained a copy for our monastery.
All of our Monks love it, this reading of the New King James Version, and we highly recommend it as one of our favorites."
Johnny Cash's Own Comments On This Recording:
"To turn the written Word into the spoken Word has always been my dream.
But little did I dream that speaking the New Testament aloud in its entirety would so much further enrich my spiritual life.
I approached each recording session with fear, respect, awe and reverence for the subject matter.
I also did it with a great deal of joy, because I love the Word.
As I read the words of the Lord I prayed to feel and show only his love with a clear deliverance of his messages, constantly aware that He is speaking to me, and that when I am reading His words, I am not Him.
I have strived against reading any personal interpretation into the scripture.
The most powerful, uniquely dramatic words ever written do not need any special attempt on my part to "sell" them.
For the New Testament of Jesus Christ is a narrative of great depth and beauty, engaging stories, lessons both entertaining and academic, and stark pronouncements of attention-grabbing subjects and word-picture prophecies.
Throughout the many hours of recording, my great inspiration was the underlying current of his abiding love.
I chose the New King James Version because it retains much of the beauty and classic prose and poetry of the original King James Version yet is easily understood by those who might have said, 'I've read the Bible but don't understand it .'
Give it a try and share with me a new dimension of blessing in the spoken Word ."

A Review by David Crumm:
Here's what absolutely amazes
me about Johnny
Cash -- and the reason that,
after more than 30 years in journalism, I have to admit I still have
such an emotional reaction to this country singer -- is that his famous
struggles with temptation and faith have directly crossed over to the
His concern for the poor and marginalized clearly wasn't just another star's hobby.
In fact, I went back and purchased DVDs of some of
Cash's TV shows, because I'm so intrigued by this man, this
artist, this man of faith.
There's nothing flashy in this recording, which was done back in the
1990s and doesn't have any of the Hollywood special effects that are
popular in current audio Bibles.
But that's not a bad thing. I'm not a King James reader, on a regular basis, but there's something about the poetry of this particular translation -- coming to my ears in that voice of The Man in Black, knowing some of the incredible spiritual journey that he pursued through these years -- and the overall effect is mesmerizing. ___________________________
