Sometimes life moves at a crazy pace. And while we’d love nothing more than to relax with a steaming mug of coffee and curl up with a good book, that’s not always in the cards. However, that doesn’t mean you have to miss out! There are some great Lutheran audio books and podcasts available today.
One of our favorite sites is https://www.audible.com/. Note: we are NOT part of an affiliate program nor do we make any money or have any incentive for referring you to audible.com. It just happens to be our favorite and we thought it good to share! Audible is a paid subscription service. As of this writing, you can access tens of thousands of audio books and podcasts with a basic membership subscription ($7.95 per month) with no limit to how many titles you can add to your library. An upgraded membership (Audible Plus) will cost you $14.95 a month and will give you even more access to current releases utilizing a credit system. The upgrade also offers opportunities to purchase audio books at a discount and add them to your library for future reading.
Now, the purpose of this blog post is to introduce you to some great LUTHERAN audio books and podcasts! We will list some of our favorite selections here.
